Review of Dr. Pinnello

-

I saw Dr Pinnello 2xs. 1st visit he took xrays, discussed my mild arthritis, further testing, and posibililty autoimmune issue. He educated me on RA due to multiple joint pain and told me to find a RA Dr. but will treat me for possible carpal tunnel. The 2nd visit he ?'d one of my meds and I told him I suffer from depression /anxiety /bipolar. Everything changed in that moment. He told me that my mind controls my pain, the placebo affect, etc. In other words, I'm not really feeling pain, it's all in my mind. etc. Then, he suggested I change my anti-depressant. I told him I see a P Dr., that I'm on a cocktail of meds and I have been treated successfully for the last 30 years. I'm not a newly diagnosed depressed person who's amplifying her pain to get pain meds I'm lookin for answers. I made a point to tell him this but it didn't mater, his mind was made up. I walked out feeling humiliated, angry, and frustrated. Shame on him for treated a patient so carelessly and beware new patients!

Review of Jeffrey Watkins

- in Oswego, IL |

This facility is very effecient and fast paced, Dr. Watkins takes pride in educating patient's with their xrays and treatment. They do tend to take you back if paperwork is not completed but they do not rush you to complete them. Dr. Watkins is very thorough with his care, very busy doctor that is for sure. I have no complaints and i reccomend him for any foot problem. If no appointments are available they do try their best to accommodate his patients.

Excellent care from Dr. Saleem. He took the time to listen, examine, treat, and explain my condition. I cannot have had a better experience at the doctors office.

I would never recommend this doctor. He walked in saw the fracture told her if she was younger or athletic he would do surgery but since she not he won't. If had done his job she might be able to live her pain.

Review of Dr. Paras

-

I found Dr. paras to be very uncaring and disconnected. He left me to decide my next level of treatment. If I knew that, I never would have needed his services. He was quick to respond to a question I asked about the MRI report and responded that I shouldn't believe everything I read. What I didn't need was his sarcasm. I did need him to relay his understanding of the report. He just seemed to care very little for what I was experiencing and almost dismissive. Just one horrible experience.

Review of Dr. Pinnello

- in sandwich il |

Dr. Pinnello Has taken care of my knees for the past ten years. I have had 2 left and one right knee surgery from him , one of the best around and he will be doing my left knee replacement soon. Trust his decisions for he is conservative and does not jump into anything that is not well thought out.

Review of Jeffrey Watkins

- in Aurora, IL |

I would NOT recommend Dr. Jeffrey Watkins at Castle Orthopedics. He doesn't deserve one star! I took my 9 yr old daughter there after a MRI showed three metatarsal fractures. We weren't even done with the medical history before they called us back to the room. He came in, did a quick exam not reviewing the health history and said She doesn't have any fractures if she walked in this room He then proceeded to tell her to walk on her tippy toes. She tried. I pulled him aside and explained she ha
