Patient Comments (4)
Elmhurst, IL |
I pointed out a spot on my leg to Dr Shelnitz and told her it was tender. She said it was nothing. Two months later I went to a new Dermatologist not associated with Elmhurst Memorial. That spot is squamous cancer. I was also billed as an outpatient by Elmhurst Memorial in addition to being billed by Dr. Shelnitz.

Dr Shelnitz never keeps me waiting and has always been efficient and thorough in dealing with me as a patient.

Dr. shelnitz is thorough and has great follow through. I have found her caring and helpful once I was diagnosed with Malenoma.
Lombard, IL |
She treated me like I didn't know what I was talking about. I told her my concerns and she spent the next 20 minutes talking to me like I'm imagining my symptoms or perhaps she thought I was simply stupid. She never truly addressed my concerns, but spouted what she must repeat on a daily basis about what happens to the majority. If she ever wanted a good bedside manner, she shouldn't ignore her patients concerns and speak to them like she is superior to them.
