I have seen Dr Raab for just over a year now for various skincare needs. After a lifetime of seeking a successful treatment for Acne, Dr Raab was able to prescribe a regime that finally worked for me, and cleared myskin up in just over a month! I have always felt welcomed and comfortable by the staff and have had all of my questions and needs addressed by Dr Raab at each visit. I highly recommend this doctor and will continue to see him in the future.

Great doctor. Staff was friendly. Dr attended to all issues I came in for. Was able to have a procedure done same day in office which was great for me to not have to come back in for another appointment. Alreadyrecommend this doctor to a family member and will see this doctor again for any dermatological needs.

Expect to wait 30-60 minutes before you see the doctor, and you'll only see him for about 5 minutes before he sends you on your way or decides to treat you. Nurse was rude as well and did not sanitize thetreatment area before administering general anesthetic. Would not recommend.

With 38 years+ experience I have no doubt Dr.Raab knows what he is talking about and it may be the answer to my minor complaint. He is very very fast at deciding what diagnosis you have, almost too fast. He willliterally glance at the problem area and that is it, then he's writing you a prescription. I don't know if this means he is really good at diagnosing because he has seen everything a thousand times but just for the patients sake, more than a glance and maybe a longer conversation about the problem would at least make me believe you aren't just glancing and deciding; possibly making a misdiagnosis (which I believe he isn't). Just for a peace of mind, a longer conversation of the problem with the patient and more than a glance would be nice.

He sat down without greeting me, looked at my registration papers, realized I hadn't been there before, then shook my hand. No questions, looked at my head, said he knew what I had, wrote a scrip and sent me on myway, to return in a week. Waited 25 minutes for a 10 minute consult.

Dr. Raab was very friendly, easy to talk to, and made sure that all the questions I had were answered. Only draw back was the wait, but was understandable due to being a new patient. If there weren't any initial processing I woud have been seen right away.

Doctor was very quick and didn't really listen to me but seems to have prescribed the right medication. He managed to sell me an expensive lotion that I probably didn't need. But he was able to get me in quickly andtreat my symptoms, although he could not identify the cause and didn't seem to think it was important.

Dr. Ben Raab is a very good Doctor highly recommended and very informative. We do Botox, every 4 months plus he has treated my husband various times. We have known him for almost 10 years. He cares genuinely for his patients.He is very professional and very matter of fact. We would never go anywhere else, that says a lot because Naperville is full of Doctors of all kinds.

The receptionist was VERY rude. I called in before i came because I was early on schedule to see if I could come earlier, an she had a very poor attitude on the phone. Once I arrived at the office Isaid that I was there for an appt but i called to make sure I was able to come in earlier.. An she had a VERY offensive attitude with me!! Like seriously I felt VERY belittled. Once I sat an was waiting to be seen, I saw a caucasian male enter an stated that he had an appointment she smiled at him an repeated the exact thing she told me but much softer and nicer! I remained to keep a positive attitude with her but she was just a rude person At first I thought maybe she was having a bad day until the white male walked in.. So I was pissed I am a african american an i hate to pull the race card but I just call it like I see it.. On the plus side the nurse that came to get me from the waiting room was really nice! We talked an laughed about somethings she was a great lady! Once the dr came in he seemed a bit intimidating, but maybe i was still on edge from the receptionist. He answered all of my questions he didn't rush me although we weren't talking for much time but I don't have severe acne so it was a mere observation. I must say he knows his stuff. He's really nice but I am usually uncomfortable with male physicians so i would just have to warm up to him. But overall he's a genuine guy! Thumbs up. The check out lady was also kind and talkee with me in a respectful manner. When I had to pick up my prescription i had some trouble but the nurse that came to get me for my appointment, had called me an verified somethings! I automatically knew it was her because she made that much of a good impact!
