Patient Comments (4)
Joliet, IL |
This office was more concerned with receiving payment up front. I found it odd because my insurance does not work that way and no other office required my payment up front until after my insurance processed. The office staff clearly does not know how insurance works. Also not very friendly, I found the receptionist to be quite rude dealing with patients. Dr. Jhawar was ok but really didn't talk much. I think this office really needs to work on their bedside manner and communication skills.
Evanston, IL |
Office staff is extremely rude and the doctor was pushy and refused to offer less invasive testing methods that others doctors were happy to use.
Shorewood, IL |
Rude. Poor bedside manors. Quick and doesn't listen to patients.

I would NEVER recommend this office as I am in urgent need and was told by the office staff that because I have Aetna PPO, I could only be seen if I come in with 250.00, PERIOD. I have been ill with severe abdominal pain for 4 months and unable to get treatment due to the BCBS HMO we had. My husband and I switched and got our new Aetna id cards last Thursday, but the 2 local hospitals are backed up over 2 months out for the tests I need. I guess insurance just doesn't matter!
