Patient comments

Comments from our patients:

Dr. Davis is an amazingly thorough doctor. She covers all my medical needs and emotional needs. She takes the TIME to make me feel like her only patient! She is the kind of doctor all doctors should be.

Dr. Westermann is GREAT – attentive, thoughtful, and competent. She spent an inordinate amount of time with me during this and previous appointments discussing concerns and answering questions.

I am a retired UIHC physician and perhaps a bit more critical of how care is delivered so when I say Dr. Beck is the best physician anyone could ever hope for, I really mean it. She is prepared and up to date having reviewed your chart. She is kind, thoughtful, intelligent, and caring. She is my wife's physician also. We consider ourselves blessed to have Dr. Beck as our doctor … She is the best representative UIHC could possibly have.

I could not possibly ask for any better service from a physician! Dr. Donelson patiently listened to my concerns and conducted a very thorough examination. She very clearly explained my treatment options and a further diagnostic test I could consider.

As always, Dr. Fiordellisi is the most caring, thoughtful, and concerned doctor I have ever had. She is always willing to listen to my sometimes unusual issues and puts forth effort to help me find solutions or care for my ailments and/or discomforts. I am very lucky to have her on my care team!

Dr. Alpana Garg was phenomenal! I felt like she was a very good listener, heard my concerns and addressed them appropriately. Very clear and thorough when explaining my plan of care.

Dr. Hill was very thorough and made me feel as a valued member of my healthcare treatment and planning decisions. I look forward to continuing my future healthcare with IRL.

Dr. [Amanda] Hoffman was wonderful – caring and competent.

Dr. Krista Johnson is always so friendly and thorough … I always enjoy talking to her. [She] is awesome!

Susan Kaliszewski is the most excellent care provider I have ever had … Susan is an excellent listener, and her caring nature permeates our visits. Put that with her knowledge and you have a superior care provider. That is Susan.

Dr. Katz has been my doctor for 20 years and always checks me thoroughly and is always very kind and courteous.

Dr. Klein is knowledgeable yet generous and compassionate when addressing my mental health struggles. I am enormously grateful to him for his help.

Dr. Lundberg is the BEST.

Dr. Suneja is a fantastic physician. Both my husband and I feel very fortunate to be her patients. Total confidence in her. She is a pleasure to see.

Dr. Thondapu is an excellent doctor; I am always somewhat anxious when I have a doctor’s appointment, and Dr. Thondapu and her nurse are so welcoming and easy to talk with, my anxiety soon dissipates!! I have recommended Dr. Thondapu to others, she and her staff are absolutely wonderful!!!

Dr. White is an excellent provider. She takes the time to answer my questions and is very compassionate. I am very confident that she will give me the best care.

Dr. Zeitler has always been wonderful to work with.

Ann Struve was especially gentle & attentive, sitting with mom & always seeing if she needed anything.

Dr. Melinda Johnson was very understanding & compassionate to our mom and us, gentle, patient, made it so personal (like a family member). She loved our family through this difficult time.

Palliative Care Team – My family & I would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your amazing and attentive care while our Dad was there! You all are wonderful and make the End of Life process a good one.

Dr. Schilling is an excellent physician.

Dr. Richard Hoffman was thorough, concerned, patient and completely knowledgeable. We would rate him as one of the best doctors we’ve had, and we’ve had many excellent doctors.

Emily Rockafellow is great.
