    "Following my appointment with Doctor Regina Belmonte, I was confident of several things. After a week search on internet and discussions with a few colleagues at work, I knew she was an excellent choice. Within minutes of examination, Doctor Belmonte relieved me of some of the problems, and continued on with thorough diagnostic procedures for the other symptom. Doctor Belmonte ensured I had contacts for the office, who were pleasant and efficient. She sent home a patient ready to face anything with her as my Doctor. I highly recommend her, boy does she know her stuff. :)"

    "I transferred to this practice at 32 weeks pregnant and was under the care of Dr. Friedell. I had a very normal pregnancy up until labor where a few complications arose. Dr. Friedell and his team made me feel so safe and cared for during a pretty stressful time. Our son was born via cesarean after a 40 hour labor and Dr. Friedell did a wonderful job during the surgery. The scar is healing beautifully. I truly feel like a part of the family at this practice and I am so thankful to have found such a wonderful doctor when I moved to Chicago late in my pregnancy."

    "Dr. Friedell has been my doctor for a decade. He is now our provider as we prepare for our first child. Dr. Friedell is highly skilled, very compassionate and quite humorous. Through numerous issues over the years, he has always taken the time to ensure that I was well-cared for and healthy - even when it means calling me on a weekend. When a potential complication arose, Dr. Feldstein saw me same day and was so caring as we were quite nervous. I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Friedell and Dr. Feldstein!!"

    "My husband and I welcomed our first child in January 2018. Dr. Friedell and all the office staff were extremely attentive and communicative all throughout my pregnancy, and though Dr. Friedell was my primary physician, I felt extremely comfortable with Dr. Wise on delivery day. We highly recommend!"

    "While the surgical procedure Dr. Friedell recently performed was not his "most challenging" of the day, he made me feel like the most important person in the world. He thanked me for allowing him and his staff to take care of me. He is a true professional with a heart of gold."

    "I'm extra satisfied from the service that I got here from the beginning when I made my first appointment for confirming my pregnancy, starting with the staff at the reception, during whole my pregnancy with all the nurses, lab technicians, and doctors that I met there...until my delivery at the Prentice Hospital!!! Amazing experience even though I needed to drive almost 50 miles for every appointment IT WAS WORTHED!I don't think that you can find better treatment somewhere else! I'm not changing these peoples!!!"

    "Worth the travel for Dr. Feldstein

    I come from the Far West suburbs for the expertise, care and kindness of Dr. Marc Feldstein. I trust in his expertise, compassion and professionalism. He takes the time to explain and comfortably share whatever the situation is with me. I appreciate his dedication and reassurance that he offers over the many years that I have been his patient. He is well worth the travel and I so appreciate him! "

    "Highly recommend this office for truly professional care

    I sought assistance from this office after experiencing severe complications as a result of a procedure performed by another doctor.

    I changed doctors and came to this office and saw Dr. Stanley Friedell. During my first visit and every visit thereafter, I was very well taken care of by him, his assistants and other staff. Dr. Friedell's demeanor was direct and he answered all of my questions. He was compassionate about the problem and walked me through what I needed to do to resolve the issue. He personally followed up with me by making phone calls at home which seems rare these days.

    I felt very comfortable and had full confidence in him and his nurses during the new procedure, follow up visits and everything that was involved during my recovery.

    I would HIGHLY recommend him and his office for anyone looking for professional and quality gynecology services. "

    "I have been coming to Dr. Friedell for many years. During my yearly visits, Dr. Friedell is not only very knowledgeable but also extremely patient, funny, and takes his time with me. He takes his time in reviewing my history and documenting my visit appropriately. I have never seen someone so dedicated to their line of work. My girls are now 7 and 6 years old and Dr. Friedell delivered both of them. Both times, he was coming back from a trip, and he got the call from the hospital while at O’hare – and both times, he came to the hospital to deliver my babies. He was absolutely great during delivery; so relaxed and walked me through everything. Great job to a great practice – Dr. Friedell as well as the remaining staff."

    "Great doctor!

    I am 57 years old and I have two adult children, so I have seen my fair share of gynecologists. I was referred to Dr. Friedell two years ago when I started to have some female problems. He is so much more than any other doctor in his field that I have ever been to. He has a way of explaining things so that you completely understand all your options. I was very impressed with his knowledge. He is honest and direct. He also has a wonderful sense of humor! "

    "I was recommended to NWWH through a friend after a year of unsuccessful IUI with my partner. We were seen and cared for by Dr. Friedell. Best decision ever. You will definitely wait for the doctor for maybe 30 minutes past your appointment time but you will not regret it. His thoroughness and patience to explain everything to us in a way we understood was amazing. He was quick to start a game plan for us. We will definitely stick with Dr. Friedell as our OB/GYN.

    Apart from Dr. Friedell, the staff was quick to perform any lab work and ultrasounds with friendly conversation and compassion. This type of service really helps when we've gone through a rough time trying to get pregnant. Definitely make an appointment with Dr. Friedell. "

    " I was referred to NW Women's Health Associates by my gynecologist when I received the wonderful news of being pregnant. At first, I was hesitant to continue seeing a doctor in the city because we live in the SW suburbs, so I was anxious about the possibility of getting stuck in traffic during labor. Well, all I can say is I am so glad I went to this practice and would even commute further to be treated by them if I had to. And by the time I was ready to deliver, the distance didn't bother me at all because of the sound plan the practice and I had in place.

    Over the course of the pregnancy, each encounter I had with my doctor, the other doctors in the practice, the front desk staff, nurses and lab techs has been professional and genuine. A few key points:
    • The practice is thorough in tracking and keeping your records. Nothing is worse than going to the doctor only to find out there is a lack of organization and collaboration within the practice. This will not happen here. They are on their game and it is hard to find that these days.
    • They take pride in their service. People who genuinely care about the job they do, and the satisfaction of their clients/patients, tend to go the extra mile - a common theme in this practice. These folks are straight shooters. You will not get the runaround with them. You can expect intelligent answers to all your questions and an open dialogue in each visit. You can expect a thorough check up each time and a thorough review of your history.
    • Reliability - As a first time mom, I had plenty of questions throughout my pregnancy about what to expect and what was normal. Every time I called the office, even if it was 2am, I received a call back promptly to discuss my concerns and always felt relieved after hanging up the phone.
    • Billing - I never had an issue with an invoice/balance. Not once. This is a rarity these days in the health care industry and was one less thing for me to worry about.
    • Partnership - One of my favorite attributes about this place is they treat their patients as "partners" in establishing the best customized plan for your care and in all decision making when things don't always go as planned (a likely story in L&D!). You will never be demeaned, brushed off, or left out throughout your care.

    All in all, I feel the health of myself and my beautiful baby has been in the best hands possible, and for that, I am forever grateful to have been treated by a wonderful team of doctors and staff. My husband & I truly consider them extended family, and look forward to being a long term patient! "

    "I have been going to Dr. Friedell for over a year now and he has been nothing less than amazing. When I first came to him to discuss pregnancy, he was incredibly informative and understanding. He was also willing to take the time to answer all of my questions and help in any way he could. He just delivered my son in March and to say he went the extra mile during delivery would be an understatement. I had some complications and with any other doctor I would have had a c-section. Dr. Friedell worked with me and was extremely patient and because of his care and expertise I had a successful vaginal delivery. I cannot recommend him highly enough! "

    " I have been going to this office for little over a month now due to some complications! I have been seen Dr Friedell, he is very caring and always made sure he answers all my concerns. I am beyond impressed with my experience with Dr Friedell and his PA "Amber". Dr Friedell called me many times after hours to talk to me about my medical results and answers any concerns that I have.

    I would highly recommend Dr Friedell. "

    "Excellent care. Dr. Stanley Friedell provides thorough, detailed, experienced care. He's delivered close to 9,000 babies! He has truly "seen it all." I was referred to him by a friend and stayed with him for my pregnancy and delivery because he made me feel taken care of in every way - and as a patient who was simply scared of getting pregnant and delivering a baby because of a tricky heart condition that means a lot. Sure, there might be times when your appointment time is not honored to the minute and you're left waiting BUT it's only because he is giving his time and attention to another woman who needs it and that you might need when it is your turn. A little bit of a wait is a small price to pay for top-notch, quality healthcare. He will ALWAYS make time for you. He calls his patients in the evening to talk about test results or questions you email to him that day. He knows what he's doing! Stan is to-the-point and will tell you exactly what's going on and what you need to know and answers questions before you have even thought of them. He once told me "don't go home and google this" knowing that I would. The office is no bells and whistles but is definitely a well-oiled machine. The nurses are knowledgeable and patient. A special shout out to the Nurse Practitioner, Amber and the Leann the ultrasound tech. They are also incredible at their jobs and take excellent care of their patients. I also have a serious thing with needles and when I explained to him that I'd need to lay down for the blood work I heard him step out and be sure his staff knew that I was to lay down and to stay there for as long as I needed. I have recommended him to my sister, my closest girlfriends and even strangers! There is no one else I want to take care of my sister and best friends than Dr. Friedell. He stayed late at the hospital to deliver me (when I know he had a family commitment that night) and I know he's done the same for other patients. The nurses at Prentice knew him by name and spoke of him kindly. There aren't enough positive things I could say about Dr. Friedell. "

    " Dr. Friedell has been my gynecologist for many years and I have always found him to be friendly, informative, professional and quite literally a lifesaver. I had unknowingly had cancer. I had a strange symptom that other doctors had not been able to diagnose and Dr. Friedell nagged me to IMMEDIATELY get a mammogram that was the start in diagnosing my disease. I had treated my symptom casually, but he picked up on a problem and I am now in remission.

    He is very busy and because he is dedicated, he will sometimes return a call at 9:30 at night rather than let me worry all night. He is a wonderful doctor and a terrific, caring person. His nurses have always been top-notch. I wouldn't switch for all the chocolate at Fannie Mae. "

    " I love Dr. Feldstein. As you can imagine, a visit to the OBGYN is generally not a pleasant thing. I went through a string of horrible OB's before finding Dr. Feldstein, and he is by far the best.

    He goes out of his way to make you feel comfortable and thoroughly explain what he's doing. He also speaks to you like a normal person, not in that condescending tone that many doctors seem to be big fans of.

    My only complaint would be parking, but as his office is downtown, there's not much I can do about that!

    All in all, I'm a huge fan of Dr. Feldstein. He definitely knows his stuff! "

    " I had a great experience with Dr. Friedell. He was given my case in late December/early January, and had scheduled a pre-op visit and tentative surgery date in early January. I made several trips to the office, but he was helpful in finding previous ultrasounds and made sure we were proceeding correctly prior to surgery. My surgery at Prentice went smoothly. I definitely pleased with the care I have received. "

    "Dr. Friedell has been my doctor for about 15 years now. Coming here from NYC years ago, I was very nervous about who to choose for my first pregnancy, yet my sister-in-law raved about Dr. F, therefore I knew I should be in good hands. 2 children later (each child not interested in making an on time appearance and Dr. F handling that expertly), at 40 years old I found that I had fibroids, one giant, and they had to be removed by surgery.

    Dr. Friedell was very candid with me about my chances for robotic surgery vs incision. He was helpful explaining all of my options and the pros and cons of each. I interviewed one of his pharma reps who told me if she ever had surgery she would go to him. Last Tuesday I had a very successful robotic surgery that he performed. He knew that I had a new job and vacation planned and that I was very focused on having robotic surgery vs a larger incision (longer recovery time).

    I feel great. I am up and walking 2 miles a day less than a week later. Everything is working! I would recommend Dr. Friedell for my daughter when she is old enough to need a gyno. I trust him with my life and in return he's made my quality of life so much better for me. Thank you!

    I would also add that his staff are very professional and courteous. I was very nervous about the surgery and Ariana, his assistant, put me right at ease, talking me off of the ledge repeatedly. "

    " If you are new to Chicago or are just looking for a new physician, please make an appointment with Dr. Friedell. This is the first time in my adult life, that a doctor spent an hour with me going over my medical history, asking questions and documenting my history accurately. His assesment and subsequent surgery were all done t a T! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him or his staff. I have had very positive experiences every time I've gone and I always leave feeling like I've been really seen and heard. "

    " I love Dr. Feldstein. He is an absolutely amazing doctor. Because of his careful concern and persistence, we were able to detect & remove precancerous cells from my cervix without any side effects. I have had normal test results for over 2 years now. He is always willing to answer any questions I may have and has worked through many difficult times with me with the utmost sincerity. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone. "

    "I have been a patient of this practice for over 5 years now and have only positive reviews of Dr. Feldstein. He was the doctor on call and delivered my third son without any complications. He was knowledgeable, patient focused and went above and beyond to answer my questions and provide a safe and healthy delivery. I also want to note his positive bedside manner to not only my husband and I, but to the nursing staff that was working with him. He was very respectful and I am very thankful to have had him for my delivery. I would recommend this group, Dr. Feldstein in particular without reservation. "

    " I have been a patient of Dr. Feldstein's for more than 16 years - thru 3 live births and 3 miscarriages. He has always been compassionate, professional, knowledgeable and I feel completely comfortable discussing any issue without embarrassment. He is straight forward with information and i always appreciate his honesty. When I go in for my yearly, I feel like I am going to see an old friend as he is always warm and interested in what's going on with me and the 3 boys he delivered. I never even looked for a new doctor when I moved to the suburbs because I wanted the best and I had already found it. "

    "I have been to Dr. Roth for regular check-ups. I really like her. I had a lot of questions about some past problems I had and she took the time to really listen and answer my questions. She has a very calm manner, almost cool. I thought she seemed very competent and was a good listener. "


  • Rating : 5
    "Dr. Roth is simply the best. She is thorough and caring. I had serious health issues and she went above and beyond. If I were rating the whole office, the rating would not be high. The other staff are not very helpful and don't return phone calls at times. They seem unorganized and unprofessional. "

    " I switched to Dr. Roth mid pregnancy due to health insurance reasons and it was probably the best decision I have ever made in my life. She is definitely warm and funny but also extremely competent and knowledgeable. I would say what makes her stand out from other doctors is how calm and not reactive she is in even the most dire situations. My son was in serious fetal distress (unexpected and not preventable) and she was very calm and reassuring as we literally ran to the OR for my c-section. With the rise of c-sections today, I feel Dr. Roth is one of the few remaining fabulous ob's that truly plans for normal vaginal births (your choice if you want an epi or not) and although I needed a c-section I knew it was truly necessary. I could not speak more highly of her, not only did she save my son’s life but she made me feel safe, secure and empowered even when decisions and actions were out of my hands. "

    "I've been going to Dr. Belmonte since 2000 (at least). She delivered my 1st child and she has been awesome the entire time I've been a patient. Just like Andrea R., it is hard to get an appt but it's well worth the trip. I've been to Dr. with my son & they rush you through the exam. Dr. Belmonte takes her time & answers all the questions you can think of. She's the best.

    I was referred to her by my god mother who works at Northwestern & I've been satisfied from day one.

    Dr. Belmonte you're the best! ~M "

    " I really like Dr. Belmonte. She is warm and funny, which is a nice change from a lot of the doctors I've seen in the past. Her exams are efficient so your time isn't wasted, but she definitely will take the time to sit down with you and discuss any concerns that you're having with your gynecological health. "

    " Dr. Sharon Wise is awesome! She has been my ob/gyn for 3 ½ years, since I moved to Chicago, She was recommended to me by an MD friend of mine (who was a patient of Dr. Wise’s and saw her throughout her pregnancy). She is a straight shooter. She takes time out to talk to you! By my second visit I found out I was pregnant. She has since delivered ALL my babies (3) including my twins who arrived early! "

    " I live in Indiana & called the referral line & my 1st visit I was so glad to have found such a friendly Dr. who explains everything thoroughly & takes the time to answer any ?’s. I needed a procedure done which I didn’t want done br Dr’s around me & that is why I went to Chicago. She explained it, & even a couple days before I called about a ? thinking a nurse would all back & the Dr. did herself & didn’t act in a hurry. I don’t do well having anything done in hospital because of a major brain surgery years ago & told her. She said not to worry, it would be ok. That a.m. when she came in & asked how I was doing I started crying. She sat on the bed & was so nice saying everything will be fine (then she told the anesthesiologist to put med in IV which worked right away). To see anyone say she has not bedside manners is crazy, she is the best Dr. & makes you feel very comfortable going to her. "

    "I just had my first appointment with Dr. Wise, and I'm very happy with the outcome. She was appropriately concerned about all of my concerns, making suggestions in some cases, but reassuring me in others. I thought her bedside manner was great, and I especially appreciated how much time she was willing to spend chatting with me. I will definitely continue to see Dr. Wise. "
