Chicago, IL |
I recently had a run with a tumor known as myofibroma. I needed an ENT to do this surgery as it isn't your every day surgeons business to attempt this surgery. He did an amazing job and my recovery was fast and the incision is barely noticeable, even though it was approximately 1 inch. Very polite personality as well.

2012 Dr Borrowdale, performed throat surgery on my dad who at the time was 77 yrs old. After which my dad could not use his right arm, can NOT eat, can NOT produce saliva and said "well we read the film wrong-it happens"!!! Now at 82 yrs old my poor father is extremely thin always dehydrated and can not do a heck of a lot because he is so frail and only has use of his left arm! I wanted to sue then but my father said he would probably die before all the litigation is over.

My mother, who is almost 100 years of age, was referred to Dr. Borrowdale by Edwards Hospital. She had what was diagnosed as a benign tumor on her upper lip. After seeing Dr. Borrowdale and his team several times, and receiving options for treatment, the decision was made to remove the tumor, which turned out to be malignant. Dr.Borrowdale and his team, including Dr.Pittman, were amazing, explaining all facets of the surgery. Thanks to their expert care, she is doing well!! So thankful to him!

I met Dr Barrowdale when i was referred to him by my cancer doctors.There was no one in my healthcare system that was qualified to do the surgery i needed. I met him and his team on the day of my consultation .He was very professional as well was his team .i knew after seeing him that he was the one to do my surgery and that i would be in good hands.surgery went well and as expected .Dr Barrowdale,his team,and Loyola were the best place for me to have my surgery done .I highly recommend him.

Dr. Borrowdale rushed through a surgery on a holiday weekend in order to go away for the weekend. Instead of taking just a portion of my thyroid as I had agreed, he not only took my entire thyroid, but also destroyed my parathyroid glands in the process. This has been life-altering for me. This man will never know - or care - that he took a vibrant woman and literally disabled her. Heartbreaking.
