this was my first visit to Dr. Prusek who agreed to become my Primary Care Physician. I chose her because she is within the Elmhurst doctors who I already see, and use Elmhurst Hospital for hospital of choice. consolidating my doctors on one place seems o be the best move. Dr. Prusek is well skilled in all the areas of health issues I have. so grateful for her care.

My first meeting with Dr. Prusek went extremely well.

I liked Dr Prusek but not sure I can visit the location again. The woman at the reception was so extremely rude popping her gum, telling anyone who entered the building that she'd be with them in a moment just to have them stand there in silence while she had her head down for about 30 seconds with no one in front of her then would look up and ask how she could help them. I checked in 4 minutes after my appt time and she told me she would have to "ask the doctor if she could still see me". I don't care much for bullies on power trips so maybe the Main Campus would be a better option for me.

I have been seeing Dr. Prusek for the last approximately a year and a half, after my former primary care doctor retired. I feel so fortunate to have Dr Prusek as my new doctor. She is thorough and she listens to me. She addresses all my concerns and calls me with test results immediately. I feel like she cares. I would highly recommend Dr. Prusek.
