Referred by a co-worker of mine to see Dr. Mahr for my back. It's been hurting for years and finally caved in and made an appointment. I usually don't write reviews, but I was seen the same week. UNHEARD OF. Dr. Mahr is a great man, listened to my complaining and gave me multiple options for my pain. I'm back to work and feel good again. Highly recommended!

Dr. Mahr saved me from ruining a vacation. I was having shoulder pain and was leaving the following week for vacation. His staff was very friendly and gave me an appointment right away! I was so glad. The office was clean and everyone was warm and very thorough with the paperwork. Dr. Mahr is an absolute angel. He gave me my diagnosis, a course of treatment as well as exercises to do in order for me to have an enjoyable vacation. Highly recommend!!! This is practice is great!

Came here to get my foot looked at by Dr. Mahr. Staff was nice and listened to my concerns since I needed to go back to work. The space was clean and Dr. Mahr really helped me get back on my feet to go back to work.

Dr. Christopher Mahr was very professional. Explained in detail my problem and what to do to get better. I wish he could be my primary doctor.

Two months ago I sustained an injury that I feared would end my favorite activity - running. Thanks to Dr. Mahr for his accurate diagnosis and successful surgery on me. I am now pain-free, gaining strength in physical therapy that he ordered for me and looking forward to start training for another marathon I once thought would never be possible. Thanks, Dr. Mahr!

I HAVE SEEN DR. MAHR AS WELL AS MY FAMILY IN THE PAST AS WELL AS IN THE LAST MONTH. ALWAYS FITS US IN WITHIN A DAY OR 2. MAKES MY CHILDREN FEEL AT EASE. VERY PROFESSIONAL WITH EXAM AND EXPLANATIONS. WOULD RECOMMEND DR MAHR TO ANYONE THAT NEEDS AN ORTHOPEDIC CHECK UP.

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

Great doctor!

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.
