May 28, 2020 2:02 PM

This office used to be very friendly - now it's "professional", but not really friendly.

May 26, 2020 10:03 AM

The receptionist did not ask me the question if I hhad chills, which I most certainily would have said yes because I have had for 2 weeks and then the receptionist said, you didn't say yes to this question, now I have to go bacck and start all over. More staff taking calls would be nice and provide less room for errors.

Dr. Hulesch was one of the first doctor in Chicago-land to be a family practice provider, and we have been seeing him since he started back in the early 70's at Berwyn's McNeil Memorial Hospital. I don't know where or what I will do if he ever decides to retire, but until then, I will continue to use the practice he help found.

February 10, 2020 1:51 PM

I am very pleased with the amount of time Dr. Hulesch spent with me for my physical exam. He was very thorough when going over my lab work & medical history. He was also helpful by telling me how to improve my overall health.

Love Dr. Hulesch - he is a great guy. I was there for an annual physical and we discussed lab results and medications in detail - very happy with that. However, in terms of PHYSICAL/body exam, the only thing he did was checking my lungs. Is that all that is needed for an annual physical????
