The whole staff was wonderful. Would use them again :)
Great bedside manner and the office staff was wonderful!
Dr. Valdez is incredibly kind, attentive, and professional! She truly listens to your concerns and doesn’t brush you off like some doctors do. I don’t have a primary care doctor but I think i found one in her and definitely will be coming back to see Dr Valdez in the future for anything I may need. I waited less than 5 minutes to be seen. I truly recommend!
Dr. Chartre is super sweet, made me feel extremely comfortable and she's funny too!
It was great! I normally hate the doctors office but she was patient with me and answered all of my questions. I felt I could be open and honest with her and she was extremely pleasant!
Great visit! Very friendly and asks all the right questions to make sure you get what you want out of your visit!
Nice and easy to talk to! The wait was a little long, but Dr. Chartre and her assistant were quick and ready to help!
Thanks for everything!
Very nice. Relatable. Knowledgeable. Helpful. I'm feeling much better after seeing her. Her suggestions and prescriptions for my back pain are very helpful. Immediate relief.
Dr. Kathya is extremely caring and helpful
I was skeptical before going in bc of the lack of ratings (and her office is inside of an urgent care) but i had a great visit and reccomend checking her out for your GP needs! She is Dr. Chartre now, btw.
Made me comfortable and understood all concerns
Took a while to find a doctor I trusted in Chicago but I highly recommend Dr. Valdez (who FYI now goes by her married name). Great at listening, explaining simply without condescending, and recommending clear next steps. Will definitely be back!
That was the quickest I have ever been in and out of a doctors office. Everyone was very polite and professional.
Dr. Valdez is the most approachable doctor I have ever had. She is very kind and understanding and never dismisses your concerns. Highly recommend her for any new patient!
I am thrilled to have this doctors office so close to where I live. Great staff made for a very easy visit.
It was over fast although the wait was long.
Dr. Valdez is amazing. She's patient, she listens and supports me being an active participant in planning my health care. Love her!
Timely service. Thorough evaluation. Very patient.
Dr. Valdez was great!
Very quick and professional
Very nice and good. Her staff was present as well. Making her my primary care physician.
Overall the visit went well, what I appreciated was the follow up and learning my test results. Marlene drew blood for the blood work and it was the first time it wasn't painful. Dr. Kathya seemed interested in helping me with my issues.
Dr. Valdez was a pleasure. I was seen for an annual physical, and she took time to listen to all of my concerns. She immediately addressed all of them, and went above and beyond preventative measures, which I very much appreciated. I am so grateful to have found a great partner in my health care.
Dr. Valdez was awesome! I saw her for feminine issues and she made me very comfortable. I will be returning to her for all my medical needs from here on out.
I love Dr. Valdez. She doesn't rush, she listens and she's always kind.
I have found a doctor that is great ! What an easy going experience. Nothing to complain about. More docs should be like Dr. VALDEZ
In and out -- very happy!
She was amazing! So glad to find a doc in Chicago so quickly!
She was just so nice.
I was initially taken aback by the fact that this is actually an Urgent Care facility, but was assured that they also do regular checkups, physicals, OBGYN appointments, etc. I have had some "hit or miss" experiences with finding a doctor since moving to Chicago. Dr. Kathya Valdez is definitely a hit. Her bedside manner is sincere, warm, and calming. I felt prioritized and taken seriously both physically and financially. On top of that, the facility itself is clean, fresh, well lit, and pleasant to be in. They also offer snacks while you wait! :]
Dr. Valdez was very nice and really helpful, addressing each of my concerns.
Professional, friendly and knowledgable. Would highly recommend.
Great service, professional staff, and I have already recommended them to friends and family!
This is the third time I've seen her and she was great, just like the other two times.
I didn't know it was an urgent care facility and I was questioning if I would continue my care with them. But after meeting her and her bedside manner...I will definitely be returning and making her my primary physician. She is wonderful and great staff!!!
Very nice and gentle. All the staff.
Dr. Valdez was warm, friendly and professional. The whole staff did a great job of explaining everything they were doing and I left feeling very well informed. Great job!
She was perfect, friendly and efficient! Answered all of my questions thoroughly and did not rush.
It was great. I was very comfortable and she thoroughly answered any questions I had.
Very kind, knowledgable, helpful, and efficient. Short wait time.
Dr Valdez was great! She has amazing bedside manner and truly cares. Also everyone in the office was wonderful!
Polite, professional and comforting. She is now my primary care physician and I'm very happy with that choice.
Dr. Valdez and her nurse were great, and handled all of my concerns. Best bedside manner I have ever encountered in a primary care physician. The only thing that bugged me was, the front desk nurse kept claiming I didn't fill out the forms via Zocdoc and was insistent on it. That was irritating since I went back and saw them filled out in my account.
It was my first doctors appointment here in Chicago and I had a great experience. She answered all of my questions and was really informative.
Dr. Valdez and her staff are beyond amazing. There aren't enough positive things I could say about them. They genuinely care about the patients and provide amazing service and comfort when you are unaware of what is going on with your body. I have never felt so comfortable with a doctors office until I had my appointment yesterday. Best service ever!
Excellent doctor was very knowledgable,took her time with you and was very pleasant
Dr. Valdez instantly made me feel comfortable and well taken care of during my visit. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a caring and friendly doctor. Very thorough yet efficient exam.
Great appointment. Dr. Valdez and her staff were fantastic.
Kathya was extremely professional and helpful throughout the appointment!
Very comfortable office, hot coffee and tea, friendly staff
She was great. Dr. Valdez and the nurse working that day both made me feel comfortable.
