I chose Dr. Debre myself after reviewing several doctors on the internet and with Advocate Health. Presently I see a total of 9 doctors on a schedule of yearly, monthly, or quarterly : cardiologist, oncologist, nephrology, gastroenterology, urologist, vascular surgeon, general medicine, DDS, ophthalmology. I have a good sense and experience of what a good practitioner is and I consider Mike Debre one of my best caregivers.

Good.

December 27, 2019 5:34 PM

My visit was very pleasant. He asked if I had any concerns and recomended I take melatonin to help me with my sleep.

December 27, 2019 5:34 PM

My visits to this office are always very good. I am checked in right away and my wait is always relatively short.

December 24, 2019 10:11 AM

I have been with Dr.Debre for many years, just look at the records.

December 23, 2019 2:06 PM

he is a great doctor even though I have to drive 45 minutes to see him I'll always go there

December 23, 2019 1:40 PM

I really don't like the new screening process. I have a good relationship with Dr DeBre but can no longer speak to him by phone because of your new process. I have to describe my symptoms to a screener, then to a nurse, then to his NP who relays the info to Dr DeBre and calls me back with an answer. If I have any additional questions, the NP talks to the doctor and then calls me back with an answer. Not very efficient and not patient focused.

December 13, 2019 7:23 AM

My experience with Dr. Debre has been extremely satisfying. He is an excellent dr., and has helped me with multiple health issues including cancer over the last 15 yrs.
