Since this provider has merged with Advocate, the care has declined. She used to read my chart prior to coming in the room to discuss. She knew what happened. I had surgery in November and she didn't know or care. Appointments are made without explanation 1 second need an annual exam, the next minute I don't. Fasting for blood work is not communicated. A prescription was filled from November without discussing it with me. I am disappointed in the change care. I had the worst strain of bronchitis I've ever had Jan- March and no discussion about my healing given the covid situation. When I had questions regarding antibody testing I was told, this was very expensive, no guarantee that I wouldn't get it again. My question was did I have it and it seemed to be ignored.

May 26, 2020 2:24 PM

Dr Bajwa always takes the time to listen to me and answer any questions I have. This was a phone visit.

May 25, 2020 10:00 AM

It went very well and i got the results that i would have if i had seen someone in person

May 25, 2020 10:00 AM

This was my first time doing a telephone internet visit. I wish there was an easier way for seniors to do this. I was very anxios but once i connected it went fine

May 22, 2020 12:00 AM

I am happy w/my provider & heart doctor.

May 21, 2020 6:47 AM

The Batavia & St. Charles Intermediate care facilities are very prompt & very accommodating in my needs -

May 18, 2020 1:49 PM

Always available when I need anything, whether it's a mychart message, telephone call, or office visit. She answered all of my questions and felt how concerned she was regarding my questions.

May 18, 2020 1:49 PM

I am so blessed to have her as my PCP. She is always available and able to have a conversation regarding my medical care. I am confident that she knows the care that I need and always professional. She always answers all of my questions and never have a doubt in my mind that it's always the best when it comes to my treatment. I always recommend her to my friends and family!

May 16, 2020 7:25 AM

Excellent phone visit given the Covid-19 pandemic circumstances

May 12, 2020 4:49 PM

For a phone visit, I thought it was handled well.

March 28, 2020 8:21 PM

Dr Bajwa is a very professional Dr always listen and is very compassionate, I will not change my PCP.

March 28, 2020 2:05 AM

March 9, 2020 2:22 PM

Dr. Bajwa & her staff are always wonderful! Office is always clean and orderly and my visit experience is always great!

March 9, 2020 2:22 PM

Excellent experience! I've been a patient for 4 yrs now!

March 7, 2020 9:13 AM

My appointment was prompt and my provider and I appreciate that my provider and I came to a decision together about how to continue treating my mental health.

February 29, 2020 4:45 PM

Dr. Bajwa provides clear and informative answers to my questions and concerns. My mother and her sister both had an intrinsic factor problem requiring B12 injections. She included a B12 test in the blood test she was ordering and she confirmed my willingness to receive B12 injections if the blood test reported low B12.

February 29, 2020 4:45 PM

My experiences with Dr. Bajwa have been very good. She is efficient, knowledgeable and gives doable options. Under her care my overall health has improved and I am grateful.

February 25, 2020 2:23 PM

excellent

February 4, 2020 7:51 AM

It was great

January 27, 2020 10:02 PM

Thank you for listening

January 27, 2020 7:50 PM

This MD ordered labs and an echo cardiogram without informing me that she was ordering anything or the reason for them.

January 27, 2020 2:38 PM

A nice Doctor. Glad I have her to talk to. I think she is one of the best Doctors I have ever had.

January 20, 2020 2:03 PM

she listens carefully, then gives me tips to make the issue(s) better. In addition, she always gives me a printout about the issue we discussed. She has an excellent way of explaining how and why to make the issue better, and the possibilities of maybe needing a specialist if it doesn't get better with the info provided. She is an amazing Dr.

January 20, 2020 2:03 PM

I told her that besides being a wonderful Dr., she is also a good teacher. She has a special way of explaining, that you get it.

January 18, 2020 10:47 AM

Great doctor and great staff. Definitely recommend. A+ care.

December 30, 2019 10:10 AM

I really enjoy Dr. Bajwa, visiting her is always pleasent and she is a very attentive Doctor.

December 28, 2019 7:37 AM

Dr. Bajwa is the best. She spends quality time each visit and explains everything.

December 28, 2019 7:37 AM

The Best, never a bad experience.

very good experience and service.

December 23, 2019 4:59 PM

December 14, 2019 10:00 PM

feel relaxed to share my health concerns

December 12, 2019 1:19 PM

This physician always looks directly in your eyes, I never feel rushed. She always listens to me.

December 9, 2019 1:59 PM

I love and admire you Dr. Bajwa. Over the years I have sent at least 10 people to you that are now patients. I love that you spend time with me and don't ever appear to be in a hurry when I know you are behind schedule. Thank you!

December 9, 2019 1:59 PM

Always a good experience!

December 2, 2019 7:01 PM

Dr. Bajwa always does the best she can with the time she has available for me. I realize she has constraints on how much time she can spend.

November 25, 2019 3:01 PM

Dr. Bajwa is efficient, informative, and listens to my questions and gives helpful answers. During my most recent visit, she provided several ways to deal with my sinus allergies-breathing and sleeping much better now.

November 25, 2019 1:43 PM

Thank you, you do a great job

November 24, 2019 4:16 PM

Dr. Bajwa was great, as she always is. I got my flu shot and the pneumonia booster, and a yearly blood draw. I love her and look forward to seeing her.

November 18, 2019 4:13 PM

Dr Bajwa always takes the time to listen to me and answer any questions

November 18, 2019 4:13 PM

great service

October 27, 2019 7:00 PM

my experience was very good but their work place is terrible at this location. there is no room for them to write or have the computer in a comfortable position. very distracting.

October 24, 2019 7:00 PM

the dr was very helpful and answered all my questions

October 21, 2019 7:00 PM

Office visit went very well

October 21, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr Bajwa, X and X (I think that's her name) were so kind and thoughtful with me. They took time to address all my concerns! so thankful to them!

October 21, 2019 7:00 PM

Great VisitLove the Doctor

October 5, 2019 7:00 PM

dr. bajwa is amazing! she always makes me feel so lol comfortable in asking questions and she really takes the time to explain my options. I live over 40 minutes away and the drive to see her is so worth it. those that work under her are always a joy and seem happy to work with her.

October 1, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr Bajwa always fun to see, very nice

September 22, 2019 7:00 PM

I have been in to see my provider 3 times in the past 3 months over the same health condition. I was given the same medication two times even after I stated that the first time I took this medicine the problem was still present. The third time I was given the pill form of my medicine and the end result was the same. I still have this problem, the doctor is great but bad at determining what would be best for the patient and is also rushing to get out to see the next patient after I waited in the room for 30-40 minutes for Dr. Bajwa to come in. Not a horrible experience here but I would not recommend my OB/GYN to ANYBODY.

September 4, 2019 7:00 PM

For this to be my first visit, I appreciate Dr. Bagwa for helping, and understanding my asthma situation. She explained an understanding of being able to relate with my situation if asthma to help me further in the future of my asthma. The Dr even went out of her way to look into other asthmatic medications to use, because some medications are far to expensive to pay for.

August 25, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Bajwa was very timely, professional, kind, and attentive. I came in for a routine physical and to discuss vaccines prior to travel. She answered all my questions, and I felt that the visit was very productive.

August 18, 2019 7:00 PM

My Doctor Bajwa is the best family Doctor that I have ever had.

August 6, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr Bajwa is very patient and kind. She spends time and listens to concerns and does not seem rushed. My daughter has a lot of anxiety and she feels comfortable coming to see Dr Bajwa.

August 4, 2019 7:00 PM

when I arrived 15 minutes early per my phone message the sign said the Dr. was on time. My appt was at 3pm at 3:30 I went to receptionist and asked how much longer of a wait for my follow up appt. I was told my appt was at 3:15 I showed her my appt card that the office wrote out it showed 3:00. I was told the Dr. had over 55 patients today. I replied that they should not have over booked that it was impossible to see that many people in a day. I told the receptionist I had a other appt at 4:15 and needed to be leaving her office at 4pm. I was told they will try but no promises. Dr came in at 3:55 I was in my car by 4pm.

August 2, 2019 7:00 PM

My PCP was out this week so this was my first time seeing this doctor who was very helpful and listened well.

July 28, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Bajwa was running late and I felt that she was rushing during my appointment. I was able to ask questions, but felt she didn't give them much thought.

July 26, 2019 7:00 PM

This is the first time I met Dr Bajwa she is very personable. I liked her. I came in for a pre-surgery exam.

July 25, 2019 7:00 PM

I am being treated by a specialist for several digestive conditions which also effect my overall well being. She has helped me a great deal.

July 22, 2019 7:00 PM

I had several private health issues to discuss. She gave me excellent advice, and several printouts with good tips and advice. re: shoulder pain: she gave me options, and it was my decision, how to deal with it at this time. I chose the exercise option at this time., that is definitely helping.

July 21, 2019 7:00 PM

excellent

July 21, 2019 7:00 PM

Very good visit with Dr. Bajwa. She listened to all my concerns and upcoming tests & explained very well.

July 18, 2019 7:00 PM

Test results took over a week. I still did not understand the results when I was notified. I went to the office to get a better understanding.

July 14, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr.bajwa is awesome so personable! absolutely love her!

June 14, 2019 7:00 PM

I told her of a new concern (side pain more intense around my cycle) she said to address with my gynecologist without asking any further questions.

June 10, 2019 7:00 PM

excellent

June 10, 2019 7:00 PM

I came to see Dr. Bajwa regarding medication for anxiety and to talk to her about how I feel. She is very comforting and talked to me about what I can do to help with my anxiety besides the prescription she wrote me. She was very caring and listened to everything I had to say. I felt better after talking with her.

June 2, 2019 7:00 PM

Positive, helpful and assuring.

May 29, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Bajwa was wonderful with my Mom who suffers from dementia. Dr. Bajwa made my Mom feel relaxed and comfortable. She was gentle, compassionate & patient with my Mom. Kept her attention on my Mom when I needed to answer questions my Mom could not , but never making her feel uncomfortable for not remembering. X, her nurse asst was just as wonderful.

May 19, 2019 7:00 PM

I am grateful for my excellent health care.

May 19, 2019 7:00 PM

Very good

May 19, 2019 7:00 PM

very pleased with our discussion . I was MOST appreciative of Dr Bajwa giving me a printout of Departments,location and phone numbers of all services offered. it's very difficult to obtain this with all the name changes and no longer a guide book.

May 18, 2019 7:00 PM

She is a great doctor!

May 10, 2019 7:00 PM

excellent provider. great at answering my questions. made eye contact and made me feel comfortable

May 9, 2019 7:00 PM

excellent

May 6, 2019 7:00 PM

Needed a new doctor. My doctor (X) retired last year.This was a 'get acquainted' appointment to see if Doctor Bajwa and I were compatible. We certainly are, and she will be my doctor until she retires,or I EXPIRE !

April 21, 2019 7:00 PM

I have a new health issue that Dr. Bajwa has helped me get thru. She listens to my concerns and helped me get to the right specialist.

April 19, 2019 7:00 PM

I really appreciate the time she spends with me. she remembers me when I come in. I'm feel im not just a number to her. She cares. She's explains things very well.

April 17, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Bajwa is excellent, I have recommended her to several people.

April 7, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr Bajwa is always pleasant and very interested in the reason that I am being seen.

February 19, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr Bajwa & Staff have always been excellent! I feel comfortable & in good hands with my health care support Team!

February 17, 2019 6:00 PM

This visit was good.

February 16, 2019 6:00 PM

My visits to Bajwa's office have always been pleasant, from the time I walk in the sliding doors until I walk back out them to the parking lot. I was referred to Bajwa by coworkers and I have referred her to family members and friends.

February 12, 2019 6:00 PM

Definitely good.

February 10, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Bajwa is an extraordinary physician. She is compassionate and knowledgeable. I am grateful that she is my primary physician.

January 30, 2019 6:00 PM

very happy with the office visit

January 27, 2019 6:00 PM

my provider is very helpful to me with all my health problems I have the most respect and confidence in her overall knowledge.

January 26, 2019 6:00 PM

Nice Doctor. Very thorough.

January 25, 2019 6:00 PM

Usually I would give Dr Bajwa a much better rating, but this time I was extremely disappointed. She spent about 10 minutes with me including updating my health records on the computer.

January 24, 2019 6:00 PM

She listened and gave excellent advice, and information about several of my concerns. She is a wonderful Dr.

January 24, 2019 6:00 PM

This doctor is the best I have ever seen in my lifetime. She listens to what your concerns are and never dismisses any of your problems or concerns. She always has the answer for any problems I have had.

January 18, 2019 6:00 PM

Everything was excellent
