Dr. Pradhan is an excellent dr. I'm glad I found her as my health care provider.

July 29, 2020 11:29 AM

She is my family doctor and I also have a cardologist at Advocate. Both damn good doctors.

July 29, 2020 11:29 AM

I am stiil braething and walking and 89 years old so they must know something about what it takes to be a good doctor

July 28, 2020 8:55 AM

the appointment was a regular yearly exam I really like the dr.

July 28, 2020 8:55 AM

the way they always mess up the referral is very frustrating. almost every time I need a referral something is wrong with it or it's not done, or it's not the complete referral. more calls back n forth to get them done right.

July 27, 2020 1:38 PM

Dr. Pradhan always greets me with a smile, asks how I'm doing and if anything relative to my health needs to be discussed. She genuinely cares about my mental and social well-being .

July 27, 2020 1:38 PM

Dr. Pradhan's nurse always exercises excellence in customer service as well... she greets me with a smile asked me if I'm doing OK and whether or not there's anything going on in my life concerning my health that needs to be discussed.

July 27, 2020 6:06 AM

The provider was very professional, I felt very relaxed with the information. She provider about my care. She was thorough and I felt she was extremely knowledgeable about my situation.

July 27, 2020 6:06 AM

A very good experience.

July 21, 2020 2:13 PM

She was very attentive. This was an introduction visit for a new internal medicine provider, so many of the questions did not pertain. Overall, it was a good visit, but i would have preferred she would schedule a follow up appointment. Right now, I would have to schedule and things are in limbo.

July 21, 2020 9:39 AM

good

July 15, 2020 1:15 PM

Dr. Pradhan is very polite & very professional. She is a very good doctor. I would recommend her to my relatives & friends.

July 13, 2020 5:42 PM

that doctor was fantastic if it was a number higher than 10 I would give it to her!!!

July 13, 2020 5:42 PM

staff did precheck in outside very little waiting in and out

July 9, 2020 1:55 PM

July 2, 2020 12:00 AM

Good experience.

July 2, 2020 12:00 AM

Dr. Pradhan is an excellent doctor.

June 30, 2020 8:54 AM

The referral system in this office needs to be improved. I very often find that dept. to be slow and not efficient in faxing the specialist their copy and always having to request a copy to be mailed to me numerous times. VERY Frustrating!

June 30, 2020 6:17 AM

Dr. Melissa Pradhan is our Primary Care Physician and the person to go to for medical advice. My husband and I appreciate her efforts and Care for out health. Thank you Dr. Pradhan.

June 30, 2020 6:17 AM

Always informative and all issues if any get resolved expeditiously.

June 20, 2020 2:19 PM

Always a thorough and courteous visit. Dr.Pradhan is the ultimate professional

June 20, 2020 2:19 PM

always a good experience, never ever bad

June 17, 2020 10:48 AM

Melissa Pradhan has been great for me & doesn't seem in a hurry to go to the next patient.

June 17, 2020 10:48 AM

All good.

June 16, 2020 8:21 AM

Dr. Pradhan has been my doctor for many years and I am grateful to her for managing my healthcare needs professional & effectively.

June 16, 2020 8:21 AM

I was very pleased to get an appointment at Advocate and to rate how carefully everyone observed safety measures for the virus prevention.

June 9, 2020 9:26 AM

Dr. Pradhan maintains a highly professional medical practice, and her staff follow her protocol.

June 9, 2020 9:26 AM

Dr. Pradhan is a highly intellectual and caring physician, who possesses the patience and understanding of the patient's needs.

June 3, 2020 6:44 PM

I love the Dr. I want to switch over to her service. Her nurse was excellent as well. They make a great team!

June 1, 2020 2:45 PM

VERY HAPPY WITH DR PRAHDAN .

May 26, 2020 8:54 AM

Doctor Melissa Prahdan was at top of my health problem during my last visit and took every step to help me as usual. She has my total trust she earned during the years I was under her care. Result of the last consultation was eliminating my legs pain problem. Its helped a lot. She advised me to the fact that this is work in progress. Great and to a point troubleshooting as usual on her part.. Very good results.

May 26, 2020 8:54 AM

Doctor Melissa Prahdan is the best health care provider I ever encounter and she is the reason I go to Advocate for years. I think her advice and care saved my health many times. I recommend her to my wife and she is her doctor also. Very professional and caring Lady. Happy to be guided by her.

May 23, 2020 2:16 PM

Excellent.

May 19, 2020 11:01 AM

It went very well. It was a video visit which was kind of awkward since I had never participated in one before. But, my questions and concerns were answered and taken care of. My symptom was handled right away and has since resolved itself.

May 18, 2020 10:01 PM

it was a Virtual Visit. My provider was very attentive for my concerns.

May 18, 2020 10:01 PM

it was a good experience.

May 18, 2020 8:57 PM

So far, all is very good.

Dr. Melissa Pradhan is always on point with my health concerns. I am pleased with every aspect of my health care, my doctor is awesome.

I have only good experiences to report. Even when getting my blood drawn during COVID-19 all care and caution was used, masks, temperature check and doctor's visit by telephone, awesome.

April 16, 2020 9:23 AM

Always have had very good service.

April 16, 2020 9:23 AM

Very good experience.

March 28, 2020 11:03 AM

Dr. Pradan is kind and caring. I always feel comfortable around her!

March 28, 2020 8:51 AM

Very pleased with Dr. Pradhan's care and her personable approach. I am very comfortable with asking questions and her responses.

March 28, 2020 8:51 AM

Excellent experience.

March 20, 2020 6:20 AM

It had been a year since my last appointment - that's normal for me. I enjoy talking with Dr. Pradhan. If I have a question, she discusses openly with me. We look over lab results & set any goals so I can stay healthy. I take no prescription drugs. I'm grateful to have Dr. Pradhan as my PCP.

March 18, 2020 1:02 PM

Dr. Pradhan was, and always is, thoughtful, careful, smart and has a great sense of humor. I'm always able to be myself when I see her. I feel fortunate to have found Dr. Pradhan for my PCP.

March 16, 2020 11:01 PM

This doctor is great and has a nice bedside manner. She is thorough in answering questions.

March 16, 2020 11:01 PM

I waited 30 minutes in the waiting room and 1 hour for the doctor and this was for an 11:40am appointment. You could tell the doctor was running from appointment to appointment - you schedule them too close together - let the doctors catch their breath and NOT keep the patients waiting.

March 16, 2020 4:28 PM

Due to my insurance I had to change PCP's. I liked Dr Pradhan very much and will continue to see her.

March 16, 2020 3:45 PM

Per usual Dr Pradhan answered all my questions and gave me her undivided attention. She never rushes my exam and is very caring.

March 16, 2020 3:32 PM

Very good

March 16, 2020 3:32 PM

Good

March 16, 2020 3:19 PM

dr pradhan is wonderful and knows my health history as well as yook care of my parents and has a solid knowledge of my health history as well as my mental well being..

March 16, 2020 3:19 PM

always satisfied with dr pradhan

March 13, 2020 2:22 PM

She is efficient and detailed & nice to talk to.

March 13, 2020 2:15 PM

She is very invested in keeping me healthy.

March 12, 2020 8:45 PM

The call centers for scheduling an appointment might help Advocate's cost but they are in efficient to patients. The redundancy in giving information when transferred makes calls twice as long and do not take the patient's time into account

March 11, 2020 5:46 PM

Fabulous!

March 6, 2020 11:00 PM

My primary doctor is fine, BUT her staff does not get back to me in regards to tests and questions I have for Dr. Pradhan. They never leave their names to return calls, and I feel they do the a great DISSERVICE.

March 6, 2020 11:00 PM

I have been seeing Dr. Pradhan for 5 years now, and I think she is just wonderful with good knowledge and very kind!

February 25, 2020 4:37 PM

one of Dr. Pradahn's nurses printed off my visit summary and instead of having me wait, she brought the report to me in another part of the facility.Thats customer service!

February 25, 2020 3:00 PM

Dr. Pradhan knows my medical history and is very helpful about required testing and medications. she is also familiar with my cardiologist. she keeps me informed about test results and any changes that are needed to improve my health.

February 25, 2020 3:00 PM

I can highly recommend Dr. Pradhan for professional yet kind manner and attention to detail.

February 25, 2020 10:10 AM

not helpful

February 24, 2020 9:10 PM

Good but she was late.

February 24, 2020 5:27 PM

I have wanted to leave Advocate for years. The only reason I stay with this office is Dr. Melissa Pradhan and I will follow her no matter where she goes. I do not utilize any specialists through Advocate and certainly avoid Advocate Christ Hospital at all costs. Both my parents, my husband and myself have had major problems/complaints and lack of proper care with Advocate Christ.

February 24, 2020 5:27 PM

This Advocate office and staff were ideal years ago. Since the Orland Park Office was closed and combined with this office, the overcrowding is terrible. Waiting for lab services is terrible and often no seats are available. The staff is overworked and/or lacking in adequate education, something that was not the case years ago. Turnover in staff is unbelievable.

February 24, 2020 10:01 AM

The Doctor was very nice and easy to talk to. Seemed to care.

February 24, 2020 8:55 AM

I love Dr Pradhan. She is the sweetest person. Very humble, soft spoken and careening doctor.

February 13, 2020 12:10 PM

Dr. Pradhan was courteous, respectful, friendly and very thorough.

February 13, 2020 12:10 PM

It was a good experience overall.

February 12, 2020 5:59 PM

My provider, Melissa Pradhan, is excellent.

February 12, 2020 5:59 PM

However, for the last two years I have been thinking of changing providers due to the inexperienced, unhelpful, not following through, uncaring employees I have dealt with in the Advocate system. Whether it is in the office or through your call center, they all seem like it is an effort for them to do their job. If I have a question for a particular location, why do I have to go through your call center, who can't answer my question, nor can they transfer me to that location. The lab in Orland is terrible, with an hour wait during the morning hours, even if you have an appointment. Not just once, this is every year. You may want to advise your employees that without customers, they may not have a job. But a lot seem like they could care less!

February 11, 2020 2:50 PM

A good visit. Answered all my questions. Ordered routine tests/blood work.

February 11, 2020 2:50 PM

Good experience.

February 10, 2020 3:35 PM

Even though I was not seen right away, I was an add on, that does not concern me. Dr. Pradhan spends ample time with me and I know she does the same for all her patients. As it should be.

February 10, 2020 3:35 PM

She always listens to my concerns.

February 4, 2020 8:41 PM

That was my first visit with my provider. So far very confident in her medical profession.

February 1, 2020 8:17 AM

Dr. Pradhan displayed an excellent bedside manner. She asked specific questions and listened intently to my responses and showed a genuine concern for my health and wellness. More importantly she did it all with a smile. I truly enjoyed my first visit with Dr. predominant and look forward to her sharing and showing her health education and expertise in the future!

February 1, 2020 8:17 AM

I received " excellence in customer service" from everyone I came in contact with during my initial visit with Advocate Medical Group!

February 1, 2020 7:57 AM

Excellent

February 1, 2020 7:57 AM

My provider is good and knowleable

January 28, 2020 8:43 AM

Dr. Prahdan is great but I have huge issues with this office in general. she's fine, everyone else is terrible.

January 28, 2020 8:43 AM

Fix the whole "leaving a message and calling back." nobody responds fast enough. I feel like I'm cattle that is being herded.

January 27, 2020 2:04 PM

my wife and I had to choose a new doctor when Dr. X left. We chose Dr Pradhan and have been very pleased with her. She shows concern and is very thorough an she is very compassionate. She solved a problem that I had 8 years. She referred me to Dr. X who did a venogram curing a problem with my right leg having naturopath and looking purple and haveing neuropathy. I hope she stays a Advocate as long as I'm alive.

January 27, 2020 2:04 PM

my wife and I are very pleased with Dr. Pradhan.
