Dr. Siegel is kind, thorough, and friendly. Most unusually, everyone in the office is also kind and friendly, and the office itself is a trip. Hardly what one expects from such a highly regarded professional Wonderful.

Please be careful before you visit this office. They charge so much without telling you what the total cost will be. I've one of the best insurance and I've visited the doctor twice for a sinus problem and received a huge bill from them.

Time in 1140 for my 1145 appt. I walked out at 1330! wait time is awful! On the other side, exam room is full of dirt and dust. So super dirty and nasty. I took some pix but not able topost it here. I swear, public restroom is cleaner. I would never recommend this person.

I appreciated the fact that Dr. Siegel took the time to answer questions, understand what was going on, and figure out a plan that was best for me. I didn't feel like just another patient which is so welcoming today.

Dr. Siegel performed life-changing surgery for me 15 years ago. I was pleased to find his same thoughtful, thorough approach to a minor, but persistent, problem now. I am grateful to have the benefit of his expertise.

Quirky original. Clearly knows his stuff. But making patients wait for over an hour to be seen first thing in the morning seems needless. Just schedule accordingly.

He was lovely, but the entire experience took over 2 hours, and an hour before I was even taken back or addressed. Unacceptable on a lunch hour appt.

Dr Siegel has been my ENT doctor for the past several years, and he also took care of my elderly Mother during her latter years. He went out of his way to be helpful and supportive, and he and his staffhave always been friendly. He has always done a good job with the technical aspects of treatment and provides ample time during visits. I've noticed some comments on other boards about "lateness" and have to admit that while he is occasionally running behind, that is because he provides the time each individual patient needs and does not rush people through their appts. This is in contrast to many of the major medical centers in Chicago where the bulk of the medical visits are done by nurses, physicians assistants, or residents, then the actual doctor only sees you for maybe 10" Dr Siegel always provides plenty of time and answers questions and concerns in a respectful manner. Also, when my best friend moved to Chicago and had no doctor and no health insurance, she was turned away by some nurse at the Hospital Where Patients Come First, so she then went to Dr Siegel's office, and he squeezed her in even though he had never seen her before. I would recommend Dr Siegel highly for both routine and complex ENT issues.

PA Meghan was fantastic. Completed exam and hearing test with great explanation of the process and what the results were. Doctor came into the examination room shortly after the PA was finished. Dr Siegel was able to explain my options andhis recommendations with a little small talk, but never wasting my time.

I am always impressed with Dr Siegel and his staff. They know exactly what is going on with you and treat you quickly and efficiently. The only drawback is the wait time but that is only because he takes his timewith you and every patient. I learned to bring a book.

This ENT office was like entering a physic room or an episode of the TWILIGHT ZONE.. Weird odd none doctor furniture in a tiny space, n to top it off there was so many different clocks all over the place, nI mean every where u turn freaking clocks. Imagine all these clocks making noises at the same time. CRAZY!! The exam room, the entire clinic, equipments n supplies appeared old, dusty n dirty, unsanitary. Dr Siegal looked like an old hippie from the 60's who did not take the time to really examine me. In n out.. It was really a gross place. I wanted to leave the minute I got there but for some reason I stayed. I have never seen a doctors office like this. I'm not going back there again.

I thought Dr. Siegel was friendly and very thorough with his examination. the only downside to this appointment was the wait time. I waited an hour and 30 mins before finally being examined. I understand that situations come up and itcan delay other appointments but i wish that his staff would have conveyed that to me so that I could have rescheduled my appointment. It caused me to miss 3.5 hours of work and now have to use a half day PTO.

I gave him 4 stars because the waiting time for a booked appointment was more than one and half hour which is disappointed to me and there was no apolopize at all otherwise I was comfortable with his approch and physicalexam but he also did not ask me at the end if I have any question which makes me more happy to approve my point that to not let any doctor lead the visit but you are the one who pay for the it so do not let your feeling to save the doctor's time from expel your concerns about the issues that you have to be reassured.

Medically, I got everything I needed and I'm very pleased. From my point of view, the only significant problem I had was the wait, nearly 1 1/2 hours after my appointment time when Dr. Siegel walked into the exam room. BothDr. Siegel and the staff person apologized for the wait, but no explanation was given. This is an interesting, unconventional office and waiting area, loaded with a collection of old clocks, stained glass items and other antiques. It's quite an adventure to be in the waiting area at noon when all the clocks go off at once! If you are looking for a chatty, or warm and fuzzy, doctor, this is not the guy. He's professional, not social, or at least that was my experience.
