Review of Dr. Arndt

-Bradley, IL |

My son was treated for venous TOS by way of a transaxillary rib resection by Dr. Arndt. We found him to be very personable and he explained the procedure in a way that was very understandable. We recently returned to his office for a follow up visit and x-rays, and it appears that the work he did was successful. My son now seems to be recovering quickly. I would highly recommend Dr. Arndt as a thoracic surgeon. I would also recommend Rush Medical Center for its excellent post-operative care.

Dr Chmielewski treated me for Esophagial Cancer...I was in great hands...he is one of the best and most compassionate Doctors I’ve ever had. I am alive and well because of him. And his assistant Hector M. is fantastic also.

Review of Dr. Liptay

- in Chicago, IL |

Menance to life No empathy Interested in $$$$ only Poor listener Works too fast Opinion of cardiac specialist: “...your thoracic anatomy is a twisted, mangled post-surgical cluster.” Time spent? 45 minutes. International standard for full pneumonectomy? 1-2 hours. Addtionally, he BISECTED 9 lymph nodes for biopsy. Gold Standard? RESECT nodes for biopsy. He left my node tissue in a state of necrosis. He has clinical habit of repeatedly looking at wrist-watch illustrating: Rush means rush at Rush.
