Review of Dr. Chockalingam

-Elgin |

"Chock," as he is referred to by almost everyone, is FANTASTIC! He has worked closely with my daughter and I for years and HE is the reason we keep coming back. His staff, however, is A-W-F-U-L!!! They are rude and they act like they are being bothered when you call. The chick at the front desk is rude. The girl who answers the phones is rude. There is just no sense in it all. If it weren' for how awesome Chock is, we would have been gone a long time ago!

Front counter staff was very rude and disrespectful. Will not return to this office. Need to send staff to professional development classes, so they can learn how to treat and respect elderly patients.

There were long waits for my office visits. His staff called to cancel my procedure the night before it was scheduled. This was after I was 2 hours into the prep for the procedure which was awful. Now I have to go through it all over again. I won’t be going back to this office.

Dr Chock is a great Doctor but the 2-4 hour wait times every visit was just too much for someone who is as ill as I am. Unfortunately, I had to change Gastroparesis Docs because the wait outweighed the benefit of how good Dr Chock is. If you are capable of sitting in the waiting room for 2+ hours then he is an awesome Gastroparesis Doc. His staff is great also. I just wish that my health allowed me to handle sitting up that long.

Dr. Chockalingam is a great doctor, but the wait time is ridiculous. I have been waiting almost 2 hours. No option to reschedule was offered. I was pretty much told to wait or I could call when I was ready to be rescheduled.

Dr. Chockalingham takes whatever time is needed with his patients, carefully explaining everything in terms non-medical professionals can understand. He is highly competent and trustworthy. The only problem I have ever experienced with his office is overly long wait times. When I complained about it to him, he apologized and explained his plan for addressing the problem, and his plan is working, so I now have no complaints about the office, only praise.
