    My experience with Dr. Elterman was absolutely awesome. He diagnosed my problem quickly and precisely, and he did not leave anything to chance. He and the staff were always very friendly, they could precisely answer any question I had and always made me feel comfortable. The cure was also very effective, and the problem was completely addressed in a pretty reasonable time. I would highly recommend Dr. Elterman and Rush.

    He is the best doctor in urology. I have visited him after visiting 4 other doctors. I had prostate enlargement and some other issues. After my 3 visit I got my test result on 22 which is 15 is the average for my age. From prostate enlargement to perfect result proofs how great doctor he is. Thank you again Mr Elterman. You are the best doctor ever.

    We are extremely happy with Dr. Elterman's bed side manner. He's been keeping my husband alive for the last 15 years. He always says that my husband is like his own grandpa (my husband is 89 years old). Dr. Elterman is the only doctor I know who answers all his emergency calls himself. He does not employ an answering service. We can reach him 7 days a week (evening and weekends). He is an unbelievable doctor!!!

    Dr. Elterman takes the Hippocratic Oath quite seriously. He is very professional, respectful and truly cares how you are emotionally as well as physically. The practice is up to date technologically, yet still maintains that Old Time physician house call feeling.

    I went in for a standard removal of stage 0 polyps of the urinary bladder and Dr. Lev Elterman not only punctured a hole in my bladder but also did not diagnose the perforation over the duration of 4 weeks of agony as urine was leaking out into the abdominal cavity!!!. Dr. Elterman missed classic signs of a perforation and persisted with his diagnosis of hyper reaction of the bladder. I have survived only because I went to another hospital and another doctor saved my life!!!

    I scheduled an appointment with his Skokie office. Went in on the day of the appointment and was told because I didn't use credit cards, I would not be able to see him. So, people that prefer to only use cash/check are penalized. I guess this doctor is more interested in making money than helping people.
