Careful listening makes Loop practice stand out
Barbara Flom says her experience with seeing Dr. Julie Brandies at Northwestern Memorial Physicians Group makes her more comfortable. “I’ve been going to her for 10 years, and I think the relationship gets better over time because she knows me better,” the South Loop member says. “She always makes sure I know what’s going on and never leaves me with things I wondered whether to bring up or not.”
Dr. Rachel Oosterbaan, who’s been with Northwestern for 14 years, says careful listening typifies the practice’s approach. “We all care about making the right diagnosis and listening to our patients, treating them with respect and treating the problem,” Oosterbaan says. “We want our patients to walk out feeling satisfied and well taken care of.”
She says the small details make a difference. “We make it a point to get back to patients immediately,” Oosterbaan says. “We’ve got a strong group of doctors who use the most appropriate methods for each person. Sometimes being a good physician is knowing what not to order, instead of ordering up a million tests.”
She adds that the practice and many of the doctors are active in community service: “Everyone’s involved themselves in different community efforts, whether it be education or outreach.”
