Patient Comments (5)
From the moment I walked into the Vernon Hills office I was introduced to a rude secretary at the front desk, a judgemental nurse scoffing at my medications, and the doctor was dismissive, arrogant, rude, and condescending. He walked out of the room in the middle of me talking as we were discussing my health when an elderly nurse told him there was water under the water dispenser in the break room. Even his judgemental nurse was taken aback by his behavior. At the front desk he threw papers at

Dr. Fenton is a wonderful rheumatologist and I recommend him to anyone needing one. I have SLE lupus, fibromyalgia, and OA. He listens to me, does an examination and refers to lab results in order fight the diseases, and responsibly treats my pain. Dr. Fenton you are a great healer!

Dr. Fenton is easy to talk to and a good listener. Always tries to resolve any problem I might have and if he can't he will find someone that will. The staff is also wonderful, they make you feel welcomed. My family and I will never switch doctors, he is the best.

Dr. Fenton REALLY listens. He has an amazing base of information. Plus, the unusual logic to convince the most pig-headed person of the value of his advice. These are gifts found only in the most committed, compassionate Physicians. A rarity.

I saw Dr. Fenton, and he administered a blood test. When the results came in, they were mailed to me, and no one called to speak with me about them. The tests showed that I had something, but I could not tell which illness. I called the office, and I could not get the doctor on the phone. They kept telling me that if HE felt they were a problem, he would call me. But I thought I had a problem and should be able to speak with my own doctor. I switched doctors and was put on RA meds.
