great to have another knowledgeable doctor on the Advocate team. Get vaccines in office for Obgyn patients

October 24, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. was fine. Office staff since Advocate take over has been terrible. From calling to make appointment to check in process & check out process is poor. Myself & my 2 daughters go here & have same experience. Almost ready to switch providers due to reception/office staff. Have been there at least 2-3 times since take over and experience has not improved.
