My appointment was at 12PM, and I arrived at 11:45AM. They did not call me into the back until 12:55PM. I was waiting for more than an hour and it was very upsetting. The nurse was very kind and helpful. When the doctor came in, she looked at my problem and told me I was fine. Did not explain anything to me, did not tell me I needed testing, and I left very uncertain as to what to do next. She told me that I COULD come back and fix the problem at a later date. I was just so confused and did not know what to say, what to do, or what the next step was. I waited over an hour for me to meet with her for 5 minutes and ... for NOTHING. It was very upsetting and very disappointed. My mom has been seen by this doctor before and she said she did not like her. I meet with this doctor anyways because it took a MONTH to get an appointment with anyone in that office. Overall, it took over a month to get an appointment, I waited over an hour, meet with the doctor for 5 minutes, and ...ALL FOR NOTHING. I have been with Elmhurst health care for several years now and I have never been this disappointed.

I was told to apply a cream on certain areas twice a week with no written instructions on location of the areas.
