Dr Cmejrek and his office staff is the worst around. They dropped the ball on my husband's care numerous times. He was originally scheduled for allergy skin testing. Office messed up not realizing his current meds and had to cancel. Ordered a RAST test instead which is hardly accurate. Husband had CT ordered, staff insisted he get it done at Franciscan Health only to have to have entire CT repeated at their office to map out sugery markings. Office is not very accomodating. Will never return.

I went to Dr Cmejrek for a second opinion and was glad I did. He reviewed my CT scan with me and we decided together what the best course of action would be moving forward. The first surgeon I saw was going to do needless surgery on me and told me there would be no other option. Thank goodness for honest doctors like Dr Cmejrek who take the sensible approach. I feel comfortable knowing I'm not being rushed into surgery. The staff was also fantastic and kind.

At first I was impressed as the Dr seemed to know what he was doing. I told him my nose was tightly plugged with mucous. Then he stuck a scope up my nose to "take a look" but removed it quickly because he couldn't see anything due to the thick mucous. DUH? He gave me some medicine that didn't clear me up but made my sinus drier and stuffier. Then he charged $500.00 for the scope. Of course I did not go back.

This is the worst Dr to see. He always over talk you. He also tells you how you should feel. Let me not forget you better have a bank roll when you go to this office because they are money hungryyy.
