I saw Romaneschi for a post cancer treatment annual check up. To his credit he did see new cancer on my larynx (different place than previous treatment) and performed a biopsy which confirmed it. But then he said he was referring me to a good doctor who would perform a laryngectomy. I inquired about treatment such as radiation. He said no; can undergo radiation only once. I immediately went to my cancer treatment physician/hospital and was told, "No, this is in a difference spot, is small/stage one, and treatable with radiation." And that is exactly what we did. In essence, Romaneschi is a quack. Romaneschi should NEVER have told me that.

He diagnosed me with parotid cancer and did a 10 hour surgery. He is an amazing surgeon. He explained everything so I could understand it. Very patient and very caring. Has a great staff of people working there. If you need surgery on head and neck, he is the doc. Awesome.

I had seen another ENT prior to seeing Dr. Romaneschi. The other ENT kept scheduling follow up visits but never diagnosed me with anything. After a simple consultation with Dr. Romaneschi  he immediately knew what was wrong and put me on the right path to healing. I am so grateful for his knowledge, kindness and expertise. I highly recommend Dr. Romaneschi.

Had a painful procedure that didn't work to relive my inability to breath through my nose. My follow-up appointment was with a PA to remove splints from my nose. She didn't realize there was another set of stitches and tried to rip the splint out anyway. Ouch! Made a follow up appointment to ask why the procedure didn't work. After waiting for almost an hour and a half I walked out. It's a nice place with nice staff but seems to be a money mill.

Dr. Romaneschi removed my daughter's tonsils which were continuously getting infected. We had a second opinion lined up but cancelled after meeting with him because we were so impressed with is diagnosis and explanations and therefore convinced it was the right thing to do. He was very thorough and even sat with her after the surgery to make sure she was ok. He also followed up with a phone call the next day. Her recovery was exceptional which I believe is due to his excellence as a surgeon.

I saw Dr. Romaneschi for paralyzed vocal cords due to a complication from a neck fusion I had a couple of months ago. He was very caring, professional, down to earth, and made me feel at ease. His office has me scheduled for surgery in less than two weeks. Amazing doctor and staff!

First time visit was disappointing. Waited in waiting room for 45 min. Appt was at 8:15 I arrived at 8 am (since they tell you to arrive 15 min early) got called in at 8:45. Dr spent a lot of time with previous patient so my "new patient" appt., I felt, was cut very short. Didn't ask about my history. Spent about 15 min with me, didn't ask if I had any questions. Used the same tip to look at ears and nose which grossed me out. Then charged me $170 for sub par visit.

Dr. Romaneschi is one of the few physicians I have meet that truly cares. He is approachable and responds with detailed, patient explanations to any concerns. His level of expertise and extensive experience creates a peace of mind that enabled me as well as my son to undergo surgery with peace of mind. I truly feel Dr. Romaneschi gave my family his best, and I will return to him without hesitation.

My Name is Claude Smith.I went to Dr Romaneschi for a problem causing me to clear mucus from my throat for 10 minutes after eating. I made one trip to Dr Romaneschi and he cured the problem. I was abusing coffee , whole milk and chocolate big time. Using his advice I changed my diet and basically reduced to a minimum .. coffee and whole milk I had every day for breakfast .. changed to no lactose milk and limited coffee to 1/2 cup and NO chocolate muffins. He is an excellent ENT Doc

After 4 previous surgeries from well renowned hospitals in Chicago, my polyps grew in a way that closed off my nose. I couldn't sleep, couldn't breath, and overall did not feel as good as I could be. When Dr. Romaneshi recommended surgery I really didn't want to do it because every time previously it was only a temporary fix. Not this time. Surgery was great and he put me on a maintenance program which keeps my nose open. I would recommend him to anyone.

I had been suffering sinus polyps for most of my life and turned to Dr Romaneschi for what is now a life changing operation. I had always thought that a lot of pain and discomfort accompanied this surgery, but was I WRONG! Dr Romaneschi did a wonderful job, and I am now no longer a mouth-breather. He explained everything in detail, then gave me the option of the surgery. I will never regret my decision to have Dr. Romaneschi free me from 50 years of misery. The office staff are great.
