Verified Patient Reviews
Very professional. Straight to the point and precise
Dr. Cabugason was awesome!! Highly recommend.
She really listened to my concerns and my need to coordinate care with other specialists. Really glad I chose her from all of the options on ZocDoc!
I came in to have my back checked out 4 weeks after falling down icy stairs, as I still had some pain when twisting. She determined this was due to muscle tightness, not spinal injury, and printed me out stretches she recommended I do. As always, I came with my list of 15 other questions and she was more than helpful in answering them all. I was seen exactly at my appointment time, no waiting. Parking easily available.
Parking was no problem, receptionist was very friendly and helpful. Very clean inside throughout. I had a 9:15 appt, and was called in at exactly 9:15. Nurse was also super friendly, personable and professional. Short wait to see Dr. Cabugason, also all of the above. She answered all of my questions thoroughly and asked me details so that she could provide the best response. Excellent visit, and highly recommended facility and staff.. thank you!
Amazing visit! Dr. Cabugason listened to all my health concerns. Very professional and would highly recommend!
quick but effective
The appointment was quick and personable! I haven't been to a general type doctor in over 15 years. I had to get some blood drawn and I've never been through the process so I was very nervous it was quick and painless !
Overall, she was informative, considerate, and personable. I felt comfortable talking with her and the staff. She did not recommend an unnecessary tests. In addition, the appointment was quick. Very much recommend!
Very nice and pleasant
Very professional and very helpful. I recommend Elaine to others looking for a nice and helpful doctor.
Dr. Cabugason is great! She’s very nice and didn’t make me feel rushed. My appointment was about 15 minutes after it was scheduled, but they were fairly busy, so it didn’t upset me. I would recommend!
Dr. Cabugason was so great! Extremely friendly, punctual and made me feel at ease and comfortable. After a ton of searching I have finally found a PCP in Chicago!
Dr. Cabugason was wonderful! I was in and out of the office in about an hour. The staff was very friendly as well.
Quick wait time. Dr answered questions and listened.
Doctor failed to introduce herself when first coming in the room which seemed really dismissive having never met her prior. She left the room to get a document from the printer which took her close to five minutes all the while I heard her small talking with another nurse. Seemed rather unprofessional.
She is super professional, and very care focused. Doctor Cabugason was expedient and detail oriented while addressing my concerns.
Was very pleased with the appointment. She didn't rush me, and the conversation was open. Her bedside manner was good. I would recommend!
The office staff was very friendly and professional. They greeted me promptly and my appointment was on time.
Easy and quick! Thought I might need a few appointments to take care of everything (e.g., I'm used to having my physical and bloodwork done on separate days), but was able to do it within about 25 minutes in 1 day.
The facility was clean, nicely decorated and the staff was friendly. I waited about 10minutes and my vitals were taken. Less than 5 minutes later the doctor came in. I didn't feel rushed and she genuinely listened to my concerns. I received a blood draw and it was quick/painless as well as a flu shot. Would highly recommend!
Dr. Cabugason spent enough time with me to get to a quick diagnosis and didn't order any unnecessary testing that would have been a waste of time and money. She was pleasant to speak with and got me on my way. The paperwork was already completed by zocdoc so it was one of the quickest trips to the doc i've ever had! Thanks.
She was very nice and professional.
Very friendly and professional :)
She's great and even though I see her once a year she remembers my issues and it's great I'm not always starting over
She was great. Very helpful.
Easy parking, quick check in. Friendly nurses and doctor. Efficient

Elaine is extremely friendly, patient, and answered all of my questions. She did not make me feel rushed or uncomfortable.
Really great service and very personable as well!! She and her staff were pleasant and knowledgeable. Will totally recommend!!
she was very nice and took care of everything. I had lots of questions pertaining to women's health and she did a great job - better than the advice of any other doctor I've had :) Also her reception staff noticed something was weird about my insurance and went out of their way to contact them and figure out that there had been a faxing error and that was really nice of them, I probably would've never caught that and would've been waiting forever to hear back.
Very polite, helpful, and quick. They didn't rush me listen to all that I had to say. I will definitely come back.
Dr. Cabugason is awesome, every time I go and see her she remembers me and my past illnesses. Couldn't recommend her more
Quick and simple! She answered all my questions and the my physical was a breeze!
Had a different doc see me but was okay overall.
She was amazing, and super fast. I felt very awkward and she made me feel comfortable. <3 And the appointment was fast and painless.
Very personable, knowledgeable and answered all my questions.
I was kind of expecting a rush-in, rush-out experience, but I was pleasantly surprised that Dr. Cabugason was exactly what I would want in a doctor. Intelligent, confident, efficient, and congenial. The appointment was quick, but too care of everything I needed, and I left feeling happy and healthy!
It was great. She is always professional and very kind
She is great!

Quick and easy new patient check in, nice modern waiting area, Dr. Cabugason was very friendly and knowledgeable.
Professional and helpful. Met expectations
The office visit was good overall however they had an issue drawing my blood which I have never had before and the asst whom was treating me had to reposition the needle resulting in a bruise and sore arm. I know this may be a once in a while. The doctor was very nice and professional and made me feel welcome.
DR ELAINE IS VERY FRIENDLY AND PATIENT...ADORE HER BEDSIDE MANNER,PLEASED SHE'S MY DOCTOR...STAFF WAS EFFICIENT :)

Office was nice and new. My wait time was less than a minute. Very quick service.
Very nice and professional!
She was wonderful - very kind, listens well, and knowledgeable. Great experience and excellent service, all around.
The waiting room was clean and comfortable. I hardly had any wait before being taken back from my pre check with the nurse and nurse practioner. The staff was friendly and very thorough. I am someone who does not enjoy any sort of doctors visit, and the staff was very warm and made me feel safe and well taken care of during my visit. I needed blood work done and they helped me through my fear of needles with a quick and painless blood draw. I plan to recommend this office to any of my friends who are in need of a general medical doctor!
I was seen early here! The staff was super friendly and Elaine was very nice. I felt like everyone listened to me and asked me important questions. Additionally, whoever did my blood draw and flu shot is a master. I hate needles and this woman made it quick and painless.
She is warm and professional
She's super professional and gave me the right treatment. I will definitely be back and highly recommend her.
Staff and Dr. Elaine have always been helpful and easy to talk to. I continue to go back to them time and time again!
I did not enjoy the visit. She was not very personable.
Truly fantastic experience. Everyone was extremely kind and welcoming, and the exam was painless and helpful.
Quick and easy. Went for annual psychical
Doctor Cabugason was great. She was very kind and soft spoken, which made me feel very comfortable throughout my visit. She seemed knowledgeable and had great suggestions for my concerns. I would definitely go back to see her again.
Very nice. Office was clean and staff was very nice. Dr. Cabugason was very thorough and professional. Answered and addressed all my questions.
Super quick and really helpful! Dr. Cabugason was easy to talk to and all staff was friendly and accommodating. I would be happy to see this doctor again.
Everything went well, except that the office didn't seem to get my medical info from the Zocdoc and I had to fill all the information all over again.
I cannot say enough good things about Dr Cabugason and the staff at Innovative Express Care. I always dreaded going to the doctor until I started going here. I have been to this facility multiple times and the staff is always incredibly friendly and helpful. Dr Cabugason is very personable and takes her time to explain everything to me and I will definitely see her again next time I need an appointment.
This was just the initial appointment as anew patient. Quick but professional and coirteous.
Professional and knowledgeable. She checked to make sure medications were covered under my insurance before prescribing. I've never had a doctor do that.
Dr Cabugason was very friendly and kind. She has a great bedside manner and was willing to talk about options for treatment without seeming rushed or impatient.
Tried canceling appoin
Doctor and Nurse were great, efficient and to the point. I do feel like the walls are kind of thin and the provider's station is right outside the exam rooms so, I could kind of hear their conversations and I am sure others could hear theirs (about patients) too. The bathrooms weren't super clean. But, other I would go back to see the Doctor.
Dr. Cabugason was great! she took the time to fully hear out my issues, gave me some good advice and was great at explaining my next steps. I was pleased with the office and professionalism of the staff.
Very, very friendly. Very much intelligent and informative about my needs.
She was very thorough and calm which helped the appointment go by quickly. Would definitely recommend!
Nice new office, great technology (I was able to pay my co-pay from my seat, easy parking. Elaine and her student were thorough and caring. I am going to continue going to Elaine as my primary care doctor!
Quick, helpful, straight forward, and very polite. great experience. look forward to keeping her as my doctor for the future.
She's personable, listens, and is a quick study. I felt like I was in great hands.
Dr Elaine Cabugason was great. Answered all my questions and has a great bedside manner. Will definitely eturn
Clean, new office space. Efficient and knowledgable nurse took my vitals. The doctor was nice and no-nonsense: decided what she was going to do and executed it. I ended up getting a pap smear in the office; it was as quick and painless as those things can be.
Great doctor, very nice. Good new clinic that seems to handle a high volume of patients effectively. Would return.
Very friendly, war, and attentive.
She was very nice and attentive. Need to request generic prescriptions if you want them.
Very good experience. Dr. Cabugason and everyone at Innovative Express Care is very nice and pleasant. The office is new and in great condition.
Fast, easy, professional, attentive. If you can't find a doctor, or hate searching for one...just go see Elaine. She is young, smart and quick to diagnose without rushing you along.
She is absolutely WONDERFUL. I am very wary when it comes to going to the doctor, (i've had some bad experiences), but I saw Dr. Elaine's outstanding eviews and made the appointment. She is courteous, kind, and professional.
The office seems new but in that kind of cheap/ quickly constructed way- even with the door shut to my room I could clearly hear conversations in the room next to mine and in the hallway. Not comfortable. I went for a physical and no one asked me about my physical activity or weighed or measured me. I can see this office being fine for something quick but I wasn't impressed with the actual health part. Receptionist was nice and I do appreciate that I could go after work... but I don't think I will go back.
After developing painful swallowing, I googled my symptoms and decided I most likely had Strep Throat. I still haven't found a regular doctor after living in Chicago for 4 years, so I made the trip from the South Loop to this location and found it was worth it. They had same-day availability for me and took my insurance, which is the main reason I chose them. The interior is very modern and comfortable and my swab results came back almost immediately as positive for Strep (no surprise!). I was able to get my meds filled at the office for a small fee and went straight home. I loved being able to do this instead of taking a trip to the local pharmacy when I already feel like death. I wish they were closer to where I actually live so I could return again.
good and quick
Great, knowledgable Doctor, efficient and kind!!
Overall good. I did not receive documentation of what vaccinations I received, however. I am not sure how to contact my doctor to receive that.
She was super nice and listened to everything I said. I went in for an annual to get some prescriptions renewed and she did not hesitate in re-prescribing them even though she was not the original doctor who prescribed them. The office is sort of strange since it is also an urgent care but over all it was a great experience. I will be back.
Really enjoyed the new doctor. The ladies that worked there did everything in their power to get all clients get their paperwork done and into a room quickly for the doctor.
Clean, up to date office with e-paperwork and efficient nurses and wait times. I will be coming back.
Loved her! Took time to talk through issue and read over report that I had. Even helped me find a pediatrician for my son since I'm new to town. Will be back.
Felt very comfortable!
Very nicedoctor very nice office
The entire office operated very efficiently and was very friendly.
Dr. Cabugason was amazing! She was very friendly, she listens, and she addresses all of your concerns. I highly recommend her!
very willing to take the time and talk through all of my questions. does a great job making me feel at ease even when discussing difficult topics. I will be continuing to use Dr. Cabugason.
I went in for a simple annual physical, so to be honest its pretty hard to screw it up. That being said, Dr. Cabugason was quick and friendly. Her bedside manner seemed great! The nurse who helped out was also friendly and knew what she was doing. Drawing blood was almost painless. Thanks. I would go back. The office was nice and clean. Though I did not drink any, they have a Keurig machine in the waiting area. Completely electronic check in process! Wow. Almost no wait.
Very friendly! Offered options.
I really enjoyed seeing Dr. Cabugason. She is so kind and helpful. I felt very comfortable talking with her. The staff and nurses in the office are wonderful too!
She is so nice and very wonderful to talk to! She's young and really understanding.
I saw one of her assistant! Very good, I would recommend !!!
I went into the office because of a skin rash that I've had for some time now. Every staff member that I interacted with was very pleasant and polite. When I saw the doctor he did not seem rushed, he was very engaged and wanted to help. Although he ended up referring me to a dermatologists (after prescribing me some meds to help with the symptoms) I would still say it was a very positive experience. Would recommend to others.
The person I did see was great. But, I didn't actually see Elaine Cabugason, who is who I thought I booked with according to the website. I don't have any complaints with the care I received- but that might be something I might have had a problem with if that is who I really wanted to see.
She was great! Easy to talk to, listened to my concerns and answered all my questions! I would recommend her to my friends and family!
Not bad beside waiting An hour to see the doctor.
I waited in the exam room a long time before she came in and called me by the wrong name. She said she would be right back. A male doctor came in and apologized for the wait and asked if I wanted to wait longer or have him see me. I chose to have him. He was smart and friendly but not who I came to see. I then had a pap smear done by her. She was very flustered and told me it was her first day. After performing the pap smear, she left and then came back in as I was getting dressed and told me I could put my clothes on. Very unprofessional. I won't be back.
Really efficient and knowledgable. They dedicated a lot of time to investigate my issues and address them thoroughly.
I initially was dreading going out in the cold but the doctor and staff were really sweet. The office was also very nice on the inside and a swanky hangout spot :) I'm definitely glad I found such a great pcp.
Truly a fantastic practice. The kindest, most through, and best medical experience I've ever had.
