Very nice doctor with a good bedside manner. Long wait occasionally and have felt rushed a few times but if an emergency the office will get you in as soon as possible. Unfortunately, I've not found the front desk staff (Joliet) to be very courteous.

Front desk receptionist was not professional in her manner of dress or in the way she spoke. We felt we were bothering her.

Excellent Retinal Specialist

Seems like he really knows his stuff. Perhaps a little too confident at times in his opinions but is willing to listen. Very intelligent and very up-to-date on the latest treatments. Willing to spend the time required and answer any questions. Highly recommend.
