Review of Dr. Ghate

- in IL, IL |

Dr. Ghate is the BEST !!! He replaced both my knees ( 2017 & 2018) and the outcome could not have been better! He extremely knowledgeable, conscientious, kind and caring. I never asked him one question he did not competently answer. He knows his stuff and is worthy of your full trust. In addition his assistants, Heidi and Amanda are experts at what they do. All calls, concerns, questions answered with professionalism and kindness. I suggest you look no further...Dr. Ghate is THE BEST !!!!

Review of Dr. Carroll IV


I partially tore my left distal bicep tendon in January. Dr. Carroll accurately diagnosed the problem, explained the risks of surgery, and recommended more conservative treatment. He explained the mechanics of the injury and what I should and should not do to rehabilitate the arm as best as possible. Now, four months later, instead of being in painful post-surgical rehab, my left arm is 100% functional with no pain. Dr. Carroll gave excellent and practical treatment of a serious injury.

Review of Dr. Mirkovic

- in Culver IN |

I am walking and working today because of Dr. Mirkovic's expertise in spinal surgery. I have very little pain. He is incredibly kind and caring and so are his staff members. I'm an RN Director of Nursing and would highly recommend him to anyone needing back surgery. It takes me two and a half hours to get from my home in Indiana to his office near Northwestern Hospital in Chicago but it is worth the drive. I wouldn't go to anyone else. You only have one back. He's the best!

Review of Dr. Ghate

-Illinois |

Horrible bed side manner. I never had a doctor tell me that my knee coming out of the sock and the pain from it was all in my head and actually had to nerve to write the same in the charts of my medical records. I would never recommend this doctor to anyone. In fact I tell people don't go to him

Review of Dr. Carroll IV

- in Chicago, IL |

I had to cancel my surgery because his admin staff are too incompetent and rude to handle the basic functional aspects of running an office, and I don't have time to deal with repeated calls that I cannot return due to problems with the office phone system and receptionists who hang up on you. All this just to try to resolve the problem of a missing referral, which I brought with me to the first visit and staff declined.

Review of Dr. Mirkovic

- in Winnetka |

Dr. Mirkovic performed a discectomy and spinal fusion on me (neck). He came to me well recommended by other doctors and he was absolutely fantastic, both in personal interactions and in the surgery itself. I have had no complications whatsoever and the surgery was life altering.
