in Villa Park, IL |
Worst doctor i've ever been to. Didn't listen to my symptoms and got me out of his office as quickly as possible. Told me not to worry about my pain and take advil as it seems my pain was getting better...I repeated to him that my pain was actually worse and that the pain was so bad I haven't...more

He is very rude and does not listen to what the patient. He looks like he is constantly about to fall asleep. When asked a question he never knows the answer. He is one of the worst doctors I've been too.
