Very personable, friendly and professional. Her bedside manner is fabulous. She addressed all my concerns in a very timely fashion and yet managed to appear un-rushed. Highly recommend.

My first visit with Dr. Hylek was my "annual" physical, and we also spoke about recent health concerns I have/had.

Did not do a complete physical. Only paps were done. I need to start over and schedule a REAL physical with someone else today. Will not recommend.

Very comfortable visit. I felt like I could be very honest and upfront with her, and she was the same with me, in a very friendly tone. Highly recommended...especially if you have an "embarrassing" issue that is "awkward" to talk about.

It was definitely a bit rushed due to my being late and the ZocDoc online checkin not working properly. Other than that, Dr. Hylek was very personable and addressed most of my concerns.

I went in for an annual physical and after a bit of waiting in the waiting room, I was seen by a PA or a nurse who took my vitals and measurements. A short while later I was seen by Dr.Hylek who was friendly, professional, and enjoyed getting to know me as a patient. After health questions she did a basic exam and then sent me down for blood work. It was a pleasant experience meeting Dr. Hylek.

Needed to find a primary care doctor to write my prescription and I received so much more. I met a doctor that actually cares for her patients and takes her time to listen to their needs.

The doctor was not responsive to my condition or questions and acted as if my issue was something that I shouldn't have come in for at all. Wen I explained that I was in significant pain she just brushed it off.The referral she ended up giving me was to see a general surgeon but she just put my name into a queue instead of referring to an actual doctor and told me to call if I don't receive anything in the mail. Total waste of a visit and copay.
