Review of Dr. Jasek


He diagnosed me with fibromyalgia. Said he wasn't treating it and sent me back to my primary for treatment. I told him I was having severe pain in my SI joint areas. Did an MRI on my back instead of SI area. Sent me to orthopedic doctor who said he couldn't do anything for me but give me pain injection in those areas. I can't do cortison shots. I'm allergic. So now I'm being shuffled to a pain management dr. I don't appreciate that. It's a waste of my time and money!! Why don't Dr listen to their patients like they use to! I know my body better then anyone! I live in it and with it! I'm tired of the run around!

Review of Dr. Jasek


I detest most doctors b/c they don't listen and have no curiosity. That is not true of Dr. Jasek. It took me two years to finally find him and I'm very grateful I did. He not only correctly diagnosed the most visible problem, but also delved into finding the underlying problem. I really don't understand why there are negative reviews allowed to be posted by people who did NOT experience him. OTH I really detest OrthoIllinois and wish he'd join a different group.

Review of Dr. Bottros


I cant seem to get a visit to have a 10 minute procedure. At the request of your office, I had to push my appointment back a month. I missed that appointment and am now told it will be 2 months longer. I am the one in pain and it should not take 2 months to get in to see a doctor. I travel quite a bit for work and it is difficult to find a date when I am in town and have it be convenient for doctor visits. Aren't patients the customer? My customers would fire me if I was not ever available

Review of Dr. Antonacci


He has replaced my knee and hip. In both cases he did a great job. He will explain everything. Very professional. I would recommend him to anyone.

Review of Dr. Borchardt


I was scheduled for an MRI on my left shoulder. I have really bad claustrophobia. I have had probably a dozen MRIs in my life and each time I have had to take 1.5 mg of ativan. It is in my medical record. So this doc decides NO I will be prescribed 1 mg of ativan, because he knows better. So I took what he prescribed and went to the MRI and had a full blown freak out claustrophobia attack. I cried and wet my pants I was so terrified. Nice work doc! Humiliating a 67 year old woman! Still in pain!

Review of Dr. Dansdill


Dr Dansdill has been an amazing care giver to me! He listens, he is kind, and has a great sense of humor! With me it has been a long road to try and figure out what is actually going on. He has never given up. Before I finally had to have a total knee replacement he kept me going with shots and draining my Bakers cyst in the back of my right knee for two years. He showed me how he was placing the needle syringe, which was very interesting! He’s always there, Kathryn his nurse is amazing as well!

Review of Dr. Broderick

- in Elgin, IL |

I've known Dr Broderick since before he took his oral boards and he has helped me with several spinal issues over the years including a spinal fusion surgery at Sherman Hospital. It was my.surgery that actually served as an opportunity for the hospital board to purchase a major piece of equipment for the hospital that will help hundreds of people going forward. He's going to tell you what it is. Sometimes people don't like the answers but he it's always approachable and has your best interest

Review of Dr. Braaksma

- in Freeport, IL |

Dr. Braaksma saved my life. I had two herniated discs and arthritis in my back. The herniated discs were pressing on my sciatic nerve and the pain was more than i could endure. I went into Dr. Braaksma's office and just broke down and cried because of the never ending pain. Dr. Braaksma performed a lumbar fusion surgery on me. As soon as i woke up after the surgery i could already feel relief. Today i am completely pain free. I dont know what i would of done if it were not for the surgery.

Review of Dr. Olson

-Rockford, IL |

Wasn't good. He lacks compassion and understanding of my overall needs. He only cares about the numbers. Lupus involves so many aspects...mental and physical and he seemed to not care about anything else as I left his office in tears! Looking for a new Rheu...
