Very understanding and professional
Great Doctor! Very thorough and personable. Takes the time to listen to me and addressed all my concerns. The only problem is waiting an hour to be seen.

Once again I have visited Dr gaziano and staff and I have to say that it is the most efficient doctor I have ever met in my 40 Years of Living in this world, he is the best doctor I have ever met and has a lovely crew that assist you, so the answer is yes I will be seeing Dr gaziano for the rest of my life, and if anybody is looking for a good doctor Dr gaziano is the key to success. Robert, SEMPER FI..!!!!!!!
He is very patient and explains all options.
It was amazing! He was kind and very understanding! Also, he helped me through personal issues and showed me ways to cope with my issues. I was VERY comfortable and his assistant are around my age and that made me feel even more comfortable!
I thought the doctor was very thorough. He and his assistants took a lot of time to get to know me and what I was there for. They addressed all my needs and I will be pleased to go back for a follow-up.

Robert S. USMC
Dr. G is awesome. He took the time to listen to everything I wanted to talk about and gave me great advice. I feel like having Dr. G as my PCP is a great addition to my health improvement path.
Hello how are you doing today was my visit to see my favorite doctor mr. Gaziano and I've been reading the reviews from some of his patients and they are by far the wrong is information I've ever read yes there is a waiting time to see him that's because he has hundreds of patients per week which shows you that he is a great doctor so before you leave a review take a look at the whole picture because you don't know what you have until you lose it thank you Dr gaziano for saving my life and being there for me. Robert S.
Yes today was my visit to see Dr gaziano and once again it was a great visit and I love seeing the man that saved my life and put me back on track now I've been reading some of the reviews and a lot of people need to sit back and look at the whole picture because you do not know what you have until you lose it Dr gaziano has hundreds of patients a week and a lot of these reviews you people are complaining about the wait time well like I said he has hundreds of patients a week okay and Dr gaziano by far is the best doctor I have ever had and I've had lots of doctors in my lifetime so like I said before you leave a review take a look at the whole picture because Dr gaziano is not doing what's best for him he's doing what's best for you thank you. Robert S.
Doctor Gaziano is an amazing doctor who really helps you with your issues and/or illness. He also does not make you nervous he is a very humble and easy to talk to person. I am so glad I have found this doctor.
Se preocupa mucho por como me siento y que no tenga dolor
Very professional! I highly recommend!
I would reccommend him to people who are fans of alternative medicine. He's very nice but he's just not my kind of doctor. He will definitely listen and address all of your concerns. The biggest downside is the amount of time you spend waiting.
I think he is a great doctor and I plan to have him as my regular doctor for a long time.
Wasn't good. He seemed to talk over me, and never even called in my medication.
Seriously one of the best doctors I've ever had the pleasure of knowing. Thank you for all you have done!
Knowledgeable, listened. In my book thats a good thing!
Dominic was a smart doctor, and the staff was pretty great. The waiting room was full of horrible meth-heads and annoying people with wild children running around, and smelled like a barn. He said he would call me with my blood test results but never bothered, and was very aggressive to get me back into the office even though I just went in for a physical. Their office lacks basic features like appointment reminders / notifications. I showed up 30 minutes early, but had to wait an hour and a half past my appointment to be seen. AVOID.
Dr. Gaziano was gentle and kind, and confident in his approach and provided a very peaceful, comfortable setting. He was empathetic to my injuries and needs and even spoke with me over the phone later the same day to follow up with some questions I had. I really enjoyed my visit with Dr. Gaziano. He seemed to be a genuine guy!
I think Dr. Gaziano and his assistants are amazing! They are always so nice and very helpful, I would defiantly recommend him to everyone. I have been going to him for a year now and I wouldn't trade him for anyone else! Thanks Doc!
Love dr. Gaziano he's always on top of all my health questions and issues. Never has he ever pointed my in the wrong direction. He's like the big brother I never had he got me back on my feet and back to good health in no time .
Doctor Gaziano is a good, helpful doctor, HOWEVER, once I left his office one thing after another went wrong. He took over a week to get my prescription sent to my pharmacy, and then when I went to pick it up it was the wrong dosage! I called several times, left messages on their voicemail and with the receptionist and NEVER received a call back! I ended up having to take the prescription with the incorrect dosage simply because I could not get in contact with the doctor. They're only response was to make another appointment. I will never go back to this doctor!!
Dr.Gaziano unit like any other doctor I've here seen he gives all he got to every patient, he deserves a a black or a model for how he treats his patients. Great I don't know what is do with out him And his secretary Joanna is great you'll never find another doctor like Dr.Gaziano and his team THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE Sincerely. First class USMC Robert.
I've had lots of doctors in my 38 years of life and dr. Gaziano is one of the best doctors I would say in the whole Chicagoland area he is a great doctor he has a great secretary he is polite I mean I would I would not want to go nowhere else then dr. Gaziano so I just wanted to say thank you dr. Gaziano for your service in other words you you saved my life when I had my operation thank you so much dr. Graziano for being there for me Robert spina
Dr. Gaziano was very pleasant, knowledgable and seemed genuinely interested in my issues. He's a nice guy with a unique approach to medicine, I'm glad to have established him as my primary care doctor. Only downside was that he was running a little late for my appointment, so I had to wait about 30 minutes past the initial appointment time.
Doctor Gaziano is honestly one of the best doctors I've ever been to. Not only is he super caring he is very friendly and understanding. I would definitely recommend him to anyone. Also his receptionist is always so nice as well.
This was my first visit - when you walk in there is no receptionist to greet you, her office is actually tucked away in a closet/office down the hall. They ONLY accept cash, didn't know this and had to take money out at the hospital ($3.00 charge). The wait time was horrendous, however, the others kept telling me that it typically wasn't this bad. If you need to have labs done, you have to leave the office and take an elevator up to the next floor. Dr. Gazino was very pleasant and professional though, I'll give it another shot.
A. I asked Dr. Gaziano to complete a routine form for my job and he initially refused. Only after en uncomfortable exchange did he agree to complete and fax the form to my employer. B. I still have not received the results of my lab work, eve after several calls to the office. C. I have received a bill from my insurance telling me that Dr. Gaziano is out of network, contrary to the ZOCDOC intake and something that the medical clerk at the office did not catch.
Dr. Gaziano was very pleasant, seemed interested in thoroughly addressing my concerns. Would absolutely recommend him to friends/family!
I seen Dr.Gaziano a couple of days ago and once again in and out this is not a joke i would label Dr.Gaziano and joann his lovely assistant Nurses Aide as one of the best doctors in Chicago Thanks again .and thaks to him im getting healthier and healthier Thank you.
Hello everyone my name is Robert USMC first class and in 2000 in Iraq I was shot twice and sent home with two purple hearts and now 14 years later were i was hit in the upper right shoulder they did all kinds of tests it was swollen bad the x- rays showed bits of shrapnel from the bullet and it was infected bad in my coller bone, my sternum, and two ribs needed surgery right away and that was the first time I met Dr.Gaziano and he got right to the point I'm young and I needed it I was just scared when I heard they had to cut out some bones. The name is osteomyelitis that's a bone infection and I had to have it done before it spread. So I put my trust in his hands and i'll admit it hurt bad but you want to know something Dr.Gaziano is now my primary Doctor and I was hooked on heroin also but today I have my one year sober coin and a sponsor, back then I was 150 pounds well now I'm 225 and healthy. I see Dr.Gaziano and his lovely secretary every month and every month I look forward to seeing them this is a true story every time I go and yes he has patients waiting that man works so hard so it might be a little waiting time but its well worth it Thank you Dr. Gaziano for saveing my life and I recommend him to anybody looking for a Doctor who cares about his patients as much as he does, sincerely Robert USMC first class.
So I have been seeing Dr. Gaziano for a while now. I met him through my brother which he saved his life and I have nothing bad to say about him. Not only is he an amazing Dr. he also makes me feel very comfortable and helps with everything I need help with. He talks me through my anxiety and is always super nice. Sometimes the wait is long but it is definitely worth it! His nurse Joanna is also such a sweetheart.
Dr Gaziano did prescribe me a good medicine that helped reduce my blood pressure, as well as some common sense advice on how to keep it down, but overall I didn't appreciate his lack of interest otherwise with my medical history and other issues.
I read about Dr. Gaziano before visiting him. I liked everything I read and looked forward to the appointment. Unfortunately, I had an awful experience. It didn't seem like Dr. Gaziano was very interested in the appointment; he seemed like it was beneath him and a waste of his time. He didn't listen very well to what I was saying and talked over me a couple times. The whole experience felt like a series of lectures on information that I already knew. It would have helped if he had asked me more questions such as what my work life is like in relationship to my health or what my actual diet is. Dr. Gaziano was also very insistent. He didn't actually ask me if I was ok with his treatments, the labs he wanted or with follow-up appointments. Rather, he told me what was going to happen in an incredibly condescending tone. I will not be seeing Dr. Gaziano again.
These reviews must be falsely inflated. This doctor did not listen to what I was saying. He rambled on about unrelated things, like how his sibling went to Harvard and he always felt pressured with high expectations. He wrote me a prescription for a controlled substance, which I explicitly stated that I did not want. He also mixed up the name of the medication, spelled it wrong, and could not explain the mechanism of action/how the medication works. I left the appointment and cried, and then found myself a new doctor that listens and is knowledgeable. I would not recommend this doctor for anyone I love or care about.
The visit to the doctor was clarifying and informative as well as the doctor had addressed all of the concerns.
Great staff! Strange office layout, but otherwise quite comfortable.
It was great. Everything ran smoothly.
Dr. Gaziano and Joanna are truly wonderful. Dr. G really listens to your concerns and gives you his honest, solid, medical opinion. I've been his patient for a few months but he is definitely the best doctor I've ever had (and I've been through a lot of doctors!). Joanna is always professional and kind, making you feel welcome when you walk in. Highly recommended clinic!!
I felt the doc showed real concern for my feelings .
Second visit, and he seemed rushed and didn't seem to remember me from 2 weeks prior. I also had to wait about 40 min again despite getting an appt. earlier in the morning. Good doctor, but the waiting and lack of appt. times outside of standard work hours are not great.
There was a bit of a wait (about 45 min), but he was very thorough and made me feel very at ease. He spent a good amount of time with me, and he explained his thought processes very well. He also gave me a necessary specialist referral and made sure I was on track with my general health-maintenance tests (i.e. suggested a lipid panel and the importance of an annual exam). Worth the wait and would definitely recommend.
Friendly and knows his stuff
Was looking for a GP in Chicago, and my visit with Dr. Gaziano went very smoothly. He informed me about his background, and completed an examination. After the exam, he scheduled another appointment for me to come back and follow-up. There was a bit of a wait, but once I was in the room it went quickly. Would recommend this Dr. to anyone looking for a GP in Chicago.
it was pretty fast. we went through things as expected I was grateful for the visit
Great doctor and the visit was very low stress which was good considering I hadn't been to see a doctor in about a decade. He is extremely personable, knowledgable, and makes recommendations based on your lifestyle, not just a one size fits all solution.
EVERYTHING WENT ON PRETTY MUCH SMOOTH
I have seen him a few times. Usually quick. Very friendly and easy to talk to
Very good doctor.
Doctor was interrupted 5 times during appointment. He interrupted me and made conclusions before listening to what I had to say. Miserable experience.
This is the second time I have seen this MD. He is very understanding and patient-- which is surprising, considering how busy he is. I had an appointment at an earlier time than I expected, leading to me showing up an hour late! I had written the appointment down wrong and still, the office saw me.
Pretty good! Impressed me with the formal introduction and practice history! Professional and explained everything to my understanding. I would recommend Dr. Gaziano, MD.
Very nice and helpful
Absolute pleasure dealing with Dr Gaziano- as well as his amazing staff! Seriously- best visit I've ever had- and I was a new patient who felt immediately comfortable. He took his time- genuinely cared- and exhausted all options to help a solution for a very nasty facial infection. It gives me new hope when I meet such a diverse- caring and energetic group of people that care not only about the treatment plan- but the human beneath it. Awesome awesome AWESOME!!!
Dr. Gaziano listened to all my concerns and gave helpful feedback based on current research and WHO standards. I appreciated the the time he spent gathering my symptoms, performing a physical and providing a diagnosis. I would recommend this doctor and will be visiting again. Thank you!
Over a two hour wait. If you're scheduling a visit over your lunch break or anytime you need more than 3 hours including travel time, look elsewhere.
Had a great experience, but had to wait a little longer than I wanted. Will still continue to use him as my primary care physician.
Receptionist needs to work on her people skills, doesn't make you feel very welcome. Maybe it was just a bad day. Doctor was great though, listened to what I had to say and I like that he didn't question me on what I thought was wrong.
Every person I dealt with was fantastic. Would definitely see again and recommend to others.
Waited 50 min, but he apologized for wait and made up for it with all of the time he spent with me. Only other complaint is the blood pressure cuff. They use a machine that left huge bruises on my arm.
very good doctor...very knowledable..seems to care about his patients...also very respectable foe a doctor who takes Medicaid also front desk worker is very kind and look good too....
I think he is wonderful. He works at a hospital so there may be times when he is late BUT I think it's worth it .
Quick and friendly. Answered all my questions and helped me with what I came there for
I was very pleased with the doctor. He seemed concerned with my well being.
Dr. Gaziano was great, but the wait was almost exactly 2 hours from when I checked in until I was called in. I would not recommend this place simply because of the wait time. If the are running that behind I would at least appreciate some notice up front.
Dr Dominic was simply amazing. Very easy to talk to, down to earth, understanding, and a problem solver. My mind is at a lot more ease than it was before I visited his office. Very professional. I HIGHLY Recommend
Highly recommend! He was amazing! He really listened and addressed all my concerns. After many doctors I have finally found a wonderful one!!
It was a good visit. Time management would need to be worked on because i did wait two hours. Thats the only complaint i have.
Pleasant, easy to talk to, and attentive. Long-ish wait (was expected after reading reviews) but otherwise very smooth visit.
Generally unhelpful; quick to dismiss concerns.
He was very friendly and knowledgeable. Very thorough with a high priority on prevention. We spent about 20 minutes discussing my health and getting to understand my biometrics and health habits. Only downside was that I had to wait about an hour after scheduled appointment time to see him. This didn't bother me as his priority is on the patients he's with and not getting people in and out quickly.
Long wait. Very helpful, genuine concern for me as a patient.
It was good. The office is a little dated with a unique mix of patients, but Dr. Gaziano was great.
Good doctor, seems knowledge, easy to talk to. Only gripe was that I had to wait over an hour and a half (1.5 hrs after my appointment time).
All in all it was good, I will use Dr. Gaziano as my primary care doctor going forward
It's not often anymore that a doctor takes the time to get to know you. Dr Gaziano made sure to spend at least ten minutes getting to know me and my history before starting any type of examination. I also really appreciate that he believes in a combination of eastern and western healing.
