Don't go to this guy if you want him to listen and provide answers. His education has eclipsed his empathy.
in Skokie, IL |
Very accommodating , makes you feel at ease, gives thorough answer or explanation to your questions and concerns. He and his staff especially Kristhine are pleasant and very helpful. Medical team like them, makes you look and deal w/ what you're going through in a positive perspective. Thank you Dr Fimmel.

This man was rude, condescending, and downright insulting when I talked to him. I would recommend to anyone to find another GI doctor. There are plenty who actually care, and are willing to treat you like a human being.

Let me be absolutely clear: I have hepatites C, gnome 3, and cirrossis......This is a very serious diagnosis, extremely touchy to treat, scary, and hard to comprehend at times. Dr Fimmel has not only helped instill in me the confidence that I can beat this, but he know exactly what he wants to do. He takes my phone calls, returned my emails within an hour or so......not just me either.....every patient I speak with loves this guy. A great doctor.......
