Been to multiple doctors and none as thorough as Dr. Park. She spent far more time with me listening and doing the physical and then called me over the weekend with test results. I've seen her for over a year. After changing alot ofmy meds and encouraging me on the physical therapy, I've never felt better. Great doctor!

I've been seeing this doctor for a few months. I initially gave her five stars, but after today's visit. I felt she was rude and unprofessional. You don't tell a patient to their face, we already talked about this issue over and over. If that's the case, why do you keep wanting me to come back. I won't be going back again after today's visit. Too many other Rheumatologist in Chicago near by.

I had a horrible experience with Dr. Park. She was rude and condescending, did not listen to me or believe me when I told her my symptoms. She contradicted everything that my other rheumatologist said and came up with bogus reasons to explain away my symptoms such as your arms are swelling because you work out too much and lift heavy weights. And then she told me that the pain I was experiencing was in my head. Pick a Dr. who will actually listen to you and take your concerns seriously.

Very unprofessional for being a Rheumatologist She assumed just by looking at me and holding up my arm that nothing was going on? She didn't order any tests or x rays. In my opinion you need to do that and a lot more to try to rule out anything To involved and self absorbed in correcting her typing and repeating herself then interacting with the patient Also I waited over 2hours just to be seen for 15mins Will not recommend or go here again. Beware
