Patient Comments (1)
in Beecher, illinois |
Today was my second visit with Dr. Axelrod. I can't say enough about the professionalism of this facility. I was impressed with the receptionist, nurse and all of the staff. Not only was he punctual but Dr. Axelrod was kind, patient and very knowledgeable about my concerns. He took the time to answer every last question that I had, and put any fears I had to rest. If you are in the market for another gynecologist I strongly recommend him.
