If you need a doctor who will only take minimal time with you in order to keep on schedule, go somewhere else. Dr. Francis is the first and most thorough rheumatologist I have seen. I have been to Mayo, Rush, Loyola, and countless others. I have missed less work and felt better under her care than ever before. I am an extremely complicated case and appreciate she is thorough and listens to me. I've had infusions in office and loved her support staff. She has done ultrasound guided injections too
in Shorewood, IL |
She seemed nice and caring during the initial visit but after that you could never reach her. Her office staff was useless and said they couldn't get a hold of her. I usually have good instincts about people but not this time. My son in law is experiencing the same problems with her right now that I had. So, mine was not just a conflict or misunderstanding.
