Finally my sugars are doing very good
Plainfield, IL |
Dr. Wassim El-Harake is very personable and genuine; I have much respect for him. There are, however, a few things he needs to work on.....mostly his tardiness. I usually have to wait about an hour and a half to see him, because he always gets to the office a few hours late (& has many patients ahead of me that he hasn't seen yet). This has a drastic effect on my time with him. Type 1 Diabetes is a very serious illness and I cannot afford to be shuffled along.

I have seen him twice, the only reason why I went back was because my primary Dr is in same office. I have a issue I know nothing about an he was the most dismissive and defensive Dr I've ever seen. You pay copay and he's in the office for 5 minutes. And don't dare try to ask a question. Searching for new doctor because I feel awful. Then they have you on hold when you call forever. Awful
