Northbrook, IL |
Dr. Petchenik was very thorough with his exam, diagnosis, and treatment plan for my deviated septum enlarged tonsil and tonsil stones. Post surgery he checked on me and follow up appointments went well. Highly recommend for septoplasty and tonsillectomy procedures.
Park Ridge, IL |
Dr Petchenik saw my son who apparently had ear infection, however we were over and over told by our primary care physician that there was nothing to worry about, "let's try yet another generic antibiotic" - while his condition was visibly progressing to worse. Dr Petchenik in 10 minutes saw the actual problem, and rushed him to the surgery. In several more hours the infection would penetrate ear drum and reach the brain causing irreversible damage or death. Saved his life.

I was sent to Dr. Petchenik as a consult to look at a bump on my nose. The office was nice, the appointment was easy to schedule and took place on time. I was in-and-out of the office in under 15 minutes after having ample time with the doctor to address my concerns No procedures were conducted and he recommended that I consult a dermatologist instead of him. My poor experience began when I found out that I was billed over $350 for this visit.

I waited in Dr. Petcheniks office for 20 minutes. I tried to explain to him my symptoms, but he would constantly talk over me. He was typing so fast and talking so fast that I actually started having a vertigo attack (due to my inner ear problem). It seemed as if he wanted nothing more then to have me out of that room as soon as possible. One of the worst medical field experiences of my existence. He then called to tell me, nothing he could do for my problem. Bought a Ear popper and was fixed.
