The office staff and his assistant are incredible and the main reason I am returning to this location. I also do not have many other local options with my current insurance. Dr. Gabriel seems to really be a brand pusher. I’dassume he is receiving compensation for the scripts he writes. He gave me little to no information about what he was prescribing me and seemed annoyed by questions. I had to do all the research myself, which I do not mind, but I find it unprofessional to not give your patients all the information they need. He spent less than 10 minutes talking with me. He did not ask about current products I use or have tried. Before prescribing a high retinol serum he did not tell me to make sure nothing else in my routine included retinol or give me any other warnings that I had to find for myself. I also found it odd that there was no follow up appointment requested to see if the products he prescribed me are working. Dr. Gabriel, please do better on catering to your patients rather than making us feel like a commission check. Your job is to be informative and help those suffering with acne not to blindly prescribe medications.

I’ve been in a few times now, each time I was seen within 2-3 minutes. Professional staff, great doctor, takes my insurance, has access to great facilities and equipment. I mean, it’s the dermatologist, I don’t leave thinking “wow that wasso fun!” but as I sit here thinking of my visits there’s literally nothing within the control of the doctor/staff that I would say needs improvement.

This is a very sorry excuse for a Dr. he double billed me and was beyond rude to us when trying to resolve this. I called multiple times and he hung up on me and called me names that I willnot repeat. I really regret ever going to his office. I strongly advise Do Not go to this place. They are the worst!!!

I was seen immediately. Check In process was great because of the use of technology and no papers. Parking is tough but that was explained when the receptionist called to confirm my appt. What I appreciated most were the options Iwas given when determining the best options for care. He always gave me a option and asked my preference and did not force a recommendation on me. He explained all my options and let me decide.

Physician was amazing- I was in and out. However-the reception crew is clueless and messed everything up with my insurance. They also made multiple calls to me for the same information - and then when I arrived on property - theystill didn’t have anything correct. There are a million dermatologists in Chicago- go to any of them!! AVOID AVOID AVOID AVOID!!!!!!

I really enjoyed my visit here. The facility is really cute, the front desk guy was very polite and helpful with getting me all squared away. I was a little late to the appt, but they all were no less accommodatingthan if I had been on time. Dr. Martinez-Diaz was quick but i didnt feel rushed at all. He was very thorough with making sure I understood all of the info he was giving me (and it was a lot!). I've already scheduled my follow-up appt and can't wait to refer my friends!

Dr. Martinez-Diaz has an excellent bedside manner and is incredibly thorough. His assistants help keep every patient on time, but you don't feel at all like you're being rushed. He basically did all the things that I imagine a great dermatologistwill do - listen to all of my concerns, inspect all the areas I'm worried about (plus a thorough skin inspection based on his expertise) and then go through my skincare routine with me. I am hugely disappointed that I'm moving and won't be able to follow-up with him!
