Verified Patient Reviews
Very knowledgeable. Exactly what I was looking for.
In this world where Western medicine provides (if you're lucky) an average of 10 -15 minutes face-to-face time with your actual physician, Dr. Linder is a breath of humanity and kindness. Her patients benefit from her own brand of True Physician Care. Visits with Dr Linder are never rushed. As a patient, I feel Dr. Lindner listens and hears my concerns. Dr. Lindner looks for the root of the problem rather than masking the concern with other doctors' common approach of a pill for an ill. I would recommend Dr. Emily Linder without hesitation. Thank you, Dr. Linder!
I thought Emily was great! She spent a lot of time with me and evaluated me as a whole person, not just for the ailments I am currently dealing with. She had some great ideas on things to try involving diet, supplements and alternative treatments to western medicine.
She’s a seasoned professional, with a unique and invested approach to working with patients.
I love Dr. Lindner. I first met her through my yoga teacher when I was faced with a breast cancer diagnosis in 2009 she has been part of my family's care team ever since
I am exceedingly grateful for Dr. Lindner. She is a truly gifted and passionate doctor committed to my optimal health of body, mind and spirit. I highly recommend Dr. Emily Lindner.
Just a gem of a doctor. She represents what medicine should be.
Very warm and took her time to get to know me. Gave very helpful advice and direction to help alleviate my symptoms.
The thing I like about Dr Lindner is that she takes time with you - doesn't rush in and out. We discuss different options.
Dr. Lindner is such a highly professional and caring doctor. I went to my appointment thinking that everything was wrong with me and needed to be fixed and she was able to help me implement some small changes that will make a big difference in my life. I highly recommend Dr. Lindner for her bedside manner and extensive background and experience in all areas of health care.
Unprofessional. Although she gave good nutritional tips and the appointment seemed to have been okay for the 1st 30 minutes of my visit, but after that she went on her personal political views that lasted 15 minutes for which I'm sure she charged me for in her consultation fee. I thought it was interesting how she would get upset if she doesn't get lab results right away from a previous doctor but she ended up leaving me hanging concerning the lab results that she ordered for me. I kept calling and leaving messages on her voicemail with her to return my call but she kept ignoring them. I'm glad that I am able to pull up my results myself so that I can go to a different doctor to give me feedback on the blood tests that she ordered and interpret my results without me having to google what my abnormal blood result tests mean.
I sought out Dr. Lindner because I was looking for a new primary physician, and I wanted someone a little more holistic. I was also sick with some sort of sinus infection/sore throat. I arrived for my appointment and was asked what brought me in. When I mentioned I was sick she immediately made me put on a mask, and put one on herself. She asked what my symptoms were (sore throat, head/sinus pain, congestion), but NEVER checked me out - didn't look in my ears/nose/throat or feel any lymph nodes. She just immediately stated I had the flu. She then discussed ways in which I can PREVENT from getting sick - which I definitely appreciate, but it was a little late for that. She gave me list of holistic options to try for flu. I ended up going to an urgent care afterward, because I really thought I needed antibiotics (I did not feel like I had the flu). We also discussed a few other issues I'm having - pain in my hip as well as a painful cyst in my wrist. She said she would get the name of a hand/wrist doctor and send it to me. My appointment was last Tuesday and I still have not heard from her with the reference. In my opinion, this is extremely unprofessional, and I will not be returning.
Always pleasant to visit with Emily and go over healthy options for my life.
I've seen Dr. Lindner in the past and her advice is always helpful and honest. She takes the time to answer my questions and concerns in a thorough way.
I confirmed ahead of time that Dr. Lindner treated the type of issue that I needed to be seen about yet she spent the majority of the session basically trying to come up with all of the reasons that I don't have the issues that I know I have (ongoing parasite issue). In fact, never did address or come up with possible interventions. Instead of listening to me, she continued to try to fit me into her idea of treatment- for instance, she wanted to talk way more about past trauma and vitamin D3 levels than parasite treatment. She even tried to tell me that what are my food allergies, are not allergies but "sensitivities' making lots of assumptions about what kind of testing I had done. Guess what? they are allergies! Had 'em since I was a kid. Also didn't believe that digestive enzyme supplements cause me digestive issues that includes sharp pain because I guess digestive enzymes are "so great." Asked her to write a prescription for parasite medicine so I could at least get something out of my appt but then was never available to answer the pharamcy's call about substitutions. Unprofessional, aggravating and disappointing.
I was very satisfied. I've been seeing Dr. Lindner for a long time and I trust her judgment.
Dr. Lindner was wonderful! Finally a compassionate doctor who listens and cares. Only wish I would have found her years ago!
I am grateful to being seeing such a brilliant, compassionate, intuitive, knowledgeable doctor. Dr. Lindner is one of a kind!
I love they fact that Dr Lindner asked me about coding my blood work under Wellness NO other doctor has ever asked. She answered my questions and was very interested in my concerns.
This is the first MD I have ever met that takes a holistic approach. Emily actually took the time to get to know me and what what was going on in order to assess the source of the problems. Finally!
Dr Lindner is fantastic, she is a true healer.
Dr. Emily is very thorough in her consultation. I found her to be knowledgeable, respectful, kind and caring.
She took the time and care to really evaluate what my symptoms were and what the possible underlying causes might be. She is extremely knowledgeable and very holistic about the mind/body connection/ relationship.
I always appreciate Dr. Lindner's expertise and compassion. She has been my Internist for a long time and I have recommended other friends and acquaintances to her. She herself practices what she preaches!
Very intuitive with lots of specific recommendations to help my son.
Dr. Lindner is amazing! I have known her for 15 years she knows everything about me. I am very comfortable with her and can trust her enough to tell anything.
It is always a pleasure seeing Dr.Lindner. She is insightful, creative, and very professional.
Always informative and helpful.
Just in the first visit with Dr. Emily Lindner, I already saw a huge improvement in my mental and physical health. Within 30 minutes of my visit, she and I were already practicing methods to heal and cope with my PTSD. Highly recommend her to any family and friends.
Dr. Lindner walked me through the results of my blood work and took the time to thoroughly explain the meaning of each test that was run and the result! I have never experienced a doctor who had the patience and took the time to do this! Thank you so much!
Among the best of the integrative phisicians that I have been to. Great choice for persons needing assistance getting their thyriod and/or autoimmune condition in balance. And she takes insurance!
I have been seeing Dr.Emily Lindner on occasions when I need to speak to her about my general health, get a second opinion, get another view from a more holistic perspective. She is very professional and knowledge and will go over all your health details with you and discuss alternatives. I think that it is very important as we all get older to look at ways in which we can get stronger and live the best life possible without serous health set backs and Dr. Emily can help you assess your options or discuss any concerns with your current medication or treatment. She is frank and to the point and well worth an appointment as is evident by many of us who have "visited" her for numerous years. Whenever any of my friends have a concern , the question is " Have you seen Dr.Emily?"
I've seen Dr. Lindner in the past and she did a wonderful job to improve my health, that's why I came back to see her this time for different health issues. I trust she will help me to go on the right path to take care of my present issues.
She is the greatest, love every session I have with her.
She was amazing. I appreciated the calm approach and the break down with pictures and taking the time to get to know me through the appointment too. Greatly appreciated her!
Dr Lindner is a good listener, and is completely dedicated to hearing my issues and building a plan for good health.
Dr. Lindner is always knowledgeable and compassionate -- I highly recommend her.
It had been some time since I had seen Dr. Lindner but she quickly identified my main issue. She was compassionate and her advice was just what I needed. I left in a better state, and she gave me tools which can use again.
My first visit really didn't seem like a first visit. Dr. Lindner was very warm and calming. I was very relaxed. I felt like I had been coming to her for a long time. She was knowledgeable and helped me to understand a lot about myself and my concerns. Thank you so much.
Dr. Emily Lindner is very warm and welcoming. Once you walk in her office you feel a sense of spirituality and she makes you feel at ease. She takes her time to go over all your health concerns and your goals. She wrote up a daily meal plan for me and also a self coping plan that I will follow on a daily basis to prepare for my pre op surgery. I left her office feeling very optimistic and with her guidance to a path of new healings!!! And she has a very adorable dog the sweetest.
My visit was very informative. I learned how to begin to address an issue from a wholistic approach or integratively. Dr. Linder was very easy talk to and helped me connect the dots on eating and mindfulness. Thank you!
Dr Lindner spent an hour with me discussing my health and developing a plan for me going forward. This was the first time in my life that an MD that I was designating my primary care physician spent that much time talking with me about my life and my health. What a breath of fresh air!
Very pleased with Dr Lindner's orientation and approach. Multi disciplinary background allows for treatment of whole person and not just the symptoms.
Wonderful. I love Dr Lindner. I've been seeing her 10 years. She's so wise and resourceful.
I always appreciate the time that Dr. Lindner takes with me, as well as her holistic approach to care. I have had some thyroid issues and, working with Dr. Lindner, I started to understand the importance of supplements and was also able to make the switch over to natural thyroid medicine, which has significantly increased my well-being. I definitely recommend Dr. Lindner to those looking for a physician with a holistic, integrative approach to treating the whole person.
Dr. Lindner is the doctor I've been hoping to find for a long time. I'm extremely grateful to have found such a widely knowledgeable and caring physician who is concerned about and treats my whole person. Her beautiful therapy dog Katie is incredibly loving and her office is uncommonly comforting and welcoming. I've had no trouble finding parking near her office or walking from the train station.
I always appreciate Dr. Lindner's input and options.
Initially I really enjoyed my first visit to Dr. Lindners office. She was very attentive and I did not feel rushed. I have an issue with my knee and we decided I should go get an X-Ray. I received the X-Rays on Saturday. They told me to call her office Monday as she should have the results by then. Dr. Lindner and I had been communicating previously by text as she does not have a receptionist so I decided to text her Monday and wait for a response when she had some time. No response. I texted her again Tuesday asking for the results of my X-Ray and still no response and it is now Thursday. I am very disappointed because I thought I had found a great Doctor in my new neighborhood (just moved to LP this month). My knee problem is very painful and I would really like to know what is going on with it but because she has been ignoring me I now have to find a new doctor and have my results sent over from the hospital. Which is just prolonging resolving this knee issue. She never mentioned a vacation or that she would be switching numbers.. (all of the texts said delivered via iMessage). She literally told me to keep in touch over the next week and update her on my knee problem and to talk about the results. I just find all of this ridiculous..... it takes just a few minutes to call or text back a patient or even request a follow up visit to discuss the X-Rays. I will not be going back and I do not recommend Dr. Lindner to anyone.
Reviewing info from another Doctor.
Very thorough and caring. Her range of experience is a definite plus. I've only had a new patient appointment with her, but I was seen at my appointment time (no waiting.)
I was in her office about 45 mins before my appointment. Once the appointment time came she saw me straight away.
Dr. Lindner was awesome. Very intelligent and informative. Highly recommended.
Very informative great doctor made me feel less white coat stressed
What I really liked: the office is less an office and more cozy/homey. Think yoga studio not clinical laboratory. No white-coats. Also her therapy dog Katie is a nice touch. You're either a dog person or you aren't. If you are, you'll love Katie.
Emily is an excellent doctor, trained in both Eastern and Western, and very knowledgeable about both. Highly recommended.
My visit with Dr Lindner was very productive. She answered all of my questions and recommended treatment which is very satisfactory to me.
I was blown away with her breadth of knowledge and her ability to connect the dots in making a diagnosis. I felt totally relaxed in the office. My son has seen Dr. Lindner in the past and she'd be the one to help me. I came away feeling renewed. Her caring manner was genuine. I wish everyone could experience her presence and expertise.
Dr. Lindner is such a highly skilled, patient and empathetic doctor and I love how she combines both traditional and more holistic medicine to help her patients. Her office is so peaceful and welcoming. I have complete confidence and her abilities and trust. I highly recommend Dr. Lindner.
I have had two visits with Dr. Linder, and would definitely recommend her!
Dr Lindner is very patient and kind. She listens to what you have to say, your worries and gives thoughtful feedback and advice. Her therapy dog is also so sweet!
I always appreciate Dr. Lindner's knowledge of a variety of healing models.
Great first visit!
Amazing doctor! We absolutely love her....she's the best! !!
She is fantastic! Very knowledgeable on nutrition.
i was very impressed by her!
My experience was great! I know she will be instrumental in helping me be my best and healthiest self!
Love Dr. Lindner. She is the truest " integrative" doctor I've ever experienced. She has a warm, but no nonsense bedside manner and I never leave without a whole new field of knowledge.
Dr Lindner is compassionate, extremely knowledgeable in multiple modalities of medicine and understanding what makes the human body respond the way it does. She is practical and wise in her approach and every minute spent with her is a gift. We should all be so lucky if the face of medicine looked like dr lindner.
I actually only waited for a few minutes. Once we began, I received the doctor's full attention to my needs, without interruption, as well as specific information on how best to continue my health-building process. This was a very helpful visit.
Dr. Linder is always amazing! Spends as much time with Her patients as they need. Gives excellent care and therapeutic advice for physical and soul!
Dr Linder is one of the best physicians in the Chicagoland area. I am so lucky to have FINALLY found a doctor who has it together and does not believe in pushing pills or rotating through patients like cattle. Absolute Godsend!
Fantastic visit. More comprehensive and helpful than expected. I fell that this is one step in gaining better health.
Excellent first meeting resulting in preliminary logical next steps Dr. Lindner wants to take on a path that will hopefully lead to getting my autoimmune disease into remission. Her comments and advice are consistent with what I have read in popular books in this area but as a board certified doctor in functional medicine she can tie the disparate 'clues' together in a sophisticated way so we can continue the preliminary improvements I have made on my own. Excellent interpersonal skills and calming personality. Looking forward to my next appointment.
She's the most caring, wonderful, intuitive MD. Generous. Insightful. Brings so much to her work. A healer who is aware of multiple modalities & points of view
She connects with you at the human level. She takes time to know you.
Great as always....
I enjoyed my meeting with Dr. Emily Lindner. She is knowledgeable, helpful, and stays on topic, regardless of my on-going rambling. I am looking forward to working with her, following her recommendations and improving my health.
I always feel better after I leave Dr Lindner's office ... She is awesome
Best doctor ever. Talks to you, helps you, spends time with you. Love love love her. Wish all doctors were as good as her!!
I really liked her approach to wellness and equally enjoyed speaking with her about life.
Love Dr. Lindner!!
One of the best doctors I have ever met. Probably woukd rank top ten in the entire country. However be prepared to become a co particpant in your health. You have to be open to change and healing to experience Dr. Linders full healing potential.
I had a wonderful experience. Dr. Linder gave me a deeper understanding of the many factors that affect my health, taking the time to explain her suggestions carefully. I am looking forward to continuing my journey to better health with her.
Amazing Doctor; the best one I've had so far.
I feel very fortunate to have been referred to Dr. Emily by a co-worker. She is the most thorough and caring physician I have ever met. Dr Emily is a true healer and I appreciate her holistic approach to health and well being.
Dr Linder is an amazing and different type of doctor in todays fast paced world. She is smart, caring, knowledgeable and does not over prescribe meds. She LISTENS and OBSERVES very closely as to what your issues are, and will design the proper treatment and protocols accordingly. Dr Linder is a master of Integrative or complementary medicine. She blends the best of western with a default and understanding that our bodies have a natural wisdom to heal. She helps her patients heal and learn how to be and stay healthy. I highly recommend her!
She is amazing! I felt so uplifted and had a very strong mental attitude that I have never gotten from any other doctor regarding my health issue. Thanks Dr. Lindner!
Dr. Lindner really listens and gives reasons and explanations of what is happening in my body; she gives reassurance and hope for a resolution to my problems.
She took the time and really listened, asking really important questions, even sharing some of her own story.
Dr. Emily listened to everything and probed deeply to find the connections and foundation issues for my symptoms. She gave me actionable items to support my health/healing and explained how, together, we would progress from that point.
Dr Lindner is the best. She really takes the time to talk to you and to look at the you as a whole, not just symptoms.
Finally what a doctor should be! Holistic health care at its' best.
Wonderful, caring doctor. Listens well, and understands integrative medicine.
Very caring and understanding. I drove over a hour to see her and it was totally worth it!
She's great. I went with the reviews of other patients and they were right....she's amazing.
I always appreciate the care I receive from Emily Lindner MD.
She's wonderful. Very soothing and supportive
It was my first visit and her advice seems to be working. I am looking forward to working with her to try and aliviate some of my health issues.
Very knowledgeable and very caring!
I am thankful to learn new ways to managing my health. The implementation of the vitamins and supplements is vital.
Dr. Lindner is excellent. I only wish I could see her more often, but her location is inconvenient because of where I work. I've seen Emily for years and she has always offered caring and loving attention to her patients. And she has a noble assistant: a wellness dog.
Dr. Lindner is wonderful. She takes time to know you and listen. She is smart thoughtful and knowledgeable. Dr. Lindner is so good at explaining what is going on and options for treatment. I highly recommend her.
Interested caring kind Somewhat complicated Offers aloft of hope
Best doctor ever! I can't thank her enough for all the help and guidance .......and restoring my health!!!!
DR. Lindner is an amazing Dr. I have found great success with her. I enjoy her calm and relaxed environment and her wealth of knowledge. I always feel reassured and confident leaving her office that my health is in great hands.
Dr. Lindner listened carefully to my concerns and worked with me to develop a clear plan to address them. It was a great visit!
Yes, very much! She was very helpful.
Emily Lindner is a wonderful doctor who is everything I have been looking for in a physician for the last 10 years in Chicago. She incorporates physical, emotional, and mental well-being into her practice and in this sense has a truly wholistic approach to health. Dr. Lindner offers practical and completely doable suggestions with regards to all of those areas as well, and she does so compassionately, thoughtfully, and respectfully. It is so refreshing to be seeing a doctor who cares about connecting with her patients and truly understanding where they are coming from and the little and big details that make up their life and affect their overall health.
Dr. Lindner is an exceptional practitioner. She is thorough and has an ability to put patients at ease. I highly recommend her.
I've never felt so comfortable at a doctor's office! She was thorough and personable and extremely knowledgable. I will be seeing her many times in the future!
Dr. Linder is brilliant, amazingly insightful, she takes the time to listen, and truly cares for the health and well-being of her patients. She is the best doctor I have ever had and has a wonderful way of treating the whole person. For example, she takes into account the mental and social factors rather than just the symptoms of disease and provides you with innovative, viable, and alternative solutions (addressing the root causes) rather than just prescribing drugs.
She is a wonderful, very knowledgeable and compassionate practitioner.
She took the time to explain what's going on in my body and ways to heal it. She has a very calming effect. She treated me with respect.
This was my first appointment with Dr. Lindner. I greatly appreciated the time she took to get to know me personally during this initial consultation. As we talked, I felt she was fully present with me and not rushing through the process to get to her next patient, as I have felt with other doctors in the past. She genuinely listened to learn more about all of me, not just to hear the opportunity for a quick fix to a symptom. As I value the mind-body-spirit connection, her expertise as both an MD and someone who values other wellness modalities resonated with me. Her highly personal approach, her cozy office and the simple offer of tea or water when we went in to sit in her warm space was lovely.
She's always amazing
Emily is truly a gift to Chicago. She is a healer in every sense of the word and embodies what a strong inspired empowered and healthy female looks like. Every time I leave her office, I am inspired with more knowledge about my body, my health, and the whole big picture. Her intuition, mixed with her ability to explain concepts and also use tools from almost every healing modality shows her vast intelligence and hunger for learning. She holds the body as a self healing organism, instead of one to push into submission. However, she understands the value of being able to use prescriptions and drugs with the intent to help your body be as healthy as it can on its own. She holds the patient as the expert of their life and provides information while also allowing the patient to be honest about feedback and what is going on with their body. She has done her own healing work and is incredibly in touch with her own humanity as well as yours and she uses both to help you understand how you can better optimize your health. I have unique medical problems and went to about 14 doctors before I saw Emily. Emily is the only doctor I have found that speaks my language and is truly an advocate for my best interests. Words cannot describe how meaningful my experience with Dr. Lindner has been. She has been a huge blessing on my journey back to health and to have found a doctor who is as brilliant, intuitive and down to earth as she is (and who takes insurance) almost feels too good to be true. I cannot say enough about how much I admire Emily and what she embodies. Truly an inspiring doctor who is way ahead of the curve.
I was so relieved that she was exactly the kind if medical professional who truly cares about their patients. Just as all her reviews, she is the kindest, most compassionate, and very knowledgeable on a wide array of medical conditions. One of the best Doctors I have come across and I am so glad I found her.
Wise healer, deep knowledge, supportive demeanor
Dr Lindner provides a well balanced approach with consideration for the whole .... body, mind and spirit. She utilizes both new and advancing areas of medicine as well as conventional. But ... most important to me is her ability to communicate, to ask the questions that help determine our path forward. I have a better ability to look at my long term health and feel more confident in my ability to effect it. I highy reccomend Dr. Lindner.
She is my kind of a doctor.
Dr. Lindner is very professional, personal and extremely up on her game. Her knowledge goes beyond most. Dr. Linder is able to find the source of an issue where others will simply settle for treating it. Her standards are hard to beat. She listens.
Dr. Lindner was very knowledgable and felt like someone you could sit and talk with for hours. Her office space was comfortable; that, along with her dog, contributed to a relaxed atmosphere. We met for an hour. She listened and provided great recommendations to guide me with a food detox. I will definitely return for a follow up visit.
Best doctor I have ever seen! Knowledgeable, personable, and professional!
The process of making an appointment and working through prior to my visit whether Dr. Lindner was covered was great, Dr. Lindner and her accounting group were very helpful. The actual appointment was also very good. My only hesitation was I received a call when my labs were in, which I subsequently returned the call, and never heard back from Dr. Lindner on the results of the labs.
A great holistic consultation. I learned much more than what I initially came there for and am looking forward to continuing to see her.
She was amazing and professional the whole time. I am so glad that I found her!
Fantastic. A really thorough sit down and review of test results. With a thoughtful game plan on how to proceed. I am very pleased to have found Dr. Lindner.
Dr Lindner is an amazing, well rounded Doctor that I would highly recommend! Renee J
Emily is brilliant. I have been seeing her for years, and she always has a fresh perspective not only on physical health but the mental well being of her patients. Highly recommended.
I have been seeing Dr. Lindner for 10 years and she has been a great source of information regarding nutrition, exercise, meditation. She really listens to the patient and follows with thoughtful advice. She has brought me back to life (after bouts with adrenal fatigue) time and time again. The perfect mix of East-West and common sense. A contemporary doctor for our times.
Very excited about working with her.
Dr. Lindner was kind, compassionate and wise. Im grateful that she helped me, and look forward to seeing her again. She had many books on her shelf from practitioners that I follow and respect, so that told me that we are on the same page before I even went in for the appointment.
She was very thorough with things I need to work on. The health tip was very helpful, she will be great with someone who has mental issues or depression and need to talk about it.
Dr. Lindner is compassionate, thinks outside the box, and is an amazing find.
Very happy with my appointment. She appears to have a sincere interest in helping me achieve wellness! I am looking forward to our partnership with my health. Thanks!
I credit Emily Lindner with saving my life and the lives of others I have sent to her. She is the most amazing diagnistician I have ever met.
Exceptional doc with a holistic approach to health.
It was great. I will follow-up with her in two weeks to continue to figure out the best plan for me. She knows her stuff.
We need more doctors like doctor Dr. Lindner! Best and most informed doctor I have EVER seen in my life!
She is very experienced as a American Medical Practicioner as well as excelling in alternative medicine knowledge. On top of that she is a researcher. Couldn't ask for anything more. Brilliant… always helps to get to the root of your health issue. Listens to the patient and their symptoms first! Treats you like a person. Love her :-)
Dr. Lindner is not only the best medical doctor I've ever met, but she's literally one of the only people I've ever truly felt comfortable opening up to. After she was recommended to me by my acupuncturist, I started seeing Dr. Lindner at the height of my illness. For over a month she kept in touch with me frequently via phone and checking in on me and I had only seen her once at that point! She has amazed me with her knowledge and generosity-she's so down to earth and even though she's insanely smart, she doesn't make you feel intimidated. As a student of Chinese Medicine, I also appreciate that she understands what I'm talking about and doesn't look at me like I'm crazy-she gets it! She's trained in so many different modalities; it's truly impressive. I recovered from my illness and now see her on a regular basis for check in and counseling and I always feel so great every time I see her. And her golden retriever Cady is the sweetest; she's very cuddly and is the best assistant! I trust Dr. Lindner 100% which is hard for someone who has trust issues to say. Every doctor should strive to be like her. She's also just a really good and genuine person.
Very warm and articulate doctor. Personable and thorough. I left with an easy but in depth 'game plan' to address major areas of concern. I look forward to returning once my lab work has been completed to further address them taking from all her modalities of expertise.
She has such a warm and inviting presence. She gives each patient a full hour and really focuses on non-pharmaceutical interventions which is just what I was looking for! Very knowledgeable! So glad I found her!
Dr.Lindner is a great listener. I love that she really listens and works with me.
I refer people to her quite often. Fabulous resource for a holistic approach to medicine!
Dr. Lindner is great! She went over my blood work with me and I need more Vit C...which has changed my life! Thanks Dr. Lindner!
I loved her energy and she was very knowledgeable.
Amazing amazing amazing doctor. She gets it!! I have been to hundreds of doctors with my issues, and nobody has been able to solve them. I've only seen her once, but I have faith in her to help me. When a doctor looks at the root cause and tries to find not only the reason of why it's happening but to heal it the most effective way for your body. You know you have a good doctor on your hands. 5 stars!
The Space has a great energy. Cozy. Emily is wonderful. She is so warm and knowledgable. She is interested in you as a whole person and able to offer alternatives. I highly recommend Emily
Dr. Lindner is the rare kind of doctor who has designed her practice to meet the needs of her patients. She is committed to providing compassionate care. She takes the time to understand my health concerns and to explore some possible reasons for my issues. I feel confident that she wants me to experience optimal wellness and. I feel that she respects me as an equal partner in the design of a treatment plan.
She spent a great deal of time and effort with me. I also learned an excellent meditative technique that I now use regularly.
Dr Lindnet is the best. Knowledgable and patient with all my questions.
Dr. Lindner is a wealth of knowledge and I can't wait to put the things in motion we discussed.
Exceptional physician. Knowledgeable, attentive, cares about her patients. I highly recommend for a great blend of traditional and alternative medicine.
She is a great doctor! I have already referred 2 people to her. This is the doctor I have been looking for. Appointments are right on time. You get the whole hour with her (which is highly unusual). She is very respectful; actually listens; and is conscious of functional medicine and treatment paths. Thank God I found Dr. Lindner.
I thought DR Linder was very knowledgable. However, I did not appreciate the constant interruptions. The cell phone, woman picking up her vitamins and the doorbell ringing two times. Not cool! Since this was my first appointment, I will have to meet with the doctor a few more times before I recommend her to others.
She is the best M.D. and takes her time. She made me feel very comfortable and made sure all my questions were answered.
I was beyond impressed with my experience with Dr. Emily, extremely knowledgeable and dedicated. One of the best medical doctors I have seen in my 44 years of life! If you are looking for a doctor whose medical knowledge is encyclopedic, treats the whole person, and takes the time to be caring then you have found the right one :)
competent and professional. Doesn't strictly follow old protocols, but rather applies individualized approach to every patient implementing the results of new research. Personally I believe this is the way the medicine should be practiced
I had a one hour phone consult with Dr. Lindner. It was my second consult in the past year. Frankly, Dr. Linder gave me a good combination of western and holistic medicine. She finds a way to both personalize and de-mystify medicine in a way that I've never experienced before. I would highly recommend her.
Dr. Lindner was very knowledgeable, caring, and informative. She is a great Dr.!
I like her attention to detail and recommendations.
Loved her approach to medicine was very pleased and left feeling so less stressed
She never called me back after I took blood tests. I had to constantly call her or text her with my name, birth date, etc. to have her call the lab to get the blood test results. Despite multiple attempts to get the results from her, she never contacted me. I ended up getting them from the lab myself and finally saw another doctor this past month. I don't know what I did to deserve that kind of treatment; I was looking forward to working with her on nutrition and other alternative modalities as I am a certified Reiki II practioner.
Awesome doctor! Very personable, knowledgeable, and a must see for anyone that needs help with their health!
Always an amazing amount of insight and information!
As always her level of compassion and professionalism far surpasses my expectations . Her knowledge and referral base takes my care to a higher level of dynamic healing
She is very attentive and thoughtful in her history taking and her manner in finding solutions to problems. She thinks outside the box, and it open to alternative methods and practices.
she is extremely knowledgeable and straight forward
Dr. Lindner is the most compassionate, understanding and down-to-earth physician I have ever met. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a health partner vs. just a doctor who will inspect you for "disease" and treat you accordingly. She looks at the whole person (including emotional aspects) and engages in dialogue with you about how to move forward. I am blessed to have found her in the Chicago area.
She was great! She listened, gave great feedback and encouraged me to come back. Great experience!
Dr. Lindner had a very positive view of my problem , and felt confident that she could improve my situation.
Dr. Lindner has been invaluable in navigating my journey back to health. I am so grateful.
Very informative. She took her time and answered my questions and explained everything I wanted to know. A very good experience.
She is a brilliant, wonderful doctor.
My partner and I had our first visit to Dr. Lindner last night. We appreciated the hours that were available to us due to our work schedule. It was like walking into someone's home. We were very comfortable with Dr. Lindner . She was very knowledgable in regards to our issues. Very thorough. Takes the time in length, to get to know you and explains why the issue is happening. My partner and I were so impressed and glad that we found Dr. Lindner. It's good to see that there is still someone out there with bedside manner and doesn't treat you like a number.
I always appreciate Dr. Emily Lindner's insights in relationship to my physical-social well-being! She is a very caring and holistic physician.
Dr. Lindner gave me her full attention and ample time to get to know me and visit during my first visit. She helped me feel comfortable and helped me with ideas related to supplements and vitamins to support my health and diet. I had a great first visit and will definitely return.
She always has inspiring ideas and recommendations. Treats the body as a whole and understands how lifestyle, diet and other elements influence bodily conditions. There should be more doctors with her specialty.
Excellent doctor, really works hard to understand the whole patient, not just the parts that are hurting.
She has made my life substantialy better
Very warm and focused. I'm encouraged!
Dr. Lindner is amazing. She is definitely ahead of the curve in the medical world. The fact that I am able to see her and under my insurance is a complete blessing and for once I have hope that I'll get the help I need to improve my overall health.
I am always so impressed with Dr. Lindner as she is so well versed in women's issues and offers expert solutions. She is treating me for hormone imbalance with natural hormones and I am already feeling so much better. There's also one more perk. She has the sweetest therapy dog in her office.
I love Dr. Lindner because she listens to my concerns (which are often psychological) and offers me way to address them. She always explains everything well. I feel heard and cared for when I see her. Qualities I count and a big thumbs up in a good doctor. I also appreciate that there are more natural ways to treat some conditions and she offers me those options as well as a medical intervention if I so desire.
Dr. Lindner is an excellent doctor and very knowledgeable about keeping yourself healthy. I highly recommend her for all your health concerns. I recommend her to anyone that has health concerns.
Dr, Lindner greeted me kindly at the door of her office and promptly saw me. She spent 1 1/2 hours with me diagnosing my symptoms and suggested ways to achieve the health goals I was seeking. I was positively encouraged to follow her recommendations and will continue to seek her advice.
There's no one better.
Good first meeting.
Dr. Lindner holds a wealth of knowledge of Medical and Alternative health. She focuses on achieving and maintaining wellness and has many suggestions as how to attain this goal. Friendly and articulate, the normal anxiety of doctor visits is dispelled by her congenial manner.
Emily LIndner is by far the best doctor I have been fortunate to have care for me and my well being!!! Highly recommend Emily!!!
Dr. Lindner is a wonderful doctor. She listens, she cares, and she takes the time to go through your issues thoroughly.
She is a very caring, patient, and well informed doctor who will offer solutions and give you hope.
I am very impressed with Dr. Lindner as she is so knowledgeable about women's health issues. She's kind, sympathetic to your issues and an excellent listener, and to top it off, she's a dog lover with the sweetest doggie in her office.
What a different experience! Dr Lindner's office is warm and inviting, and so is she - my appointment with her was at the antipodes of your average doc's appointment. She took the time to really listen to me and used a lot of positive reinforcement. Her therapy dog was just the sweetest thing and really helped quell my anxiety. Dr Lindner is a true healer.
I have been seeing Dr Lindner for the past 14 years. I think she is great. Would highly recommend her.
It was refreshing, surprising really, in that from arrival to exit, doctor and patient were communicating in a relaxed fashion. She was very thorough in history taking and very thoughtful about my health observations. Dr. Lindner's rationale addressing concerns make such great sense!
Very knowledgeable, very attentive listener and always addresses any concerns
Dr Lindner is amazing. She spends time treating the whole patient. She has changed my life!
She listens deeply to what you have to say and ask about your symptoms.
I really appreciate the individual, non-hurried attention to my issues. Dr. Lindner is professional but puts you at ease from the start.
Dr. Lindner goes above and beyond what traditional physicians do. Her holistic approach treats the mind, body, and spirit.
Unlike any doctor I've ever seen. She listened carefully, took her time, and made me feel comfortable right away. She has a lovely therapy dog, as well.
As always - smart, invaluable advice on health and wellness from Dr. Lindner
She listens carefully, analyzes and recommends. She takes a lot of time to understand. Dr. Lindner looks for the source of the problems and explains it in detail. She is the best doctor I've found in 40 years.
Visits with Dr. Lindner are not like the doctor's visits we are used to. She is very informative and genuinely cares about her patients. For years I have gone to doctors who have shuffled me in and out of their office in 15 minutes only sending me back time and again because of inaccuracies. Dr. Lindner takes the time to hear all your symptoms, ask the right questions and give you more knowledge than you could ever grasp. I absolutely LOVE her and her approach to medicine!
I absolutely love and adore Dr. Lindner. I have known her for many years and I wouldn't trade her for any other doctor. She has always been there for me, and I will always be grateful. Hands down the best doctor
Fantastic! She is a super comfortable person, and I think this is because her genuine care for your well-being is obvious. I would recommend her to anyone. The conversation was focused on why I felt I needed to be there, she gave helpful advice that was relevant and clearly explained, and all of my time with her (an hour, give or take) was efficiently and effectively spent. She also has the nicest doctor's office I've ever been in. It's hard to feel anxious when you're greeted by a therapy dog and welcomed into an office that is lit by non-fluorescent lamps and has cozy arm chairs! Two enthusiastic thumbs up.
I love that Dr. Lindner takes the time to explain things to me in ways that I understand. She offers me practical steps to reduce anxiety. Just being in her presence and talking to her is therapeutic. And her therapy pup is a major bonus! :)
I loved working with Dr. Lindner, she asked me tons of questions and really listened and understood what I was going through.
She listens, understands and explains the theory of the problem. Then Dr. Lindner has solutions. She's the only doctor I've had in the past 30 years that has me back on track. The others just threw pills at me and told me I'm getting old. Thanks to Dr. Lindner, there is nothing better than feeling like a new person.
Very warm and personable. Patiently explained her diagnosis. Gave me recommendations based on nutrition and supplements, not invasive treatment or prescriptions. I was very impressed with Dr. Lindner and will definitely be back.
Dr. Lindner is amazing--truly brilliant and one of a kind. I am so grateful to have her as my physician.
Dr. Lindner is extremely knowledgeable. She is current in many aspects of medicine, nutrition, prevention, and treatment.
As always, listens, is responsive and assists with the pending issues.
My visit with Dr. Emily Lindner was the best ever! I felt so cared for by her, as a patient and as a human being. She went beyond addressing my physical ailments, and took the time, care, and a genuine interest to get to know me more. To better assess matters, she spent time asking questions pertaining to my daily habits, and regarding what might be going on in my life that could be contributing to my condition. Besides ordering some necessary labs, she went above and beyond to give me some excellent, insightful, and viable suggestions – leaving me feeling empowered and inspired to do my part to improve my health. She's a brilliant and exceptional doctor.
I really like Dr Lindner! She took the time to listen to my issue and offered solutions! I would highly recommend her to anyone!
The best "first visit" doctor appointment I think I have ever experienced. Warm caring environment (even a Therapy Dog in the intake room), greeted me at the door, quick and efficient, zeroed in on my assessment and needs, very engaged, knowledgeable, and professional.
She's definitely focused on treating the person on the whole and not just symptom by symptom without finding the underlying cause. I felt very comfortable talking with her and felt like every piece of information I shared was absorbed. Very attentive and followed up with me just a day after meeting with her the first time. From this, I believe she must be very invested in each of her patients.
As alway, Emily takes the time to understand the issues, listens and makes thoughtful recommendation. Her talent is unparalleled. Emily - you are great!
Professional, helpful, and informative.
It was good. There was a miscommunication about my appointment but it was resolved.
Dr. Lindner is friendly and down-to-Earth. I appreciated her honest approach and compassion. I have seen her several times and always find her helpful.
Don't question it just go.
Dr. Lindner is unlike any other doctor I've ever seen. She lets YOU run the visit with questions and concerns. She is patient and a great listener. She doesn't sit there and type your symptoms into a computer and make it feel impersonal. You sign up for the time you need, even if you need an hour or more to get your questions covered.
I'm so grateful to have found Dr. Lindner. I had visited other doctors for medical issues (i.e. acne and other things) - and been offered medicine to help with my issues. Dr. Lindner knew so much about how the body works and could cure me naturally by simply having me change my diet. I went gluten-free, sugar free, mostly meat free - with lots and lots of veggies, and my skin started glowing, and as a "side affect" my mood was amazing. I lost any anxiety that I didn't even know I carried with me. I sing her praises to anyone who is looking for natural, long-term health benefits.
She was kind, knowledgeable, and focused on preventative measures over prescriptions. All around great experience!
Best doctor I've ever had.
