      Dr. Bierma does not investigate medical problems. He will continue to throw drugs at issues and hopes the problem will go away. He actively discourages getting a second opinion from a doctor outside of the Joliet/Shorewood area. If asked questions, like, "why does my child need this drug?", he deflects and won't answer the questions. He gets angry with an educated parent. Do not see this doctor.

      This site states that Dr. Bierma is accepting new patients. It also states all the different insurance plans he accepts. I just tried to make a new patient appointment, which was going to be fine until we got to the insurance question. I stated it was for 2 foster kids who have the state's insurance plan. At that point she backtracked and said they are no longer accepting any new patients and that they only accept Blue Cross from now on.

      Terrible doctor. Rushed us out of the room. He was arrogant. He didn't allow us to speak. He talked over us. And he was insincere. I highly discourage people from taking their children to this doctor.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
