Test results from Advocate Medical Group don't always appear timely. I received a message through their system of the results yet they have not been posted into MyChart.

No matter how her day is going, Dr. Ellison always greets me with a smile. She listens intently to my concerns and asks probing questions. She presents her diagnosis and treatment options in easily understood English. She always makes sure I understand everything she has said and invites my input. What a marvelous doctor.

I felt doctor seems to rush to complete appointment. there were not much conversations about my helath or concern. everything was very quick. in the past, doctor would ask me about my health and concerns, and do much better check. this time, I do not think i had good check up except nurse's regular routine check, and doctor's heart beat, and order tests. I felt I might need to find some better doctor who care patients and spend some time with them.

I have a lot of confidence in Dr Ellison.
