Dr. Bukhalo is highly knowledgeable, thorough and cares very much about treating my issues effectively. Not only does he have the best bedside manner, he listens to my concerns and questions and either has an answer or finds it. His follow through is excellent. His staff is wonderful as well. Occasionally I wait a bit but am happy to as I know he is taking the time needed with everyone as he does with me. I wish Dr. Bukhalo could serve all my medical needs!

Dr Bukhalo is an excellent physician. I was assigned to him while in the hospital and have had nothing but great results. His bedside manner is second to none .He remembered my family members from 6 months ago and always asks how they are as well as how I am. I would recommend his service to anyone and will come back to him in the future. Dr Bukhalo truly cares about his patients and their needs, and not because he has to I believe he wants to.

He is a very compassionate and dedicated doctor. Being in constant pain, he understands the need for pain control as well as safe conditions, not over medicating. I have been with him for years and would recommend him. Professional and courteous.
in Mount Prospect, IL |
Dr. Bukhalo is very thorough and shows compassion to his patients. He is determined to find solutions to my pain management. Follow-up appointments are scheduled promptly. Office staff is friendly and efficient. I know several friends who have benefited greatly from his care.

Dr. Bukhalo has been my pain management physician for more than 5 years. I find him to be courteous, caring professional in his manner. He speaks to you to find out where is your pain, how severe it is, and the best way to treat it. I feel as though we have become friends and I would entrust him with any pain issue that I have. Thanks Dr bukhalo!
Dr Bukhalo has a great sense of humor and is willing to answer any questions. People seem to be giving him a bad reputation because of his drug testing policy. He has to do, no choice about it! Maybe those who complain are the ones who don't test clean. His staff have always been great to work with although Dr B is very busy and tries to fit in as many patients as possible.

Takes time to listen to issues. Makes you feel comfortable in the office, not all stuck up.
in palatine, il |
Never less than an hour wait for 2 minutes of him making you feel like a drug seeker and that nothing is wrong with you. Worst doctor I've ever seen
Arlington Heights, IL |
Visited 2x's w/my mother-in-law, and once for me (only choice in my health plan). Be prepared to WAIT and WAIT. The office turns no one away, as they are pain specialists, so serious delays common. Office space upgraded due to recent move, but registration forms not online, as I was told. I searched. I spent 45minutes in an exam room, alone in a hospital gown, before spending under 10 minutes with the Doctor. He sent his PA on first!?! I can explain myself, directly, and want to meet the doctor
in Chicago, IL |
Currently seeing this doctor in the hospital. His initial consultation seemed logical and fair, after looking at my current CT scan, I was told that there wasn't anything wrong with me (although the CT and other docs disagree), my IV pain meds would be discontinued and to follow up with my primary for medication as soon as the other doctors got their acts together to discharge me. Inturrupted, refused questions, walked out. Wasn't surprised to see IME among credentials. Inhumane. Reporting
Des Plaines, IL |
Dr Bukhalo's nurses are very rude and have treated me like I am a drug seeker when i am not, I told them I was in so much pain after I had just seen Dr Bukalo, they told me to go to the ER! Also after 6 months of seeing him, he still is uncertain as to what is causing my pain. He does order tests at least to keep trying to find the problem. But is not good at helping manage my pain so far. He just recently prescribed me tramadol which isn't helping much. The injections don't help my nerve pain.
in Vernon Hills |
I cannot thanks enough Dr. Bukhalo for his careful review of my MRI and finding problem that all my previous doctors could not even see. He is very kind, professional, pays attention to the details, cares about his patients and quickly responds to phone calls and inquiries. I would strongly recommend Dr. Bukhalo.
