Chicago, IL |
I made an appointment with her office and it was scheduled for 1 month out. After waiting all that time when we went to her office we came to know that she was busy and het medical assistant will be seeing us. Finally since it was so difficult to get the appointment to start with, we saw him. He did not do much, gave some samples and sent us away. I ended up paying the same amount for this visit as for any specialist so it was a rip-off.

I have been a patient of Steve Prus's at Advanced Dermatology for the past 3 years (since moving to the Chicago area). He is knowledgeable, spends time with patients and his conservative in cosmetic treatments. I highly recommend this practice to friends and family.

Her office and staff are robots. She is the worst doctor. She has switched from practicing medicine to running a high-priced beauty salon. I will never go back.
We are sorry to hear about your experience. Please call our practice director, Michelle Mivelli at 847-459-6400 x 105 so that we can learn what transpired during your visit, so that we can address and correct your concerns.

I felt she was more interested in covering her legal tracks with tons of forms to sign than being concerned about my skin. She performed a procedure on me that didn't go well, and her whole office switched into you assumed the risk mode. I think she needs to understand the risks of her equipment before she uses it on people.
She didn't know as much as other dermatologists I've seen. She kept saying, I don't know what this is, but I don't think it's anything. And she didn't suggest biopsies - only when I asked about them. She wasn't as thorough as others I've seen. When asked why she didn't look at a certain area, she said she would if I wanted her to. I said only if she thought it was necessary. Then she proceeded to look at that area. I won't go back to her.
