Bolingbrook, IL |
I hadn't read the best reviews about this doctor, but I was very pleasantly surprised. He was thorough, kind, and smart.
Chicago, IL |
After two days of phones calls, I finally spoke with someone to be told this doctor will not see my daughter because she missed an appointment back in October (car accident, sorry you were not the first person that came to mind). For a doctor to turn away a child that's having head aches to the point of getting dizzy shows a lot. Your receptionist saying "sorry there's nothing we can do" isn't enough. In the end, I'm glad my daughter will not be seen by you.

Dr Katerji has been great, it's unfortunate that his staff and the inability of answering/returning calls and noting proper appointments is what chases people away from him. The staff at Evergreen couldn't even read his appt schedule and the "answering service" for appts has yet to return my calls (but willing to call my husband back and not me). I know the loss of one patient/visit means nothing to you all at this point but it was about the care of my 4-yr old.

Worst answering service. Very very difficult to get in touch with anyone at office to clarify any questions regarding medications or tests or anything. The office staff really need to be more accesible.
Trying to make an appointment is impossible. No one answers the phone, so you leave a message. When they call you back, they leave a message. The message is to call them back. It's been four days now and I still haven't been able to schedule an appointment. There has to be an easier way!
