First visit to Emelita's office. Had a good experience, was treated respectfully, all issues I wanted to talk about were addressed. I was a little worried going in because I had the last appointment of the day. It's just human natureto be tried and want to go home at that point, but Emelita did not indicate that at all. She gave me her full attention and professionalism.

Dr. Emelita went above and beyond in treating me. I've actually never experienced that level of friendly and thorough in a doctor before. I came in for a re-fill and to seek counsel on a new medication for an old issueand she really listened to me. She even did a mole check and a general health exam since i have sinus issues. She was extremely friendly as well and conversed with me on a few life topics. I was looking for a primary doctor since moving to Illinois, and I found a great one. There was a lot of forms to fill out in the beginning but i was seen right away. allow extra time to fill them out if you are a new patient.

Was not informed I had prescriptions filled until looking on patient portal. I was not aware she was finished examining me until the MA got me. Didn't say we're done or bye or follow up.

I appreciate talking with a doctor who speaks plainly and doesn't need to sugarcoat what might be causing my medical concerns. Dr. Co listened, asked pertinent questions, and helped me get started on the things I needed to accomplish. Everyperson in her office was friendly, and seemed interested in providing me with the information I needed in order to make an informed decision about my options. I would recommend Dr. Co to anyone looking for a primary care physician.

Our visits with Dr. Co are always informative and she makes us feel comfortable. We never wait more than 20 minutes to see her. She was open and honest with all of our questions and very focused on our appointments. We definitely will continue to see Dr. Co.

She was extremely unprofessional and disturbing. As I was waiting to be examined she started asking what I thought about Obama and telling me how she disagreed with him forcing healthcare practitioners to support murder through abortionsand contraception. She then proceeded to tell me how she has convinced patients to not have abortions. It was completely jarring to experience this while I was sitting there in stirrups and I felt very vulnerable.

The Doctor was very nice and personable, however, when I go to the Doctor for contraception (I needed a refill for my birthcontrol) I don't appreciate being given a lecture about how I need to have kids, or a period, orto take a break from birth control. I'm an adult and am more than able to make my own decisions especially when it comes to something that involves a lifetime commitment and a significant personal and financial investment. She did end up writing me the perscription, but I am hesitant to go back there. I don't think that her personal views and mine will align well.

She didnt give me all the treatment options because of her personal religious beliefs. While I share her beliefs, I was coming to her medical opinion not spiritual beliefs.
