Patient Comments (3)
in Chicago, IL |
First time with this doc and he was great. Would not recommend this place though-they have rules for everything but make you wait 45 min for your appt. When I asked the nurse is this typical, she hesitated and said the doc spent extra time with some patients. This leads me to believe this is what he does SO THEY SHOULD ALLOW FOR THIS IN THE SCHEDULE. They literally threatened me if I didn't bring my new patient forms they could not let me see the doc-then they have the nerve not send the forms

The doctor is ok - he never remembers to refill my maintenance prescriptions however. This means I'm stuck working with his office staff. They are absolutely rude, incompetent and lazy. There are always problems with the phone and people drop the ball when you need anything. I've never NOT had a problem with this provider. I cannot wait until we move and I can get a real pulmonlogy provider.
in Orland Park, IL |
He is compassionate, caring, and knowledgeable about lung conditions. He has a wonderful bedside manner. I would recommend him to anyone I cared about who needed respiratory services. The office staff are caring and wonderful as well.
