I have been struggling with my allergies and severe fatigue for so long. Dr. Rotskoff has been able to work miracles for me. He has a great sense of humor. I don't often look forward to seeing the doctor but I must say I really enjoy his bedside manner!!

Poked me 72 times without any explanation for what he was testing for. Left the room while my arms swelled up with no warning of what to expect. Came back in, said I was allergic to seasonal allergens and said Ishould see a dermatologist friend of his. Absolutely emotionless, non-genuine interaction. Kinda bizarre, tbh.

I think the dr. was staight forward and honest with me. He did not feel that I had an allergy to food. He indicated that I may have a problem with hystimines in the body and suggested I try taking antIhsiminesto solve the problem. I will give it a try .

I had gone to another allergist and she told me I was allergic to bunch of stuff and that I had to start allergy shots. I wanted a second opinion Dr Rotskoff was great. We did the allergy test and turnsout I am not allergic too those things! Love it!

Essentially, I walked away with the advice, "keep doing what you're doing," (using over the counter medicine) and a suggestion that I may or may not have an auto-immune disease. I didn't learn anything new about my skin reactions, and myskin tests were inconclusive. The doctor did share that there was a monthly allergy shot I could take, but I wasn't interested in that. Dr. Rotskoff seemed friendly and asked plenty of questions, so I would have like to give him a higher review. However, I spent nearly an hour and a half in the office (most of which waiting); everyone working there seemed distracted, and I learned very little. I don't think I'd return.

I scheduled an appointment for an allergy consultation and was not told to not take my anti-histamine medicine for 72 hours prior to my appointment because I booked online. They could obviously tell I was a new patient and should havebeen given this information because the allergy test came back negative. I was told to stop taking my medicine and come back. Complete waste of time. The doctor is very soft spoken and hard to hear. Plus, he was more interested in what I did for a living than diagnosing me. I wouldn't go back

Outstanding doctor!!!! I don't think I have ever actually enjoyed a doctor's visit before. Dr. Rotskoff was compassionate, helpful, and really took his time with me. I am so glad my doctor referred me to him! I have had sinus headachesfor years and had nearly given up hope. I had been too a number of doctors before so I was skeptical that he could actually help me. But he did!! He was very interested in getting to know about all aspects of my health. Thank you Dr. Rotskoff!!

Truly one of the best doctors I have ever been to. He spent a great deal of time going over my history. Great bedside manner. Funny too! But most importantly- I feel so much better under his expert care. If youneed a great allergist- Dr. Rotskoff is the best!!!! His office staff is so friendly as well. He made sure I knew all of the costs of testing up front and made sure to keep the costs as low as possible. I have a high deductible and appreciate his consideration.

Great visit with Dr. Rotskoff! I had a lot of problems going into the visit and he addressed all of them. He took his time to explain what was causing my allergies. I didn't even realize I had asthma until hedid a breathing test and gave me a medication to open up my lungs. I forgot what it was like to breath normally! I have been able to exercise for the first time since I can remember. I had been feeling bad for so long that I guess I got used to being miserable.

Didn't address all my concerns. Told me to continue taking Zyrtec-D, as needed, which I said I didn't want to have to take anymore and that I should be retested for allergies. Also, told me to add a specific vitamin tomy routine. 7-8 months later, I'm still sick with allergies/sinus infections.

I was very surprised to how friendly and down to earth Dr. Rotskoff was. The staff were nice and I've have made the appointment via ZOCDOC and requested an earlier appointment if there any cancellations and they called me a fewdays later and told me that somebody cancelled and if I wanted to change my appointment time, no problem. Please note that the first visit or consultation is longer than regular visit but it was well worth it. It confirmed that I am very allergic about everything. So shots for me -- augh!

Prior to seeing Dr. Rotskoff- I was ready to scratch my eyes out. I had the worst environmental allergies. I had been on allergy shots two other times and had almost no improvement. Dr. Rotskoff went over all of my medicalrecords and was able to figure out what the problem was. I can now go through the allergy season with almost no symptoms at all. It has completely changed my life. He and his office staff were so friendly and easy to work with. His location in the heart of the LOOP was easy to get to. If you need an allergist- Dr. Rotskoff is the one.

Dr. Rotskoff continues to be one of the most compassionate and wonderful doctors I have ever known. I originally saw him for a chronic cough and he promised he wouldn't give up until I was fixed. Well, I can say Iam fixed! He spent so much time going through my history and looking over all of my medical records. I had been to so many other doctors over the years that I was ready to give up. My doctor referred me to him and I am so thankful! His nursing staff was great too. I would highly recommend his practice. Dr. Rotskoff has a great bedside manner as an added plus.

I have to say that Doctor Rotskoff has been a true life saver. He has helped me so much. I must have seen at least six doctors without any answers for my cough and allergies. An ear,nose, and throat doctor. Apulmonary doctor. My primary care doctor. And two other allergists. He was pretty confident he could help me even though I had seen so many other doctors. He spent a lot of time listening to my long history. After the first visit- he tried a couple of things and said it may or may not work. But not to give up if it didn't. So after the third visit- he began treating me for a rare type of cough involving the nerves of the throat. None of the doctors had ever mentioned it. After two weeks of treatment- my cough was 70% better. Now- three months later it is almost completely gone. He has been so thorough in his evaluation and treatment approach. My cough was interfering with my work and social life. I have finally gotten my life back thanks to Dr. Rotskoff!

I mixed up the apt and showed up at 9:15am instead of 4pm. He not only came out to try to figure out the mix up but he greeted me me with a warm smile, upbeat energy and a great attitude.He was very personable right away and was telling me personal stories as he was prepping to examin me. He noticed right away that I could breathe well and tested me and told me I was only using 70% of my lungs. I was in shock. From there he put me on the nebulizer in the office and within a second of being on it I was breathing a lot better than normal. I left there more aware that I have daily asthma that I ignore and need to pay attention to. This doctor is super cool, super nice, super friendly, super quick, super flexible, and super kind!!

I must say how extremely pleased I was with Dr. Brian Rotskoff. I moved to Chicago 4 years ago and for the last year and a half I have been struggling with allergies and this has caused painful sneezing, headaches, chestpain, dizziness, and I have had trouble with my breathing. I had previously consulted with three different MDs in Chicago and I was still struggling with my symptoms. He was very personable and friendly and made me feel so comfortable right away. I had my allergy testing done so quickly and he immediately knew what I was allergic to and how to help me. I can already feel a difference in my breathing and lack of sneezing and headaches since he prescribed me my medication. I found him on Zocdoc and the appointment process was absolutely seamless. If you are looking for a doctor whose medical knowledge is exceptional, and takes the time to listen even while he maintains a very efficient office, then Dr. Rotskoff is someone you should consider visiting. I was beyond impressed with my experience at his office. Dr. Brian Rotskoff and his staff are all I could have hoped for in Chicago.
