He is a horrible doctor. Obviously he doesn't care about the patient. He ignored notes from my previous doctor. He basically did not do a thunk for me. He would ask me a question about my injury then he would ignore your reply. He told me I can still work even though I can't with my injury. So now I lose my job over his lack of listening skills and concern for the patient. I would highly recommend seeing someone else. He doesn't care about the patient just the $$$ from the insurance.

Just called 630-499-4711 and receptionist was very rude and mentioned to hurry with my complaint because I am waisting her time . I was referred from ER and going to go back to ER and suggest not to refer patient to such a very unprofessional office .
