July 28, 2020 8:35 AM

Doctor Chemollo is awesome! very polite and helpful. very knowledgeable too. hate going to the Doctor, but he makes it stress free

July 27, 2020 8:17 PM

As always, Dr. Chemello was outgoing yet professional. He always takes time for my questions and does his best to answer them. I can tell that he is pleased when we work together to help improve my health.

July 27, 2020 8:17 PM

Dr. Chemello reviewed my lab tests with me. He was happy to see some improvement, but we also discussed the one test where results could have been better and how to work to change them.

July 27, 2020 2:06 PM

Dr. Chemello is a great doctor, I feel really comfortable with him.

July 27, 2020 2:06 PM

All good.

July 27, 2020 1:45 PM

Great

July 27, 2020 6:51 AM

I have been Dr. Chemello's patient for 25 years. As usual, it was a very good visit. We're partners in my health care.

July 27, 2020 6:51 AM

All experiences with Dr. Chemello are good.

July 20, 2020 3:32 PM

Dr. Chemello is an excellent doctor. He has been my primary doctor for over 25 years. He is kind, thorough, and patient.

July 19, 2020 10:25 AM

I had an excellent experience during my appointment.

July 16, 2020 8:57 AM

Talking with Dr. Chemello was a pleasant experience.

July 15, 2020 8:33 PM

in general the advocate call center and triage nurse are terrible. the triage nurse ewanted me to do a phone call for my injured ankle. then she suggested an urgent care. they suggest an urgent care all the time because they never can get me in to see my provider. so then if I don't see my provider often enough I may not be considered his patient anymore and he is not taking new patients. I really like Dr. Chemello. it is the advocate system I HATE. I use to know the staff and the office and they new me. but not anymore.

July 15, 2020 1:57 PM

The only reason I use Advocate Medical Group is Paul Chemello. Should he leave, I would also leave.

July 15, 2020 1:57 PM

It was interesting that you asked questions about phoning your office. It is a waste of time to try and if you were serious about service, you would provide direct phone access to the local office.

July 13, 2020 8:14 PM

Always a good experience

July 13, 2020 8:14 PM

Always good

July 13, 2020 4:55 PM

Dr Chemello has been my health care provider since I could remember. There is a reason why I only see him and that is he's the best and most professional Doctor I know of.

July 13, 2020 4:55 PM

There are only good experiences with Dr. Chemello. Every time I visit for a appointment I feel better about myself and understand what I need to do to stay healthy.

July 6, 2020 9:22 PM

great information provided. Dr Chemello listens and then discusses the answer with me. He makes sure I understand what we talk about.

July 4, 2020 7:42 AM

my experience was excellent. Dr. Chemello always knows what is best for my overall health.

July 2, 2020 2:51 PM

June 30, 2020 6:51 AM

The whole healthcare team at Advocate operated efficiently during a difficult time at both the site for blood draw and Dr Chemello's office.

June 29, 2020 6:37 PM

excellent

June 29, 2020 4:42 PM

very attentive as always; asked questions

June 29, 2020 1:35 PM

Dr. Chemello is a great physician but sometimes I think his face is in the computer too much and is not listening directly to me.

June 24, 2020 1:08 PM

Dr. is great when calling in to see him or need to ask a question VERY BAD. Easier to see the pope!

June 23, 2020 1:47 AM

Dr Chemello has always given me sufficient time to discuss my health concerns.

June 23, 2020 1:47 AM

Dr Chemello is a dedicated physician and I am well pleased to have him as my doctor,

It was very good to see him. He is probably the best doctor I've ever had.

June 19, 2020 9:11 AM

He is caring, thoughtful, and compassionate.

June 17, 2020 11:09 AM

I do not like the Advocate telephone protocol. I used to be able to call my doctor directly. I could call his office and talk to staff. Now I have a Advocate "third party" who seems to have the power to prevent my connecting to the person of my choice.

June 17, 2020 8:45 AM

Best Doctor ever!!!!!

June 16, 2020 6:58 PM

Dr. Chemello has been my MD for 23 years. I'm hoping he could be my future child's MD as well. Dr. Paul has always been the best.

June 16, 2020 6:58 PM

Dr. Paul and his nurses/techs are always the best. registration not the case during this stay. they were rude and very short!

June 15, 2020 12:00 PM

May 11, 2020 11:49 PM

it's hard to get an appointment for Dr Chemello, I would really want to see him instead of his partners. I was so glad that I was able to see him on my virtual chance up.

May 11, 2020 11:49 PM

Dr Chemelllo was very thorough. he made sure I am 100% healthy before going to work. he went out of his way by asking me that he would like to see me again in, will do another repeat virtual the next few days to see for himself that I'm absolutely okay to go back to work..

Dr. Chemello is a caring dr. who seems invested in my health care as much as I am. He is very excited when my weight goes down and very supportive when blood work comes back with good numbers.

April 2, 2020 4:59 AM

He is awesome. Explains everything well and goes over options if I'm not all in on a first option.

March 23, 2020 4:40 PM

Dr Chemello is the only reason I go to Advocate he's a terrific doctor

March 23, 2020 4:40 PM

when calling in your people are the most untrained people I've ever encountered they want to talk they don't wanna listen you should spend more time on training personnel especially when it comes to the medications that people take sometimes They seem like it's more important for them to schedule a visit then answer the questions you're calling about I myself and getting sick and tired of filling out your surveys so if possible take me off this list because I'm not filling out any more In fact if you wanna call me I'll explain more in detail

March 23, 2020 2:48 PM

best dr ever! very caring and knowledgeable!

March 23, 2020 2:48 PM

excellent doctor!

March 21, 2020 8:05 PM

I always have a pleasant and thorough visit with this provider.

March 21, 2020 8:05 PM

The Medical Assistant was not very welcoming or pleasant. I felt as if I was interrupting her lunch. She didn't look at me or smile.

March 21, 2020 9:12 AM
