not impressed...

he hardly offered any good advice on how to expedite my healing process. i would ask him questions and he wouldnt really advocate one direction or another. after a while i felt he wasnt really interested in helping me get better quicker. when taking out my stitches he forgot one that i later had to pull myself. i wouldn't recommend this doc...i think he just wants to get as many people in and out as possible.

Average surgeon, office staff gives poor customer service.

Broken finger, surgeon put pins in- This doctor's surgery skill is average at best. My pins kept falling out, but the real problems began in the follow up care. They have a physical therapist in the office, and their office is not very easy to get to. Especially if you live or work in the chicagoland suburbs. If you are working and trying to go to physical therapy at the same time do not even bother with them. They would rather you just quit your job it is more convenient for them.(unbelievable, huh?) They also try to drag out your therapy sessions for the money. The worst part has to be their receptionist, she is not very nice at all a real "witch." My over all experience was extremely poor and I would not recommend this doctor and especially his staff, to anyone I know.
