Excellent provider - the best!

July 7, 2020 4:05 PM

Routine melanoma check. Went well.

July 7, 2020 4:05 PM

I was happy to see the precautions that have been implemented to reduce COVID exposure.

June 30, 2020 11:14 AM

Dr. Bulj is an excellent doctor. she is very thorough and I respect her judgement.

June 30, 2020 11:14 AM

I self treated a growth on my forehead with a cream Dr. Bulj recommended. we had made the decision through an evisit and virtual visit. Because of what the cream did, she wanted to see how it had cleared up. I very much appreciate Dr. Bulj squeezing me in with an appointment. Staff was very helpful in making me feel safe with the process of coming into the building.

June 29, 2020 4:15 PM

I find Dr. Bulj to be a kind, concerned and expert diagnostician. It is pleasure to have her and her nurse Lynn always there for me as I travel through a rare disease that also includes working with specialists in Chicago.

June 29, 2020 4:05 PM

A good examination/visit. Surgical follow-up referrals were discussed and carried out.

June 29, 2020 4:05 PM

My experience with Advocate Medical Group has been very satisfactory.

June 4, 2020 8:28 AM


June 4, 2020 8:28 AM

Very good - Excellent.

May 19, 2020 8:07 PM

I've seen this provider in the past and by far she's my favorite dermatologist. I've seen 4 other dermatologists due to insurance changes and I was so glad when I was able to come back to see her! She's so patient and joyful, you can tell she truly loves what she does and wants her patients to feel better!

April 28, 2020 10:37 AM

Tanya is one of the best! Great doctor and great human!

April 23, 2020 9:01 AM

She is very personable and visit was very pleasant.

April 23, 2020 9:01 AM

Really liked that she spoke to me in terms that I could understand.

April 16, 2020 9:09 AM

Dr. Bulj was so sweet & helpful despite being on a call visit b/c of the shut down. I was very happy after hanging up.

March 27, 2020 12:00 AM

Everything good - no complaints at all.

March 27, 2020 12:00 AM

Smooth, uneventful.

March 22, 2020 3:49 PM

The doctor was very thorough during this visit.

March 21, 2020 8:20 AM

If I am correct that you are talking about my light therapy nurse, I have nothing but praise for her. She is the kindest, most efficient person I know. In fact the entire battery of nurses are wonderful. This nurse in particular couldn't have been better in explaining the new situation for light therapy patients in this time of crisis and what I should do which was to call my skin doctor to see if I could get permission from her to go off light therapy for a certain amount of time because of this new virus. If I got that permission she would call me when I could come back. I appreciate her calm demeanor relating this new protocol and did exactly what she told me to do.

March 18, 2020 2:59 PM

Thank you for being such an outstanding doctor.

March 18, 2020 12:32 PM

My experience with Dr. Bulj is always caring, informative, pleasant, comfortable. She is the best!!!

March 9, 2020 1:23 PM

As always, Dr. Bujl is a wonderful doctor!

March 3, 2020 2:23 PM

I have confidence in the doctor, although she does seem rushed because she is overscheduled.

March 3, 2020 2:02 PM

Very pleased to have Dr. Bulj attend to my skin care.

March 3, 2020 2:02 PM

Got great advice and support for my skin needs.

February 22, 2020 10:59 AM


February 22, 2020 1:20 AM

Thank you to your staff for understanding my need to have a skin lesion assessed promptly and for giving me an appointment within 2 weeks. Thank you for removing the lesion and send it for biopsy- it was indeed a squamous cell skin cancer. Thank you for promptly referring me to Dr X Ent and Plastic specialist for evaluation and treatment.

February 22, 2020 1:20 AM

Good experience. All staff were kind, professional. Careful assessment and treatment were given. Follow up care and referral were given based on biopsy results without delay. My concerns and the requests of my PCP were honored. Thank you.

excellent care by Dr. Bulj and her nurse

February 3, 2020 4:10 PM

very patient and proactive

January 27, 2020 1:39 PM

Dr Bujl's office has always been very kind and professional. If I can wait I will choose to ONLY go to her if I have a question or issue.

January 27, 2020 1:39 PM

The women in the front reception area always welcoming. They will even recognize me (not sure that is a good thing :). I hope they also get credit for the work they do.

January 25, 2020 11:00 AM

She very carefully explained the results about previous biopsy and surgery again took more biopsies

January 25, 2020 11:00 AM

She is very easy to talk to

December 27, 2019 11:00 PM

She was very good. She checked my face and did a body check for skin problem. She took care of the 2 she found, and changed my medication for my face, since the medicine was drying it out.

December 21, 2019 7:45 AM

The best Dermatologist I have ever seen

December 21, 2019 7:45 AM

1. Please keep Dr Bujl at the Batavia location. 2. This survey was answered only about my skin doctor, Dr Bujl.

good experience. worth waiting for

November 23, 2019 7:28 AM

Very good.

November 18, 2019 6:18 PM

This doctor was thorough and she takes the approach to start with cream and a pill for two weeks and then go to the next step to see what will and won't work to resolve my problem. She listened to me and was efficient with time.

November 17, 2019 11:00 PM

Dr. Bulj seemed rushed and I felt could have spent more time completing the skin check.

November 17, 2019 11:00 PM

Very pleasant experience as expected.

November 16, 2019 6:51 PM

I love Dr. Bulj - I think that she is a fantastic doctor, for me and my family!

November 16, 2019 6:47 PM

Dr. Bulj is fantastic, hands down. We have been going to her for our routine dermatology visits since my children were very young. She explains all procedures with them, and the importance of good skin care and maintenance. Each child has had a procedure (moles removed), but she is very gentle, caring, kind and compassionate with her approach. We appreciate her demeanor and professionalism, great doctor!

November 15, 2019 11:00 PM

Dr. Bulj is a great dermatologist. Very interested in her patients and very caring. I highly recommend her.

November 15, 2019 11:00 PM
