Patient Comments (5)
in Mount Prospect, IL |
My procedure was switched without me or my PCP being informed. Physicians assistants could/would not answer questions. I received conflicting information from one person to the next. Many of my calls were not returned. Rather than reassuring me when voicing questions I had about his concerns with my liver he berated me over the phone.

I have been a patient of Dr. Kane for over 10 years. He has performed multiple procedures on me throughout the years and I have always had the ultimate confidence in him. However, recently it feels as though he has become too busy to actually treat his patients. At my most recent appointment I felt as though he was annoyed with the fact that I was still in pain post-op and basically accused me of drug seeking. Unfortunately I will be looking for a new doctor.

I seen Dr. Kane for revision surgery I had 20yrs ago. Dr. Kane assured me that he was going to help me. When I had my first surgery I didn't have to go through such a thorough program but Dr. Kane's program started the same day with testing. I received a call from Dr. Kane not a nurse or a receptionist to tell me what the next step was. He is a great Dr. as well as his staff. There is no wait in the office and answered all questions I had. I will update my post after surgery in June.

While Dr. Kane was very nice, the incompetence of the office staff forced me to switch surgeons. Never worked with a more keystone cop medical office in my life.

Dr. Kane is great, but there is such a rude and incompetent front desk staff and the rudest billing supervisor I have ever met. This office has really declined in customer service. So glad I don't have to visit there anymore. Watch them - they bill wrong, mess up insurance billing and forget to collect co-pays and then penalize the patient for their incompetence.
