Patient Comments (2)
Algonquin, IL |
Dr. Nika has no bedside manner and is probably the rudest Doctor I have seen. I went to her for a second opinion and she would not see me unless she had past diagnostic records. I was in need of a fresh look at my medical case, and she was definitely put out by this. She sighed, made little eye contact and was visibly annoyed. She was scribbling on a note pad, doodling. I burst into tears as my husband and I were desperate for answers. Stick to research doc and find compassion for patients

Dr. Nika and her staff were rude and dismissive. I left her office with no diagnosis, feeling ashamed for seeking treatment. She never called me or returned my calls to discuss my test results. I was urged by my regular doctor to see someone else based on my blood work. It turns out that she missed a pretty obvious diagnosis. If I hadn't been encouraged to seek a second opinion, I would be in terrible pain, living with an undiagnosed autoimmune disease.
