What People Say About Dr. Darren Kastin, MD

This Dr. was educated at "Northwestern University", and "Ya;e", for his Fellowship, Residency, and Internship. He needs to go back and take remedial training in proper customer service, and treating patients with respect. He was rude, arrogant, interrupted, and talked down to me, in a condescending manner. He told me, my former and present Doctors (M.D.'s), don't know what their talking about, because their not a Specialist, like him. Seriously, are you kidding me ?. His personality is a zero. "You don't get a second chance to make a good first impression ". I'm out, No Thank You Dr.

Dr. Kastin is my favorite dr- great beside manner, knowledgeable, logical, great respect for patients. Family dr referred me for abdominal pain & nausea. He recommended a colonoscopy despite a 1 in a million chance of cancer at age 36 but said "that doesn't matter if you're that 1" which I loved bc he wanted to check despite low odds- Colonoscopy showed many polyps, one huge-would definitely be cancer in a year if not already. No problem admitting beyond expertise. He literally saved my life!

Very knowledgeable and experienced doctor with great bedside manner. He truly cares about his patients and has a wonderful staff. He even met me at the ER for a medical condition to make sure I got in quickly and recieved the treatment I needed.

Dr Kastin and the entire team at the facility were fantastic! The procedure was a breeze. 4 stars! Be sure to bring a sweater as the waiting room is chilly...

In MY opinion I believe Dr. Kastin was in a hurry to "finish". Spouse in ER less than 4 hours later. ICU and surgery. Dr. Kastin still has a potty mouth even after he was warned. Now he "lurks" by inserting himself when he was told "NO".

Dr. Kastin and his team were outstanding during my routine colonoscopy. I appreciated every one of the team members introducing themselves to me when they first met me and I was immediately at ease with their respect, courtesy, friendliness, and professionalism. They treated me as a person, not just another procedure. Follow-up during recovery was exceptional: the person who checked on me remembered something important I'd said when I was just waking up and then followed up at the next check in

Never go to this doctor. He was very rude, impatient and selfish. He did not let me finish what I wanted to He is the kind of doctor who just wants your money irrespective of whether he helps you or not. All his focus was to get out of the room to see other patients rather than listening to me.This doctor claims that he took up the profession to make a difference in other's lives. That is a huge lie.
