I am pleased with each and every person that I have encountered since I began my interaction with Edward-Elmhurst. They are great!

I always encounter a great experience coming to my follow up visits to his office. His nurse however who took my vitals could be more friendlier. She hardly sparks a conversation or keeps one word answers. Def just treats you like a number from a deli vs giving you patient care. I've seen her twice and the first time I thought she was just having a bad day, but the second time I encountered her was not the case.
