This is a GOOD man & a very fine doctor. Dr. Dachman cares! He has been an exceptional advocate for me, my Chronic Pain & my quality of life. Dr. Dachman - accurately, it has since been confirmed by Coloniscopies, etc., diagnosed me with Celiac (Gluten) Disease LONG BEFORE most anyone knew anything about it & well before grocery stores even knew that carrying it made ANY SENSE. Let alone, knowing what it meant. This was around 2008 or 9. There was ONE Gluten-Free grocery store in the Chicago area & if you didn’t live near it it was a long drive to get there. My wife & I did that every couple of weeks or so - & it was expensive. You could say, too then, that Dr. Dachman also saved my 80-year-old mother, whom I told “this doctor” said was hereditary & that she likely had it. She has it much worse than I do & she has altered her life around it - from Florida - indirectly because of Dr. Dachman. Sure, his specialty may be Rheumatoid Arthritis, but compassion for Chronic Pain is his life!

Pain Therapy Associates have been the primary doctors assisting in my medical care for over 6 years. Dr. Dachman is caring, compassionate, listens, explains his recommendations and takes into account my complex medical issues and opinions for treatment. He has tried so many different forms of treatment with the goal of lowering my pain. They offer a wide variety of treatments to bring comfort to all types of rheumatic issues based on the patient's individual needs, such as massage therapy, acupuncture... The front desk staff is always helpful & friendly, esp Kerry. Michelle, the nurse, is wonderful & gets back to patients quickly with questions or test results. Chris, the ultrasound tech, is friendly & knowledgable in his field. Rich, massage therapist, is at the top of his field & helpful with muscle issues/pain. I'm thankful to be under their care, and that they continue to help me as I'm a complex patient. They've helped bring comfort & compassion to my frustrating chronic pain.

If you have pain Dr. Dachman will not stop until he finds out the reason for the pain and treats it. Twenty eight years ago, Dr diagnosed my fibromyalgia . No other dr. even knew what fibromyalgia was at that time and dismissed me as some crazy lady. He worked with me for along time to find the correct meds to let me live a very active life style. I have lots of allergies to meds and he worked through that issue, too. At 70 ,I now have arthritis and he is leaving no stone unturned to get me back to my busy daily routine. He is beyond a doubt the best, most professional,caring doctor I have ever seen. I have recommended him to many others that have tremendous pain. Colleen Carroll, Schaumburg, IL

Dr. Dachman is the very best; I have been a patient for over thirty years. He is so knowledgeable, kind, and patient friendly. Dr. Dachman is probably the only doctor I know who actually will pick up the phone to speak to you. I honestly can say there is not a thing he does not know. He researches everything. Once you go to his office, you will never see another. I am in the best shape of my life because of him. Dr. -- you are the best.

I have been a patient of Dr. Dachman for 30 yrs. He took me from being crippled up by rheumatoid arthritis to becoming a marathon runner. His expertise is incredible - always keeping up with cutting edge treatments. I send my friends to him if they need an accurate diagnosis. He is a very gifted diagnostician. He tries to help you avoid surgery unless absolutely necessary and uses all kinds of healing modalities. His Physician Assistants are top notch.

Dr. Dachman is part of a rare breed of doctors who actually listens to their patient, hears their history, issues you are having and plans a course of action all with a down to earth personality. Open to all sorts of treatment. Very thorough! explains why for a certain medication if necessary or blood test needing to run or other procedures. Him or his M.A call you immediately when test results are in. If you are in dire need to see him he will squeeze you in. I highly recommend!

Dr Dachman has been taking care of my arthritic issues for the last 19 years, he has always given me the best possible care, with a thorough explanation of all of my issues and medications he has prescribed. Dr. Dachman gave me hope at a young age of diagnosis that I was going to be ok. I could never thank him enough for what he has done for me.

Dr. Dachman is one of the most professional physicians I’ve met. He's a great listener, asks the right questions, and is genuinely concerned about his patient’s well-being. I had little to no wait time when I visited Dr. Dachman office. The receptionists were friendly. I was suffering from severe lower back pain. After this visit and the right medication, I was better in no time. I’m very pleased with my choice to have Dr. Dachman as my physician.

Dr Dachman and this office is one of the best medical establishments I’ve been to. Whenever I have a question or concern I write Dr D in the patient portal and he has always gotten back to me within 20 minutes! He’s even written me when on a plane !! They actually CARE about the patients with integrity! I don’t feel like I’m fending for myself like I did under other offices. I’m very grateful I found this office. If you need a caring rheumatologist that has real compassion for patients go here!

Dr. Dachman is a wonderful doctor- I have never had a doctor who was as kind, respectful, and caring as he is. He truly cares about me not just as numbers on a chart but as human beings. I was very sick when I started seeing him, and under his care I improved far beyond the point that my previous rheumatologist thought was possible. Dr. Dachman was absolutely determined that I could get better and his positive attitude and treatment style made that happen. Wonderful and helpful staff, Thanks.
