Dr. Will is ALWAYS very attentive and through when I see her. I never feel rushed. I always feel that she listens to me and I feel very comfortable asking any questions I have.

July 27, 2020 4:47 PM

Dr. Will is one of the best. I drive close to 2 hours to have her as my Dr. after we moved (30 years ago). She is very thorough, knows her business and is very personable. Will always take time to answer any concerns.

July 27, 2020 4:47 PM

All my experiences with her have been good.

July 27, 2020 2:34 PM

I am very satisfied with the service I receive from Dr. Will and the Advocate staff.

July 27, 2020 11:07 AM

Excellent visit. Took a lot of time w/me - Very comprehensive. So happy she has a scribe so she can spend the time directly w/the patient.

July 27, 2020 11:07 AM

Very positive experience. She cares about her patients & takes significant time w/the visit - Just the best at what she does.

July 21, 2020 7:51 AM

Dr. Karen Will is a wonderful doctor and always takes the time to listen to her patients!

July 21, 2020 7:51 AM

The secretary & nurses aide were very friendly & compassionate.

July 20, 2020 6:30 PM

Dr. will is always very nice takes her time with me shows genuine interest in me and my health concerns.

July 20, 2020 9:52 AM

Good experience.

July 20, 2020 9:52 AM

I have been with Dr. Will for 40 years - I followed her to advocate.

July 18, 2020 8:47 AM

She always tries to accommodate in terms of scheduling when she can and she is an excellent listener.

July 18, 2020 7:23 AM

She is very nice. but I have been 5 times over the years for recurrence of acute back pain and only just now was offered PT and an Ortho referral. just starting that now, but have been living with intermittent excruciating pain, that is now to the point of ruining my life.

July 16, 2020 9:39 AM

Very professional staff!

July 15, 2020 1:04 PM

The woman who checked me in was great. The woman taking calls was rude & kept putting ladies on hold & then...about them, so everyone could hear. Very unprofessional.

July 13, 2020 2:01 PM

my experience was very good considering going through this covid pandemic

July 11, 2020 9:58 PM

Very Good

July 8, 2020 7:34 AM

Dr. Will and her nurse are wonderful people! professional, yet very personable.

June 29, 2020 2:44 PM

Dr. Will is the best. I have highly recommended her to a number of people.

June 29, 2020 2:44 PM

The phone system is horrible. You can't talk to anyone without going through the switchboard, waits are terrible even if you only have a quick question. There has got to be a better way to get through to the doctor's office instead of central clearing. If I didn't like Dr. Will as my primary doctor, I would change health care providers because of the bad service.

June 23, 2020 10:12 AM

Good experience.

June 22, 2020 7:55 PM

excellent doctor. she treats me with respect and partnership.

June 18, 2020 11:10 AM

Dr. Will is excellent doctor. She cares about her patients. Also front desk team is wonderful. During the pandemic everyone at the office was taking all precautions for safety of all patients.

June 18, 2020 11:10 AM

One thing is the call center for Advocate are making lot of mistakes when they are taking messages they do not have the knowledge of good service. Putting wrong information on messages. It would be better to go back of calling the office directly!!

June 13, 2020 8:00 AM

Dr will has been my Healthcare provider for years and I would recommend her to anyone. She is very thorough and cares about her patients.

May 30, 2020 10:49 AM

This was a phone visit; Dr. Will spent a lot of time with me. She's a good doctor.

May 27, 2020 2:19 PM

Always a good experience!

May 25, 2020 7:11 PM

Good

May 5, 2020 2:31 PM

I've been going to Dr. Will for quite a few years. I feel that she is a good diagnostician. She cut my blood pressure amount that I was taking in half because I was dizzy everyday.

May 5, 2020 12:25 PM

We met via Zoom. And it worked very well. I'm thankful that Dr. Karen Will is my primary physician.

May 4, 2020 1:29 PM

Dr. Will is a provider who gives me comprehensive care!

April 27, 2020 2:50 PM

Doctor Will is a great doctor. She was the only doctor who listened and took my issues seriously, ordered tests accordingly and discussed with me the best plan of attack. I feel very comfortable with her and she knows my health history. We need more doctors like her!!

April 27, 2020 2:42 PM

As always, Dr. Will is knowledgeable, thorough and compassionate and inspires confidence.

March 25, 2020 10:24 AM

I needed an urgent appointment and X-rays due to a fall. They scheduled me right away, ordered X-rays at Hitech (in the same building), and referred me to Mid America Orthopaedics for treatment of my patellar fracture that same afternoon. I received prompt, compassionate and excellent care throughout.

March 24, 2020 10:19 PM

Dr. Karen Will is always very attentive to my health issues and questions. she shows a genuine concern about her patients.

March 14, 2020 4:01 PM

good visit, got all answers i wanted

March 13, 2020 12:00 AM

I like this MD a lot she's very good.

March 13, 2020 12:00 AM

What I do not like is having someone else in the room taking notes. This is very uncomfortable for me. Its hard to talk to your dr. at times and this makes it worse. I would rather her have a tape recorder.

March 2, 2020 1:26 PM

she is good. very helpful

February 25, 2020 9:06 AM

Dr. Will and her staff are superb X her MA is compassionate and understanding

February 24, 2020 4:21 PM

It is always a good experience to see Dr.Will. I had a check up and needed blood tests, EKG and a mammogram.

February 24, 2020 4:21 PM

Excellent

February 17, 2020 6:36 AM

Dr. Karen Will is a great doctor. I've been going to her for at least 30 years.

February 17, 2020 6:36 AM

She doesn't hurry takes the time you need.

February 10, 2020 3:42 PM

Seeing Dr. Will and the reception and nursing staff in the Women's Health Center is always a positive experience. The care they provide is outstanding. I wish I could say the same for Advocate's call center and billing department.

February 4, 2020 6:22 AM

I've been seeing dr will over 20 years I love her

February 4, 2020 6:22 AM

January 25, 2020 9:23 AM

I think this dr is the best I've seen in years

January 21, 2020 7:54 AM

Dr. Will is always thorough and thoughtful. this time though, I was extra impressed by the staff. The nurses and desk staff were very friendly. the nurse who gave me my pneumonia shot, was very good. all around, it as a good experience.

January 20, 2020 5:22 PM

I can't say enough good things about Dr. Karen Will. She is simply the best !!

January 20, 2020 5:22 PM

always a great experience with Dr Will.

January 20, 2020 7:06 AM

I always feel comfortable with this provider & the nurses & staff. Been going there for years.

January 18, 2020 1:28 PM

I like Dr. Will a lot. She is always attentive, patient and easy to communicate with. I also like and appreciate the staff in her office.

January 18, 2020 1:28 PM

What I have a problem with is the central call center. When I call my doctor's office, I don't want to speak to someone in another office. I don't want to have to repeat myself to three different people who are giving me the third degree, etc. before I actually get an appointment. It is extremely frustrating and a waste of time!

January 14, 2020 2:48 PM

Provider anticipates and addresses my health care needs.

January 14, 2020 8:40 AM

I like and trust Dr. Will.

January 14, 2020 8:40 AM

I LOVE the nurse who checks me in and takes my vitals - so nice and friendly.

January 13, 2020 5:09 PM

I have been with my doctor for over 20 years and she is great.

January 13, 2020 2:12 PM

always very good

January 11, 2020 6:35 AM

I am very pleased with the care I receive from Dr. Will and her staff.

January 7, 2020 2:25 AM

I so appreciate the availability of my primary care physician, Karen Will and her interest in my health care. she is professional yet friendly and easy to talk to and honest. if needed she has referred me to specialist and is prompt to follow up for results and findings of other providers. her staff also is helpful and accommodating. they are never rude or condescending. the entire staff is committed to make what can be an unpleasant experience comfortable and easy.

December 21, 2019 12:59 PM

Dr. Will is always attentive to my needs. She is a very caring doctor.

December 15, 2019 8:19 PM

She took the time to discuss my test results, what they meant for my health, and the next steps to take.

December 13, 2019 6:58 AM

I love Dr. Karen Will. ALWAYS compassionate & caring. Actively listens to every word and FOLLOWS THROUGH; a key component to a great dr.!

December 13, 2019 6:58 AM

I do believe that the call center has greatly increased in patient satisfaction. There was a time in the past (not too long ago) they were terrible - So thank you for making those changes. There is still room for growth, however. Having to leave messages and praying that the office staff returns your call needs to improve. I still feel that calls, questions, requests are still not being handled appropriately. The dr. gets a 10. The office gets a 10. The return calls/get a 2.

December 12, 2019 2:07 PM

I saw Dr. Will for a routine physical exam. I am happy to have her as my primary care physician.

December 9, 2019 9:13 PM

Dr. Will is a great doctor

December 9, 2019 9:13 PM

I hate the phone service you use. it is so inconvenient and takes so long to get an answer or get to the person you want to talk to. I will leave the advocate group when Dr. Will retires if you can't get a better phone system.

December 9, 2019 6:11 PM

Dr. Will is a very good MD. and her staff really work well with her> All my concerns were addressed.

December 9, 2019 5:17 PM

I resent having an appointment and having to wait. It is an appointment. I took the time to arrive promptly so I would like the same curtesy in return. I am sure someone is driving the doctors to book and overbook, but since I am paying for their services, I would like my time valued.

December 3, 2019 8:51 AM

I have been a patient of Dr. Will for many years. In all that time I have talked to her 2 times on the phone - she relays everything thru her nurses which is very upsetting.

December 1, 2019 9:53 AM

she is kind and thorough.

December 1, 2019 9:53 AM

the staff are patient and act like real people.

November 27, 2019 5:40 AM

She is very good - I just have too many specialists. Heart, pulmonary, ear, eye surgeon only see my internist once a year - Immediate care takes care of any other problems.

November 27, 2019 5:40 AM

Very good - I like her.

November 26, 2019 7:39 AM

Always have a positive experience with Dr. K. Will.
