As a family physician, I enjoy establishing long-term relationships with my patients. I provide high quality health care to men, women, and children of all ages, including prenatal care and vaginal deliveries for pregnant women. I strive to be a compassionate doctor, who makes my patients feel comfortable and respected and who gives them the time they need to discuss their questions and concerns. I am board certified in family medicine and also am a faculty member in the Department of Family Medicine Residency Program at St. Joseph Hospital. If you are or plan to become pregnant, there are a number of reasons why you will benefit from seeing a family physician such as myself for your prenatal care! We practice Family Centered Maternity Care, which means that we can take care of mom and dad before the pregnancy, then parents and baby during and after the pregnancy. Instead of making multiple appointments at different offices, the whole family can be seen by me for all of their health care needs for many years to come!
Verified Patient Reviews
She was great! Office wait time was horrible. Would have appreciated some heads up on why it was going to take so long.
Dr. Wally was very friendly and checked me quite thoroughly to make sure she wasn't missing anything. She listened to everything I had to say and seemed to spend good time to analyze everything without skipping any step. I'm just disappointed she's not closer to where I live. I don't have any complaints about Dr.Wally, but I do about Zocdoc - reception (lack of communication or response between the online patient information) which I will address separately.
Great bedside manner, very long wait.
Even after leaving the waiting room and going into an exam room, the wait to see the doctor is long. But, Dr. Wally has such a polite, friendly, and approachable bedside manner so even with the long wait times, it is worth my yearly wellness visit for how professional and nice of a doctor she is.
Dr. Wally is kind, patient, thoughtful and very thorough. I look forward to having her as my new PCP.
She is a caring doctor
Best bedside manner. Very thorough. Never rushed, ergo the wait time.
Dr. Wally is wonderful! She takes great notes and really listens to you when you're telling her how you're doing and why your visiting. She also offers great suggestions and comes up with an efficient course of action. Time well spent! The office is pretty cool too--too bad I didn't have to wait and get to play with the handy charging station for your electronics. They even offer free guest WiFi so I could keep up with my email and not miss that much work.
Great! She was very informative and helpful.
This was my first visit with Dr. Wally and I was so impressed. She was warm and welcoming and I felt like I had known her a very long time. She was thorough and answered all of my questions. I have had the same doctor for almost 20 years, and going to a new doctor was something I was nervous about. Dr. Wally made this a painless transition.
Dr. Wally was kind and personable. She was happy to spend the time with me and answer my questions (or at least pretended :) ) It was a comfortable visit and I will definitely continue seeing her!
Dr. Wally was easy to talk to and to ask questions. She makes her patient feel very comfortable and listens to any concerns the patient has.
Dr. Wally is the best. I've been going to her for years. Excellent diagnostic skills with a sweet warm personality.
I needed a new doctor and Dr. Wally had excellent reviews so I thought I would give it a try! Excellent location, close to public transportation and parking lot too. The place looks kind of "meh" on the inside but it's just an outdated design. Dr. Wally was pleasant and friendly from the start and was thorough in her exam. She talked to me about options and was extremely professional. I'll definitely be coming back to Dr. Wally!
I really liked Doctor Wally overall... very kind and answered all of my questions, though when she exited I thought she'd be coming back to go over everything and instead a nurse did. Then I found out that most of the things that we discussed in the appt needed to be done elsewhere as those services were not offered at that office. That was a little confusing to me and I probably wont be going back to that office because it was pointless for the most part :(
Dr Wally and the entire staff are wonderful folks that take great care of you and are able to help you get in and determine a great course of treatment. Love the phlebotomist--she's a 1-shot technician who knows her stuff and doesn't bruise you. So wonderful--much to be thankful for here!
Dr. Wally is fantastic. She is professional, comforting, and knowledgeable. Even under the most stressful of circumstances, Dr. Wally and her nursing staff were able to help me calm down- a nurse even stood by my bedside and held my hand during a procedure! Dr. Wally exhibits compassion and care for her patients with such a natural ease that I sometimes forget that I have only been a patient of Dr. Wally for a few months.
Overall, the clinic is great and Dr. Wally is friendly and has excellent beside manner. However, the wait time between seeing the medical assistant for vitals and seeing the doctor for the appointment has been 30-45 minutes the past two times I have visited the clinic. I don't particularly enjoy sitting in an exam room for that length of time, twiddling my thumbs.
The doctor was great, however, the lobby had an off putting odor and the wait time was a little long - both to be called in and while waiting to see the physician.
I really felt like I was in good hands. I was a new patient and everyone was very welcoming. Dr. Wally listened to all my concernes and I felt like she took me serious (my previous dr. did not). She referred me to specialists and gave me advice. I'm excited to have her as my new GP.
Looking forward to continuing on a long path of her being my primary care physician.
Dr. Wally is very patient and calm and caring!
Dr. Wally and her team of medical professionals were all very kind, attentive, and professional. I would recommend her to anyone!
Dr. Wally is wonderful! She has a great bedside manner and is very knowledgeable. I do think office scheduling could be better, though, since I was brought to an exam room and wasn't seen until 50 minutes later.
The actual appointment was quick and the doctor's beside manner was excellent. But, the wait until I actually saw the doctor was ridiculous; I was waiting in an exam room for over 50 minutes before the doctor came in and during that entire time no one came in (doctor or nurse) to tell me what the hold up was.
I loved my visit and my care. Dr. Wally was so nice and gentle, I'll definitely be back and be recommending her. The nurses were great as well.
It was just a quick consultation but she was GREAT! Very attentive, listened to my concerns before making any assumptions. I am very glad that I decided to switch providers and make the haul to the North side to see her.
i thought she was very thorough, personable, professional, helpful, and all around made it a good experience.
She is absolutely wonderful. I had such a lovely experience meeting with Dr. Wally, who followed-up on all the items and prescriptions that were discussed during my appointment. Highly recommend.
Care from Dr. Wally was great but I had to wait nearly an hour between seeing the nurse and seeing her.
Overall great experience! The nurses were very helpful, and very nice. I had an early morning appointment and arrived well before my scheduled time. Although not all the staff was in and ready for my visit, people were very helpful to move me right along. Dr. Wally was so helpful. As a recent grad, I am still adjusting to my own insurance rules & limitations. She was able to fill the need of multiple doctors I was used to seeing. Made things a lot smoother!
Dr. Wally is so kind and attentive. I was extremely please with both her and her team! Highly recommend!
I was very comfortable. Both Laura and her assistant were very friendly and knowledgeable. They were very thorough when asking questions and made sure I had the opportunity to express all of my concerns.
Dr. Wally was so nice! She listened to everything I had to say and was very caring. You can really tell she genuinely cares for her patients.
Dr. Wally was wonderful. She greeted me with a smile. She was kind and calm. She spent the appropriate length of time with me. I didn't feel hurried or unimportant. I'm really glad I found her. She's knowledgable, thorough and warm.
Dr. Wally is the best! She's kind, helpful, and clearly knowledgeable.
Dr. Laura gives you her full attention, she takes her time to ensure when you leave there you're feeling good about the appointment and decisions made concerning your overall health.
Very friendly, very professional, very nice, very competent!
Professional and kind. I had not seen a PCP in a long time and therefor had a lot of questions and concerns. I did not feel rushed or judged at all. She was completely understanding and I felt like my concerns were heard.
Dr. Wally was so wonderful.
I have never felt as comfortable being myself, being REAL, discussing my health with Dr. Wally. Her demeanor, her communication skills, her extremely-advanced knowledge of modern medicine esp. re: family-wide health plan implementation, great listener, yet great at communicating her professional advice/opinion. I feel very lucky to have found Dr. Wally. She will ABSOLUTELY do what it takes to make sure that her patients are properly, effectively, and expeditiously cared-for. I HIGHLY recommend her! -M Chicago, IL
Dr. Wally was very nice, warm & friendly- she showed compassion and concern about your concerns and family history.
Dr. Wally is very kind. Have had to wait a fair amount but every time she's been worth the wait.
Dr. Wally is great as a family doctor. However, her office staff are definitely not customer friendly nor do they have much knowledge or training in how their systems work. Also, Dr. Wally is very difficult to get into as it would've been over a month before I could get in to see her. I was advised by her office staff to try scheduling an appointment through Zocdoc, which I did but the office canceled the appointments two times without contacting me as to why or to reschedule. I later found out Dr. Wally's office only uses ZocDoc for brand new patients. The whole office is a cluster and if Dr. Wally was a physician somewhere else, I would go to her there. As it stands, I'm finding a new doctor solely because of the chaos that is the office at her current office.
Unfortunately waited for 45 minutes...but I guess it is always worth it. Dr. Wally never rushes me, she makes sure I am able to get all of my questions answered and fully understand her explanations. Very thorough, understanding and caring.
I had to wait about 45 minutes once I got to the exam room but other then that everyone there was great. I really liked Dr. Wally and would def recommend her.
She took her time and listened. Was very friendly. A++. Nice to have a good doctor to go to again!
As a patient of Dr. Wally for nearly three years, I have to say, she is a wonderful physician. Unfortunately, the facility she works in lacks the professional, prompt and courteous atmosphere I am looking for in a physician's office.
She was great! Very thorough, but also friendly. As enjoyable as a doctor's appointment is going to be.
=Great, Dr, Wally takes all the time you need with her patients.
Pros: Dr. Wally and her staff were thorough and kind. Cons: The results, of a couple tests were lost.
She is awesome!!
I would recommend Dr. Wally for her professionalism and bedside manner. However, the wait time in the office was unacceptable.
I thought she was great, she listened to what I had to say, although I'm waiting on a referral that I have not received yet. The office was a bit dated, it could definitely use a make over!
Waiting for 75 minutes to be seeing for 7 minutes is ridiculous. I had to cancel other appointments because of how insanely late they were. I like Dr. Wally and if I only have to see a doctor once a year, I'd recommend her and encourage a morning appointment with no afternoon plans.
I really like her. I've been seeing her for more than a year and she's been great!
Very easy to talk to, gentle and kind
She is wonderful!
Her manner was awesome. I had to wait a really long time, especially because I had to come in early for a first time visit. But once she got there, she was super patient and understanding. I appreciated that she didn't try to rush me out the door.
No wait in the office, but almost an hour waiting for the doctor in the exam room.
Dr. Wally is a good listener and very empathetic and supportive. I will go back to her!
Dr. Wally is professional, warm, and trustworthy. A great family practice doc and one that I've recommended to friends and family.
Dr. Wally is a great physician that listens to my needs and attentively addresses my issues. I highly recommend her.
I really appreciate Dr. Wally and her friendliness along with efficiency & effective appointments.
Doctor did not have time to complete a procedure and asked to come again. Why should I do so? I paid the co-pay and my insurance was billed for the visit. If the doctor has only 15 minutes to spare, then please state so and we can decide whether to come for consultation or not.
Great doctor, efficient and friendly. Slow front office though.
Although the wait was longer than I expected, it was worth it. Laura had a very sunny disposition and addressed every one of my questions thoroughly and from a very informed perspective. I would definitely see her again!
Love Dr Wally, very thorough, smart, professional. She is what a Dr should be. She takes time to listen and discussed my options with me. Great personality & bedside manner.
Excellent! There were more concerns I had that don't really feel I got the chance to talk about, (maybe there was a lack of time?) but otherwise she was very kind, friendly and seemed to be concerned about my overall well being.
Dr. Wally was friendly and very thorough. The office also has a pharmacy on-site.
Dr. Wally was good, but the wait was ridiculous! It was over an hour from my scheduled appointment time before I saw her. Very disappointing. Despite that, I think I will continue going there because I did like her very much. Hopefully it was just one bad day!
Very professional and kind. Wait was a little long, but I would imagine that this is not typical.
Dr. Wally was very professional, efficient, and friendly. My experience at the doctor's office was very good.
It was my first visit and I was very happy with her. I will be using her as my primary care doctor from now on
Good thourough apt
Dr. Wally and her teaching assistant were very nice and professional. This was my first time seeing her. I felt like they took me as a whole human being and not just the condition that I was seeing them about into consideration. They made the necessary referrals and I left feeling confident. Thank you Dr. Wally.
Doctor was friendly and understanding, plus she seemed quite thorough. I had to fill in my insurance information and more when I got there -- even though I'd provided ZocDoc with it all.
I can't remember the last time a doctor spent an hour with me. She was fabulous, took the time to listen to me, and best of all made recommendations on how to work through my health concerns.
Dr. Wally was very nice. She seemed a little distracted though.
Very helpful, personable, and honest. I will go back.
Boring. No help at all.
I had an appointment, but I waited for 90 minutes to see Dr. Wally. It took 45 minutes just to see a nurse. When she arrived, she was calm and kind enough, but she seemed unsure about how she wanted to treat my condition. I felt uncomfortable with her indecision.
Dr. Wally was super sweet and very genuine!
