Upon arrival the front desk staff said you have co payment of.., not hello, good morning. Doctor was nice but condescending, I will admit I was emotional (due to pain) but he didn't listen when I tried to speak, he repeatedly interrupted me mid sentence. I was only trying to correct his information in regards to my situation. I felt he had an agenda before even listening to entire situation. Office was NOT chartless which I found surprising since they have several locations and physicians.

Had a bulging disc in my neck about three years ago. Got 3 cortisone shots within 6-7 months. No pain ever since. Knows his stuff.
in Huntley, IL |
After being treated by the Illinois Pain INstitiute and Dr Prunskis, I found the staff slow and incompetent and the staff very ready to perform costly and painful; procedures without a real plan in place.
