Patient Comments (6)
in Chicago Ridge, IL |
I'm very satisfied with the treatment that I have received from doc. sweiss she helped me when no other doc. could and the people that I have recommended have no complaints and thanked me for recommending them to her when she did what she did for me I called her my angle
Chicago, IL |
Had to switch docs when my insurance changed and found Dr. Sweiss. Brought ALL my prior records, waited 3 hrs to spend about 5 mins and wasn't even able to get all of my questions answered before I was shooed out the door. Although I have a well documented history of chronic pain, she claims I was "too young and intellectual" for it and refused to put it on my record leaving it impossible for me to get treatment. Was told she was the best but I wasn't treated with any empathy or compassion

If you would like to spend 3+ hours waiting for 7 minutes of her time, she is the doc for you. You will only get half of those 7 minutes though, as she will be busy reading her text messages, rather than listening to you. She is a nightmare.

I came to Dr.Nadera Sweiss because she was reported to be an expert in autoimmune diseases. I had been exposed to mold on my job and I have a history of Sarcoidosis,an autoimmune disease that effected my lungs. I had shortness of breath and pain due to inflammation. Why is it that she does not seem to know that mold will exacerbated a respiratory condition? My primary doctor said it exacerbated it not caused as she put in my medical records that there is no evidence that it does. A case study.

Dr. Sweiss is very nice and smart. The one problem is that the staff does not follow with reports, scheduling of procedures such as mri etc. They takes a long time to get back to you. When you are in such pain and not sure of your dignosis, it's important to hear from your doctor. Had to find another doctor due to this problem.
Chicago, IL |
The worst doctor imaginable, she does not know the meaning of the word compassion.
