Dr Phillips is an incredible surgeon. He did my lower back fusion which immediately made walking comfortable for me. He also did cervical fusion which eliminated the pinched nerve allowing me full use of my left hand. He takes his time to explain conditions & options. His staff (Toni, Christine, Marion) are so very nice. They are helpful, caring & kind. I have recommended Dr. Phillips to my friends! Great people! Trustworthy & professional.

Seemed nice but hard to judge off of a 5 minute interaction. I was in the waiting room for 2 hours past my scheduled time and then to have access to the Dr for such a short time makes me think twice about using this office again in the future.

Dr Phillips was 90 minutes late and entered the exam room without explanation, without apology, but instead displaying tremendous arrogance. At one point I was attempting to describe my symptoms and he was very clearly annoyed that I was speaking and taking up his time. He confirmed that suspicion when I wrapped up my 1-2 minute recap by brushing it off as immaterial.

I had an appt to see Dr.Phillips last week in the Munster office. I did not get to see him. Rather, I was seen by a physician assistant. I had another appt the following week in Chicago office and was told I would see the doctor after an MRI. After waiting 75 minutes past the appt time, I was again seen by the physician assistant. The physician assistant seemed to be conveying the information for the doctor. She did a fine job, but I made appointments to see Dr.Phillips. Dr.Phillips did a good job with my spinal fusion years ago and I think he is top-notch. I specifically sought him. If patients are not going to see the specialist (which I will be billed for), then this should be disclosed during the scheduling process.

I was in immense back pain when I saw Dr. Phillips. He gave me my options and noted the only way to get rid of back pain was spinal fusion. That option was not what I expected but I'm glad I did it. When the team performed the surgery they found additional issues and were able to adjust and complete successfully. His whole team put me at ease and reassured me along the way. I am so happy i chose this Dr and Midwest Ortho at Rush. The experience was life changing and I have my life back pain free. My biggest issue is wanting it to heal faster so I can back to some of my old hobbies. Thank you!!!!

Dr. Phillips did my back surgery 12 years ago complete success! I need to have another, a result of the disk above my previous surgery area is deteriorating. Dr. Phillips is the only back surgeon I trust

After having a surgery two years ago that didn’t solve my problem. I had been to many doctors and no one was able to help me. Dr. Phillips was able to come up with a solution.

I had a discectomy at C5-C6. Dr. Phillips was extremely knowledgeable. He answered all of my questions and was very reassuring. The procedure went smooth and all follow-up appointments went well. All of his staff has been amazing at answering questions and getting back to me in a timely manner. I cannot day enough good things about Dr. Phillips and his staff.
