Takes appropriate time and explains medications and procedures thoroughly.
He covered for my cardiologist who was on vacation. I was admitted for severe palpitations w/lightheadedness. He asked about profession, activity level, lifestyle. Rather than refer me to electrophysiologist when structural abnormalities were ruled out, he told me that I wouldn't have palpitations if I worked out regularly. I told him again that I am a personal trainer and work out 30-60 minutes daily. He said that if I did, I wouldn't have palpitations because it would cure them. Doesn't listen
Dr. Zelinger, as a second opinion saved me from an absolutely unnecessary open heart surgery 12 years ago. He is a great Doctor . I highly recommend him to everyone.
Dr. Levin is very knowledgeable, makes you Feel comfortable, explains things so you can understand, and provides great care. His staff is friendly, helpful, and professional. I am very happy with my experiences with Dr. Levin and would definitely recommend him to family and friends.
My main complaint was my tachycardia, but also have been known to pass out so he had both things checked out. When i went back for the follow up visit, he only talked about my passing out and never about my main complaint. Also, he did not discuss my results of one of my tests. He was so sure of himself, but he wasted my time. I am still stuck not knowing what is wrong even though he even said my one test was "abnormal." If you wanted a doctor that listens, go to someone else.
Outstanding physician. I could not have been happier with the information provided, the warmth, sincerity, and expertise this doctor provided. Advocate is very fortunate to have such a fine outstanding individual who uses both his head and his heart in providing the best care for his patients. Many thanks.
Dr. Pauwaa is one of the best doctors I've ever had (and unfortunately, I've had more than my share). He is extraordinarily intelligent, knowledgeable, and thorough and is so articulate and honest when explaining a diagnosis, prognosis, or while answering any questions. But what puts him above and beyond the rest is his empathy, kindness, and compassion. He really, really cares about his patients and you'll definitely walk out of there knowing you are in good hands. I highly recommend him!!
He is passionate about care, and goes above and beyond for patients and families. He spent a large amount of time with me while hospitalized, then spent time with my wife and I late at night when other doctors had gone home. He stayed late and explained my condition to us in terms we could understand and didn't rush through. He isolated the cause of my problem when other doctors could not. The best doctor I have!
I had an office visit with Dr. Duggal at the Normal, IL office, followed by an ablation for SVT and I could not have received better care! He is the best!!!
Dr. Pierre Abi-Mansour is not my regular cardiologist but had to see him since my doctor was on vacation. My experience with Dr.Mansour was frustrating. He did not want to answer any questions and when he did address me, he does so in a very rude and demeaning way. Some of my other specialists said that he refused to communicate with them regarding my health care needs. Needless to say I do not recommend a doctor that cannot communicate with respect! Thankfully he's not the only doctor in town.
The staff in the front office was rude and incompetent. I have never dealt with such a disrespectful front desk. I had to call multiple times to get my prescription filled and then had to call my previous doctor's office to get my medical records sent over. The front office staff was unable to follow up after requesting my medical records. Then after already stating he would fill out a disability placard card for me, he told me to get my new doctor to do it. Do Not go here
He recommends to have procedures done, not try to discuss other remedies, before putting patients on medications or increasing them. Ask questions before agreeing to start on prescribed medications.
Dr. Pauwaa is knowledgeable and takes time to let his patient know their diagnosis and options, good or bad. He shows genuine compassion. Excellent Doctor.
Dr. Diamond would have the highest recommendation I can give as he is the most understanding, patient, and professional Doctor I know . Extra stars and gratitude for saving my life.
He was wonderful and caring. He diagnosed my problem and was able to fix it within a timely fashion. He was knowledgeable and the surgery went well.
