Dr. Arañador was awesome! she's such a sweet and attentive woman. She took care of all the issues I was having and even gave me some tips for my health. The only problem was the wait but even that I expect when going to the doctor.

Love going to see Dr. Aranador! She's hilarious, blunt, doesn't sugar coat things, and is eccentric. That's why I like her so much! Not only does she always make me laugh, she also takes the time to explain medical things in detail to make sure I understand them. She's the best!

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 in providing 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.

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 sounding words) 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.

I have seen this doctor twice and I tried not to get scared off the first time but she has the worst bedside manner I've ever encountered. The first time, she scolded me for my career choice of becoming a medical professional throughout the whole appointment.This second time she had me come into the room with someone still there as she brushed off his questions and told him to go. She literally yelled at me for not having an immunization record printed even though I had showed it to her in my first visit. She was with a medical student who was kind, but she would not let go or lower her voice over how I didn't think through coming to an appointment without a printed copy of my immunizations. I will be finding a new doctor. People have bad days, I understand that, but talking over someone and literally yelling at them throughout 2 appointments is too much for even me.

Dr Arañador is intelligent and sensitive - two things which are rarely seen together in a medical professional (imo). It takes patience to understand her bedside manner, but that is paid back when you realize that she is a doctor that listens to everyhing you say and is able to look deeper into your problems.

What a mess...gross office, not big enough room for a patient visit, she was rushed and asking a million questions a minute and then not listening/interrupting. Ignored my concerns and tried for an hour to figure out how to work the computer, calling IT guys about her password, and being flat-out rude to me. I literally got up and walked out an hour in, something I have never come close to doing, and I have been through the ringer before with bad doctors...
