April 18, 2018 7:00 PM

I am very thankful for Doctor Favia's compassion and professionalism. He personally talk to my gynecologist to make sure that I was taken care of and called us home right after the procedure. I'm happy that I have a doctor that sees me like a person not a number.

April 16, 2018 7:00 PM

I have moved from this town but would never switch doctors. Dr. Favia and Dr. X go above and beyond caring for their patients. They are the very best and an asset to this group. 5 stars!!!!!

April 16, 2018 7:00 PM

The office visits are always very pleasant.

April 15, 2018 7:00 PM

dr favia is excellent

April 13, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr Favia is very understanding of my personal needs. His nurses go above and beyond to help and are always so pleasant which makes my visit even more worthwhile. Having a full team that works great together really shows, I can tell as a patient they put a lot of work in patient satisfaction.

April 9, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr Fabia was great, & told me what Needed to hear not what I wanted to hear

April 8, 2018 7:00 PM

April 6, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Favis and staff were awesome. Was extremely thorough. Loved this! Recently switched after 14 yrs.

March 30, 2018 7:00 PM

All of my interactions with the Staff and Doctor are always very positive and I always leave feeling I have received the best care possible! This is by far the best group I have ever had outside of my children's pediatricians, and now that they are adults they are all here.

March 26, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Favia is always a pleasure to consult with and ask questions. He takes the time to listen and provide information and solutions for them.

Dr Favia always takes the time to explain the situation

March 23, 2018 7:00 PM

Good visit. Very prompt; I had to do 0 waiting (I didn't even get a chance to sit down in the waiting room before they called me back). Dr. Favia was courteous, attentive, and answered all my questions thoroughly. Everything flowed so quickly - vitals check, to seeing the Dr, to the blood draw work. It was each person one after the other. I can't say much else other than this was a good visit for my routine check-up

March 21, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Favia listened to my thoughts about my medical needs before his exam. Afterwards we discussed what he found and he provided three referrals to specialists as needed. Dr. Favia also wanted MRI and ulltra sound. Subsequently, Dr. Favia personally reviewed these test results with me over the phone and I am now scheduled to see a cardiologist,

March 19, 2018 7:00 PM

I saw Dr.Favia for a 6 month med check. My experience with him for this visit as with all my visits with him have been very good. He is very knowledgable, courteous, respectful and professional. I am lucky to have him as my primary physician.

best doctor I ever had. can't say enough about Dr Favia. he is awesome

March 18, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Philip Favia is my family doctor from years that has really helped me when I needed it .

March 16, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr Favia has been my family of 6 physician for over 15 years. He is a excellent physician as well as a caring friend. A better person you will not find.

March 12, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Favia and his nursing staff are fantastic. However the office staff at the Ryan Pkwy facility are unpersonable and at times rude. Telephone calls and prescription refills could take days or multiple calls to get returned or filled. That is most frustrating. It seems to have gotten worse since Advocate bought the location. When it was Alpine things were better pertaining to the office staff.

February 27, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr Favia is a great doctor and I would recommend him to friends & family.

February 26, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr. Favia is truly an amazing physician that treats patients with respect and includes the patient in decision making. He has great instinct, I trust him, and I sincerely appreciate his interpersonal skills.

February 25, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr Favia has been my doctor for 8 years. He is the best physician I have ever seen. He is a great listener and totally understands my health issues. He saved my life 8 years ago by ordering an ultrasound which was the first step in diagnosing my pancreatic cancer.

February 22, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr. Favia is very good in his manner, respectful and answers whatever concerns I have. I am VERY pleased with the service I receive.

February 18, 2018 6:00 PM

Front desk clerk very rude. . Made me feel like a criminal because I owed a balance.

February 12, 2018 6:00 PM

This was a first visit with Dr. Favia. He was very understanding of my health history and wanted to continue when all of the records were available.

February 11, 2018 6:00 PM

Great experience from the front desk, nurses and the Dr.

February 5, 2018 6:00 PM

I was very pleased with Dr.

February 3, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr. Favia is very thorough and goes through everything relative to my visit. He ensures that I have what I need to treat my condition, and suggests other alternatives available to me, without being pushy. This visit was foe a med check, labs and pneumonia shot.

February 2, 2018 6:00 PM

Very happy to find. good provider so close to home. Wait time was longer than expected but worth it because the doctor was very caring and took his time with me.

January 29, 2018 6:00 PM

Provider is excellent. Schedulers & reception are rude and condescending. It took more than four phone calls, multiple messages, and long wait (hold) times to make appt. Doctor is great, reception and schedulers are awful.

January 29, 2018 6:00 PM

Always get the best possible care from this provider

January 1, 2018 6:00 PM

My Medical visits with Dr. Favia have always been informative and thorough regarding any concerns that I may have about my health. I hope to be able to continue to see Dr. Favia for my regular medical visits as well as any other health related conditions I may need help with. I would definitely refer family and friends to this physician.

January 1, 2018 6:00 PM

Had to wait over 30 mins in waiting room then another 30 mins in exam room for doctor. Over an hour waiting for less than 5 mins with doctor. Doctor acted rushed and in a hurry.
