River Forest, IL Reviews


I visited this clinic earlier in the year for COVID testing & that experience was super quick & easy. But recently I’ve had to make a few consistent visits to receive follow-up care for stitches from a dog bite. The doctor that has been treating me has been very caring and informative. The rest of the staff has also been very pleasant and efficient. I definitely see myself coming back here for any urgent care needs. The variety of insurances accepted is also a major plus. Thank you for your great service, keep up the awesome work! I should also add that in my experience the wait time here is very minimal. The online registration & check-in process definitely helps to speed up the visit, I’m usually in & out within the hour!

The staff here is amazing! I went in for a maybe sprained ankle on Easter Sunday and each provider I saw was kinder than the next. The nurse practitioner I saw was confident in her diagnosis which made me feel confident as well and at ease. They were able to do an x ray that same day and I got my results on Monday. Only downside was that I had to wait 30 minutes to be seen, and would recommend scheduling an appointment online rather than walking in. Thank y’all for all that you do!!

We walked in without an appointment because my 2 year old needed a rapid COVID test to return to school after break. They were very busy, but every person I spoke to was so nice. The nurse understood how to handle a patient that would put up a substantial fight to avoid a nose swab. The NP was so so so good with him as well and she personally walked us over to the sticker/lollipop/treasure area and showered him with gifts. We will definitely be back.

This clinic in River Forest is the best. You can register online and select a time to be seen so you don't have to wait so long in the waiting room. Registering online saves you the time of filling out paperwork at the office. I was scheduled to be seen at 8:50 am and by 9 am I was taken into a room. The nurse was so efficient and asked thorough questions. The doctor that saw me was knowledgeable and very nice. She gave me a prescription for the hives I had and a prescription for my cold. Another nurse came in to take my blood and usually people have trouble finding my vein but she did it in less than 5 seconds. They were quick, efficient, knowledgeable, and overall very nice. The front desk ladies are also super friendly and made me feel welcome. I would highly recommend this clinic.

Amazing experience! At the time, my toddler daughter was feeling awful and we didn’t want to wait for walk-ins hours with our doctor the next day. I’d read that the Midwest Express Clinic had a great pediatrician but I was blown away! Our doctor’s name was Jasmine (didn’t catch the last name) and she was very kind and took her time while meeting my daughter. She spoke to my daughter with respect in that she asked her questions (instead of just me), she walked her through the check up, and even let her use the stethoscope. She was very thorough when explaining the diagnosis and next steps. The nurses were also amazing. They greeted her and she got stickers on the way in and the way out. If I ever need urgent care for my kids, I would not hesitate to return!
