Dr. Soderstrom was rude and very condescending. I am a sun worshipper and was looking for a dermatologist in case any issues come up. I wasn't looking for judgement. I won't be going back!

I had an awful experience; previously, I have never had what I would describe as a bad or poor experience with a medical professional. I felt belittled, rushed, violated, awkward, and over-charged. After the doctor walked out of the room I was in tears. I then had to fork over more than $1,500.00. The nurse was fine, but there was another woman who came into the room. She was never introduced to me--neither her name, her title, nor her purpose for being in the room. After a very quick "full body scan" (he did NOT look at my whole body) he went to leave, and I had to stop him because I had numerous questions. I didn't even get to ask about all of the issues I came in for because he was rushing to leave and get on to his next unsuspecting patient. When I asked him about a spot on my face he laughed at me and pushed his monthly facial program. Uh, no thanks. The doctor then exited and said the unknown woman be taking care of shaving off the specimens for biopsy. I could go on...

Was very polite but kept to the point. Total time in the back including checkout was 22 minutes. That was with a removal procedure being completed.

I have been seeing Dr. Carl Soderstrom for 40+ years. My mother made an appointment for me to see Dr. Soderstrom back in the early 1970's, when he had his private practice in Morton, Illinois. And since then, I have been seen and treated by Dr. Soderstrom many times throughout the years. You will not find a more educated, professional and knowledgeable doctor of dermatology. Dr. Soderstrom and his team of doctors and staff are the best in the business.

Doctor Soderstrom & his very competent staff have always been very professional in educating the pubic about the importance of skin care vigilance. Their 'Free Skin Scans' offered to the Central Illinois Community for decades have provided a frontline approach to possible health concerns. The physicians of Soderstrom Skin Institute have also participated in many live 30 minute local network television, 'Docs On Call', programs giving the viewers a chance to inquire about their medical issues.

My experiences with Dr. Soderstrom have always been wonderful. He is an extremely thoughtful and intelligent doctor, and I could tell he cared greatly about me as a patient when I came to the office. He helped me with my acne and keeping my skin clear and healthy. I’d recommend him to anyone in need of a dermatologist!
