Patient Comments (5)
Milwaukee, WI |
I would leave no stars if I could. He has terrible bedside manner. Wouldn't listen to a word I said. Didn't review previous x rays. Told me to help myself by losing weight and then he would consult with me and was texting his daughter during our 5 minutes together. My bill is for 350. For what? Contesting with BCBS. He shouldn't get a penny. STAY AWAY FROM HIM.

I would NOT recommend him. He spends no time with patients. He doesn't let you explain how the injury happened or ask any questions. He finishes the appointment as he's walking out the door not even letting you ask a question. He rushes you and doesn't describe injury at all. He assumed I had a fracture when the nurse told him I had a stress reaction before I even had a chance to show him the MRI and the report and when several doctors said I didn't.

I highly recommend Dr. RAAB and his staff with regard to knee replacement. He is extremely knowledgeable and is direct and to the point. He also offers the latest technologies and is very good at performing MUA if required.
in Des Plaines, IL |
I'm so glad I found Dr. Raab to do my knee surgery. He quickly diagnosed my torn meniscus, explained my options and ultimately preformed my surgery the next week. My recovery has been as swift thanks to Dr. Raab's confidence, experience, skill and precision. Previously, I had the same surgery on my right knee, different surgeon, much longer recovery. The difference in my recovery is like night vs. day! What makes for a swift uncomplicated recovery is a surgeon's skill. Choose Dr. David Raab.
I would never recommend Dr Raab to anyone. He cut me off when I was trying to explain my injury history. He didn't give me an opportunity to fully explain the pain I was feeling. The appointment felt super rushed and like he didn't care to accurately diagnose me before moving on to his next patient.
