    Huntley, IL |
    Based on my experience I would never ever send any loved ones to this office. The office atmosphere is unpleasant and unfriendly from the moment you walk in the door to the end of your appointment. Reception area, if you want to call it that, is not very welcoming at all. The Dr. Matar is the most shady employee I have ever seen. An obvious screw up on his part in the beginning of diagnosis did not stop him from placing blame on others like Medicare and the other doctors involved in the treatmen
