I really didn't have my questions addressed. They were very nice & friendly but didn't deal with the fear I had or explain why I didn't need to fear. They really weren't interested since I want a permanent patient.

I was in the emergency room on .... Stayed over night and Dr. Hussain saw me. Then I followed up with him. Seeing that I will need a pulmonologist I will stay with him. He was excellent.

I actually went to the wrong location & the receptionist called the correct office & asked them if I should reschedule. The correct office asked the dr., & he said to come on in - even tho I would be about an hour late. And they squeezed me in!!

I love Elmhurst Health and the ease of use with MyChart even making payments or scheduling procedures. For this particular visit, I checked in online so the check in n staff joked "you sure made my job easy" :)
