My sister and I dropped of a woman who needed assistance at the metra station to her office in Libertyville. While we cannot speak on behalf of the doctor herself, the staff that works at the front desk is very rude. We explained the situation and told Tanya/ Tonya (?) that this woman was not family or a close friend. We went out of our way to bring a woman to your practice, do not roll your eyes and act disgruntled when we can't help with medical forms. That is your job.

She cuts you off. She doesn't listen if you are talking about something she doesn't understand (ex: I tried to explain something related to my culture of which she had no idea and cut me off). I have gone to other psychiatrists in the past and have never encountered someone as rude and unprofessional as her. From the moment I entered I felt uncomfortable. Also, the receptionists were very loudly voicing their political opinions which made me very uncomfortable and is just unprofessional.

Please Do Not waste your time! She is not a professional & has no compassion. My experience with her was horrible, i never felt so judged in my life. She made me feel extremely uncomfortable & would constantly cut me off as I was talking. Please keep looking for someone else to help you, i dont want you to go through the humiliation like i did.

Worst doctor I've ever been to. I've seen counselors and psychiatrists for over 10 years and never have I been treated so poorly and disrespected in all my years of treatment. She treated me like a second class citizen. Didn't care about my thoughts. I couldn't even finish one sentence without being interrupted. I am a office manager at a dentist office and have years of customer service experience. The fact that this woman is still allowed to practice is unfathomable.
