I cannot say enough about the staff from top to bottom at Innovative Express Care. I have been coming here for four years and have referred my clients, friends, and family. Throughout the years as they have grown, there has beenone common denominator and that is how compassionate and genuinely caring the entire team has been. They get you in quickly, take time with you when you need it, and help you to navigate whatever area of health you need help with.

This was the best medical / doctor experience I have had in Chicago - and i've been living here for 5 years. Everyone was very kind and understanding and the doctor was very knowledgeable. The center itself is serene and calm,very far from a doc-in-the-box I was expecting. I will definitely be returning.

I enjoyed the new age approach to the clinic - it's modern, there's some parking, available coffee while you wait, easy intake (via online forms prior to visit - though not all info was correctly transferred, per an associate). The practitioners/ providers were super friendly and professional - they listened, asked the right questions, and got me the services I asked for. This was my first visit, but I'm thinking I found my new regular clinic.

It didn't feel like the Dr. who saw was really willing to engage with me or explain much of what was happening. It seems as though their focus is on being prompt but not thorough.

The visit in itself was good but the waiting time was too long. I will never go back again. An HR is too long a wait time first to see a doctor then to wait for doc to come.

Waiting room and actual rooms were very clean. Staff was very professional.l and knowledgeable. I did not have to wait a long time to be seen by the doctor. Also received x-rays that happened right away and I got the results almost inmediately. Would definitely recommend to others!

I booked the appointment for the PCP but instead got an urgent care provider. This is the second time I made an appointment with the PCP and got someone else attending to me. I was not ready for the extra paymentI might be charged because I met with the urgent care providers.

I had a cold and they made me wait 1 hour with an appointment and then charged me an absurd amount for a first time patient fee for a 15 minute consultation to get couch syrup. It was supposed to be in network. Ludicrous.

Worst experience ever. Never coming back to this center. I had to wait for 1hour before seeing someone even if I had an appointment. The doctor order an MRI that I did two days later. I made sure they received theresults and they never called me back. I had to wait for 3 weeks. Calling every day to try to speak with a physician. They obviously don't care about patients.

WOW! Complimentary coffee. Casual yet vibrant office. Personable staff. A new diagnosis can be overwhelming and they made sure I understood all about the recovery and repeat the medicines instructions as may times as I needed. What a gem! I have never been more confident after a doctors visit!

I was in an exam room for a long time (at least an hour in total). I just had a small ankle problem that I wanted examined and X-ray'd. It seems like they forgot about me and what they needed todo next for which patient. There was a slight miscommunication over which exam room had "the ankle guy" and whether or not he needed an X-ray, even though the doctor said "we'll try to get you an x-ray as soon as possible." I overheard their confusion while waiting in the exam room, which, I was in there for quite some time.

I was not seen by Rahul, I was seen by Mark. My experience was absolutely amazing though. I needed a few things addressed, including vaccines and medications for an upcoming international trip. I was treated with respect and all of myquestions were well answered. Hands down best patient care I've had.

Really satisfied with my initial visit, as I will have a few follow ups planned. The doctors are very professional, polite, and were responsive to my medical needs. I would definitely recommend them, especially for those with difficult schedules, as they're able to accommodate nearly any day of the week!
