Dr Doppenbergs compassionate care with detailed attention to patients concerns and symptoms is exemplary and cannot be put in words, his kindness, calm manner, courteous greeting and professional demeanor puts all patients at ease immediately. He is very thorough in his patient care related issues. I recommend him to anyone needing expert neurosurgical care. I remain indebted to him for his wonderful expertise and care provided to me after my MVA.

Dr. Doppenberg is one of those rare physicians that combines impeccable clinical skills with great compassion. He is modest and down to earth. He explains everything well. He really cares about his patients. Dr Doppenberg has performed three serious operations on me and I have done well with each. Many patients see Dr Doppenberg for second or third options because of his knowledge and excellent judgement. I am very lucky to have him as my physician.

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!.

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

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.
