Morton, IL |
My son had chronic strep throat and was referred to Dr. Gootee for an adenotonsillectomy. He was very friendly and personable at the consult and made our son feel at ease. The day of surgery, he met with us pre-op and answered all our questions. He also met with us post-op to explain how the surgery went. Would definitely recommend!

Stay away. You won't even get to see the doctor. His assistant does everything and you barely meet him.
My high-school aged daughter arrived at her appointment 15 minutes early as they requested. She waited 55 minutes PAST her appointment time before she was called back. Dr Gootee spent less than 4 minutes with her and did not order the audiogram that was the reason she went. 35 minutes travel time one-way, 15 minutes early, 55 minutes past appointment.... for 3 minutes of doctor's time. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS DOCTOR.

Took his time. Very thorough and compassionate. He didn't rush me and answered all my questions. He did my surgery and I am very happy with the care I received.
