Review for Dr. Popovic

My mother has been his patient for a few months. When we call his office for updated care instructions we get voice mail with a full inbox 50% of the time. It usually takes 2 to 3 days before we can leave a message and get a call back. Very frustrating.

Review for Dr. Bassman

Terrible terrible bedside manners. I honestly have never been to a doctor that was more dismissive of patient concerns. He spent approximately 2 minutes in the room didn't even bother to do a physical examination- for a shoulder issue. Would not recommend.

I have been seeing Dr. Covlin for approximately 5 years. He has seen me through 2 pregnancies, I singleton and a twin pregnancy. He recently gave me a Hysterectomy which he did a fabulous job. Excellent bedside manor and listens to your concerns. I recommend him to anyone looking for a new OBGYN.

We waited 6 months to see Norah Baker. I drove 5 hours to take my mom in as a new patient. We were then told the appointment was cancelled by someone. They had no idea who did it and they're not taking new patients now. What a mismanaged system.

Review for Dr. Popovic

Dr. Horner did surgery on my ankle after I fell down the stairs and broke ankle and dislocated my foot. He came over to the hospital the night before my surgery to introduce himself and explain the procedure. He is an excellent doctor! I highly recommend him!

Excellent team of medical staff. Dr. Motwani is easy to talk to and he actually listens. His Nurse Assistants and support staff are't afraid to spend a little time with you. I have always received good care in a busy practice with well-trained staff.

Review for Dr. Chiu

I would never recommend this dr. He cut off my leg & only gave me 2 days of pain meds. He left me screaming in pain for 6 weeks & I now suffer from heart pains when I am stressed. He didn’t care that my family practitioner or my home health care nurse saw I was in distress & needed pain meds.

Tonya Ryan in Alton, IL - Oct 31 2018

Dr. Manchanda has helped me with several pain problems, lots of back pain, knee, hip and shoulder pain also. I would highly recommend Dr. Manchanda to anyone dealing with any pain issues. He is always up on the latest techniques and has been able to reduce my pain level so I can be active again.

Had word done on my shoulder after another surgeon attempted to fix my issue a few years prior. Turns out plenty of items were missed with my other doctor. Dr. Weimar was very easy to work with and professional. He has now worked on 6 coworkers in my office and he will continue to be referred too.

Belleville, il - Oct 09 2017

Review for Dr. Weimer

So, evidently, according to Dr. Franklin James you must make another doctor's appointment to get FMLA paperwork completed on a cronic issue you were already treated for. I guess he needs more cash. That's a joke.

He did my catheterization in November 2014 before my CABG surgery. He took the time to explain the procedure and recommended the cardiovascular surgeon. Have been to his Waterloo,Illinois office for annual check-ups, and I am very satisfied with his very professional team.

Review for Dr. Reilly

Dr. Manchanda is a great doctor, I'm finally off pain drugs I been taking for years given by other pain doctors. I was on heavy doses of norcotics when I came to him and he slowly tapered me down. My pain is almost gone after the Radio frequency Ablation he did on me.
