Review of Dr. Port

- in IL |

Horrible doctor! Missed diagnosed my 56 year old brother&as a result my brother died 12 weeks later! My brother had the classic signs&symptoms&risk factors of esophageal cancer. Dr. Port told my brother that he had GERD. He did an upper endoscopy and did not even perform a random biopsy let alone miss seeing his huge tumor. My brother told him that his symptoms were getting worse. My brother went to another doc&tumor was huge, causing tracheal deviation&was told it was present for a long time!

Review of Dr. Kwan

-

She did not even know what kefir is. She did not show empathy or even care about my symptoms. $2000 to tell me that I am healthy. Went to other doctor for second opinion and informed me that my file from dr kwan’s clinic said I had precancerous cells that I was unaware of to months later after kwan did colonoscopy. She also prescribed meds with major side effects that was for wrong diagnosis. Makes me wonder if she went to school to help heal or to get a phat check.

Review of Dr. Kwan

- in Glen Ellyn, IL |

I have seen Dr. Kwan for more than five years, and she has been able to control my GI issues extremely well, even having to switch medication, that my Part D would not adequately pay for. She is thoughtful and professional, and I am so glad I found her.

Review of Dr. Berkelhammer

- |

I am surprised to see any negative reviews on Dr. Berkelhammer. Actually, I can’t imagine anyone giving less than an excellent rating. I have gone to the doctor, as have my husband and sister. We were referred by a close friend who was quickly diagnosed with a cancer had been misdiagnosed by other doctors. Thankfully my friend is doing well as a result of Dr. Berkelhammer. I just had my daughter see him He was more than attentive, caring, and accommodating. I would highly recommend him!

Review of Dr. Kwan

-

Never before had a doctor so rude, pushy, and condescending reduce me to tears but Dr. Kwan did. I felt like I was being attacked right off the bat. Terrible bedside manner. She just wanted to hurry and prescribe me drugs and get me out the door. Not interested in talking to me about my other medical issues and how they relate to my gastro issue, or in homeopathic ways to reduce my symptoms.

Doctor Berkelhammer is the best. I've been seeing him for 30 years and he really takes his time with you. I hope he never stops practicing medicine !

Review of Dr. Lee

- in Mokena, IL |

I met with Dr. Lee once before a colonoscopy. After that, I had two additional appointments in his office over the next year. I was only able to have an appointment with his PA (who is clueless about her job). Once he gets your money, you’ll never see him again. The staff is also very rude.

Review of Dr. Lee

-Mokena, IL |

I talked to him once. Had a colonoscopy performed and could never get in touch with him again over the next year. Not even for my results. Just his staff which is terribly rude and clueless about what they are doing including his PA. I guess once he gets paid, he just doesn’t care about his patients. Do NOT recommend!
