I was referred Dr. Romberg by a family member who lives in the greater Chicago area. I have needed an operation for about 6 years when I met Dr. Romberg. He was a clear communicator who allowed me to feel calm and confident about the surgery I needed to get. I was nervous in the OR before and after the surgery and he was there the whole time to remind me that I was safe. I do not hope I have to get another surgery ever in life, but if I do I know that I could not trust anyone more for it than Dr. Romberg.

Never having surgery before, I was initially terrified hearing that my hernia would need to be repaired surgically. My fear quickly resided after spending about 2 minutes discussing with Dr. Romberg. He was very knowledgeable with great bedside manner and from the beginning, it was obvious he cared about me as a human being first and foremost (unlike some others I'd seen...). My surgery and recovery went great and today I am back to being 100%. One thing I never thought of until meeting Dr. Romberg was how beneficial it is for my general surgeon to also be a specialist in wound care .Thankfully my incision site healed perfectly, but knowing I was already in the right hands if there was a wound healing issue was VERY comforting to say the least... Thank you Dr. Romberg!! -Chris

Dr. Romberg was my second opinion. The first surgeon wanted to immediately do surgery. I was told by a friend of mine to go see Dr. Romberg and my prayers were answered. He is very knowlegable and he took the time to explain things to me. I knew immediately that this guy would do me right! He made me feel better about making my decision. I was scared at first going into his clinic but his staff will make you feel immediately at home (very friendly Diana, Daniel -- Tina his nurse) and treated me with respect ! I prayed for this doctor and I thank God that this doctor came into my life! Dr. Romberg has helped me get the care I so needed and I am recovering well from surgery. I hope everyone reads this because this doctor does good! He is a humble man and he does his patients good!

Dr. Romberg is an AMAZING physician. I was treated for a lipoma removal which I had for 8 years. I refused to have it removed due to anxiety and fear. Tina and Dr. Romberg eases my fears, and had a very successful recovery. This was one of the best experiences I have had with a doctor, ever. Tina is compassionate, caring and will listen to everything you need. If you’re looking for the best care, look no further. You will not be disappointed. K. Baum, Highland, Indiana

Dr Romberg is an excellent surgeon. I started seeing him in 2016, From the 1st visit Dr. Bromberg and Tina helped me through a very hard time in my life. They were so compassionate and didn't make me feel like just another patient. It's rare to find a physician who cares so much about the well-being of his patients.. I strongly recommend this Dr.and staff.

I called so many doctors in the south side and NO ONE would take my insurance or even give me the time of day. When I called Dr. Romberg's office, I was greeted and made to feel like a real person. From start to finish, from Dr. Romberg's nurse in his office to Ingalls hospital nurses and the operating room, recovery room nurses---I have had nothing but the BEST experience! Thank you for taking good care of me! A+ all across the board for my overall experience! -Veronica Mills

My experience with Dr. Romberg was excellent, he made me feel comfortable and reassured me that treatment and Surgery will Go well. His staff demonstrated the same. Based on my first visit with him, when I felt i was having a similiar issue, he was the first doctor i had in mind. So i scheduled to see him, I was given a next day appointment. His staff and also him offered the same excellent experience i had the first time. I would recommend him and his staff to anyone I know. Thanks Dr. Romberg
