Patient Reviews (1)
in Park Ridge, IL |
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.
