Patient Comments (5)
Wilmette, IL |
This office is very poorly run. The staff is rude and insensitive . Dr Ruchims policy is no appointment without a credit card as clearly the priority is making money and not caring for patients. if youre in a hurry dont call this office!
Chicago, IL |
He diagnosed a very difficult problem that others could not figure out. He spent a lot of time with me and showed a lot of compassion.
Chicago, IL |
Dr.Ruchim does not follow-up with his patient,.even after writing instructions, for his patient instructions to purchase items for treatment. He does not honor appointments. After the recommended treatment....he told me to call his office and inform him how the it worked.The office visit appeared to to go well....When I called to inform of the treatment.He told me I was not his patient. I was ill and had to find another doctor. what did he expect me to do, after following his recommendations?
in Chicago, IL |
Only in office Mondays and Wednesdays. So if you leave a message on Wednesday, there is at least a 5 day wait for a callback.
in Chicago, IL |
4 days, 3 messages later with no callback. Need endoscopy asap. Had to find another MD.
