I have seen Dr Later and continue to do so. He has always been professional and caring, no negative feedback thus far.
in Glencoe, IL |
My wife was a patient of Dr. Later and we wholeheartedly agree with the person from Schaumburg il on his review of Dr. Later. Dr. Laters d diagnosis of my wife was incorrect, he said she didn't have cancer but she did and does have cancer. He was extremely unprofessional when it to test results and test.. My wife is worse than the first time she saw Dr. Later.
in FOx Lake, Illinois |
Since I am experiencing some memory loss I was apprehensive to even discover what was going on with me. I have NEVER met a Doctor that I respected more than this Dr. He understood my confusion and carefully and patiently explained every detail of his approach. This is my sister's email site (Charlene Engle) who has been present at each appointment. She and the entire family are grateful and impressed.
Schaumburg, Il. |
Please do NOT see this doctor. He looks normal, even nice. I saw him once. Big mistake. He was hostile and in a terrible mood. He wanted to do a procedure that was not necessary, as his diagnosis was wrong. Again, his diagnosis was wrong!!! He has a negative and unkind manner in speaking with staff and patients. It's time to retire. He looks much older in person. He was so annoyed n rebuffed most of my questions.Not skilled. Incorrect diagnosis, and really mean and irritable. Google another doc.
