in Wheeling IL |
She always has time to answer questions you have about your health and explain test results. She explains things so they are easy to understand. The staff is nice and quickly check you in. The nurse is pleasant, courteous, and helpful.

She was very nice and professional, however, she misdiagnosed me.
in Lake Zurich, IL |
i don't have words to express my feelings towards her who I don't want to call a DOCTOR. My mom was going to her for last 3 years and I asked mom to go to a different doctor. Day one she visited the other doctor he found that she had Melanoma which was removed in 3 days and now we are waiting for the results. I will make sure that Sofia Elterman pays for this big time. How could she see an elderly woman for 3 years and not find this?????!!!!! She should be stripped off her license.
