I was transferred from outside hospital to Loyola to Dr Darki for treatment of a life threatening pulmonary embolism. Dr Darki and his Pulmonary Embolism Team saved my life. Very grateful
Zero points for bedside manner. Doesn’t listen to patient and doesn’t explain well. Has “God” complex. When you’re in his care, you’re a lab rat.

Very nice and good doctor

Dr. Darki is by far the best Cardiologist I've had and I've seen 4 so far since 2010 due to insurance changes. I'm hoping this is for good, I would and I do highly recommend Dr. Darki all the time.

Dr. Darki saved my life. At 52, I had an allergic reaction which resulted in a heart attack. I was so blessed that Dr. Darki was on call that day. It happened a little over three years ago and he has been my cardiologist ever since. He is kind and compassionate. I am grateful to have him as my doctor.

I came to Dr. Darki for second opinion. He offered me a solution when I was told there was none. Highly recommend.
in Chicago, IL |
Paid $30 for a visit where it seemed like the "doctor" did not have any time for me. Literally waited for over an hour and a half and then doctor came in talked a little, prescribed medication and left. WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY!

Absolute horrible. Calls day of to tell me that I am missing a scan of my heart. Had to wait 45 minutes in the waiting room, receptionist was poorly trained to check referrals, and then once nurse took me into the check-up room, I had to wait another 45 minutes before "Dr." Darki finally decided to show up. There was a sense of cockiness in his voice and seemed to just want to get the appointment over with right as it began. Was charged for the visit, but the doctor did NOTHING! Waste of money.
