Very unhelpful for chronic back pain. My wife was recommended to go to RIC by her OBGYN as her pregnancy added extra stain on her body due to an injury from a car accident long ago. According my wife's OBGYN "Dr." Christina Hynes is a specialist in pain during pregnancy, this could not be further from the truth. All of our consultations with "Dr." Hynes were met with awful bedside manner and it seemed like any questions my wife had were responded to with "Yeah, give that a try".
I was so nervous about my appointment with Dr. Fitzgerald, but my concerns were immediately put to rest. She was patient and took the time to listen and respond to my questions and concerns. I felt comfortable during my exam and trusted her diagnosis and treatment plan.
I left with a renewed sense of hope and confidence and look forward to the restoration of my body.
Dr. Brkic is a self-confident and extremely competent doctor. My husband was at RIC on the 10th floor for a month in late 2016 and we always felt we were in good hands with Dr. Brkic. He is compassionate and extremely knowledgeable about traumatic brain injuries and is very open to questions. He encourages families to be part of the healing process. He meets regularly with his team to discuss each patient, which is a philosophy at RIC that works wonders. We highly recommend him.
Very professional, and at the same time patient-centered doctor! Very knowledgeable and understandable of parents' concerns. We travel about an hour for our appointments with Dr. Gaebler, but it is absolutely worth it. We have seen a few specialists in Chicago in her area of specialty, and could not find a close match to her skills, expertise and kindness.
He made my 2 month hospitalization easier. Excellent communications, which is seldom the case with doctors. He was my constant advocate!
After a complicated recovery spanning more than 1 year I was sent to Dr. Hynes for a second opinion. She picked up something that several other doctors had missed that was the crucial missing piece regarding my slow progress. This changed the course of my treatment, pain and functioning for the better. I am very grateful for her help. She was insightful, empathetic and caring. I would not hesitate to recommend her to others.
