Patient Comments (1)
in Round Lake, IL |
She's the best doctor I've had at this location. I was considering finding a new practice but because of her I've decided to stay. I went in with horrible upper abdominal pain and she was very thorough in finding the cause. Most of the other doctors at this practice won't do that. I ended up getting an ultrasound and she called me herself with the results and referred me to a specialist. My only complaint is that she takes a while to get back to you with questions, but that may not be her fault.
