Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Babbin is extraordinary and kind. Wait time was a bit longer but that's just because she does not rush and takes the time needed with each patient. Happy to make her my new primary care physician.
Dr. Babbin is easy to talk to and thorough and it's great to be able to combine yearly appointments. Happy I found her!
She is great but the waiting was not great unfortunately.
Very knowledgeable and easy-going during my visit. Was willing to answer any questions and the staff escorted my child and I right away.
This was a waste of time and money. She could not help with the issue and just referred someone else. Such a waste of time.
This doctor says she treats ADD/ADHD but she doesn't. A total waste of money and time!!!!
Great staff, friendly and efficient, and Dr.Babbin takes her time to answer questions and has wonderful bedside manner.
Dr. Wincek was wonderful. She was thorough, listened to my concerns and had a great bedside manner. I had the appointment on my lunch break and I was late too, so I was concerned about wait time. I really appreciated that I was in and out in under an hour without being rushed at all.
Dr. Wincek was fantastic in our appointment and continues to be as I've had questions about the new medication I'm taking. She was very kind and professional in our appointment and very through with all the questions she asked. She has also been very responsive with the questions I've continued to throw her way after the appointment. They have a great online portal you can use to stay in touch which makes the whole process so easy. I couldn't be happier to have found such a good doctor in the city.
Very helpful and thorough. Got into appointment quickly even as a new patient
Dr. Wincek was extremely friendly, thorough, smart, and professional. The best doctor I've found in years!!! She even called me personally to discuss my blood test results. I'm so happy to have found an awesome doctor!!!
Dr Wincek (now Dr. Babbin) is a great MD! She stays up to date on the latest medical science to ensure that she's not over-prescribing or over-testing when such things are unnecessary. She's also very attentive to all of your concerns and gives thorough consideration to your possible symptoms. She's pragmatic, efficient, and has great bedside manner. I'd recommend her to anyone!
Dr. Wincek is always very efficient, asks lots of questions, and promptly deals with all of your concerns. She's really nice and patient. The wait time has always been quick. The patient portal is also super helpful!
Dr Wincek takes the time to discuss all of your thoughts and concerns. You never feel rushed at appointments. The portal is also great as it allows you the ease and flexibility to write an email for non urgent matters and get a response within 24 hours (at least in my experience)
I highly recommend Dr. Wincek as a primary care physician. During my first visit, she really took the time to get to know me and my health, which I appreciated. She was very thorough, thoughtful and kind. She listened to my concerns and helped educate me on my condition and treatment options. You can tell she is the kind of doctor that wants to build long-lasting relationships with her patients. I will definitely be going back to her for annual exams and any other health and wellness needs. She's exactly what you want in a PCP!
This was the best office I've had the pleasure of visiting in Chicago. I recently had to transfer PCP's due to an insurance change at my work. I was recommended to Dr. Wincek and I couldn't be happier with the change. Everyone from the front office employees, to the nurses, to Dr. WIncek herself were accommodating, caring, and most importantly helpful. I came to the clinic a little early, filled out the new patient information and was immediately taken back for vitals; 15 minutes early! I was treated with respect and I felt that my needs and anxieties were handled promptly. Dr. Wincek was then in within minutes. She took the time to get my history and was honest great about checking in on other things besides the reason for my visit. I felt very comfortable even though I don't love being in a doctors office environment. She assessed the reason for my visit and also called my attention to another health concern that I should keep track of and monitor (with her help!). I'm very appreciative for her time and am incredibly grateful that I was pointed in the direction of Dr. WIncek and this clinic. She is a top notch doctor in my books! I would recommend Dr. Wincek to anyone looking for a new PCP or to anyone thinking about a change. 10/10!
The staff was wonderful and got me right in. And Dr. Wincek really understood my symptoms and diagnosed me with full understanding. Then I had lots of questions and she answered them all. (And I know I asked a lot of questions and it was really sweet of her to sit and chat with me.)
I always feel seen and heard after I meet with Dr. Babbin. She's kind and listens well which I feel like not all doctors do. She's wonderful and will continue seeing her!
Very polite and well rounded. Wasn't afraid to admit that she (and other doctors) don't know everything, and therefore did not send me on a wild goose chase or make terrible recommendations based on her lack of ability to explain my symptoms. It's nice to meet an honest and friendly MD in the ever greedy, dark industry it has grown into.
Very helpful, knowledgeable and patient! Am happy to recommend her to anyone!
Dr Wincek has been my favorite PCP so far. She's very relatable and always has good advice and knowledge.
She was very knowledgeable and detailed. I felt comfortable with her and she gave great advice on ways to improve my diet and health. I look forward to having her as my physician
She was very kind and friendly. Seemed knowledgeable as well!
Dr. Wincek was great! She went through my whole health background and family history. Very friendly and offered great advice. I feel very informed and confident about my health.
Dr. Wincek is personable and efficient. She is easy to talk to and promotes positive and healthy lifestyle choices through honest and concise conversation. She is a great primary care doctor!
Asked many relevant questions and documented the answers well. Easy to talk to and very good at explaining the conditions I was experiencing and the process of recovery. Printed materials for me and made all necessary referrals to specialists. One of the best doctors I have ever visited.
For the first time in my adult life I feel like I have a doctor who is really willing to listen and not judge. She did not rush through our meeting, she double checked things like my blood pressure reading when they didn't seem right, she was proactive about referring specialists where appropriate, and she was willing to order a test that I asked her to perform rather than treating me like a hypochondriac just because I have some health concerns. Doctors normally make me extremely nervous but she put me at ease.
Dr. Wincek is a nice and friendly doctor. Unfortunately, her staff, especially the receptionists, are nothing like her - they're rather unprofessional. You also have to expect long waits.
Dr. Wincek is very thorough with the patient and very helpful as well. Great experience!
I had an excellent experience with Dr. Wincek. Her staff was friendly, and I never felt rushed with any of them. Dr. Wincek did a great job of getting to know me and listening to my concerns. I highly recommend this office to anyone looking for a doctor!
She was very nice and attentive.
I feel like Dr. Wincek really gets my lifestyle. She's able to recommend ways to be healthier without making me feel awkward or embarrassed. As long as I live in Chicago, I'll never see another PCP :)
She is a wonderful doctor, she is soft spoken and very personable. She makes you feel very comfortable and when choosing your GP I feel it is very important to be able to feel very comfortable in sharing any information you find necessary to share. Overall great bedside manner, I in know way felt rushed. She took time to listen to all of my concerns. I've been twice now and will continue to use Dr. Wincek as my primary physician!
Dr. Wincek was extremely attentive and spent a very long time getting to know me and my medical history. I look forward to visiting the office in the future.
Staff was super nice. Doctor had a lot of questions but wasn't bothersome at all. Overall good visit and will visit again if I need to see a doctor again.
She is one of the best, caring and listens carefully to the patient. She has a keen understanding of her art and craft. I am pleased to be a patient.
I am very pleased with how Dr. Wincek is getting me to focus on my health. Her calm and professional manner is outstanding.
Professional. Straightforward. Communicated clearly and effectively. I'll definitely be back.
Overall, it was a great experience that lead to successful treatment.
Dr. Wincek is a peach! She was kind and thorough and was very open to lots of treatment options. I loved knowing she was willing to listen to my opinions as well as give her professional advice.
Terrific experience. Definitely made the right choice.
Best doctor I have ever had. Keep up the great work.
Dr Wincek is lovely as her picture. Her staff and office are fairly good. I am guessing her style is good with children. She came off cold, condescending and really just wanting to check off boxes for the insurance. She spoke unbelievably slowly, at first it seemed like she was talking to me because she thought I was a child. But ultimately she seemed like a laggard. I didn't feel safe or cared for, just like she wanted to go through her list.
Pain free experience. The staff and the doctor were all very nice and personal. The front desk seemed a tad overwhelmed but otherwise everyone was competent. The doctor seemed to be knowledgable and addressed my issue thoroughly. I will be returning when needed. Thanks!
Dr. Wincek was very nice and thorough. Her receptionist had lots of issues while I was waiting for almost an hour. The only reason I will be returning is because of Dr. Wincek's kindness and passion as a doctor
She was very kind and welcoming. I enjoyed her and will return.
I did not have a good experience with this visit. My doctor recently moved away and I am on some ADHD medication that requires a prescription, so I needed to get it refilled. I had to take time off of work because there was no availability outside of working hours, and once I was there I had to wait for over an hour before being called back. When I was taken back I had to wait another half hour to see the doctor. I explained that my recent doctor had moved away and that I needed my ADHD prescription refilled but Dr. Wincek would not prescribe it to me until I saw a psychiatrist. I explained that I have seen three different psychiatrists who have recommended my medication and have been prescribed it by four other doctors, but she said she would prefer I do it again. Then she said I needed a heart scan before I could see a psychiatrist and told me to take off my shirt and she'd be right back. I sat topless on the table for another 20 minutes before she came back in a told me the machine was broken. She said that I would need to come in another day to have it done, THEN I could see a psychiatrist, THEN she could write me a prescription (which would amount to four separate visits and copays before I got my first prescription). She told me I would receive a call that night or the next morning to schedule the scan, but I never heard from them. The whole experience was a frustrating waste of time.
It was odd and it felt as she was questioning me and asking unnecessary questions.
Friendly, informative, & supportive. Office staff were helpful too.
Very professional and very kind. She was quite knowledgable about many different topics and made me feel at ease.
Dr. Wincek is professional, personable, and very good at what she does. She's thorough and always takes the time to answer the questions I have, so I understand what I need to know about my health. Would definitely recommend her!
Very friendly and very well educated. She is the best doctor I have had.
My wait in the waiting room wasn't very long, but I was waiting for an hour between the time when the nurse took my information and when Dr. Wincek saw me.
She was unfamiliar with basic drugs and overall very unhelpful.
She was very thorough and I really appreciated that. I've been rushed by doctors before and not been able to ask all of the questions I wanted to. She was great. Friendly, honest and I felt very comfortable talking to her. I will be back.
Very glad I found out about Doctor Wincek via ZocDoc. The care I had received at my previous PCP was nothing compared to this. She also takes the time to get a complete picture of your health, including family history, before your physical exam.
She is Brilliant.
Dr. Wincek actually took the time to sit down and talk with me about my health. She didn't rush the appointment, she didn't just turn to prescribing medications or treatments. It really felt like my appointment was tailored specifically to me, my concerns and my health! She is a great doctor!
receptionist and office manager having bad manners.
Dr. Wincek was welcoming, friendly and patient. She answered my questions thoroughly and took her time. This was the most at ease I have felt talking to a Dr. in a very long time. The receptionist was also very friendly and helpful and the office was inviting and clean.
Dr. Wincek was great. She takes time to sit down and discuss health and family history with you before beginning the exam, and takes notes on everything. She addressed all concerns I am having, and was very friendly and approachable.
After begin frustrated with the treatment I've received at urgent cares and other health care facilities in the area, Dr. Winvek's office experience was like a breath of fresh air. The staff was friendly, helpful and I'll definitely come back.
Dr. Wincek is professional and objective. She took her time with me so that I did not feel rushed. I feel great about my visit, and I will be staying with her as my doctor.
I'm sure Dr. Wincek is a competent medical professional. However, the circumstances surrounding my visit make it difficult to recommend her. First, I had to wait well over an hour to be seen. A nurse may have came in once during that time, but no attempt to explain the excessive wait period was made. Secondly, I scheduled the appointment for several reasons, which I listed on zocdoc. However, the nurse informed me that because of insurance-related guidelines, I had to choose which issue I wanted to address in that visit. Had I known this prior to the visit, I would have scheduled two separate appointments. Instead, I was forced to make an uninformed, on the spot decision about what type of care to receive. Finally, although Dr. Wincek seemed competent and apologized for the wait, she didn't seem overly invested in understanding or discussing my health concerns. Overall, I left feeling deeply dissatisfied with my experience and have no plans to return.
It was great, she was very, very thorough.
Dr. Wincek is very friendly and easy to talk to. She cares about your well being and wants to help you understand how important a healthy lifestyle is. I would highly recommend her as a primary care physician!
Dr. Wincek is fantastic! She was kind and thorough. Her office staff is terrific. She does a full Well Woman visit, with an annual phsyical and PAP test in the same appointment, which is so convenient. I would recommend her to anyone.
She was excellent. Very thorough and made me feel at ease. I would highly recommend.
She was very thorough and I really liked it!
Friendly and professional. Knowledgable and open. I was very comfortable with her expertise and found her easy to talk to and work with. Most importantly, I felt she took her time with me while I was there instead of rushing off to the next patient.
This doctor is simply great. She is very professional, kind, and knowledgeable. Moreover, she made sure to take all the time she need to ask me about my condition, and gave me all the time I need to ask questions. I would recommend her to anyone in heartbeat.
She was absolutely wonderful. She made me feel very comfortable and is absolutely my new MD.
Listened to all my needs and was extremely helpful to questions and concerns.
I've been trying to find an internist since I moved to Chicago and she was AMAZING!! A very friendly and informative doctor.
Great. Happy to have a regular doctor that was close by to where I live in Lakeview.
