I don't appreciate waiting inside the room for 45minutes the doctor could be busy but somebody (like nurse) should know know of the _____ & provide status update on the wait time.

March 27, 2020 5:25 AM

I like my doctor but hate sitting inside the room for over 45 minutes waiting for the doctor to show up.

February 1, 2020 6:00 AM

Being a medical person, I understand what a professional is saying & not plain talk. As long as I have gone to Dreyer clinic (1959-2020) I have NEVER been treated badly. (I am a vegetarian.)

January 30, 2020 2:50 PM

I have such respect for Doctor Harnack, I never feel rushed and he is very polite and explains things very well. Thankful that I have a great doctor especially as I am nearing 80 years of age.

October 17, 2019 7:00 PM

Excellent.

October 14, 2019 7:00 PM

After a test came back negative they just wrote me off even though I told them I still had issues especially a low grade fever and diarrhea. Very upset they are letting me just hang even after I told them I was still sick.

September 11, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. was visibly upset that I brought up my opinion for trying an alternative homeopathic/natural new prescription and drop the old one.

Dr. Harnack is great!

March 30, 2019 7:00 PM

He met my needs.

March 22, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Harnak is a kind and understanding doctor. I believe he has a good understanding of me as a patient and offers alternative solutions other than medications. He has the experience of wearing different hats as a doctor. He is a good listener and a pretty funny too.

March 17, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Harnack is always helpful

Dr . Harnack is an excellent doctor. He answers all my questions and answers e-mails quickly. I would recommend him to ly friends and family. He treats me respectfully and answers any questions I might have.

She is always confident with Dr. Harnack.

January 29, 2019 6:00 PM

appt was for significant dizziness. was told it was likely vertigo, but given no info as to why or what to do about it. I'm coming in again this week with my primary doctor, who I can rarely get an appt with, as it hasn't improved. This appt was a waste of my time.

January 29, 2019 6:00 PM

good

January 13, 2019 6:00 PM

This was my "transition visit" after my 37 year relationship with Internist and friend X had ended with his retirement 6 months earlier. I was very pleased with Dr Harnack, although a bit disappointed when the two referrals had not gone through in 5 weeks, allegedly due to Advocate computer transitioning.

November 29, 2018 6:00 PM

Very good.

November 15, 2018 6:00 PM

The best ever.

November 15, 2018 6:00 PM

Excellent Doctor.

November 8, 2018 6:00 PM

My Primary care physician retired in June. This was my first visit to officially establish Dr Harnack as my new primary care Physician. I am very happy with him, his level of competence and care and how I was treated.

October 16, 2018 7:00 PM

Exceptional - my highest evaluation!

October 6, 2018 7:00 PM

great experience

September 18, 2018 7:00 PM

This was my first visit. We talked for about 15 min. He only checked my heart and lungs. He did not discuss my blood test which was taken a week before the appointment.

September 16, 2018 7:00 PM

always concerned, never in a hurry. down to earth advice. Great guy

September 15, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Harnack, keep up the great work. I am grateful to have you as my health care provider.

September 15, 2018 7:00 PM

I feel that the provider doesn't do as much as they use to do years ago.

September 10, 2018 7:00 PM

It was a pleasure to meet Dr. Harnack. He was very polite, soft-spoken, and did a great job during my wellness check. He renewed prescriptions, ordered all the future procedures that I will need, and listened to my "getting old complaints."

September 10, 2018 7:00 PM

very pleased with the short wait time.

August 22, 2018 7:00 PM

He was very nice and helpful - Friendly and explained everything in understandable terms.

August 20, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Harnack is patient, kind and he notices things about you that other doctors do not. He has an easy-going demeanor, yet states what is important for good health. I felt he listened and understood me and my health care.

August 13, 2018 7:00 PM

He is a very caring person and competent but completely over-worked and over-scheduled.

July 16, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Harnack, excellent dr., caring, listening to all questions! Been with him for years!

July 2, 2018 7:00 PM

Since becoming Advocate, you do not allow the Dr. enough time for each appt. They are rushed through the appt. time. It's just not the same as it was when they were just Dreyer Medical.

June 19, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Harnack has been my doctor for many years and I am very satisfied with his care.

May 28, 2018 7:00 PM
