Horrible experience with this so-call physician. His bed-side manner was poor and he was extremely dismissive of my symptoms. At some point during the history taking he laughed in my face, which made me feel embarrassed. During the exam he told me multiple times that I did not have anything wrong with me. Not sure how this person is practicing medicine.

Unfortunately, my insurance required that I see Dr Michael Kornblatt for a disc related injury. With a 1.5/5 average rating with 20 reviews as of this writing, my expectations were extremely low. Unsurprisingly, his abysmally low performance continued during my visit. Despite having numerous symptoms and an MRI displaying a herniated disc per the radiologists report, Dr Kornblatt used every possible attempt to minimize my injury, and verbally stated that I was fine. Go elsewhere.

My experience with this "doctor" was unacceptable- he was condescending, argumentative, unprofessional, apathetic and insulting- if he is considered an expert in his field I have grave concerns for the future- I highly recommend finding a different doctor ... hopefully you can find one with more interest healing than on saving big insurance big money by refusing necessary treatment

Then all of a sudden he scooted his chair and body within inches of my face and started yelling and screaming at me so that his spit was hitting my face. He was yelling that he had never seen a case such as mine and that I just did not want to work and that I was the type of person that didn't want to work and just have surgeries. And there was no reason he saw in my records why I should not have been able to work and go out and get a job. He then got really mad and yelled at me again

He was amazing.... He did my spinal fusion in 2008 and he took very good care of me....I need wrist surgery now I would go to him again if I still lived in Illinois......best doc ever in my opinion.....April Mallory....
