Doctor is wonderful. However, between being brought in the room and undressing and being seen by the doctor, I had to wait around 45 minutes. That's 45 minutes of being half naked and cold. Feel like it shouldn't be like that.
A very strong first impression. I was increasingly unhappy with my OBGYN of 10 years, but too scared to make a change. Happy I found Dr. Lisa. She seems well informed, empathetic, and really took time to listen to my concerns and explain options.
Lisa spent a good amount of time with me, thoughtfully answering my questions and giving me time to explain my issues. She had good advice for me and I felt very comfortable with her.
Dr. Brunengraber was great! She asked what questions I had regarding my health and gave me honest answers about what would work best for what I want out of my life. She was very personable and professional.
She is great. Procedurally with the office, the info I submitted online didn't go through and I had to do it again at the office. I also had to wait 30 min. But the doctor herself and the nurse were warm and knowledgable.
Really appreciated Dr. Brunengraber's thoughtfulness and professionalism - it's taken me a long time to find a good OB and I finally have!
Asked questions and listened to what I had to say. Very personable!
Dr. Lisa was very kind, sympathetic and knowledgeable. She spend enough time to talk and answer all questions and didn't rush the appointment. I highly recommend this doctor.
She is a wonderful professional Doctor.
She was really friendly and certainly made me feel comfortable the entire time. I'd definitely recommend her to others.
Wait time was extremely short, everyone working in the office including Dr. Brunengraber was very nice and professional. Dr. Brunengraber's bedside manner was very professional but lax, she's easy to talk to and made the experience as pleasant as possible. I'd definitely recommend this office and doctor.
She was great! I definitely recommend going to Dr. Brunengraber if you are in need of a doctor
The reception area is nice and we were shown into the doctor's office pretty quickly. Everyone was professional. The nurses were so delightful and made my son feel comfortable and at-ease. Of course, shots are a different story! We left feeling like our questions were answered. I will definitely bring him back here.
Personable and informative.
Aside from the nature of the visit, I would recommend Dr. Lisa. I did have to wait 10-15 minutes after my scheduled appointment time before seeing her. Despite that, Dr. Lisa was very nice, answered my questions, and the appointment was relatively quick.
Dr. Lisa was really personable and friendly. I'm so pleased that I found her. Everyone's reviews definitely helped me make my decision
Very nice doctor!
I thought Dr. Brunengraber was fantastic. She came in to chat with me first before beginning the exam, and answered any questions I had. I was also in and out in about 45 minutes - which was much faster than I anticipated as a new patient.

Doctor was great. Receptionist (I believe named Ariana) was rude and unprofessional.
I immediately felt comfortable with Dr. Bruengraber. She is so sweet and relatable and assured me that she will take the best care of me and my baby. Considering I had my visit appointment at just 5-6 weeks I am already at a great start for my pregnancy. The nurse Linda was really nice and I felt at home.
Doctor Brunengraber was great. I was really nervous about my visit because I'm not crazy about Gyno's and have had bad experiences, she was very easy going and explained everything I needed to know. I look forward to her being my doctor through my pregnancy.
She was so great and knowledgeable in getting my through my pregnancy + post-partum care. I would recommend her to anyone.
This was my first visit and it was very satisfactory. Dr. Brunengraber was very cordial and knowledgeable. She was also very patient in answering all my questions. I would also like to mention her assistant, Christina. She was also very polite and patient. She answered all my questions very patiently before the doctor came and attended to me.
I am new to the city, so was looking for a gyno in the city that takes my insurance. Dr. Lisa was wonderful to work with and answered all my questions. I felt very comfortable with her, and will continue to go to her!
The nurse who saw me beforehand made me nervous but when I saw Dr. Brunengraber she made me feel much more at ease.
Very friendly and patient. Great bedside manner. Highly recommended.

Dr. Brunengraber was wonderful. She made me feel really comfortable and was super attentive. She listened to everything I said, and then offered a solution to every issue I talked about. I will be keeping her as my OBGYN.
Lisa has been my doctor for a little over a year, and she is honestly the gold standard. She clearly explains everything she is going to do, and patiently and helpfully fields all of my questions. I struggled for some time to find a birth control pill that works for me, and she presented all of my options clearly. I trust her completely and am so glad to have found such a great doctor. Highly recommend!!
Lisa is very nice, lovely person. She is knowledgeable about my concerns and answered all my questions.
She was attentive and responded to questions with advice on options to try.
Dr. Brunengraber is fantastic. She's friendly and takes the time to discuss options in a way that instills confidence. I had a small issue with her office needing to submit forms to my insurance but it's been cleared up.
Look no further for an amazing ob/gyn. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Dr. Lisa. She takes the time to listen to your concerns, provides a wealth of knowledge, and makes you feel as though she has all the time in the world for you. Her staff is incredibly friendly and very professional. I've never waited longer than 10 minutes, she is always very prompt.
Dr. Brunengraber was friendly and professional. Her staff helped me get settled as a new patient, and I was in back with a nurse within ten minutes. I would highly recommend this doctor and her team!
She listened to me! A sure sign of intelligence & professionalism.
First doc to actually find the cause of a long-standing problem. I'll be back for sure.
The visit with Dr. Brunengraber was very professional and stress free. She made me feel very comfortable and addressed all of my questions.
I was brought to me room within 5 min of arriving to the clinic. Dr. Brunengraber was able to see me within 10 of speaking with the nurse. She was easy to talk to and very professional. I felt like she was very knowledgeable and clearly explained her diagnosis and treatment options. I would highly recommend her.
She was very kind and down to earth and she listened to my problems no matter how trivial they were. She also explained everything slowly. ( didn't zoom past explanations like some doctors do)
I highly recommend her. She is very professional and knowledgeable. Easy to make an appointment, no need to wait for long time. When I called and left a message, she always call me back as soon as possible.
She was terrific- thorough and took so much time to answer all of my questions. Highly recommend
She made me feel very comfortable and she was very knowledgable!
I moved from Indiana to Chicago and I needed a new primary doctor because mine is to far from me. This was my first time ever visiting the office and from the moment I stepped in, I felt welcome. Dr. Lisa is amazing and she also gets right to the point. Love her and I will be making her my new primary doctor..
Dr. Brunengraber was excellent! She was truly apologetic for my 40 minute wait. She introduced herself as Lisa, which made me feel so at ease. I never felt rushed, despite the fact that it was getting late in the evening. Dr. Brunengraber was genuinely invested in learning about my current health status, as well as any previous health issues. She made me feel like we were on the same level and talked to me like a real person. Wonderful!
I am not sure if it was Dr. Brunengraber or Northwestern policies, but I felt like I was in a factory on a production line. I got everything checked roboticly and wasn't personal at all.
Lisa was amazing! She answered all my questions and definely worked with me on all the things I needed all while being respectful of my needs. I would recommend anyone go to her!!!
The best doctor I ever seen :)
I did have to wait about 45 minutes past my appointment time to be seen by the md but when I was seen I understood why. Dr brunengraber took her time and listened to me compassionately. She did a thorough examsnd is doing everything she can to get to the root of my problem. It is so nice to have a dr who is both well educated and compassionate
Dr. Brunengraber made me feel really comfortable. I didn't feel like she was in a rush. She took the time to answer any questions that I had. The office staff and nurses were also incredibly friendly and professional.
she is very grate doctor.
Easily the best OB I've ever been to--I'm really uncomfortable discussing these sorts of topics and she made me feel incredibly normal and comfortable--additionally, she was very patient with me and is all around a very pleasant person. Highly recommend.
Great doctor- she made me feel extremely comfortable. It's so important to find a doctor that is a good fit and I feel like anyone would be lucky to be a patient of Dr. Brunengraber. If you live in Streeterville/Gold Coast/River North the location is super convenient. Please remember to bring a printed copy of your insurance card. I go through aetna insurance and they usually provide a digital copy so I had to pull it up and e-mail it to the office- which can be time consuming if you're trying to visit and only have a limited amount of time.
Had an 8AM appointment, arrived on time and i was seen right away. Office is very nice and clean. Front Desk staff was friendly and helpful. Nurse staff was friendly. Dr. Brunengraber herself was very friendly and I felt very comfortable being open with her. Overall, I had a great experience and I will definitely keep going back to Dr. Brunengraber.
It was excellent! Very nice, told me everything she was doing and made me feel very comfortable
Simply put, she is the best and despite moving, should we get pregnant again, we will travel to wherever she is practicing just to have her as our doctor. No one sweeter, smarter, more caring, understanding, or personable. Just a great all around experience and a magician with the actual labor. You will feel safe and go through the entire process with complete confidence.
The staff were very nice the doctor was very interested in making sure that I get the treatment that I need to get better I would highly recommend her to any one that is looking for an ob-gyn doctor
The doctor was great, very nice and professional. Took the time to ask questions and make me feel comfortable. The office staff was questionable however. I could hear them talking about patients from another room - which is not professional.
Dr. Brunengraber was extremely friendly and patient with me. This was my first appointment so she made sure to thoroughly ask about my medical past. She made me feel comfortable and offered me advice. I would absolutey recommend her to anyone!!
She was awesome. Professional. Pleasant.
She was very kind, informative and professional. I will certainly be visiting her again.
The first traits that come to mind when I think of Dr. Lisa are Friendly and Thorough. She spent a lot of time with me and was interested in all aspects of my health, not just the condition I was concerned about. I left her office with renewed interest in taking care of me after years of taking care of my children.
This was my first time seeing Dr. Brunengraber and she was really nice and really informative. The lady at the front desk was super nice and friendly
Lisa was very helpful and very friendly! Will go back again for my next appointment.
She was very nice and sweet, no wait time, knew her stuff.
She was great, friendly and very attentive.
This is a large practice and I had a complicated issue that required personal attention - which I did not receive here. My phone calls were not returned and when I did speak to a nurse they were rude. Dr. Brunengraber was fine during appointments, so it is not a problem with her but with the practice in general. After 3 trips, I will not be returning. I get better care at the local clinic.
She was wonderful and very knowledgable. I felt very comfortable and she answered all of my questions and exceeded al expectations. Thank you
