ALWAYS GOD TO SEE HER, SHE IS GREAT

July 13, 2020 1:32 PM

I fully trust Dr Wistenberg and have for many years. The office, however, has been hard to reach, has not returned calls and lost my labs,so I have to go back and have them redrawn, which in. pandemic is not good.

July 8, 2020 11:32 AM

Dr. Wistenberg always takes her time to discuss all of my concerns. She listens when I talk and I find that important, especially when I'm not feeling well.

June 22, 2020 10:47 AM

My blood sugar was out of control earlier this year & Dr. Wistenberg called me everyday to see if it was under control yet. Eventually, she sent me to the hospital & I was diagnosed with pneumonia. But she stayed on top of the issue until it was resolved. I know she has numerous other patients, but she treated me as if I was the only one. She is a wonderful doctor who really cares.

June 10, 2020 8:07 AM

Dr. Wistenberg was such a nice doctor that even I called her from home and will ask some questions about my present condition (because I'm having slight fever) she called me back and explain everything to me. You can depend on her most of the time.

May 28, 2020 5:10 AM

This was an appointment on the computer (Zoom) and the telephone (hard of hearing). With my daughter listening, we spoke for more than an hour!

May 27, 2020 2:08 PM

Excellent doctor. Have been seeing Dr. Wistenberg for many years with confidence.

May 19, 2020 10:31 AM

March 9, 2020 10:43 PM

This provider always makes me fell I am being well cared for , listened to, that she is willing to spend whatever amount of time is necessary to seek a solution to my problems and to take responsibility for the decisions she makes.

March 9, 2020 4:02 PM

Provider took the time to make sure all my health issues were addressed which I appreciate. As a result the wait was an hour. The nurse didn't take my temperature and she mentioned my blood pressure was high and it would need to be taken again but it wasn't.

March 9, 2020 2:11 PM

Dr. Lexy Wistenberg is the best physician in all of Advocate! She remembers past visits, she remembers family members, she cares about life outside the doctor's office, she responds quickly and with compassion.

Dr. Wistenberg is an excellent listener, asks the right questions & always gives great advice. I think she is a great doctor & takes time to make sure her patients are getting great care.

February 18, 2020 8:13 AM

Overall, I bad first time experience visiting this office for a sick visit. 90 minutes total visit time, 70 of which were spent waiting.

February 18, 2020 8:13 AM

I arrived 15 minutes early waited 30 minutes in the waiting room before asking a receptionist about if the doctor was running late. Then a nurse brought me into a room to wait an additional 20 minutes, until the doctor arrived. So I saw the doctor 50 minutes past my original appointment time. I needed to take a swab for the flu and was told to wait in the waiting room for 15 minutes and that someone would let me know the results. After waiting 20 minutes, I asked the receptionist about my results and the medical assistant said "oh we already got your results awhile ago...it's negative." This office appears to not be managed well and the personnel are not coordinating these processes correctly for the patients. I was there for 90 minutes in total (50 minutes waiting to see doctor, 20 minutes waiting for swab test results). I thought this would have saved time compared to going to a minute clinic, but now I'm not sure. I have been to other Advocate medical offices and did not experience this, so it is definitely this location.

February 15, 2020 6:07 AM

Provider was wonderful, insightful, took a lot of time to get up to speed w/my health history.

February 15, 2020 6:07 AM

Receptionists were rude.

February 13, 2020 11:43 AM

Dr Wistenberg is a terrific Dr to have! She's caring, concerned and eager to help.

February 13, 2020 11:43 AM

hate that we have to call a central number to reach Dr. or make appts. was so much easier just calling Drs office directly. Especially to ask to speak to Dr.

February 11, 2020 11:26 AM

very happy with the time she takes to check on my well being. all drs should be like her care and concern.

February 10, 2020 8:30 PM

Dr. Wistenberg is wonderful. She is caring and kind. I would recommend her to anyone. She was extremely helpful.

February 10, 2020 8:30 PM

The nurse that took me in that day, on the other hand was grumpy and not very helpful.

February 8, 2020 7:04 AM

Dr. Wistenberg is the best provider I've had in an extremely long time. She is professional, thorough, kind and just exceptional overall!!!

February 8, 2020 7:04 AM

January 20, 2020 3:05 PM

The nurse was also wonderful. She followed me outside into the frigid weather to confirm my medications, and gave me a follow up phone call.

January 8, 2020 6:22 AM

Dr. is very professional doctor. Also willing to explain condition to pt.

December 30, 2019 1:32 PM

Very satisfied with my PCP visit with Dr. Wistenberg. The exam was very thorough and Dr. took her time in going thru things.

December 30, 2019 1:32 PM

My only comment is that blood work was taken on 12/24. Most results were in on 12/25-26 on the portal. Today is the 30th and someone from the office should verbally follow-up with the results, even if results were fine.

December 29, 2019 3:26 PM

Great visit with Dr. Wistenberg.

December 27, 2019 11:00 PM

Dr. Wistenberg is an excellent physician. All the providers need more time with their patients - The MD's, PA's and NP's.

December 27, 2019 11:00 PM

This is a great group of medical professionals. Give them more time to spend with their patients instead of timing their visits so closely...

December 27, 2019 11:00 PM

Dr. Lexy Wistenberg - great doctor! I love her!!

December 23, 2019 3:02 PM

Check in and out okay. There were drinks and snacks in the registration area , which probably should have been out of patient view. Registration staff were very nice .

December 21, 2019 9:41 PM

Always great. She listens and explains everything so it is easy to understand.

December 21, 2019 6:38 PM
