Patient Comments (7)
Chicago, IL |
I am a patient of Dr Zlioba since before his current Joliet location, and because he is an incredible physician I followed him there = I'd follow him anywhere. I had torn my cornea, then ulcerated my cornea, and severely infected the same eye. With his knowledge and skills, he cured and saved my eye without evasive surgery or procedures. I'll forever be grateful and indebted to him for saving my eye. He'd be my primary doctor if possible. I hope he never retires. Highest recommendations! Thank U

Dr. Zlioba is an excellent knowledgeable and caring physician. His passion for his field is obvious. Great office staff. Always have a good experience at his office. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Zlioba has a great bedside manner and is extremely knowledgable. He did a thorough history and eye examine me that I've referred both of my parents to him for cataract surgery. They also are very impressed with his kind and compassionate care.

Dr. Zlioba is outstanding-I have been seeing him for years and trust him implicitly. He's extremely knowledgeable and thorough and it's obvious that his patients' welfare is his primary concern. The waiting room is always full, and for good reason. Obviously many others share my opinion. The office is very well-organized and efficient in spite of the heavy patient load. Highly recommend!

If I could leave no stars I would ! My daughter was going to him and when we question her records he told us to find her a new dr!! Worst dr ever!!
I am personally sure this must be a misunderstanding, and a big one at that! I have, on rare occasions, personally advised a patient that they should consult their difficult problem with a university level specialist. I have NEVER asked any patient to leave my practice. If insurance has changed, or for any reason at all, my staff and I have NEVER withheld patient records. I would personally apologize, especially for a misunderstanding caused by my office.

I do not think it would be possible to find a finer doctor then Dr. Zlioba. He is very nice and takes time to address the patients concerns. His staff is also very nice and extremely professional. Waiting times sometimes get a little long but that is because of his deep concern for the patient and the high number of patients, this QUALITY of care is well worth waiting a little while for. My cataract surgery was done at Amsurg and that was a totally good experience .
