This was my very first time visiting Oak Street Health. It has been running smoothly since I chose to switch medical clinics and doctors. They are so professional but yet it's a comfortable feeling. From scheduling my appt to picking me up it's been a great experience I haven't experienced before. L is exceptionally detailed and seems concerned for each individual. Glad I made the switch. I would definitely recommend them to family, friends or even a stranger.
