  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Too good for me

The first time we went to go see Dr. Fojtek, he was practically falling asleep at his desk, so needless to say, his concentration on me was not there at all. He bragged about himself too much. Not very efficient in my eyes.

Never met the Dr., Office staff was so bad that we left within 10 mins of arriving for first appointment after being treated like dirt by the receptionist and her helper. Switched to another Dr.

The Staff at Dr. Fojtik office is very RUDE & Unfriendly!

The staf is VERY unfriendly! I have been trying to get an appointment with Dr. Fojtik but his schedule is very busy and the staff can care less about you or your issue. Don't go through the hassles that I have been experiencing. Save your sanity and go somewhere else.

Outstanding physician

My husband and I were among Dr. Fojtik's first patients when he began his practice in Illinois. We are loyal patients for so many reasons. First and foremost, he truly cares about us as people, listening and spending time with us and asking astute questions. He is easy-going and has accurately diagnosed all of our issues for the past 20+ years. He has referred us to excellent specialists. His current office staff is his best yet. We hope he doesn't retire or relocate anytime soon.
