Palos Hills, IL |
this guy and his staff have no people skills. Cant see him having any repeat patients.
in Tinley Park, IL |
I think he is a very good doctor. He swiftly performed only necessary tests to diagnose my condition and referred me to an excellent surgeon. That said, he is NOT a pleasant person at all. I am an MRI Tech and and have worked with many different doctors. There is ZERO excuse for rudeness. I don't care how good you are, if you can't show kindness and compassion to your patients, maybe its time to hang up your white coat. That does not build a patient's confidence or trust.

The worst! He was self-absorbed and appeared bored during my visits. I explained the problems and pain I was experiencing and he questioned the severely of my discfort and pain. Very poor listener and not caring or compassionate. Stay clear of this doctor!

After leaving four (4) phone messages with Pam, the scheduler, NEVER received a response. Might look for another doc.
