While I do think his interpersonal skills need improving I do think he was fair. My complaint is the billing department for EEhealth and the clinic in Elmhurst. Went in for a simple physical and blood test. Picked a doctor off of my insurance website that was in network. Asked a few questions and was charged a $78 fee that my insurance said they had no business charging. Then the blood work they tacked on a $110.00 preventative fee that my insurance said should not have been added. Bad Billing!

Doesn't listen to patients. Terrible bedside manner. Too quick to diagnose and provide pills. I would never see this doctor again.

Doesn't take the time to listen to the patient.. Too quick to diagnose with 'post nasal drip and ear infection' turned out to be RSV pneumonia. Big difference. Not very good bedside manner.
