I referred my son for a sports injury after I had seen Dr. Mahr. He liked the fact that he had the x-rays done right there and various treatment options explained to him. Also mentioned how impressed he was with the office itself and the staff being friendly and efficient. Sounds like he will be telling his softball team buddies about this office and Dr. Mahr

I would definitely refer my family or friends to Dr. Mahr. He has early morning and late afternoon appointments which allows me to work more easily around my work schedule. I was emailed new patient forms before my first appointment and received reminders prior to my appointments. Staff was professional, accommodating and Dr. Mahr got me back to my sport activities sooner than I anticipated.

I was having a foot issue. Dr. Mahr was great. He took x-rays andexplained what plantar ficsciitis is and gave me a few different options for treatment. He alsoexplained what exercises i can do to help. I have seen him before for other issues and have always been happy with his treatment and explainations of my diagnosis. I would recommend Dr. Mahr to everyone.

Saw Dr. Mahr for neck strain. Office personal was very friendly and accomodating at my appointment. Dr.Mahr was very professional and eased my nerves. Ordered Xrays right in office. Explained my diagnosis and treatment so I could understand. Ordered steroid for pain. Felt better within a week. Will definitely refer family and friends to this practice.

Couldn't recommend to anyone I care about ACL surgery on 6/30/16, on 7/18 it swelled up, turned out I had an infection & spent a week in a hospital. 7/25 I felt calf pain, and he said I was fine & not to come in. Thankfully a nurse friend said to check it out, I had a blood clot. A 3rd surgery took place 8/15 from another mistake. Too many doctors to choose from to deal with him. 1st bill received was 12/21, & now insurance wont cover because of timing. Im stuck with HUGE bill because of mistake

Dr. Mahr did a great job on my ACL. He was personable and really cared about my recovery. Thanks!

I had an appointment with Dr Mahr in early September for an injury I received from playing football with my son. My experience was a very positive one, as he fitted me with a boot rather than a hard, and uncomfortable cast. I was thrilled with this approach. He was extremely personable.
Chicago, IL |
I went to see Dr. Mahr for a slipped disc in my lower back. He did nothing in the office to treat me. Instead, he sent me to a physical therapist and did not work with her to come up with an appropriate routine to help my back, I ended up feeling worse. I then was directed by his assistant to see a pain specialist. Instead of helping me, he sent me to other doctors.
