This Northwestern pediatrics office is awful! The attending doctor that saw my son after birth misdiagnosed him with a condition that delayed him getting a circumcision (and costing us more money). Then the doctor during our first office visit sent our son to the ER and an unnecessary NICU stay for three days. Lastly, our last visit where we finally saw the doctor we were referred to (Lechman) was terrible. Dr. Lechman kept making cutting comments during my visit and was extremely rushed. I found him very unfriendly.

He has cared for my four children and has always been a top-notch doctor. When stuff goes bad he does get serious and he will give you his honest advice & care. He is really good with giving a diagnosis and I can’t say that for the other pediatricians that I’ve met when he hasn’t been in. My children are all adults now and they still wish that Dr. Lechman was their doctor.

Dr. Hwan is a knowledgeable and calm pediatrician. I appreciate him following up all the time about both of my children, and taking the time to answer all my questions and concerns (especially during these covid19 uncertain times). Thank you, Dr. Hwan! The nurses and staff are also very kid friendly, which is a nice environment.

He takes care of our 4 year old. Knowledgeable provider, always listens to your questions and clinic staff is nice and welcoming. Would recommend without hesitation.

He’s probably competent. He cared for our son for 4 years and nothing went seriously wrong. But avoid him. It’s not just his unpleasant manner, you can call “no-nonsense,” “gruff,” or “rude” depending on your spin. Rather, it is his unsolicited personal judgments. We stopped going to him because when he asked about educational plans, and we said we were still deciding, he responded with a condescending, judgmental sneer that he hoped at least we were not going to home school. This was grossly offensive and beyond the pale of professionalism. At the time (pre COVID), homeschooling was simply one of several options. It worked for me and some of my friends, as we are successful professionals, but it’s hardly for everyone. The bigger point is regardless of your view of the homeschooling, avoid Lechmann. He’s obviously comfortable injecting unsolicited, sneering personal judgment into medical care. It was homeschooling for me – it may be something else for you. Why tolerate that?

Dr. Downing has cared for both of our children from infancy. She is sensible and reasonable and I appreciate her approach to our child's care. Would definitely recommend.

Our two daughters (5 and 2 yrs) are patients of Dr Lechman. He is fantastic and I highly recommend him! He was extremely reassuring when we had our first child and were “new, nervous parents.” And he was the brilliant scientist we needed when our second daughter was born a preemie and initially had many challenges. His diagnosis, treatment plan & overall knowledge was unwaveringly spot on. He guided our daughter through some rough times with the proper care. She’s now thriving. He’s the best!

Terrible bedside manner, cocky, condescending, doesn’t listen thoroughly and pushes his own agenda. I would never recommend Dr. Martin to anyone I cared about.

Dr. Martin has been seeing my kids since my 1st born 8 years ago. I could not have picked a better doctor to care for my kids. He is an amazing doctor. His nurses are pretty nice also, The receptionists at the front desk are very friendly. I am happy with the care my kids are getting at Dr.Martin office.

Very practical, knowledgeable doctor that will "tell it like it is" and give parents a good sense of what works and what doesn't, what is worth worrying about, and the fact there is no one size fits all answer to raising a baby. Less touchy feely than some pediatricians, but we personally love his practical (even wryly funny) bedside manner and trust him implicitly with our son.

We have 3 children that have seen Dr. Lechman throughout the years, and for 17 years he has been our pediatrician. Dr. Lechman is a no non-sense Doctor that is straightforward with his thoughts when asked. I have read that he may come off as "snobby," but I have found him to be really nice. Perhaps people caught him on a bad day. In in 17 years and likely 100 interactions, he has been courteous, thoughtful and informative. Great Doctor and highly recommended.

Rude and discourteous to me & when looking over my child when we were in the hospital, after the Northwestern Hospital pediatricians punted us over to the pediatricians from my chosen pediatric office. Unfortunately, he was the one from the practice who had hospital duty for the day. He was rude and rushed and was more worried about himself and his schedule than caring for my son when there were a slew of doctors and nurses coming in and out of our room to see us before we left the hospital.

She's flippant & immature in her demeanor & bedside manner. Unfortunately, she was on duty at Northwestern Memorial Hosp. while my son & I were in postpartum recovery. She wrenched down on my poor little newborn's legs, to test his hips I would guess, sending him into hysterics. She wasn't flinched by it, didn't console him whatsoever, & manhandled him like a rag doll. She's young & clueless about how to respectfully & delicately handle my newborn while still doing her job. I was furious! ??

I'm coming to the age where I am transitioning to a physician specialized in adult care, but I highly recommend Dr. Rao. She is very experienced, knowledgable and kind and I trust her decisions as my doctor. Her office generally is easy to make appointments with and flexible with timing.

Brilliant Doctor. I have known Dr. Lechman before I had a child and wanted to make sure he was with us for the birth of our child. He has helped us manage our need for a tonsillectomy and our recent asthma issues. Such a kind man. You will not be disappointed.

My oldest of four children is now 19 years old, and Dr. Martin has been our pediatrician since her birth. I have always found him to be thorough and professional, and very personable. Especially as my children approached adolescence, he treated them in a way that they appreciated speaking with him.
