August 23, 2018 7:00 PM

X at the receptionist desk was BY the rudest receptionist I have ever dealt with in s the years I've been seen myself at Dryer/Advocate and my Children's visits. This woman was degrading and snappy with unprofessional remarks regarding information i unknowingly wrote incorrectly on a form dr Dantzer requested to obtain crucial medical records from Lurie Children's. she was rude, loud and humiliated me in front of a waiting room of other patients. I did my best and had no clue the address listed to Lurie was incorrect as I was not sure which location was the correct location for records. I left there with my heart pounding and feeling so embarsssed!

August 4, 2018 7:00 PM

We love Dr Dantzer and X and everyone else that works with him. We have always had great experiences here.

July 28, 2018 7:00 PM

9 month check up very good as always

July 21, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr.Dantzer is a great physician. My children like going to see their silly doc and I appreciate his patience and kindness. He does well explaining things and never seems to hurry us out. Advocate needs more doctors like him.

Dr. Dantzer is always very patient and kind with my girls. He is very good about explaining what he is going to do before he does it, so they know what to expect.

April 9, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Dantzer and Nurse X make an amazing team! We were able to ask a question through MyChart and get an immediate response, which ended up being to come in for a visit, but we were able to get an appointment within the next few hours! The back office staff are always friendly, respectful, and helpful! The pediatric unit in Yorkville is AMAZING!

March 28, 2018 7:00 PM

We love Dr. Dantzer! He has the best bedside manner. He is always calm and understanding. He is reassuring especially for new parents. His nursing team is the best as well!

February 28, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr. Dantzer is always friendly and caring about my child's health. He has a way of talking to my son that helps to make the appointment easy.

February 28, 2018 6:00 PM
