Patient Comments (6)
Dr. Doppenberg is not only the finest neurosurgeon I've ever gratefully come across (and I should know after 7-he did the last 2 that were fantastically successful) he's also the most humble, gracious, and kindest too. He is WORLD renowned neuro that I consider my God. He is also conservative about cutting and will only do surgery if it is absolutely necessary. He really listens to his patients, and treats them with utter respect. I recommend him to everyone, he's the VERY BEST of the BEST!.

The office staff here is completely incompetent.

I don't know if there are enough superlatives to describe my experience with Dr Doppenberg. Not only is he an extremely talented neurosurgeon, his mannerisms and personal touch make him the best in the business. He is very friendly and I never once felt rushed during any of my visits. He clearly explained my issue and showed me in detail on the MRI screen what was causing my pain. He was able to get me in for surgery remarkably quickly which was a huge relief as I was suffering. Thanks Doctor.

Dr.Doppenberg operated on my back, he was the epitome of professionalism. He was caring, compassionate and he explained the entire procedure to me and my family. I feel very fortunate to have him as my surgeon.

Outstanding reputation. Operation in Feb2016. Good Sam. Hospital in Downers Grove. Very professional staff. Very attentive nurses. No private rooms. Roommate dementi patient- no sleep possible. Scheduled 30 and 90 days follow up. Seen by knowledgeable PA's instructed to get new MRI. Sent to Dr. Now 5 months since surgery. No response from Dr office as to new MRI. Engaged new Dr. Very disappointed with lack of follow-up, as promised. Not disappointed with surgery as was advised of possibility
in Woodridge, IL |
Extraordinary surgeon. Inspires confidence. Kind, compassionate and empathetic. I was fully recovered within a month of major surgery with no side-effects whatsoever.Discharged from the hospital within two days of surgery. My symptoms have been totally eliminated and I'm back to normal and feel even better than my pre-surgery days. Cannot say enough good things about Dr. Doppenberg and his staff. Excellent job by everyone on Dr. Doppenberg's staff.
