Patient Comments (2)
in Chicago, IL |
I went to Dr. Kahrilas after many months of stomach pain, distension, and an abnormal amount of burping. I have GERD and instead of taking the time to consider anything else, he laughed at my burping complaint, implied that it was all in my head, and prescribed pills for reflux. I got a second opinion and discovered that my gall bladder was completely non functioning; I had gall bladder removal surgery weeks later. Kahrilas was disrespectful & dismissive. Thank God for second opinions.

Dr. Kahrilas' staff provided me with an incorrect billing code prior to (as well as the day of) a procedure, which has been causing issues regarding insurance coverage. I've been going around in circles with my insurance and Northwestern for months, trying to get the mess sorted out. Meanwhile, my insurance company can't get a shred of documentation from Kahrilas, and I can't get so much as a phone call or MyChart message. I wouldn't recommend him to anyone.
