Patient Reviews (2)
in Libertyville, IL |
Impatient and rude. Suggested laxative/stool softener for toddler, rather than suggesting high fiber foods, etc.
in Vernon Hills, IL |
Not too friendly. Sort of military feeling. I felt like maybe because I'm Hispanic I'm treated like this, but I guess I'm not the only one.
