Good experience.

May 27, 2020 2:18 PM

I was very satisfied with Dr. Sonia Virparia.

May 21, 2020 11:26 AM

THE VISIT WAS ON ZOOM DUE TO THE PANDEMIC. I WAS GLAD MY PHYSICIAN RESPONDED TO MY QUEST TO ORDER MY LABWORK PRIOR TO THE VISIT AND THAT SHE PUT IN AN ORDER FOR ADDITIONAL LAB PRIOR TO THE NEXT VISIT. I PREFER THIS SO WE CAN DISCUSS THE RESULTS PERSON TO PERSON.

May 21, 2020 11:26 AM

GOOD EXPERIENCE

May 18, 2020 10:32 PM

Dr. Sonia Virparia always explains everything,always answers whole my questions.

May 18, 2020 10:32 PM

Always smiling, cares about us.

May 18, 2020 3:08 PM

provider makes us feel she is concerned about my care. promptly responds to communications

May 18, 2020 3:08 PM

My husband looks forward to appointments with this provider

May 15, 2020 9:40 AM

Dr. Virparia listened to my issues and referred me to a cardiologist which was also a virtual visit. The last 2 doctors I had at Advocate left there and I saw another doctor. I would like to have a regular doctor. Dr. Virparia agreed to be my regular doctor but we have not scheduled anything.

April 27, 2020 8:01 PM

good. support staff very helpful setting up Zoom app

April 20, 2020 9:18 AM

I talked to Dr. Virparia by phone while I was home w/COVID virus. She was helpful w/information.

April 17, 2020 12:00 AM

Dr. Virparia was very helpful in answering all my questions.

April 17, 2020 12:00 AM

Dr. Virparia was very patient while my daughter helped me take my blood pressure using my home blood pressure machine!

March 17, 2020 8:18 AM

Excellent

March 17, 2020 8:18 AM

Always good

March 16, 2020 9:11 PM

Dr. Virparia is a fantastic doctor who really cares about me as a patient. She takes the time to talk to me about how things are going with me, extending past the reason for my appointments. she is very knowledgeable and I feel confident that whatever I see her for, she knows the right way to treat me.

March 16, 2020 2:30 PM

So I feel she should have paid more attention to my injury and how it effects my particular work.

March 16, 2020 9:12 AM

Waited over an hour to be seen by provider never had this happen with my previous provider my last 2 visit I have had to wait.

February 26, 2020 12:56 PM

It was very good

January 28, 2020 8:41 AM

Good , i felt comfortable & well taken care of .

January 28, 2020 7:16 AM

very pleasant; wait times are short for the doctor visit & blood draw; receptionist scheduled right away my next doctor's appointment & took care of registering me for the blood test the same day.

January 21, 2020 9:15 AM

Ihad the first appt. of the day, so there was no delay in seeing the Dr.

January 21, 2020 9:15 AM

Was good, glad no delays;

January 20, 2020 7:25 AM

No comment, always good.

January 18, 2020 12:25 PM

Good, positive experience as usual. Dr. Virparia is thorough and definitely checks on all my concerns.

January 13, 2020 1:48 PM

This was our first meet, and so far I like her. No complaints.

January 13, 2020 1:48 PM

she answered my questions and did not make me feel stupid on the lack of knowledge I had on the subject. I am hoping in the future I can gain more trust in that she is providing me the best health and that she is concerned about my health.

January 7, 2020 5:19 PM

Was a good experience. She took care of business.

January 7, 2020 5:19 PM

good experience

January 6, 2020 3:22 PM

Got in fast and it went well.

January 6, 2020 3:22 PM

Excellent experience and kept the prescriptions to a minimum.

December 31, 2019 11:00 PM

he actual visit was fine, grief, but fine. The unfortunate part was the wit time. Almost 2 hours wait time. Patients were getting irritated. And there was a lot of confusion as to what line to wait in for processing/admission.

December 28, 2019 9:13 PM

I like Sonia Virparia. She is very professional,polite,answers whole my questions.

December 28, 2019 9:13 PM

Allways good experience.

December 16, 2019 3:11 PM

really not bad she was just giving me text book thing to do which I already have done .

December 14, 2019 8:53 AM

HAPPY WITH MY VISIT.

December 14, 2019 8:53 AM

friendly , smile, listen , good experience ,

December 14, 2019 7:46 AM

she's very nice, sweet and busy lady

December 14, 2019 7:46 AM

so far, so good

December 12, 2019 10:26 AM

Dr. Virparia is awesome! Very kind, thorough, and caring.

December 9, 2019 5:44 PM

She was very cold and seemed very unprofessional.

December 5, 2019 5:36 PM

Excellent experience. She seen my need to talk about the resent death of my mother and the need to go to behavioral counseling for help.

December 5, 2019 5:36 PM

Dr. Sonia Virparia is an excellent doctor and has much compassion and care for her patients. She truly is a blessing to me.

December 2, 2019 3:42 PM

I felt very uncomfortable with this provider and will never see her again. I would never recommend her to anyone. I was in the room crying and she didn't even care. She seems very selfish and in considerate. She was very argumentative towards me and I did not appreciate it. It was a huge mistake and waste of my time seeing this doctor since nothing got accomplished.

November 27, 2019 6:27 AM

very impersonal & apathetic and cold. not sure if she's in a hurry or not comfortable checking my ears and throat

November 27, 2019 6:27 AM

I was 15 minutes early for my appointment. I waited between 30-45 minutes in the examining room, I had to ask the nurse if I had not been forgotten.

November 26, 2019 7:54 AM

Dr. Virparia is an excellent doctor. I always feel like she listens to me as a patient and genuinely cares about my well being. She is very knowledgeable when it comes to my health care and I feel confident that when I see her I am getting the best treatment.

November 25, 2019 12:54 PM

She is knowledgeable - about me.

November 25, 2019 12:54 PM

All good.

November 25, 2019 12:32 PM

Waited almost one hour. Didn't feel like my provider listened to my concerns. Asked me to come back if I don't get better in 5 days. Some of us can't afford 2 visits in a month.

November 25, 2019 12:32 PM

Slow receptionists, extremely crowded and over scheduled place will NOT go back.

November 19, 2019 8:24 AM

Always pleasant.

November 19, 2019 8:24 AM

all good

November 19, 2019 5:27 AM

good

November 17, 2019 11:00 PM

Provider was very respectful and helpful with my child's needs during her visit.

November 17, 2019 11:00 PM

good

November 1, 2019 7:00 PM

dr virparia spent too much time talking and little time listening.

November 1, 2019 7:00 PM

I had a good experience. My doctor did a thorough job during my check up

October 27, 2019 7:00 PM

good

October 25, 2019 7:00 PM

I came to see Dr. Varparia for f/u after a severe fall; I also had foot pain. She addressed the foot pain by ordering an xray, but did not address my severe bruising on my back, arms, and both legs. I was not even given a gown to put on. When I asked her if she wanted to see my injuries, she said no. I even dropped my pants for her to see my legs. She just glanced at them and said it would take time. Had she bothered to examine them, she would have seen that I had cellulitis. I went to another doctor 6 days later and then started receiving treatment for cellulitis, which I already had when I saw Dr. Varparia. She should have treated me with more concern, even though I am not her regular patient. Perhaps my cellulitis would be healing better if I had earlier treatment.

October 24, 2019 7:00 PM

Great experience and excellent care team!

October 20, 2019 7:00 PM

I felt that my health concerns were taken seriously. I was listened to.

October 20, 2019 7:00 PM

the dr told me it seemed like I was getting better. I told her it didn't seem that way. Sure enough the next day I was 10 times worse with no voice. I had to contact her today to let her know that I was worse and wasn't sleeping. She then sent a prescription to my pharmacy. Very poor way to care for a patient if you ask me.

October 14, 2019 7:00 PM

very impressed with the doctor seeing me same day. she was thorough and listened carefully to my concerns

October 14, 2019 7:00 PM

horrible bedside manner. didn't explain cough test she just did it. he cried. also really got on him for his weight gain he cried until 10 pm when he went to bed as a mom of 3 I know she was way harsh this is unacceptable!

October 6, 2019 7:00 PM

It was a very good experience

October 1, 2019 7:00 PM

My appointment was at 4:00, but the provider did not come into the examination room until 4:45.

September 30, 2019 7:00 PM

She was very kind. It was the first time I had met her.

September 16, 2019 7:00 PM

it was good

September 16, 2019 7:00 PM

medical service has been excellent

September 16, 2019 7:00 PM

she was just moderately concerned about my questions & issues, once referring me to a manager.

September 11, 2019 7:00 PM

Thorough and cooperative.

September 1, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Virparia is an excellent Dr with a caring and compassionate personality. She is extremely intelligent and I am so happy I found her.

September 1, 2019 7:00 PM

it was positive. I have b/p goals and will be followed in 6 mos. my insurance covers a free blood pressure monitor and the paperwork was done

August 20, 2019 7:00 PM

I was upset because Dr. Virparia told me to wait in exam room for info she wanted me to have. I waited 10+ minutes and no one came. I left and no one even noticed. the next day I asked someone to call me. Waited 5 hours and called and asked to just have the info mailed. 6 days later still don't have it.

August 18, 2019 7:00 PM

She has always took time to explain or answer my questions. I was sad to lose my former Provider however I'm comfortable with my new Provider.

August 12, 2019 7:00 PM

Because I was the last appointment I felt rushed. My situation required follow-up from me but getting back into communication with them was terrible!! They never indicated if they were working on my request or not!

July 19, 2019 7:00 PM

I always feel so welcomed and cared for when I come to your office for help, guidance or just my annual check up. I felt silly for crying the last time I came to see you, but you were so attentive and kind it really helped me not stress out so much, especially over a very common thing like a yeast infection and BV. Honestly, the best doctor I've ever been too. So thankful!

July 18, 2019 7:00 PM

attentive and very knowledgeable.

July 15, 2019 7:00 PM

went in for chronic lower back pain and wasn't given an answer. felt like I was just overlooked. appointment was only 10 min long and then I was on my way.

July 14, 2019 7:00 PM

the provider was easy to talk to about the reason I went in

July 10, 2019 7:00 PM

I had a 'female issue', 'burning a lot' and this dr. treated me very well, prescribed for my condition, did some cultures. This was a good experience and it needed a FEMALE.

June 28, 2019 7:00 PM

it seems as of she only wants to get more patients but shes not really a people person, if she doesnt like what she does she should get a career change

June 24, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Virparia is wonderful so easy to talk to.I'm so glad I found her.She makes me feel so comfortable.Thank you for her Advocate

June 16, 2019 7:00 PM

first visit with doctor pleased with her professionalism. call me with my lab results and discuss. Nice to speak with the doctor.

June 14, 2019 7:00 PM

the doctor was very thorough and took the time to call me a few days later with lab results

May 29, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Virparia, her nurse and the whole Advocate facility are very good.

May 20, 2019 7:00 PM

Doctor, nurses, and staff very helpful. The new referral system is horrible. Very confusing. Printed referral does not have the location of the doctor office. Now just lists a doctor name. I have seen these doctors before so I know where I'm going but this seems like a bad idea for new patients. Now also something called an "Order" is involved in this process.

May 20, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Virparia is always prompt and wants to address my concerns. She's great

May 19, 2019 7:00 PM

this is the first time that I was seen by Dr. Virparia. I had been seeing Dr. X before. I was very satisfied with Dr. Viparia.

May 19, 2019 7:00 PM

The provider's nurse rushed asking questions and had a poor attitude. The nurse was asking me health questions in the hallway as we were walking to the exam room.

May 18, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr.Vaparia seem like a very competent doctor, she is friendly and personable, I have only seen her a few times and haven't gotten to know her very well.
