Excellent doctor. I believe she really cares about her patients. however, sometimes when I visit I feel that she's perhaps overwhelmed. like most doctors she probably has too many patients. Also I feel that perhaps because I'm an HMO patient certain things are not offered to me. perhaps because of cost.

March 28, 2020 11:28 AM

overall like I said good doctor.

March 26, 2020 10:10 AM

Thorough, prepared, attentive, friendly, and very professional

Dr. O'Shea-Wilk is a very caring, sharing and concern doctor!

March 20, 2020 4:19 AM


March 16, 2020 6:29 PM

I am concerned that because one physician from this location has retired and not replaced, that my doctor will be overloaded and not able to devote the time to my appointments as I have been receiving. There are times I need to talk more with my doctor and if she is overwhelmed as may not be possible. Also, overly exhausted doctors do not provide the best service. I am very happy with Dr. O'Shea-Wilk and do not want to lose her.

March 16, 2020 5:07 PM

Dr O'Shea Wilks is an excellent doctor.

March 16, 2020 2:31 PM

January 21, 2020 2:36 PM

The doctor was very understanding, easy to talk to you.

January 20, 2020 2:16 PM

I really like the doctors and nurses. However it is nearly impossible to get a hold of someone via the phone. I had to wait for three days for test results because no one would ever called me back and was placed on hold for over 15 minutes two times. As I said I really love the doctor and that's why I stay but the office staff and the phone service is awful! Every time I try to call on the phone I swear I am leaving this practice

January 20, 2020 2:16 PM

see above. good doctor and nurses. front desk people rude unhelpful incompetent. phone system That places the patients on hold for over 15 minutes before actually talking to a person is unacceptable

January 20, 2020 1:59 PM

This provider is simply wonderful. She listened to my concerns and acted on them as if they were her own. I was a new patient so she has a lot to dx.

January 20, 2020 1:59 PM


January 20, 2020 7:06 AM

Due to preparation for major surgery and recent hypertension, I have had 4 appts. with this provider in 4 mos. Always superb.

Dr. O'Shea-Wilk has been my general physician fro at Dr. O'Shea Wilk has been my physician for over 15 years and I certainly appreciate her and her usual nurse, X. They both respond to my needs. My last visit was a follow-up visit after two visit to An Urgent Care facility, diagnosed as bronchitis and a sa all amount of pneumonia in my left lung. I wanted to have a visit with Dr. Wilk to inform her of my prior treatments and get her recommendations. I trust her advice, etc.

January 13, 2020 6:40 PM

Dr. K. O'Shea - Wilksis always compassionate, respectful, and listens to her patients needs, & concerns , I never fill rushed away

January 13, 2020 6:40 PM

January 2, 2020 1:59 AM

Dr O'Shea Wills is wonderful. she saw me when the Dr.I was assigned couldn't see me after coming from the emergency in October and when I finally had appt in Dec. called and canceled. Dr. O'Shea Wilks was wonderful in seeing me and took care of me when the other Dr. at South Holland advocated couldn't.

December 16, 2019 9:14 PM

My visit was great

December 13, 2019 11:00 PM

Exceptional team! When making appt. (for 11/26/19) (the switchboard phone rang appx. 20 mins on hold.) This is a marked improvement from 2010! (Phone rang over 90 mins.) Progress doctors, nurse, PCP, , O'Shea Wilk, office staff are truly professional!

she was very informative

August 15, 2019 7:00 PM

This was a first visit with this provider. I left my old provider. I had a positive experience meeting my new provider. I left their office feeling that I have made a good choice in picking this provider.

August 12, 2019 7:00 PM


August 11, 2019 7:00 PM

The doctor was pleasant and friendly, as always. She takes time to do routine check-ins. She asks how you're feeling overall. She already knew the reason for my visit, and the nurse had done the initial work-up. She asked if I had an ophthalmologist, but said not any longer, I'm now in an HMO. She said if the anitbiotic did not work, she would refer me to one.

August 7, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. O'Shea-Wilk has always been excellent! She is patient focused - truly a great doctor!

August 4, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr O'Shea is always very through, asking about any new condition or problem I may be experiencing. Makes sure I understand everything and really listens to my concerns.

July 30, 2019 7:00 PM

As a;ways, Dr. O'shea Wilk gave me her undivided attention a care.

July 29, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. O'Shea-Wilk and I discussed a problem I am having and she recommended actions I should take and said if it didn't help, call her and she would send me for specific testing. She know I don't like going for tests and tries to work with me around them when possible. I really appreciate that.
