Dr. Aranador went above and beyond to help me when I came in for an annual physical. She was incredibly thorough and her follow up with my test results was very timely (within 12 hours of my scheduled appointment and shecalled me personally). I will definitely return to see her again!

There were a few negative reviews on Zocdoc of Dr. Arañador that made me a touch nervous to go see her, but my trepidation was completely unfounded! Dr. Arañador is a unique gem in the medical profession. She believes strongly inproviding continuity of care by setting up a patient fusion profile for you where you can go and view your medical results at your own leisure without having to worry about the hassle of calling the office when you have forgotten details about your medical history. Dr. Arañador gave me wonderful advice about traveling abroad and managing my medical history. She was also extremely friendly, showing interest in me as a human being, not merely as a patient. She does speak fast and with an accent, but I was still able to understand her fully and she took the time to understand my personal concerns and medical background. I definitely recommend Dr. Arañador as a caring and attentive medical provider (she even texted me directly after the appointment to make sure I didn't forget to fax her my vaccination history!). Coming from a rural area, I never guessed that I would get such personalized attention from a provider connected to a large hospital in Chicago! Also, she was very prompt in receiving me and completing all the details of the appointment with speed and accuracy.

I did not feel welcome and taken care of. Doctor kept pushing vaccination agenda and registering on some, I guess, partner site instead of focusing on a reason for my visit. Sorry, do not recommend, but feel free to check outfor yourself. Maybe it will work out for you better then it did for me

Was incredibly rude and imoatient, cut me off when I answered her questions. I respect English as a second language for folks, but her general disorganized manner coupled with her consistently mixing up my responses (with similar soundingwords) was worrisome--I wasn't sure if she was hearing me correctly. I worried about her being homophobic based on her reaction to my question regarding a partner. Also, she talked about other patients, in comparison to me, in an unfavorable manner, which made me worry what she would say about me.

I have never seen such a disorganized office. I was seen in a break room without any kind of exam table or equipment. No vitals were taken. The doctor was in and out dealing with other things about 7 different times,and then passed me off on another doctor who encouraged me not to take medications, and asked me extremely personal (psychiatric) questions in a room of about 6 strangers. There had to have been at least 3 HIPAA violations just in the time I was there, and I wouldn't be surprised if this clinic was shut down. I would strongly suggest looking elsewhere especially if your health issue is pressing- as it will not be addressed or treated at this office.

Knowledgeable doctor but her students are a distraction. Did give advice on getting cheaper care, seems to understand how expensive things are. I went to an independent MRI clinic that would cost less than ordering the tests from her associated hospital. Works quickly.
