    in Homer Glen, IL |
    4 year old with re-occuring chalazion. His staff did thorough exam but when it was time for me to speak to the doctor, he seemed rushed. Suggested surgery if it didn't go away &stood up as if to leave- I started asking questions & he seemed bothered by it. Did not have a good bedside manner and I was very concerned when he said SURGERY and ANESTHESIA. I called office for more info on procedure and possibly a website they would recommend for procedure - nothing. They don't have that -too common

    Receptionist Lisa is very rude and with her in the front line I will not be recommending anyone to your practice...... which is too bad because Dr. Ticho was highly recommended, but there are lots of well respected drs with a friendly helpful staff. My blood pressure is still boiling from dealing with her
