This my very first time at the Elmhurst hospital! from the time I entered through the Main entrance at 5:50 a.m. I was greeted with such a pleasant and warm greeting. Directed to the second floor for surgery and getting prepped! Elaine Biester is a Phenomenal Ob/ Gyne and the staff at Elmhurst from the anthiesolgist to staff just passing by! It was a very pleasant first experience! Kudos to Elmhurst! Thanks for the excellent service Dr. Biester of course, .... The entire Care Team surgery reception! Thanks again and sorry if I missed a name! Awesome experience

I would have liked more thorough feedback from my doctor refering to lab results. The nurse very promtly and thoughtfully responded to questions I sent using the online MyChart message center regarding my lab result but with some typos/spelling errors that I found a bit unprofessional. I visited for the first time with this doctor because the appointment I schedule with my normal doctor was cancelled. I made the appointment online, received a phone and email confirmation/reminder, but when I appeared for my appointment, the receptionist responded that there must have been a glitch in the system because the doctor was out of the office that week. This was very frustrating.

The only thing that has been a little annoying is getting the results of my ultrasounds. The last ultrasound I had, the results are still not on my mychart after more than a week later. Before these results use to be posted fairly quickly. Other than that, I truly like my OBGYN office.

Dr. Biester is an outstanding doctor and her staff is wonderful. I've followed her to 3 different office locations so far and I appreciate that she's managed to stay within Oak Park. I always receive a call back when need within an hour and have never had a bad experience with her or her staff. It's always a pleasant atmosphere.
