I was a patient of Dr. Amdur several years ago but had to stop going to her because the company I worked for changed insurance plans that covered every hospital in the city of Chicago but the Univ. of Chicago. When she was my Dr. she was great. I now have an insurance plan that will allow me to become her patient again and I can't wait. She's a wonderful Dr. Just great.
I had my first visit with Dr. Amdur about 2 weeks ago, I took a train and then walked 2 miles to her office (after feeling I was not getting complete care from my previous primary less than 10 minutes from my home over the past 38 years). It was worth the travel...within the first few minutes, I knew this caring, intelligent, and insightful doctor had to be the best thing that ever happened to me. She was careful to get my entire background, review it before I arrived, go over it in detail, and make recommendations--including suggested visits to other doctors and recommendations of scans and tests they might do...if they did not, I should come back to her and she would order them. I am sure she sent her recommendation to them as the other doctors immediately ordered such tests. Before I could even get those tests...I came down with a 102 fever the weekend before...went to ER (a 1 hour drive from my home to be in a hospital where all the doctors practiced--instead of the other suggestion which was to go to the hospital 7 minutes away, also, where I had been going for 38 years since my children were born). I emailed all physicians that I had recently seen...Amdur was the only one to stop in and see me at the hospital, to give me the results of my tests (a chest exray and 3 CT scans were done when I arrived in the ER...which I normally would have had 3 days later. I already had the test results from the attending physician, however, Dr. Amdur came as a visitor and wanted to make sure I knew the results and what they ment. Then she said she would hope to see me next week to check things out. Dr. Amdur's gracious visit was more than caring...
