He's just ok...but his staff is AWFUL!! Actually they redefine TERRIBLE!! They are RUDE and INCOMPETENT!! Ifor you have the option go to his location in Crest Hill over New Lenox and thank me later!!

Absolutely the worst. He and his office staff have a clear miscommunication when it comes to informing their patients on medical information. He's not attentive. Nor does he make the effort to actually address the problem and find a solution. Very disappointed with my treatment plan and his oblivion and delay towards my request for him to fill out forms for me to return back to work. Because of him I lost 2 weeks worth of pay. Never going back to this particular neurologist that's for sure!

Was referred to this doctor after an ER trip with stroke symptoms but luckily it was not. However, I am having some serious ongoing and increasing symptoms . The doctor ordered two tests then didnt seem concerned with the couple of spots on my brain, was focused on RARE headaches I had and then when I became angry he decided to do another test, essentially one of the same only with contrast. He doesnt listen to me and my concerns of the issues I have had for two years now. Horrible Doctor.

What is wrong with medicine? Doctors seem not to be willing to do, awful experience, even depressing.
Joliet, IL |
AWFUL. Walked in yawning. Bed side manner, ZERO. Personality. ZERO Will not return for follow-up. Will find someone who cares enough to hear the service provided, which was beyond poor. Including the nurse.
in Aurora |
Horrible experience..Doctor had no willingness to communicate during treatment, so I had no idea what he was doing until I asked his nurse. After his exam he walked out abruptly with no explanation of what was done or what would be included on any next steps...two weeks later he still has not released his findings to my primary doctor. STILL in pain...avoid this doctor.
