Verified Patient Reviews
Awesome doctor! Having seen many allergists over the years, I have to say Dr Rotskoff is a cut above. Very personable too.
I don't think I have every enjoyed a doctor visit as much as I have with Dr. Rotskoff. He has a great personality and has spent a lot of time helping me figure out my allergies. I feel a million times better since I started seeing him.
Dr. Rotskoff is one of the best doctors I have ever had. He has made a huge difference in my quality of life. Before seeing him I suffered from disabling allergies and sinus problems. I just can't say enough about him.
Dr Rotskoff is the nicest and most professional allergist. He has been treating my allergic asthma for years and I trust him with my life
Dr. Rotskoff was efficient, yet thorough. I felt very comfortable and not rushed. I would highly recommend him to others!
Dr. Rotskoff is SIMPLY the BEST!
So happy to find such a great doctor that is close to my work.
Dr. Rotskoff has been so helpful and thorough! I am so happy I found his practice. He recommended a holistic vitamin supplement for my headaches and I have noticed significant improvement in a couple weeks. He also treated me for bad reflux that was affecting my sleep quality. Feel so much better during the day.
Best doctor ever! Very knowledgable, personable, and helpful! My allergies were making me miserable and he found time to squeeze me into his busy schedule at the last minute. Very patient and thorough. You can tell he really cares about his patients.
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 few days 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!
Dr. Rotskoff was nice and straight to the point. Listened to, and answered all of my questions.
Dr. Rotskoff was wonderful. He takes his time with you and make sure that you are ok.
Dr. Brian Rotskoff was very kind and compassionate and I'm truly glad I visited with him today. Looking forward to following up. Big thank you to him!
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 medical records 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.
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 you need 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.
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 I am 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. A pulmonary 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 walked in not understanding what issue my daughter had with her eyes as far as allergies go. I walked out the same way. Very disappointed. I felt like I wasn't given the information that I would expect from a professional.
The visit was pleasant, effective and fruitful! After first discussion I have a medication and a direction to follow. Attitude of mr Rotskoff - kind and professional.
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, chest pain, 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.
Awesome doctor! Really took his time with me.
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 headaches for 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!!
No complaints. I felt more informed by the end of my first visit with Dr. Brian Rotskoff about my situation and how to treat it then I was in multiple visits else where. I feel he took my condition very seriously and took steps to rule out any other possibilities. Great guy ??
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 to my routine. 7-8 months later, I'm still sick with allergies/sinus infections.
He is the absolutely best Doctor. I have finally gotten my asthma under control.
Very efficient and knowledgable. Great bedside manner. Extremely helpful and informative
Nice Dr. Pleasant. Though
Dr. Rotskoff has gone above and beyond to make sure that my all of my needs and concerns are being addressed. He has worked closely with me to ensure that my treatment is a success and it is very clear upon our interactions that he is very genuine and passionate about helping his patients. The quality of care I receive from him is higher than any other doctor I have ever been to. I would highly recommend him to anybody looking for an allergist.
I have been suffering from post nasal drip for many years. Dr. Rotskoff spent a great deal of time explaining all of the different causes. He put me on a medication to help heal the inflammation in my throat and voice box, and I am already feeing much better! I wish I had found him much sooner. I can't say enough good things about him
Great experience with Dr. Rotskoff. He took his time and really explained what was going on with my allergies. He really me a fresh perspective on my allergies and why I wasn't getting better before. I am confident I have found the right doctor. It wasn't the reason why I went to see him, but I mentioned I couldn't go to my in laws because of their cat. I don't have time for allergy shots. He suggested that I try allergy drops instead. If it works as well as he says it does, I may not have any more excuses to not go to my in laws house.
Dr. Rotskoff has always been there when I needed him. Very empathic and kind. Very knowledgable too.
After many months of treatment- my allergies are almost non-existent. Allergy drops have worked wonders for my pet allergy
Dr. Rotskoff is an outstanding allergist. He has saved me twice in the office when having severe asthma attacks. I can't say enough about his dedication to his patients.
Outstanding visit with Dr. Rotskoff. He spent a lot of time going over my allergy symptoms. Great bedside manner and very thorough. I would recommend him to anyone that really needs someone to help figure out their health problems.
I have suffered from allergies and sinus headaches for years. I have had to go on at least 3 courses of antibiotics each year. A finally reached the point of complete misery. Dr. Rotskoff spent a lot of time explaining the cause of my sinus headaches and why the antibiotics I was taking were doing more harm than good. He gave me a vitamin supplement for the headaches and I am feeling better already. My allergies are starting to feel better too!
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 he did 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.
Dr. Rotskoff continues to be a god-send. He seems to be an expert on acid reflux. I was exhausted during the day and he has been treating me for severe acid reflux that gets up in my throat- for the last couple of months. Apparently you swallow the acid and it keeps you from getting a good night sleep. I didn't even know I had acid reflux but my energy is a 100 times better now!. He really goes the extra mile and tries to figure out what is wrong with you. It has been life-changing for me
Truly one of the best doctors I have ever been to. Just an incredible depth of knowledge. I learned about why I am so tired during the day and how it relates to my snoring and allergies. He thinks he can figure out why I am always wanting to take naps everyday! That would make him a true miracle worker. He spent a lot of time with my questions and couldn't have been any nicer. Great sense of humor was a bonus! I can't even tell you how many doctors I have been to before Dr. Rotskoff!
Dr. RotsKof gave me a new allergy to understand now. Price was great.
Everything was smooth. Dr. Brian is really nice and helpful.
Dr. Rotskoff is very knowledgeable, accurate, friendly. He did an allergy test right away and explained everything to me. Highly recommended.
Excellent visit. This was my first time visiting an allergist and I was not sure what to expect. Dr. Rotskoff was very friendly and patient. He addressed symptoms that I had not even realized could be related to allergies. I would definitely recommend him to a friend!
Had a great experience with Dr. Rotskoff. Highly recommended!
Was in and out in 10 min. Answered every question I had a gave me a couple tips. Great experience!
Dr. Rotskoff is truly exceptional. Great experience.
It is hard to describe how much Dr. Rotskoff has helped me. Can't thank him enough!
I would recommend him to anyone who continues to suffer from allergies. Never thought I would go a day without sinus pressure again.
Dr. Rotskoff continues to be one of the best doctors I have seen before.
Dr. Rotskoff was very personal and made sure that he got to know me and my medical history. He truly cares about his patients and will do what is in their best interest, not what is best for his pocket book. I will continue to see Dr. Rotskoff in the future and I would recommend him to my friends and family.
He conducted a thourough examination (took about an hour) that confirmed what I suspected about my allergies. He recommended a good tx plan. Very personable, genuine and warm. I recommend him unequivocally!
doctor is very patient.
Dr. Rotskoff was very attentive and detailed. Answered all questions and took his time making sure all symptoms were addressed. I highly recommend Dr. Rotskoff!
Quite good - he was frank about the insurance/cost implications of possible treatments, which I appreciated
If you have complicated allergy problems- then Dr. Rotskoff is your man. At my original visit- Dr. Rotskoff explained how my acid reflux may have been affecting my quality of sleep and making my allergies worse. (I would wake up at night choking with a horrible sour taste in my mouth). He started me on a low acid diet and treated me with a stronger antacid medication. Within a few weeks- my energy has gone from nearly debilitating to not needing a nap anymore! Can't thank him enough!!!!
Got in right away and he spent the time to discuss my issues with me. It was great to speak with a doctor who actually seems to care. hopefully my allergy issues resolve!
Great visit with Dr. Rotskoff. I had a million problems. He listened to them all. And gave me a treatment plan. He really tries to look at the whole picture. A friend raved about him and now I know why! Extra points for personality.
What a great experience. I have seen a million doctors it seems. He spent about 45 minutes at least describing all of the different things going on with me. He has an expertise in sinus headaches, chronic cough in addition to allergies. It's only been a few days- but I can tell the difference. Never thought I would go a day without pain in my sinuses again!
Dr rotskoff stays on top of your condition . I have allergic asthma and I know I can reach him anytime for help. I became sick in California once and he was able to get the medication I needed to get control of my breathing. I am so confident of gr rotskoff's abilities
Dr. Rotskoff was absolutely amazing.
Dr. Rotskoff was very easy to talk to and really listened to my concerns. He gave me some samples and prescribed me something to help my sx. He helped me feel comfortable and told me to contact him if I did not get any relief.
Best doctor ever!
He is a really nice doctor and person. Happy and sweet. I just think it was a waste of time for me because he did not find anything wrong and told me I don’t have allergies when my eyes are tearing, I’m sneezing, sometimes the sneeze won’t come out, I’m blowing my nose, my eyes and nose are itching. It’s just crazy that nothing is wrong with me. He asked if I want him to do an allergy test. He shouldn’t ask he should get right to it and test for anything possible. He did give me some eye drops and nose spray samples and said to use them if I get those symptoms again and if it doesn’t work to call him back. He is really nice but I don’t know if I’d go back. I just hate bouncing from doctor to doctor
Didn't listen to my symptoms and felt like he was talking down to me. Said I was allergic to trees, very helpful! Wouldn't go back!
This is the first doctor (after seeing MANY doctors) who diagnosed me correctly! I had daily headaches for years!!!! Other doctors diagnosed and treated me incorrectly. Finally now - no more headaches, thanks to Dr. Rotskoff!!!
Dr. Rotskoff is extremely knowledgable and insightful. He works to find the true source of the problem, unlink other doctors who often make generalized diagnoses. He has a very supportive bedside manner. I highly recommend Dr. Rotskoff.
Dr. Rotskoff was very helpful, spent his time with me, presented me with different options. He is very friendly, easy to talk to and highly recommended!
Quick, easy & simple
Dr. Rotskoff is a wonderful doctor to work with. He is very knowledgeable and insightful. He is easy to speak with and he listens very well. He has a good sense of humor and is very attentive. I'm happy to have found him.
Chose this doctor because of the excellent reviews I read. They were all right he's the best!
I was a first time patient, I was able to print the information needed so that I didn't have to fill it out by hand. There was no wait time. The doctor was very nice and personable and did his best to help me out. Highly recommended.
Efficient and streamlined
Excellent! First time allergy appointment. Patient with my many questions (I'm very thorough), and explained everything to me. Knowledgeable and well rounded doctor with excellent bedside manner. Discussed politics, economics, business, etc. A (rare) enjoyable doctor's visit!
Great bedside manner. Took time to talk with me about my concerns. Dr. Rotskoff even had me call to check in a week later to see how I was doing. Very personable and caring.
Don't know what else to say other than Dr. Rotskoff was great. I was seen immediately, he listened to the problems I had been having with allergies and he ran tests and gave me immediate results. The best testament I can give is that my son has allergy problems and I will be bringing him to Dr. Rostskoff in the future.
He is the best! He is now a star....saw him on WGN : )
Highly recommended. Although a solution to my severe allergies was not found, after only one visit which was not expected, he did do a thorough exam. When I first walked in there were a lot of people in the waiting room and he took me right away, at my appointment time. They were there to get shots he said which means others also like him otherwise he would not have had a full waiting room. He is very friendly and down to earth and willing to take his time to talk to you and try to find the root of the problem. An Allergist really has no cure for allergies but they can provide helpful insight regarding the causes and suggest remedies that might alleviate some of the symptoms.
I started cluster allergy shots (accelerated shot program) with Dr. Rotskoff 2 months ago hoping to have some symptom relief in time for my dreaded allergy season. So far, I have had barely a sneeze! Love the evening and Saturday hours!!
Dr. Rotskoff is a truly great doctor! I had been coughing for 6 years. After my original visit with him, he said he was confident he would be able to treat it. He diagnosed me with a nerve condition affecting my throat and voice box. Within 6 weeks of treatment, my cough was gone. I had had seen many other doctors (allergist, ENT, lung doctor) without any relief. I am in sales so I feel like I finally have my life back!
If you are a complicated patient like me, you will appreciate Dr. Rotskoff's ability to put together the big picture......He really seemed to enjoy the challenge of figuring out my enigmatic medical case....
Dr. Rotskoff is great. I came in for an allergy skin test and he made me feel really comfortable. The only thing I didn't like is that his office seems to be quite "old-school", I didn't see high-tech there. Everything was just pens and papers. I wish I had got a typed up result instead of the rush handwritten one which was really unprofessional and hard to read.
Dr. Rotskoff is always very thorough. I owe him for finding a way to keep my asthma under control. I would never go to any allergist but him.
He really took the time to listen to my issues and did my allergy tests himself. He thoroughly explained the benefits of the treatment he recommended & listened to my concerns about cost and really made the effort to come up with something I could afford. I'm so glad I found him!
I was seen right away upon my arrival. Dr. Rotskoff was very honest, intelligent, and I could tell he looks out for his patients' best interests.
My friend recommended Dr. Rotskoff. I had a great experience with him. He was extremely knowledgable and helpful. I will be going back next for a follow up. I wish all doctor visits were like this!
I had a great experience with Dr. Rotskoff and his staff. He is a brilliant doctor. He was able to help me understand the connection between my allergies and sinus headaches. I didn't realize I was also suffering from migraines.
Dr. Rotskoff really knows his stuff. I have been having bad allergies and fatigue for a long time. He diagnosed my allergies and has put me on a treatment plan. He also thinks sleep apnea may be causing my fatigue- something no one has ever mentioned before. I will be having a sleep study soon and hopefully on to a better nights rest soon.
Dr Rotskoff took me right away. Since going to him for allergy shots I have improved day by day. He is a fantastic Doctor and his staff his just as friendly.
I can't say enough about Dr. Rotskoff and his staff. I have been coughing for a long time and have seen many doctors over the years without help. Dr. Rotskoff was extremely patient, never rushing me. He explained in great detail what was likely causing my cough and is confident that it can be successfully treated. An added bonus is his great sense of humor.
I was a first-time patient at the time of this appointment, and my situation was in some ways unique. I was given careful and thoughtful consideration by the doctor and his staff, and I couldn't have asked for a better result. This is, by far, the best experience I've had with an allergist in Chicago, perhaps ever.
I went to the doc for sinus issues and after several visits nothing helped. The temp solution was to try and use the under the tongue drops which only made it worse for me. The doc was clearly overwhelmed and kept bouncing around from room to room. Went to a different allergist and haven't had any issues since.
Dr. Rotskoff was so patient with me. I've been hopped around from different dermatologists to different allergists, all unable to provide me an explanation. Dr. Rotskoff was comforting in the sense that he is willing to take the time and start from the beginning to help me and my skin/allergy woes. Never felt rushed by him, whereas I have by others. Gave him detailed history in which he noted all of it. Can't speak as far as results, since I had my first appointment with him but I have hope that he will provide answers in the future. I was having a bad skin allergic reaction, his prescription seemed to help right away, clearing it up about 40% by the morning.
He really took his time with my daughter. Super thorough with great explanations.
He was horrible! Was more concerned about me meeting my deductible, than my needs.
Very pleased with Dr. Rotskoff.
My friend suggested that I see Dr. Rotskoff after having seen many other doctors without success. I have been miserable with sinus headaches, allergies, and a horrible cough. He spent almost an hour going over my endless list of problems. He has a very thoughtful and caring approach. He also gets points for his humor and bedside manner. I can't recommend him highly enough.
I highly recommend Dr. Rotskoff. I had a great experience at his office, he is very friendly, caring and seemed genuinely concerned about my well being. He also seems incredibly knowledgable about allergies, headaches.
Totally unimpressed with his interaction with me on a very simple allergy matter. Never had a doctor be so totally unlikable.
Christine had a good experience and is doing a follow up next Friday.
I really thought the Dr was very easy to work with! He was very efficient and very organized but above all just a great person! I will go back and I am sending my Daughter
Rotskoff is a brilliant, professional doctor with a fantastic sense of humor. I highly recommend him. He also has a great office staff!
very good. he spent a lot of time with me and did all the tests himself
He was very attentive to the problems I was having. He was able to find an overarching cause for a lot of the allergic reactions I was having.
Very nice! quite a unique experience actually. I wish more doctors were like doctor Rotskoff.
Very nice doctor, was patient and easy to talk to.
It was great the wait was less than a half an hour and the office was filled with fun stuff for my kids and me! He is funny and nice and is really an expert at what he does. It was a simple visit and in that visit he helped me out immensely.
Down To Earth...Straight Forward...Took My Insurance Co-Pay in mind when suggesting testing... Great Dr...
He was very helpful and knowledgable. Very down to earth type of doctor. It was refreshing.
Aonderful doctor who's knowledgeable, down-to-earth, and easy to talk to. If only all doctors were like him.
Awesome doctor! was very friendly and made me feel comfortable! was running late and still walked right in. test were quick and discussed possibilities and plan to figure out my allergy issues. Thank You!
Dr. Rotskoff and his office were a pleasure. They got me in quickly as I was suffering from headaches which I thought to be sinus/allergy related. I was emailed the new patient forms so that I could complete them before I went in. I was taken on time - no wait. Dr. Rotskoff was very personable and answered all of my questions...which were plentiful. He checked for allergies, diagnosed my headaches as migraines and provided solutions to managing them. I was very happy with the experience.
The office (combined with ZocDoc) was great at sending reminders~ I was able to add to my Google Calendar and also received reminder texts! Dr. Rotskoff was friendly and interested/-ing. Great conversation whilst being stuck with microneedles to test for allergies. :)
Appointment went very well.
I was having a huge amount of trouble upon my move to Chicago last summer - lots of problems with headaches, pain, and allergy issues like itching and lymph node pain. I was constantly taking Ibuprofen and sudafed to even feel slightly close to human. I felt like I was going crazy. Dr. Rotskoff diagnosed me on my first visit with migraines and asthma and got my symptoms under control within a few days. I've been doing a lot better since.
Great bedside manner, asked a ton of questions about my history, lifestyle, etc. to better understand my syptoms beyond what the tests revieled, and is the first allergist to finally diagnose me correctly and get me on an effective treatment plan. Thumbs up!
Excellent and highly recommended. Took his time to talk to both my fiancée and I. Great bedside manner and very personable and knowledgeable.
He is a great Doctor
Very easy visit, and super nice guy. He was up front about how my insurance would affect costs, and we had a nice chat. Overall, the most painless (literally and figuratively) doctor's appointment I have ever had, and I will certainly be back should I find myself in further need of allergy related treatment. :) Thanks, Dr. Rotskoff!
Dr. Rotskoff is great. Very nice guy that explains everything very well. I'm very glad I found him.
Extreamly patient orianted. Very kind. Excellent care. Very pleasent office inviorment.
Dr. Rotskoff was very professional and personable. He listened to everything I said before starting any tests. Good sense of humor too.
Dr. Rotskoff was great and I really respect his philosophy of medicine. I am used to the doctors who rush you in and out but he spent his time and really explained everything to me.
I am very pleased with my experience with Dr. Rotskoff. He took the time and had nothing but compassion for helping find a solution for my symptoms. I am extremely happy with my overall experience and how quickly he was able to find a solution. I am just upset that I waited so long to see him because I had been suffering all these years! I would certainly recommend him to anyone looking for an allergist/immunologist.
The office staff is very friendly and welcoming. The AC was out the day of my appointment, which wasn't a big deal, but the doctor was very apologetic. He was attentive and spent nearly an hour with me discussing my allergies and asthma. I'm used to being rushed out of doctors' offices, so this was a welcomed change!
Dr and his nurse Helen are great. Very personable and non rushed style. Dr addressed all of my concerns.
Dr. Rotskoff was wonderful - I felt like he listened and he has a great bedside manner. I will be going back and highly recommend him!
I like everything about how he did he is excellent doctor interms of allergy
Extremely thorough, patient centered, informative, excellent with adolescents and caring .
