I think the video visit went smoothly.

May 7, 2020 8:10 PM

Dr. Nina and her staff are always caring and helpful.

April 7, 2020 10:07 AM

She spent an amazing amount of time familiarizing herself with my medical records and going over them with me. The time she spent with me was very helpful in my decision making regarding my ongoing medical needs.

March 20, 2020 6:21 AM

Best neurologist who serves my condition.

March 9, 2020 10:42 AM

Dr. Paleologos has been treating me for the past 7 years. She is always very through & shows compassion for me & this alone makes me feel good. Would not even consider another doctor. Thank you Dr. P

January 27, 2020 11:18 PM

Overall poor.

January 27, 2020 11:18 PM

Long wait time, poor "bedside manner", unprepared staff - mostly the doctor.

January 16, 2020 1:37 PM

I see Dr. Paleologos every 6-9 months in order to monitor my condition. Each appointment assures me that all is well.

December 24, 2019 9:57 AM

always professional, looks and listens to me and if I bring someone makes it clear what will be discussed and approval for sharing

December 24, 2019 9:57 AM

Advocate is fortunate to have this Doctor on staff

December 23, 2019 9:00 PM


December 21, 2019 12:53 PM

It excellent every visit.

December 21, 2019 12:53 PM

Dr. Paleologos is the best, wonderful to discuss treatment with her! She is sensational physician -

November 4, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Paleologos has been my dr. for 15 years (after spinal surgery); I have followed her each time she changed locations/offices because she is the most compassionate, smartest woman I ever met in the medical field. I'm very fortunate to have her for my dr.

October 28, 2019 7:00 PM

Informative. Explained everything until I understood what I had to do.She feels like a friend and I look forward to my appointments.Hope I did this all right!

October 15, 2019 7:00 PM

Excellent care by Dr. Nina, she is a wonderful lady and a very fine doctor I am a very lucky person.

September 30, 2019 7:00 PM

The provider was very helpful and very kind, easy to explain my situation to me.

September 29, 2019 7:00 PM

I see Dr. Nina every three months due to my tumor. She is the best dr. I ever had.

September 15, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. P is an incredible physician!!!

August 13, 2019 7:00 PM

Awesome, great care and very personal.

August 12, 2019 7:00 PM

100% satisfied with Dr Nina - a amazing person and Doctor always very thorough and considerate

August 11, 2019 7:00 PM

Wonderful appointment, I arrived early and was able to see Dr P. before our scheduled time.

August 6, 2019 7:00 PM

I was disappointed by the whole experience with Dr. Paleologos (except for the actual visit with her). I was shocked that she told me to find another doctor because my insurance was not good. I can't believe a doctor who is supposed to save lives would discount my life because of my fraudulent insurance.

July 4, 2019 7:00 PM

Very helpful.

June 16, 2019 7:00 PM

it took many phone calls to get my appointment and MRI scheduled. spoke with a manager there and also my doctor. it appears that my phone calls are not documented in my records. I went back through my phone records and sent the list to the do the doctor. very unprofessional to leave messages and not get calls returned. if I didn't like my doctor so much. I would be going elsewhere.

June 10, 2019 7:00 PM

Excellent relationship with my physician- Dr. Nina Paleologos

June 9, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr Paleologos is one of the best Drs I have EVER had. I can't say it any better. .

June 2, 2019 7:00 PM

I have seen Dr. Paleologos for 17 years.

May 23, 2019 7:00 PM

I always feel I get the best care from Dr. Paleologos and her staff. Very caring from the registration process to Dr. Paleologos appointment. They are the best.

April 28, 2019 7:00 PM

I'm thankful for the excellent care I receive from Dr. Paleologos.

April 14, 2019 7:00 PM

Excellent specialist, a caring person with passion.

April 13, 2019 7:00 PM

since Dr Paleologos has been promoted she is not the same as she was before. She doesn't have time to order test correctly. I went to a MRI at auxiliary site. The site did not have the order. The site said that it was due to a new computer system. So that meant I had to go on Friday and complete all the test in one day.

February 18, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr Nina is amazing. I can't lose her! she has not only knowledge, but makes everyone feel special.

February 12, 2019 6:00 PM

She was very informative, knowledgeable, and spent a lot of time with me.

February 11, 2019 6:00 PM

I saw Dr. Paleoplogos at Rush, before she moved to Advocate. So, I followed her to Advocate. But Advocate is much more convenient to me. The receptionists in the Radiology Department are very nasty, but other than them, everyone that I dealt with at Lutheran General was very nice and helpful...

February 7, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Paleologos is a great doctor. She explains everything, always asks if I understand and if I have questions. So happy she is with Advocate.

February 4, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Paleologos is outstanding in caring for outlook & my actions with my astrocytoma

January 30, 2019 6:00 PM

I will continue to see Dr. Paleologos for as long as I need to.

January 25, 2019 6:00 PM

My doctor is very knowledgeable, friendly and keeps me come. I like her. She reminds me of things I need to do.

January 24, 2019 6:00 PM

This provider was exceptional! She spent over an hour with me and my family. She took time needed to explain all of our questions and options available. Remarkable! Far exceeded our expectations!

January 13, 2019 6:00 PM

Great provider who is extremely knowledgable medically but has a terrible bedside manner. She needs to work hard on responding DIRECTLY to patient calls instead of always having a nurse respond.

December 17, 2018 6:00 PM

Always excellent care!

November 26, 2018 6:00 PM

One of the best dr.'s I have ever had in my life.

November 19, 2018 6:00 PM

She is the best in Chicago.

November 17, 2018 6:00 PM

she is always upfront and honest. I can't ask for any more! I love her.

October 22, 2018 7:00 PM

provider is the best. her office clerks are not.

October 9, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Paleologis is awesome. I'm so blessed that she has joined Good Sam. she is so compassionate and positive. I always receive a letter in the mail summarizing our visit whic I appreciate. since I had brain surgery I will be with her for many many years to come. It's great to have someone like her to review my MRI and let me know how things are going.

October 5, 2018 7:00 PM

Doctor was rushed and kept checking her watch. That says my care is not really important to her. When I am being seen by the doctor I expect her full attention and if they are distracted they should let me know as I understand they are people too. However, don't make me feel rushed when I had to make significant effort to be there.

August 20, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Paleologos is doing a great job trying to keep my 'brain cancer' under control

July 17, 2018 7:00 PM

scheduling appointments is very difficult.

July 1, 2018 7:00 PM

awesome visit. I was very comfortable with her. she made sure I understood everything before I left.

June 18, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Nina is so knowledgeable about my brain tumor. She is honest and upfront. She is also compassionate.

June 15, 2018 7:00 PM

Always outstanding! She provides Outstanding! She provides professional care & takes the time to understand & relate to me as the patient. Her "bedside manner" is second to none and we are confident we are receiving the best possible care for my issues.

June 1, 2018 7:00 PM

Fantastic provider, very informative visit. Friendly and caring provider. I am very pleased to be under provider's care.

May 30, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Paleologos is the best at what she does!

May 28, 2018 7:00 PM

Great Doctor (Dr. Paleologos), excellent staff.

May 8, 2018 7:00 PM

one of best doctors I have ever had
