Patient Reviews (4)
in North Chicago, IL |
He's straight forward and direct. That may put some people off, but I'd rather know what I'm dealing with and how easily fixed.
Lake Villa, IL |
Dr. Tosseou has horrible communication skills with patient and patients family. He never called once when test results came back; leaving me to interpret them myself from the online report. Also, he should not talk about patient when just receiving anesthsia and still fully awake. Dr. Tosseou has good skills with procedures, but horrible bedside skills.
in Round Lake Park, IL |
Very thorough before starting treating me for Hep C. During treatment, monitored me very closely, actually saw him every two weeks during treatment. Due to his care, been Hep C free for over 10 years.
in Waukegan il |
Great he is very pleasant. Takes time for all the issues. He was very respectful of my nursing background and not condescending discussed med history. Had good discussion about RX, procedures and prognosis r/t to my complicated list of problems I appreciated his honest approach without any sugar coating as per my liking in a MD. He is a very caring and impathic individual. He is a keeper and understood my sense of humor. I will enjoy working with him
