We have had our son at 3 pediatricians and Dr. Boerma has been by far the best. We have a daughter with ADD\ADHD and a son with Gluten /Dairy and egg allergy. He has been understanding and sympathetic and very helpful. He has been an absolute God Send.

I love dr. Bierma. He is so knowledgeable about everything, down to earth and explains everything so you understand. My son loves him and he is not a fan of doctors. He's worth the hour and half drive! He's the kind of doctor all doctors should be.

Dr. Bierma is a knowledgeable medical professional. However, since being bought out by DuPage Medical group everything has been a hassle. Wait times were longer while the staff was adjusting to the new system. Since June, trying to get an appointment is a joke. They called me a week before my childs scheduled well visit exam to cancel & couldn't reschedule for a month, if you call for an emergency or to make an appointment it is at least a 15 minute wait on hold, plus they refer you elsewhere.
in Braidwood, IL |
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.
in Lockport, IL |
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.
