It should be easier for doctor to look up last colonoscopy date (and for other procedures). The database seems to require scanning of patient notes rather than having this info noted in a convenient pop-up.

July 30, 2020 8:25 AM

Dr. King is the best!

July 13, 2020 5:28 PM

Dr King was fairly prepared for my visit. This was upon insistance by me prior to our meeting. He did not respond well nor deceive when I discused my disatifaction of Him and his staff dropping the ball last year. They failed to follow through on MRI orders that were not performed because the staff did not properly prepare orders. This cost me considerable time in months for Me to get this addressed from another Medical Insitution. I do not have confidence in this office as Advocate has it structured.

June 29, 2020 1:45 PM

Very easy to schedule the appointment.

June 29, 2020 1:45 PM

Dr. King is excellent. I am very happy he is my Doctor. He is a great asset for the Advocate Medical Group.

June 15, 2020 10:39 AM

Great team in this office.

June 10, 2020 8:08 AM

I was a patient of Dr. X due to circumstances, I now see Dr, King and I'm very happy w/the compassionate care I receive..

May 22, 2020 11:01 AM

I appreciate Dr. King as my primary doctor.

May 18, 2020 10:32 PM

I feel like he could have explained the tests he ordered better and their limits in identifying the actual problem I was complaining about. Turned out the tests could not actually test for the condition I believe I had. The end result was we did not really prove or disprove I had the issue. We looked for linked issues, but did not prove anything.

May 17, 2020 9:36 PM

It was a very good visit. A little different due to the fact that it was in the COVID-19 pandemic. But wearing a mask was ok. I was sent for a repeat chest xray which came out good.

May 17, 2020 9:36 PM

Very good visit with the doctor and with the xray department.

May 9, 2020 11:20 AM

Because of the COVID-19 virus this was a phone check-up. It went really well.

April 23, 2020 8:25 AM

Dr. King is very pleasant. He engaged in share decision making, he conducts thorough exam - and good listener.

April 23, 2020 8:25 AM

The staff and switch board personal are very pleasant and helpful.

April 20, 2020 9:28 AM

Very good.

April 20, 2020 9:28 AM

Reception seem somewhat inexperienced, lack listening capability, appointment time incorrect.

April 17, 2020 12:00 AM

Excellent physician.

April 4, 2020 12:04 PM

Dr. King answered all my questions and gave me the right prescription to end my cough.

April 4, 2020 12:04 PM

It took a while to get through (which I totally understand), but when he returned my call, Dr. King was very professional and caring about me. I am totally pleased with his response on my behalf.

April 4, 2020 9:52 AM

Doctor King was wonderful! I called him regarding a sinus infection and headache. He and the entire office system were very responsive. I have just finished my antibiotic and am feeling good. Many thanks to this excellent team of professionals.

April 3, 2020 12:00 AM

I hate the call in system - That you cannot talk directly to the doctor's office.

April 2, 2020 5:20 AM

The visit with Dr. King was very good. Dr. X has been my dr. before, but not a very good one.

April 2, 2020 4:33 AM

First visit with Dr. King (Robert F.). Good doctor I will continue as his patient.

March 23, 2020 11:49 AM

The only negative thing is trying to get an appointment with Dr. King, check-up or illness, is very difficult.

March 23, 2020 7:47 AM

I was pleased with the doctor.

March 23, 2020 7:47 AM


March 18, 2020 12:28 PM

Very good.

March 18, 2020 12:28 PM

I have been under care of the same dr. for more than 40 yrs.

March 16, 2020 4:10 PM

Dr King is very knowledgeable, attentive, concerned

March 16, 2020 4:10 PM

Not a big fan of call centers. I would rather speak with the Drs office when I call the Drs office

March 16, 2020 4:07 PM

Dr. King was very kind and helpfulk

March 16, 2020 4:07 PM

very good experience

March 16, 2020 3:02 PM

I often have to email the doctor directly and ask for an appointment because the call center and on line appointments are full for 3 weeks. I don't understand what I am supposed to do if I am sick or injured. I can't wait 3 weeks to see MY doctor. Dr King is accommodating and will make time to see me, but the appointment system is ridiculous. I have tried video with another provider and I felt uncomfortable that I was not scene. Dr. King has recently been concerned about my blood pressure at my face to face visit whereas a video or urgent care do not know my history. Dr. King is wonderful and truly cares about me and my family!

March 2, 2020 3:11 PM

Dr. King is thorough in his examination and takes the time to listen to my concerns. He and his staff are prompt, courteous and compassionate. I am very pleased with his expertise and care given.

February 28, 2020 11:42 AM

Dr. King is the best. Makes me & my husband very comfortable & is very competent, very knowledgeable.

February 28, 2020 11:42 AM

Very patient & caring. I dislike answering service & would like direct number to office.

February 24, 2020 10:06 PM

Dr. King took the time to listen to the issue I was having with my eye. He talked about different options , treatment and possible follow up. He also recommended an eye doctor if the condition worsened.

February 24, 2020 10:06 PM

Dr. King is very personable , professional and experienced.

February 22, 2020 11:00 AM

I always enjoy seeing Dr. King for my checkups.

February 15, 2020 10:11 AM

I was to be given a referral to an ENT specialist. it took a week of phone calls to finally get the name of the doctor. once again I have to say how terrible the answering system is and find it cumbersome as a patient to use. why can't we talk directly to the doctors office without going through a middle person. other systems do it

February 13, 2020 11:29 AM

There needs to be communication between the call centers- the dr.'s offices. There is a big misconnect.

February 13, 2020 11:29 AM

The experience at the office with the dr. is always good. To get appts. to get in is not good. Advocate has lost their personal touch with theses new systems. There's a whole generation out there of baby boomers, & when you need to get in, you need to get in to see the dr. The offices are in need of a couple of people not 4 & no one doing anything. Dr. King & nurses good.

February 10, 2020 2:09 PM

very caring and warm

February 10, 2020 5:33 AM

Dr. Bob King is the best! I've been a patient for over 20+ years. Thanks Dr. King!!

February 8, 2020 11:35 PM

Dr. King is a great Dr. who always has good advice for my health that I almost always agree with.

February 8, 2020 11:35 PM

All good, but wish I could sometimes have a little more time with the Dr.

February 4, 2020 12:35 PM

Dr. King is an excellent physician! I have been a patient of his for the past 25 years. Several of my family members are patients of Dr. King. He is by far the best doctor I have ever had!!

February 4, 2020 12:35 PM

Your phone center or call center is awful!! ... my messages are not returned when I call my doctor's office during regular hours. The _____ do not listen well. They _____ to need more internal training!

February 3, 2020 5:34 PM

Very thorough exam. Dr King is also very personable besides being a great doctor.

January 30, 2020 7:29 AM

nurse was unpleasant and made a face like she was disgusted when I told her my problem. immediately felt uncomfortable and I will definitely be finding a new doctor's office.

December 17, 2019 3:32 PM

Don't let Dr King ever retire.................he's the reason I'm with Advocate

December 17, 2019 10:14 AM
