We love Dr. Chorvat. so down to earth, intelligent, and easy to talk to and understand. takes her time with you and never makes you feel like she is rushed.

March 9, 2020 2:56 PM

She was very helpful.

March 9, 2020 2:56 PM

She was wonderful.

February 17, 2020 4:00 PM

Dr. Chorvat was very friendly, knowledgeable, and listened to our concerns. Since our daughter has missed many of the developmental milestones that she should have hit by this age, Dr. Chorvat gave us very useful information about steps moving forward in regard to meeting with an Early Interventionist and therapists.

January 23, 2020 11:09 AM

We love Dr. Chorvat!

January 13, 2020 1:59 PM

Dr. Chorvat is always very attentive and makes the kids feel comfortable when they come in for a visit. We are very happy with the care and attention she provides.

November 27, 2019 9:45 AM

Excellent - dr. took her time and made me feel like our time & concerns were important.

October 18, 2019 7:00 PM

October 6, 2019 7:00 PM

We love Dr. Chorvat! She has been my daughters' doctor since birth.

September 2, 2019 7:00 PM

We love Dr. Chorvat! She is always very friendly and answers all of our questions. Sometime it is hard to get an appointment with her as she books up quickly.

August 11, 2019 7:00 PM

excellent care

August 4, 2019 7:00 PM

This visit was great! As usual, Dr. Chorvat listened and provided wonderful service!

July 16, 2019 7:00 PM

Very nice to child and easy to talk to.

June 28, 2019 7:00 PM

Very happy we came back for a visit with Dr. Chrovat, as my daughters cold had developed into pneumonia, and she was very helpful with telling us what to look for in the few days after our visit.

June 24, 2019 7:00 PM

the doctor was absolutely wonderful!

June 24, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Chorvat is always on time, nice and friendly. She takes her time w/us.

Dr. Chorvat is always professional, friendly, and kind during our visits. Our daughter is not afraid of her visits, which is a huge win for a child her age.

great dr

May 12, 2019 7:00 PM

always friendly and helpful!

April 19, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr.Chorvat is good with toddlers explained thoroughly

April 10, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Chorvat very easily discounted our concerns about a recent seizure. She did not listen to our concerns and specifically denied our requests for further testing and evaluation. VERY disappointed!

March 22, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Chorvat is great. I always feel she takes time to listen and is very thorough.

March 13, 2019 7:00 PM

Peds did bare minimum to get to know my newborn & our family. Very obvious the goal is bottom line, fast turn around of patients & pushing agendas.

March 1, 2019 6:00 PM

I always have a positive experience with all doctors and nurses.

February 18, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr Chorvat is a wonderful physician. She takes her time during our visits and makes us feel comfortable.

February 12, 2019 6:00 PM

Establishing a relationship with a new provider - all went very smoothly.

January 29, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Chorvat is always extremely pleasant and understanding. My 3 year old is very traumatized from last time she got shots and was so scared and angry any time anyone went near her with something, but Dr. Chorvat was very calm and assured me she would rather she fight and scream than have my daughter be lethargic and without strength(she had a stomach virus at the time). I always leave feeling very relieved.

October 22, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Chorvat creates a calm and pleasant experience during appointments. She consistently follows up on previous concerns and also makes the kids feel important and respected during their appointments.

October 16, 2018 7:00 PM

wonderful as always!

September 10, 2018 7:00 PM

She's a great doctor. Dr Chorvat is caring, attentive, and thorough.

September 10, 2018 7:00 PM

I really like my child's doctor and look forward to chatting with her on my child visit.

August 14, 2018 7:00 PM

excellent experience, compassionate, answered questions and addressed concerns

August 14, 2018 7:00 PM

excellent care, showed compassion for our twins and answered questions and addressed concerns

July 30, 2018 7:00 PM

very easy to get scheduled and checked in. Dr was very helpful

July 22, 2018 7:00 PM

We absolutely love Dr. Chorvat and the team of nurses and staff. Always friendly and extremely helpful! I love too that Dr. Chorvat is local so it just makes us feel like she's a friend or neighbor, easy to talk to and always smiling!

July 20, 2018 7:00 PM

The provider was prompt and had a good bedside manner - very relaxed - no problems with this visit -

July 16, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. CHORVAT is an excellent doctor. she is always personable, caring and acknowledges and inquires about the health of my other kids. she is the doctor we prefer to see above all others.

June 25, 2018 7:00 PM

We love Dr. Karen Chorvat!

June 25, 2018 7:00 PM

The nurse that helped with X's shots was amazing. He really struggled with shots, and she handled the situation so thoughtfully. She skipped the alcohol rub when he said the smell triggered anxiety for him, and she was so gentle and patient. We are so grateful for her helping X get through his immunizations.

June 17, 2018 7:00 PM

vitals( weight, height, head diameter) measured vs what's entered into the database seems to be off all the time. would recommend the nurse to verify twice before entering that information. Imperhaps give nurses some Mobil device where they can enter the information the minute they measure it.

May 26, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Chorvat is always friendly and courteous. She treats my child with the utmost respect and always helps us to the best of her ability. Very pleased!

May 7, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Chorvat is amazing! She is always so kind and patient, and never makes me feel silly for asking questions. She is patient, and loving with X.

April 21, 2018 7:00 PM

I've always had a great experience getting into this provider and she always listens and gives advice as appropriate. We never feel rushed and she answers any questions we may have.

April 21, 2018 7:00 PM

great and quick!

April 16, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Chorvat was excellent. She was thorough and so nice. I really appreciated her getting us in.

April 16, 2018 7:00 PM

Prompt and courteous service

April 11, 2018 7:00 PM

We love Dr. Chorvat. She is great with our kids, listens and we would highly recommend her.

April 11, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Chorvat is amazing with our kids. We are so glad she is their doctor.

April 10, 2018 7:00 PM

this doctor is awful and does not listen to my child's needs

April 9, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Chorvat and nurses were extremely helpful and thorough when explaining care for my sick child. Staff is friendly.

April 8, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Chorvat is an excellent pediatrician.

March 19, 2018 7:00 PM

We love Dr. Chorvat! She's wonderful with our daughter.

December 19, 2017 6:00 PM

She is warm, kind, smart and doesn't rush. We feel very valued by the nurses and Dr. Chorvat. Unfortunately we may be switching to a state funded health care so this may have been our last visit!

December 15, 2017 6:00 PM

We absolutely love Dr. Chorvat. She takes time with the girls and they look forward to seeing her.

it was very nice and fast however as always

October 14, 2017 7:00 PM

I am so thankful for Dr. Chorvat's care. My son was sick for nearly a week. We were able to be scheduled in the same day I called with our concerns. After two days of still high temps, Dr. Chorvat's team made space to see my son, once again, on a Saturday morning. Dr. Chorvat did not oversee any symptom and provided holistic care. Wait times were so little and I was thankful my son did not have to wait while feeling sick for long periods of time. Thank you to every person at Dreyer from Pam the X-ray technician to the nurses who called with the lab results. Thank you for providing our family with comfort in a time of need.

October 9, 2017 7:00 PM

Pediatric check-up for just turned 18 and a 16 year old. Been seeing this pediatrician for years and received very good care.

October 8, 2017 7:00 PM

I love thus doctor! She talks to my child and is great with her. Easy to talk to and listens.

October 3, 2017 7:00 PM

As always, excellent care and concern for our daughter's health!

August 21, 2017 7:00 PM

Dr. Chorvat is wonderful and we are so happy to have her as our son's pediatrician. As first time parents, it's helpful to have someone calm, reassuring and knowledgeable. Her staff is wonderful too.

August 20, 2017 7:00 PM

Dr. Chorvat is an excellent physician. We love her! I wish she was a family practitioner so she could be my dr.! She treats my daughter so well, talks to her about her health, we laugh. It truly is a pleasure to know my daughter is cared for by the best. I refer her whenever I can. I live in Woodridge and refuse to change.
