La Grange, IL |
Dr. P is awesome. He is friendly, easy to talk to, and knows his field very well. He took great care of both myself and my mother.

Had an appointment to remove stitches. I had to wait 30 minutes just for a medical assistant to remove them. The reason for the long wait was being skipped over. A later patient got my time slot due to front staff making an oopsie. I know this because the front staff was talking about it to eachother. I overheard everything but there was no apology by anyone for the long wait. Once I saw the medical assistant she was nice and took the stitches out but when I got home I noticed she left some in.

Very disappointed and we'll never visit this office again! We had to do some biopsy to my husband and before we made appointment we called asked for the price. W/o health insurance is going to cost $220 and we'll pay 50% off. Deal! When the time came to go back and take the stitches off and visit lasted only 5 min we were charged another $230. Then!!! we were told-not explained- that we have to pay for pathology. Received a call today they added more $$$. Don't waste your money in that office!!!
Hello Gordana, Sorry for any confusion related to the billing process. Due to the increasing cost of health care, we discount all services to our self-pay patients by 50 percent. Even so, the total bill can be expensive if procedures and/or follow-up visits are needed. We aim to be up-front about all of the involved costs when treating our patients and again apologize for any confusion. Please call us if you have any further questions about the billing process. Thank you for the feedback.

Dr. Podjasek is extremely caring and makes you feel very comfortable. This is especially important when I bring my teenage daughter. Our skin is looking much better now and I'm very happy. But I feel like it was the combination of caring and treatment that made all the difference. Best dermatologist ever!

Dr. Podjasek is very caring and really cares about what you have to say. He never seems rushed and wants to just take care of your issue. Both me and my daughter go to him and are very happy. I would recommend him 110%
in Beaver Dam, WI |
Dr. Podjasek is the nicest doctor I have interacted with in a long time. He has the greatest bedside manners I've ever encountered. Not to mention, after seeing countless doctors, I finally have a correct diagnosis for my skin condition. He was extremely knowledgeable and I wish every doctor was as pleasant as he is!
