Verified Patient Reviews
My daughter and I went to see her on two separate occasions. My daughter, who is 14, really liked the doctor and her professionalism. And after seeing the fast results, I decided to go. The nurse was very nice and helpful and the doctor was great. The visit was nice and quick and they answered all my questions. I have already recommended Dr. Breadon to some of my co-workers.
Great doctor with helpful insight. Only down fall was the wait time. My appointment was scheduled for 10:30am and I was not placed into a room until some time after 12pm.
Office asked to reschedule and for me to come in early. Came in early for my appointment and waited over an hour to see the Dr. The appointment was even worse than the waiting. Dr. did not follow up with culture results and insisted I use her unknown, independent pharmacy who also never called me. Bedside demeanor quickly went downhill after I refused a shot I didn't need.
Very professional, explains what she is prescribing, gives options.
I loved this office! Super convenient and she seems really knowledgeable. She took the opportunity to get to know what my problems are..."tell me everything from the beginning"...I love a doctor who care's about what YOU think is wrong with YOU and evaluates from there. She put me on a treatment plan and I was out and back to work in an hr.
I went there with a concern about an ingrown hair that had become problematic .. And instead they were pushing sales about laser treatments. I was treated with something to help the ingrown but with a "I don't think this will work" And other things were said to further my concern (enough that I found another dermatologist that day to resolve my concerns!). It wasn't the right fit for me and what I was looking for.
Visit and doctor were great.
She is wonderful and so is her staff!!!! She took the time to explain everything. She is warm and easy to approach.
I have seen Dr. Breadon on several occasions and I have found her to be insincere and unfocused during appointments. Her staff is cold; I've never seen one of them smile or offer a kind word during patient visits. It is difficult to get questions answered when contacting her office staff. I'm not seen as a valued patient or customer at this practice; I'm just a number. I wouldn't recommend this doctor to anyone.
She's very professional
Great visit! Helpful and friendly staff, warm and inviting office space. Dr. Breadon was able to diagnose me immediately, and answered all of my questions. Great experience.
Very relaxing environment for waiting. Staff are attentive and thorough. Dr. Breadon is one of the best physicians I have ever seen. Best choice for a Dermatologist.
I have been seeing Dr. Breadon for a few years. Always super personable, listens to you, remembers you. Everybody in the office is very nice and helpful.
It was very professional, pleasant and relaxin. I must say i enjoyed my visit .
Dr. Breadon is great! You can tell, immediately, her vast knowledge on skin issues. I went in, originally, just for face and body acne, and she saw that I had a keloid on my chest, that my past Doctor wasn't able to get completely flat, and now it's as though I never had the scar in the first place! My acne has also majorly cleared, which is ah-may-zing! The only downside to her, is that she really does push certain products even after your clear reluctance on them, besides that she is fantastic at what she does.
Dr. Breadon was able to diagnose my skin issue very quickly. She gave me a quick run down of the known information about the condition and provided me with an informational pamphlet as well as a sample of the lotion to help calm my skin. I was able to get in with her the same day I needed an appointment, which is why I chose her, but the office seems to be more geared towards cosmetic treatments and procedures and less towards "dermatology". That being said, my needs were met quickly and I appreciate the office's availability and efficiency.
I am giving 3 starts out of 5 not for the doctor. but for the staff around that was checking me in and out. When I came for my appointment, receptionists were rude and lazy. Couldn't find me in the system. When I asked them if my insurance is in network, they just said yes yes without checking and (I later received a huge bill). Staff was on their cellphones most of the time and completely ignored my questions.
I arrived early and was seen later than my appointment. Once, I was in the room, I was told to undress and was left in a cold room for about 20 minutes before seeing the doctor. She diagnosed the symptoms fairly quickly, then prescribed some topical creams. I should have gone to the local drug store.
Wow! Dr Breadon was amazing. Initially I only wanted a consultation,. However, I was so impressed I had my procedure performed immediately and my results were superb.
She has met oprah.... This woman is legit
Aside from the wait time, she appeared to be very knowledgeable, thorough & attentive. I think those are critical traits to have. I look forward to seeing how my skin improves. Somehow I sense that it will get drastically better :).
While Dr. Breadon is knowledgeable, her wait time is ridiculous. I've gone multiple times now and skates been seen 45 minutes to an hour after my appointment time.
She was very knowledgeable and most importantly made me feell at ease right away. She is truely an excellent MD. Simply the Best!!!!!!
When I made my appointment with Dr. Breadon, the office called me right away to confirm and adjust my appointment time. This made me feel wonderful, knowing the team was adjusting my appointment time to better suit their current line up of patients and the minimize my wait. When I arrived for my appointment, 10 minutes early, I had plenty of time to fill out the new patient forms. By the time I was done, it was the exact time of my appointment. I waited in the waiting room for 20 more minutes, not unusual for a small practice, before being briskly whisked upstairs for the pre-consultation with the assistant. After answering a bevy of questions, the assistant left after telling me the doctor would be in shortly. I waited in the exam room for another 20 minutes before the assistant popped back in, telling me "I hadn't been forgotten" and the doctor would be in as soon as her previous procedure ended. A full hour and ten minutes after my appointment time, Dr. Breadon entered my exam room. It was startling to me, however, because no one in this office knocks on the exam room door before entering. Between Dr. Breadon's entrance, the assistant's entrance, the in-training assistant's entrance, another assistant needing the first assistant's assistance, etc. etc. there were at least a dozen instances when someone entered my exam room during the appointment without knocking on the door. And Dr. Breadon and I were trying to have a detailed conversation throughout the nearly constant stream of physical interruptions. All of this was very over-whelming and made me feel unimportant and belittled. The exam was quick and thorough however, making me feel at least listened to and well cared for during our very brief time together. After answering my questions and explaining her beliefs on my current predicament, Dr. Breadon rattled off four treatments I could try at home before ordering a blood sample to be drawn. The blood draw, performed by her assistant, was quick and painless, making me feel grateful for the ease and familiarity of that procedure. I requested a copy of the labs drawn as well as my co-payment receipt before leaving the establishment, which were provided willingly although not automatically. Overall, my appointment satisfactory, but not one that I will be willingly repeating any time soon.
I loved her! She asked a lot of questions, explained everything. Her assistant was equally attentive and so were the front desk staff.
Good service all around
I will definitely see this doctor again. Very knowledgeable and direct in treatment as well as cause.
Fast, accurate, and efficient professional service from everyone.
The visit was pretty standard but her office and staff are very welcoming. Dr. was very conserned and asked question to find my sons to find my sons problem.
iT WAS GOOD SHE IS VERY PROFESSIONAL AND MEDICATED MY AREA OF CONCERN
Very profesional. Didn't rush me out to see another patient. Made sure I understood everything.
Beautiful office, knowledgeable and professional staff. Great bedside manner. Dr. Breadon has a thorough and consultative approach as we discussed my treatment history in detail before ever talking about a solution. She was able to diagnose my eczema flare up (which looked to me like a rash) and begin treatment immediately. Extremely knowledgeable about African American skin conditions which is surprisingly difficult to find! I would recommend highly to anyone regardless of skin type.
Would not go back. Even though they confirmed my appointment, they said they didn't have me booked. Horrible bedside manners. Her assistant came in after 5 min of the doctor being with me and said another patient could not wait any longer to see her so she answered by telling her that she would only be with me for another 4-5min. And she was. She did not listen to my questions and her reponses were not helpful at all. She kept pushing medication that she clearly had ties to and would not give me the generic even though my insurance covered it. Would not recommend this doctor to anyone!!
She was cool and understanding. She answered my questions and took care of my needs.
I arrived early but was seen within 3-5 minutes of my appointed time. This was my third appointment with her and she was as thoughtful and through with me, explaining my condition and what to do as she was on my first visit.
Highly profession but approachable, definitely a very pleasant visit
Dr. Breadon is a beautiful women in and out. She was able to help me and understand my unfortunate skin issues. I will follow her plan & hopefully have flawless skin like she does.
By far a very positive experience. This visit was so much better than out first visit there and I'm glad I took my daughter back :)
The doctor and staff were very knowledgeable and helpful. A great one stop shop for a dermatologist and all things skincare related!
It was a great experience. Everyone was wonderful.
Dr. Breadon is absolutely the best. She does both medical and cosmetic dermatology with expertise and grace. She's at the top of her game and joy to be around.
Dr. Breadon is confident, professional and clearly knows her stuff. I am so glad I was referred here. I look forward to fabulous results. If I had one criticism I would say her front desk staff could smile more. But it didn't effect my visit or my impression.
It was excellent. I will recommend to a friend. I went in for a medical treatment and evaluation. I will come back for beauty treatments.
She was such a lovely women. I feel like she really took her time to listen to me & figure out what my needs were. I am not from Chicago but when i come back I will definitely come back to see Jonith Breadon MD!
Wonderful bedside manner. Office staff is very professional. Parking is a problem, but if you give yourself enough time you can find a spot.
Extremely knowledgeable, personable and insightful. Would highly recommend.
Dr. Breadon was amazing! She was so kind and understanding! She made me feel very comfortable about my condition and found a solution that remedied it quickly! I will definitely be returning!
ok but the three times I went I saw a different person each time. they also pushed super aggressive treatments like Accutane & injections.
the office was very nice. she was extremely professional and addressed all of my concerns.
Dr. Breadon was very friendly and had good bedside manner. She made me feel comfortable in a pretty frightening situation
I was extremely pleased. She is thorough and has a wonderful personality. Her facilities are great. Everyone was courteous.
It was excellent !
The office is beautiful and the staff is very friendly. I was greeted professionally and assisted right away. Dr. Breadon was listened to my questions, was attentive and very informative. Great Experience.
THE AMBIENCE WAS AMAZING. THE STAFF WERE PERSONABLE AND I APPRECIATE THE FACT THAT I WAS SEEN AT MY SCHEDULED APPOINTMENT TIME.
Great visit!! Very professional, to the point and I was in and out in almost 30 minutes. She was also great about me asking a zillion questions. Very patient and I felt I could call back and ask more questions if I need to.
I absolutely love Dr. Breadon. Been her patient since I was teenager. I have gone to doctors that were closer to where I live, but I always return to her. I don't believe you will find a better doctor even if you try!
Overall good visit, good staff, comfortable office. Very knowledgeable. Im definitely coming back to see her and would absolutely recommend to friends.
Very professional, informative and engaging. I was very pleased with the treatment and all the related information I received.
I had to wait over an hour for a two minute appointment. It wouldn't have been so bad if someone had come and told me that they were backed up. Instead I was left to wait in the exam room in a paper gown staring at the ceiling for an hour.
Provided sufficient information. cooperative and friendly
My visit was very nice and informative.
I loved the feel of the office and everyone there were very pleasant and had welcoming smiles, very calm environment. I loved the stairs (nice touch)
Awesome and Informative!
Doctor and staff was very thorough and professional.
Dr. Breadon is wonderful. She has a very nice office, very nicely decorated and up to date equipment. Also her staff was absolutely wonderful and very helpful with any questions I had regarding procedures and billing. I would definitely recommend her to my friends and family.
Dr. Breadon is wonderful! She took time to explain the reasons for my condition and offered insight into the effectiveness of particular medications.
Other than the wait time the visit was great. Already notice huge improvement
I waited too long for my appointment!
Very professional and a good woman.
My visit went very well. All office staff were courteous and polite. Dr. Breadon answered all of my questions in regards to my appointment as well as other randon concerns that I had. She also provided multiple treatment options and made sure that I understood all steps for possible procedures. In and out in a little over an hour. Would recommend to anyone.
Great personality, wish she would have spent more time with me since this was my first visit. I felt a bit rushed, after waiting 35min. however she seems very knowledgable and that's what counts most. If treatment works then she'll def be added to my physician's list. Only wish she could spend more time with her patients, as it's important for my physician to know me by name. Would recommend, as this experience was an improvement from my last Derm.
One of the best dermatology visits I've had in my whole life. I think I found a dermatologist that actually will help me and make me want to visit again! All around wonderful.
I have been to 3 doctors. This is the first doctor that seem the most competent. I highly recommend this doctor. She is aware how skin conditions impact different races. She is medically and culturally competent.
Dr. Breadon and her staff were wonderful, friendly, attentive, and personable! I'd highly recommend her to anyone. My wait time was the only issue I had.
Great service and very knowledgeable
Dr. Breadon was highly professional, clear and straightforward. I will return for follow-up and make her a part of my medical team.
From start to finish, everyone in her office was very nice. I left Dr. Breadon feeling better both physically and emotionally. I can't imagine ever getting tired of seeing the good Doctor. A+ Thank you Doc.
Dr. Breadon was very patient and answered all of my questions to the best of her knowledge. She seemed to genuinely care and wanted to help. I will be seeing her again in about a month.
she was awesome.. very personable and welcoming. she definitely my new dermatologist
Wait time has gotten worse since my first visit. Hopefully it will get better.
The staff was friendly and took the time explain in details any of the medical information I didn't understand. Very good experience.
She was through and professional! I felt that she spent the necessary time with me needed! Office enviroment was astetically pleasing and staff was friendly and professional. Most importantly she diagnosed my problem right away and gave me the necessary treatment and follow up protocal. I felt increasing better the next day! Dr Breadon, thank you for working your magic!
She was warm, comforting, and made me feel at ease. Her office and assistant were the same. I would recommend...
I think that I was the most challenging visitor of the day since I was a new patient and the logistics of the insurance was a lot more complicated than expected. Other than the issue with my co-payment and the hour long wait, it was in fact very refreshing that Dr. Breadon was very knowledgeable, courteous, and patient when meeting with her. Her front desk rep (I think she was the doctors niece at the front desk) was also very patient and apologetic considering the initial challenges with the paperwork that we were having.
Dr.Breadon and company were more concerned about my condition then even I was. They are good people.
It went very well! She provided me with answers I needed and I will def be going back to her! Very nice and informative!
The office is very attractive. The receptionists and other staff are helpful and courteous. I did not mind the wait. There were several pages of previous health information to be filled and other important data the doctor needs to enable her to make proper decisions and give clients after-care advice. She took the time to listen. This is the second time in 16 years I have seen her. What she then did clear all my problems. I did not even consider going to another dermatologist.
Dr. Breadon is fantastic -- compassionate yet thorough. She takes her time with each patient, which means you may have a long wait time, especially for appointments later in the day. The longest wait I experienced was 45 minutes -- annoying long, but I know it's because she's giving her full attention to all her patients before me. Would highly recommend Dr. Breadon for anyone with skin concerns/ailments -- Dr. Breadon was able to help me in ways no other doctor had!
Love her! She was sweet, funny, and most important knowledgeable! She knew her stuff and really made me feel like I will get better soon! She gave me information to better learn the skin problem I was dealing with-it which made me feel like I could control it instead of it controlling me.
Once again, Jonith and her staff provided exceptional service. She was thorough in her examination and diagnosis.
The entire staff were professional, warm and inviting. While I was nervous about the visit, everyone made my visit comfortable. Dr. Breadon was like big sister/mom talking to me, giving me an education about what she was doing and why. I felt like an individual, not a number!
I guess this doctor is too popular to see average patient.
Judith and her team were exceptionally pleasant. Combined with her impressive knowledge and recommended treatment, my visit was well worth it.
Very professional, friendly, and saw me 25 minutes early!!
I found the Doctor and her assistant Jeff to be very professional, knowledgable, and I would highly recommend this practice.
Dr. Breadon is awesome, very pleasant and really wants to help you get better. Entire staff is amazing!
Everyone was very helpful and kind, they listened to exactly what I needed.
It was a real pleasure to be seen by her and her staff. I feel very lucky to have found her! Thanks again. Stephen Kellogg
Dr. Jonith didn't make me feel nervous and she took her time with me and let me ask questions, she explained everything to me and didn't make me feel rushed.
The wait was about an hour because of a mishap with the receptionist and call back to change my appointment time. I am new patient and so far I like what I am hearing as far as my treatment.
