Emergency Room Physician

He was the on-duty physician when I took my friend to the West Suburban Hospital (Oak Park, IL) emergency room, where he practices exclusively. My friend reported that his "bedside manner" leaves something to be desired, but he was very thorough and insightful about her issues.
