Review of Dr. Tsimpas


I had an emergency removal of a brain tumor in April 2019. Dr Tsimpas put myself and my wife at ease prior to the procedure with his plain English explanation of what he was going to do and why.

Review of Dr. Nockels

- in Villa Park |

Dr. Nockels operated on my mother at 80 years of age, she had spinal stenosis in the lower spine. The outcome was fabulous, she walked out of the hospital after one week. Her pain level during recovery was low and she regained some strength and balance. When my husband needed surgery for spinal stenosis in his neck Dr. Nockels again did a wonderful job. His recovery has been very good.

Review of Dr. Nockels

- in W oodstock, IL |

I have had cervical and lumbar surgeries performed by Dr Nockels. He is an amazing doctor and so is his PA, Erin Schilling. I received excellent treatment from both of them. They are extremely kind and compassionate. Thanks to them, my back is 100% better. I was in terrible pain prior to surgery. I highly recommend them both. You won’t find a better neurosurgeon!

Review of Dr. Prabhu

- in Libertyville |

I have been a patient of Dr. Prabhu since 2006. I trust him implicitly. He truly takes the time to listen to his patients. He is extremely knowlegable in his areas of specialty but if he feels there is another doctor that would be better suited for your needs he will not hesitate to refer you. He has an excellent bedside manner, which is extremely important to me. He has a very caring and compassionate disposition.

Review of Dr. Nockels

- in Chicago, IL |

After my first visit he ordered many unnecessary tests. After this he resign to do the surgery but before after reviewing my mri's he said I need one. My insurance paid his hospital over 30k for nothing and I waste 3 months of my time. Never recommend to anybody

I saw Dr.Anderson for a second opinion.He provided me with an accurate,honest opinion and did not put me through unnecessary surgery or radiation. So very glad I saw him and will see him again.

Review of Dr. Nockels

- in Schererville |

I truly liked him, seemed very concerned, asked questions and listened. Ordered tests and was very thorough. I'm very optimistic he will get to the root of what's going on with me. Very pleased from ladies at check in desk to lab and radiology. Very pleased I came here ????

Review of Dr. Nockels


Unwilling to "dig" into complex issues. Dismissive and reliant on old tests (done by other doctors he doesn't know, that were done before onset of symptoms). Does not listen to the patient. Waste of time and money and a frustrating shame. Dr. Nockels really needs to adapt more of an open mind and stay up on current medical literature and findings as it pertains to patients coming to see him.

Review of Dr. Nockels

-Elgin, IL |

It's been 7 years since my fusion & I still can't walk without pain. I would never go back there.............. I was so drugged I was hallusinating for 3 days. The nurses were terrible & even took my phone away. They never talked to my family or answered their questions. My son-in-law had to stay with me 2 nights. & He sent me home with more Fentynal.
