For your own health, stay away from him. He cares only for himself... If anything goes wrong, you are in trouble.

We should be able to put zero stars. We took our son to see Dr. Lieber for a hip injury. Dr. Lieber rushed through the entire visit. He was extremely rude with what little he did say and spoke with his back to us the entire time! He didn't explain anything regarding the injury. When we tried to ask questions he was dismissive. As a patient you would expect the physician to provide a diagnosis with some sort of guidance, not to be so dismissive. He has absolutely no bed side/patient manners!

He was aweful. Very short. Very rude. Basically asked us what we thought he should do. A week later and tons of problems still. Now I need to pay for a 2nd opinion. So frustrated!

Went in for a broken shoulder, he charged me over $1200 for a 15 minute office visit!!!! After speaking with MANY people (at least 7) in the office, no one can tell me why the $1200 charge... no one! I was bounced from person to person and still no one knows. He acted as if I should have known the answers to my questions, he deals with broken bones daily... not me! I do not like him, I do not appreciate the staffs lack of ability to help, I will not go back!!

I was worried after reading negative reviews about Dr. Lieber, but I had a wonderful experience with him. Courteous, friendly, patient (and I had a 12/31 - New Years Eve appointment) and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend him for hip issues!

Be careful with this doc. He gives bogus IME reviews. He spent no time with me and no way he looked at my MRI (I walked from the room 15 feet to the bathroom and back and they handed my disc said he looked at it). He hit me in the area that I’m in pain with made more pain but “nothing wrong fit for duty” Was very very rude.

If I could give zero stars, I would. Please stay as far away from this doctor as humanly possible. He rushed through my diagnosis and explained nothing to me. He did not allow me the time to explain what symptoms I was feeling nor did he ask me how I obtained my injury. When I asked to for explanations he stated nothing was wrong. I brought my sister with me, who is a nurse, so she could ask questions I did not think of. He was even more disrespectful toward her. When I asked the nurse to fill o

In 12/2010. Dr. Lieber performed a knee replacement of my left knee. There were issues from the beginning. When he took out the staples, I bled for over an hour (maybe it should be said I "leaked" for that long, this wasn't true blood). Even the x-ray tech this wasn't normal. My leg was swollen and red, the scar never healed all the way, and all Lieber would say, "This may happen." 9 months later? 10 day hospital stay, surgery redo and a MRSA infection.

I called as a past customer of Dr Lieber, with special circumstances as my husband lost his job and we have no insurance. Lieber did two hip replacements for me, I am having trouble with one of the hip replacements thinking that I could get an xray with special circumstances. The person that answered the call was very rude, that is unfortunate.I have worked my whole life and paid all my bills, but I did not know that when someone is down and out that people can make you feel so bad about yourse

After looking my xrays, he asked how I got injured. I told him it happened while weight lifting, he said that weightlifting is bad for shoulders but gave no alternatives. He "examined" my shoulder by doing ~4 basic special tests. We discussed the pain & he said to take Aleve & keep exercising my shoulder(?!) - if things got worse, to come back for a cortisone injection. He has NO bedside manner. I already complained to BCBS about him. DO NOT waste your time or money with this thief.

He did knee replacement surgery on me and it was a surprisingly easy and a relatively pain-minimal experience. He made clear that my participation in the process was important, pre and post op. Supplied plenty of information and staff contacts and classes for me to take which helped me better prepare myself. I found him to be very kind, personable and attentive. Most importantly, he did a great job on my knee. If/when the other knee goes, I will be calling him!

We had to wait an hour and a half for him to tell us "he didn't go to med school to write doctors notes". He asked us how long the note should stand for, but said he had no idea how long my arm would take to heal.

Dr. Lieber did total knee replacements on both my wife and I. We found him to be extremely professional, knowledgeable, and concerned about returning us to daily life, without pain. He is grounded, understands your anxiety and is willing to answer questions to help reduce fear. I would highly recommend him.

He is by far one of the most rude doctors I have ever met. Stay away from this guy. I wouldn't trust him let alone let him operate on me. He spent all of 10 minutes with me never really making me feel like he cared. The most un compassionate man I have ever met. I will look else where for another doctor. The employee moral was terrible and all the women at the front desk did was complain about there personal problems.

I have been a patient at DuPage Medical Group for a long time! Dr. Park was my treating or tho Dr. but he left the practice. Someone suggested Dr. Lieber!!! As soon as he walked in I knew he had an attitude problem! I know my knees are bad, bone on bone, no cartilage, arthritis, BC I am in a lot of pain everyday!!! I just am not ready for the surgery as of now!!! I was there for a cortisone shot in both knees! All he kept harping on was surgery! This was my first, and LAST visit with him!

He was knowledgeable, friendly and efficient. I got a cortisone shot for my shoulder problem, no pain from shot, and I felt somewhat better immediately. He recommended physical therapy to strengthen my shoulder now which is exactly what I'd hoped for. Highly recommend!

Dr. Lieberman is hands down the best doctor I've encountered at Dupage. He listened to me, I never felt rushed, he was patient and calm, just what I needed. My health issues are stressful & he made me feel like it was all going to be ok. He seemed like a nice guy. The type of person I'd have as a friend. His staff, from the front desk thru the discharge nurse, was kind, patient and seemed genuinly concerned. This office is an example of how good it can be. Take heed Dupage.

To finish my review---Dr. Lieberman acted like treating my ankle was not worthy of his time. To me a broken ankle is a big deal and affects my whole life....I would never recommend anyone ever go see this doctor!!!
