Patient Comments (2)
Palatine, IL |
Horrible bedside manner, horrible condescending attitude, acts like he knows what he’s doing but he really has no clue. His treatments are outdated and he isn’t aware of more current methods of surgery. Should not handle anything lung related whatsoever. He botched my surgery, if you’re scheduled for surgery now ..cancel!! Find a more capable man. This guy is all ego with no skill. Had big problems communicating and showing genuine car for patients.

He performed a surgery on me that failed. I always have the impression when he is talking to me that he is being condescending. He has little education or experience with my condition yet he acts like an expert. Instead of putting his ego aside and genuinely being concerned and helping me, I left the office feeling as if he was treating me like I was an idiot. I am seeing a different doctor now.
