Verified Patient Reviews
I was able to fill out all the paperwork online in advance of my appointment so I didn't have to sit in the waiting room doing it which was very convenient. Once I was checked in, I was asked to wait in the comfortable waiting room, but had barely sat down when my name was called and I was taken into an examination room by a very nice young lady who took my vitals. After a wait of a few minutes Dr Nottingham came in, listened to what had to say (!), asked me questions, and proceeded to give me a very through exam. She answered all my questions and we set an action plan. What can I say? It was everything one could want in a doctor's office visit.
I found Dr. Nottingham very personable. She was patient and listened carefully to ensure that a proper diagnosis was provided and plan for next steps.
She is phenomenal
Dr. Nottingham was very quick, very pleasant and dealt with my issue. I would recommend her highly.
Dr. Nottingham is still the best. Her bedside manner is fantastic, especially with kids. She is thorough and knowledgeable and a great surgeon too. Can't recommend her enough. Her office staff were also so kind with my daughter today (she was feeling really bad). There's always easy parking and we've never had a long wait at her office.
Dr. Nottingham diagnostic skills are impressive. Her physical exam combined with what she deciphered from my medication list enabled her to see clearly my problem.
I have had multiple ear and sinus infections for over 3 years. Living in Chicago I had seen several ENT and even primary care physicians in an attempt to get some relief. Dr Nottingham was highly recommended and when I knew I was going to be in the area on business I made an appointment. Amazing! She spent time carefully explaining to me the CAT scan that I had completed with my physician in Chicago and was able to thoroughly explain my condition ( which was totally different that what I had been told) and provide an optimal solution that gave me both symptom relief and confidence that I had chosen the right doctor after three years of trying to obtain treatment. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Nottingham, excellent bedside manner, personable and extremely intelligent, yet I felt comfortable enough to speak to her openly. Great experience!
The front desk staff were quick and efficient. The nurse was friendly and professional. Dr Nottingham was great...very easy to talk to and she listened to me with interest. (Hate when Drs don't look at you while you talk). She relieved my worry in 2 minutes and knew just how to treat my malady. I'm very pleased and would highly recommend her.
She's very knowledgeable and caring! I would definitely recommend her.
Friendly and knowledgeable!
LOVE Dr. Nottingham. Wonderful
I'm excited to have her as my doctor going forward. Nothing but positive vibes from her.
I take my 6 yr old regularly to Dr. Nottingham and she loves her. She is very patient with my daughter, has a very soothing voice and makes her feel very comfortable!
She was great!
Extremely nice and polite. Gave sound advice and tied together my medical records very well
Dr. Nottingham is everything a physician should be: caring, empathetic and absolutely skilled--at the top of her game. I would recommend her to anyone seeking a very competent ENT specialist.
In the moment you think everything is wonderful. Nothing more occurred than what my Primary Care Physician did: look in my ear, feel my throat, and prescribe an OTC. I thought the whole point of a specialist is that they would test you for things. Perhaps I am mistaken and you can take this review with a grain of salt. But as it stands that was a lot to pay out of pocket and nothing more than a sleep study was offered. I do love the office atmosphere, the staff is extremely professional, and she did answer all of my questions. And the follow-up is nice to have as well. This is why I am scoring so highly. Perhaps my expectations were higher to have a scope or something more. But I do recommend this office and Dr. Nottingham with my current understanding of what is supposed to occur at an ENT.
One of the best doctors I have been treated by, she was very knowledgeable yet presented complex information in an understandable manner. She was also very patient, kind and engaging, would highly recommend
I was promptly attended to at the front office. The staff in general throughout my visit were helpful, patient, and professional. Dr. Nottingham was very easy to communicate with, made me feel comfortable, and fully answered my questions. Moreover, she had a sense of humor, which I was not looking out for!
The office staff was pleasant and helpful. Dr. Nottingham was a good listener and suggested treatment options and encouraged me to return in 30 days to report on my progress. She's personable and professional. I would highly recommend her.
I went to see Dr. Nottingham about some pain I was having in my ears while flying. She was kind and warm, did a thorough exam and after finding nothing wrong she gave me some advice on what to do next time I fly to avoid pain. Her advice worked great, hardly and discomfort in my inner ear on take off or landing. Would definitely recommend her.
she is very kind, and was open to answer any questions.
The office was very accommodating when I accidentally arrived 3 hours early for my appointment and Dr. Nottingham was able to see me in between other obligations. She addressed my concerns, spent a sufficient amount time with me and her bedside manner was excellent. The PA was excellent as well.
Dr. Nottingham addressed my list of issues in a professional manner. She discussed options and developed a treatment plan. The office staff was pleasant and professional.
Dr. Nottingham has seen both of my daughters. She did the tonsillectomy for my eldest daughter and has excellent bedside manner with children. Both of my girls loved her and felt very at ease with her. She also takes the time to really explain everything to both the parent and the child.
very attentive, helpful advice, asked all the right questions, collected and documented a lot of information.
I have only great complemnets for her.
I've seen Dr. Nottingham twice and this is officially my favorite medical practice of all time. The front office, the young woman who took my vitals and my history, and Dr. Nottingham are all top-notch. And I was seen within two minutes of my appointment time, which hasn't happened to me in probably 15 years. I would recommend her without hesitation.
Very professional. Explained everything. Will recommend her to all my friends
Extremely helpful advice was given that included practical and preventative care!
I felt vey comfortable. She was very patient and attentive to what I had to say. I will recommend her to my co-workers .
Dr. Nottingham has wonderful bedside manner - never seems in a rush. Today she explained the answers to all of my questions very carefully and with charts and a model, which was very helpful. She was very encouraging about my progress.
She was great at the time - but I had issues with my prescription that she never resolved so I was unable to get the medication prescribed to me after 2 months of attempting to reach out and my condition has now worsened. Will never recommend anyone to that practice.
This was my first appointment with Dr. Nottingham. I was very impressed. She was very professional and kind, she explained every process that she was doing and why, she gave me a good review of what she found or didn't find after her examination of my throat. I felt that the exam was very thorough. As you can probably tell, I liked her very much!
My visit with Dr. Nottingham was great. She listened to my concerns and seemed very willing to try and help me with my issue. I would highly recommend her to anyone with ear, nose, or throat issues.
She is wonderful! I've been to 2 other ENTs in the area and she is by far the best i've ever gone to.
Dr. Nottingham is fantastic. Always quick to get me back onto the road to recovery and really listens to everything I have to say. Can't say enough good things about her.
Very professional, easy to talk to and listen to your concerns. I highly recommend Dr Nottingham to family and friends. Keep up the good work.
I have had sharp pains in the neck and several small lumps in the area under my chin. My primary care doctor is concerned about these symptoms. So, I go to see an ENT - Dr. Nottingham. Dr. Nottingham did not take my health issues seriously. She looked at the area above my neck and under my face and then massaged it for about 10 seconds. She asked a few questions. That was it. No tests were ordered. The outcome of the appointment was that she recommended that I drink more water. I left the appointment very frustrated, since it took significant time and money for me to get to the appointment and pay for it, and she essentially did nothing. I subsequently saw another doctor who diagnosed the problem, treated it with medication, which was followed by resolution.
Very nice, warm and welcoming. Precise attention to my issues. Found and ENT Spec.
I had a very pleasurable experience at Dr. Nottingham's office. The staff was very friendly. Dr. Nottingham was very concerned with my issues and made several recommendations to treat my condition.
Great! Staff was very friendly and helpful. Doctor was very pleasant and thorough. Scheduling for my sleep test and follow ups were taken care of immediately.
The front desk staff, the doctors staff, the intern and Mrs. Liesi Nottingham MD, were all on point and very efficient. Filling out the paper work online is a great and helpful idea. It cuts down on time and mistakes. Thank you.
She and her staff were wonderful. They were professional and friendly. Dr. Nottingham was waiting in the patient room when I got there! What a nice surprise! She may have the best bedside manner of any doctor I've ever seen in my 34 years on earth.
