I have been a patient of Dr. Giakas for 4 years. I have been billed incorrectly multiple times and the office staff has been rude and unresponsive to my question most of the time. If Dr. Gaikas himself was a effective psychiatrist this would be acceptable however this has not been my experience of him. I have brought medicine related concerns to Dr. Gaikas's attention on several occasions during the 15 times or so I have seen him. Dr. Gaikas has not treated my concerns with interest or respect.

I am a patient in Dr Giakis' practice. I have not seen him but I think that's great. I'd rather see the nurse practitioner and a therapist than waste the time of a psychiatrist. The NP I see (Colette) has been excellent. I'm not terribly impressed with all of the office staff but have been satisfied with my therapist. My wait time review reflects my therapist and NP visits as I have not see the doctor.

My first 4 appointments he came in 20 minutes after my appointment time and no apology. My 5th (and FINAL) appointment I waited until 15 minutes after my appointment time and left. I told the receptionist why I was leaving and that I will be finding a new doctor, no apologies again. She said Alright, I will let him know, thank you. The receptionist then called me 20 minutes after I left and said, Dr Giakas wanted me to call and apologize and said he can see you now. Unacceptable!

Doctor Giakas is ALWAYS late for appointments, never apologizes and has you out the door as quickly as possible. The Nurse Practitioners are always on time and wonderful to work with, but Doctor Giakas cares about his bottom line, not his patients.
in Rockford, IL |
His staff talk about confidential patient information in front of other people, which is super unethical. Some of my friends who see him say they've been at his practice for years and have never once seen him for a personal appointment. He just has his nurses do all the work for him.
