Verified Patient Reviews
Love this guy. He listens. He didn't dismiss my concerns. He gave me a referral to an endocrinologist which is more than I could get out of my PCP for the past six months. 100% would recommend him to anyone.
Dr. Bussell was very patient, kind, and easy-going.
Dr Bussell was so great with my daughter. He is funny and explains things very well.
Greg was very confident in his decisions for my treatment in the office and was also very clear on his plan to address my particular concern in the longer term.
Dr Bussell was professional, thorough and informative. I would recommend him to others.
Dr Bussell is amazing. My daughter is afraid of doctors but she absolutely adores him. She lights up as soon as he walks in the room. He is wonderful with kids. He spends time explain to her on her level so she understands what is going to happen and then explains things to me as her parent on obviously an adult level. I couldn't be more pleased having chose him to remove my daughter's tonsils, adenoids and place ear tubes. By far an amazing doctor!!
Professional, knowledgeable, friendly, caring!
Dr Bussell is very caring, he listens well and his personality is always upbeat.
He was wonderful, positive, and kind.
Outstanding experience First rate Dr first rate staff
Dr. Bussell was great with my son! So happy we found him!
Great bedside manner very friendly and explained everthing in a easy to understand manner!
I paid out of pocket and he was very sympathetic to that and said we can do a follow up over the phone if necessary. My issue is very minor, which is why that would be possible. First specialist I've ever gone to where there was no wait--and I was early!
He was wonderful and very informative!
Dr Bussell was very thorough in giving me the diagnosis and treatment of my problem. He explained everything that my CT scan showed and showed me the pictures from the disk. He was very nice and organized and I would recommend him.
I really liked Dr. Bussell! He was very good with my son and fully explained the procedure he was going to do and what to expect. He wrote him a perception to hopefully clear up his issue. Wants to see him back in two months. I feel somewhat relieved he was able to diagnose my son on the first visit. Hopefully over time his issue goes away. I would recommend Dr. Bussell.
Dr. Bussell was the first doctor my 1 year old daughter didn't cry with. Doctors/nurses barely need to touch her and she completely loses it. I apologized to him as he walked in the room expecting the meltdown, and it never came. He was so kind and child friendly, I highly recommend him. Not only did he make her feel comfortable, but also us, her parents, while making some tough decisions.
Although the message wasn't what I was hoping for he was very sensitive to my needs
Doctor who listens to his patients and does not write prescriptions for the sake of it.
I don't usually do reviews but I HAD TO for Dr. Brussell. I went to see him for a second opinion after a terrible experience with a different ENT. He was SO NICE and friendly. He checked my ear issue, explained everything so clearly including using medical pictures and answered every single one of my questions. He told me what I can expect for prognosis and treatment. I wish I had seen him first. He definitely calmed my anxiety. If you are looking for a good ENT, Dr. Brussell should be on your list.
Took time to listen and spoke to my child directly and let him ask any questions.
Very nice and a genter man n fixed my ear pain*!
Great all the way around
Awesome bedside manner. Very pleasant and easy to talk to!
Very nice guy
The bottom line is the issue I was having was cured immediately! So I'm very pleased!!
Nothing to say except this visit was fantastic! I had avoided seeing an audiologist / specialist for 7 years and I could not be happier with the results from today's visit!
Good Doctor! But I hate waiting more than 10 minutes.
Dr. Busselll listened to my concerns and wasted no time diagnosing and treating my issue. I really appreciate his help today!
Short wait time, professional and quick meeting with the doctor. Great explanation of diagnosis and plan going forward. Great overall experience.
He was great! Very knowledgeable and explained things clearly for us.
I was glad they had Sat appointments since only a few locations had the hearing test equipment and it's 30 minutes away . Appointment for daughter wad professional and fast.
Dr Bussell is very charismatic and positive. He knows what has to be done and does it well He is also a good listener and speaks loud and clear which is important to someone who wears hearing aids.
The reception help was wonderful and patient with me and the Dr. was very thorough, professional and friendly.
I thought he was very thorough. He took time for education. I would not hesitate to return and see Dr Bussell.
Dr. Bussell is very nice. He explains everything, makes you feel comfortable. His staff is pleasant.
Dr. Bussell is an amazing ent. Out of the few ent doctors I have seen in the past, none can compare. He will talk you through anything you have a question about in normal people terms. Kind and friendly I highly recommend him to anyone I know with ear nose and throat issues.
I went to the Dr Bussell for an annoying sinus problem. He quickly diagnosed the situation and made the proper prescriptions. He also explained exactly what to expect from the medication and provided instructions on what to do if his course of action did not pan out. After the second day I was already feeling much improved.
Great. The only Dr I actually like going to. He knows my ears!
I really liked the doctor. Super bedside manner and a very nice guy. I am hoping his diagnosis and suggested treatment will work. Time will tell. I didn't mind the 30 minute wait with the exception of the loud waiting room.
Dr. Bussell is very personable and he listens. I would recommend to my family and friends.
Dr. Bussell was super helpful! It was just a consultation appt, but he did some standard testing which I really liked. I'll definitely be back if the need arises!!
I really enjoyed seeing this ENT! It was my first visit so I was nervous but it's a warming office. My appointment was at 3:15 and I was called back around 3:45 so I did have a wait but it was worth it. He was thorough and listened well. Took this time with me and helped explain a lot about my sinuses. He sent me home feeling much better about my situation and am very happy I chose this doctor.
Dr Bussel is great.
Everyone there was so friendly & easy going
Dr. Gregory Bussell, MD is an amazing and wonderful doctor. However his staff needs more practice on how to treat and greet EVERY person with courtesy and respect without making any preference based on race or ethnicity.
Courteous and easily smiles; provides rationales for interventions and health plan. Quick assessment but thorough.
Quick and painless!
Very nice and professional. He took the time to answer all my questions and concerns. Thank you Dr. Bussell!
Dr. Bussell was wonderful with my 5 year old! He was extremely friendly and very attentive. As we were leaving the office my daughter said, "He was a great Dr.!"
Dr Bussel diagnosed the problem relatively quickly. Hopefully we'll know if the treatment will work within 2 weeks. Dr Bussel thinks there an very hood chance that my hearing will return.
was great very nice people and fast service
Phenomenal and very thorough! A wonderful Dr. with an equally compassionate bedside manner, who consulted, examined, diagnosed and carved out a solid treatment plan in less than an afternoon.
I've always found Dr Bussell to be professional, respectful of my concerns and opinions, friendly, and positive. His comments and recommendations are very helpful. I would certainly highly recommend him to family and friends.
This was not my first visit to Dr. Bussell. I initially met him when I took my 97 year old mother to him. Although she had mild dementia, he talked to her about what he would be doing and he treated her with kindness and respect. I was so impressed, that my husband and I are both seeing him. I can recommend him without any reservations.
Dr. Bussell was friendly and professional. Office staff was very pleasant and helpful. Great experience. Would definitely recommend.
One of the best doctors out there!!!!
They were on time and very efficient. Also, has an imaging center in the office so doctor can review scans during the appointment
Dr. Bussell was just as great as all the previous reviews I read. I was nervous about having my throat scoped but he was fantastic about explaining exactly how it would work and how long it was last. He was very reassuring. His approach made it no big deal at all. He listened to all my questions and he patiently explained everything. I never felt rushed. And, he was a super friendly/nice. I would definitely go back.
I felt that Dr. Bussell was professional, helpful, and considerate. I received exactly the help I needed.
Dr Bussell is an expert in his field but don't let that scare you. He is a great down-to-earth guy who takes time to explain things using terms that you can understand. He is a very good listener.
Dr. Bussell personality and professionalism made my visit very easy and stressfree. He is knowledgeable in his field and gave me the help I needed to get better.
First time seeing an ENT. I was very nervous because I have been very miserable for three months and nothing was working. Dr. Bussell put me at ease and found various reasons to explain my current condition. I have more confidence this time that treatment may help!
I think it was great
Wait time was very short, but there was some, both in the reception and the exam room. Process was smooth and friendly. Dr Bussell has a great manner, both warm and professional. Did a great job of explaining everything and putting me at ease.
Everything went very smoothly -- problems were handled in highly professional manner. More than pleased.
Dr. Bussell patiently listened to me explain all of my issues and interjected appropriately. He is very personable and responsive. I liked that he explained things in detail and in an easy to understand way. He came highly recommended and I certainly would not hesitate to refer anyone to him in the future!
He was great and my time in the office was very quick.
One of the most pleasant doctors visits I have ever had. I was explained everything very clearly. I have only recommended a very short list of people in my 41 3/4 times around the sun. Gregory Bussell is one of them.
He is great. Has a great demeanor, very welcoming, puts you at ease. Very professional and knowledgeable. Would gladly recommend to others.
Great Doctor. He performed my tonsilectomy surgery and did a fantastic job!
Dr bissell was great. Make me feel very confortable and at ease. Very professional. Explained everything in detail in terms I could understand. I would highly recommend dr bussel. The office staff was also very efficient and friendly. She called my pharmacy for my prescription and it was ready for pickup when I arrived there. I was seen by dr bussell at precisely my appointment time. To say the least I was very impressed with this office. Some of my other doctors could learn something on how to run an efficient practice from this office.
Amazing bedside manner. Great guy!
Courteous, respectful, and efficient.
Dr. Bussell, was great.

Another great doctor at this practice. Provided several recommendations regarding my continued treatment and explained each in detail and with great patience.
FANTASTIC. Great to get in and out of a Dr. appointment so quickly. I am usually in and out the door within 30 minutes. With answers and treatment. Dr. Bussell always friendly and professional.
He was kind and decisive. Very knowledgeable and quick!
Dr. Bussell was friendly; very direct, and matter of fact. Mom appreciated Dr. Bussell's receptionist/admin. Receptionist/Admin was very friendly, and very helpful. Very informative.
It's only been one visit, but everything went well and he is very easy to talk to. He seems to genuinely care about his patients.
Dr. Bussell impressed me with his medical knowledge, friendly demeanor, and the emphathetic manner in which he delivered some unpleasant news. It helped make me feel a lot better when I left his office and convinced to place my care in his hands.
Very helpful and friendly office staff. Responded quickly to several fax requests after visit for my employer
He's professional pleasant and gets right to matter at hand! Would definitely recommend him.
I think he's a great doctor and I have recommended him to other people. I'm not thrilled though with him giving me the results of my hearing test out by the receptionist. Also the receptionist when checking me in rattled off all the medications I was on, which I thought was against HIPA laws.
I have follow up appointment with him next week. However I think he had the right expertise in handling or analyzing situations quickly.
My first visit. Dr. Bussell was very personable and thorough. Explanations of condition and options were clear and objective. No results of medical recommendations available yet.
I have been seeing him annually for several years. He,s the best!
He seemed very caring and took his time with me
Excellent beside manner! Very personable and knowledgable highly recommend!
Very quick and listened very well. Nice doc!
Excellent. In and out
Dr. Bussell was one of the most professional physicians I've ever visited! He was really positive and friendly, and was efficient and simple when discussing medical terms and descriptions. I highly recommend him!
It's not my first visit and all visits have been great.Him and his staff are really kind and will be more than happy to recommend him to friends and family in need of his service.
Had a great experience with Dr. Bussell today and would definitely recommend him to family and friends.
He was attentive, professional, unhurried and helped me understand my options superbly. Highly recommended.
First visit. Excellent "bedside" manor. Made me feel very comfortable. Would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Bussell.
This was my first visit with Dr. Bussell. He was very professional, very caring, and very attentive to my needs. He made me feel at ease and I felt comfortable taking to him.
very proffessional and still comfortable to talk with
I was at Old Orchard office which has hearing testing equipment, so all was done at the office right away. The problem was identified. I didn't wait long to be seen.
Dr Bussell was very polite, friendly, and personable. He was very informative and answered all my questions in detail. While the visit was very quick, I did not feel rushed in any way-He made sure all my questions were answered before leaving me to schedule the surgery date with his assistant. Scheduling my tonsilectomy with Dr Bussell was also very easy (one of the reason I switched to Dr Bussell was because the last ENT i visited, had a schedule that was impossible to work with if you had a job). My appt was oct 15th, and he told me we can schedule by the end of october if I wanted. I would highly recommend Dr Bussell!
I got to the office early (traffic not as bad as I feared) and was actually checked in, seen and checked out before my original appointment time. Office staff were friendly and competent. Dr Bussell explained things very clearly and answered all my questions.
Doctor was good and listened to what i said. Wait time was what killed me...
Fantastic!!! One of the best Docs I have ever met. First time visit, new patient. Comprehensive, caring and took time to exam and explain. Highly recommend.
Dr. Bussell is amazing. Extremely positive and professional.
Very personable Great doc
Great bedside manner. Very intelligent and caring doctor. I feel comfortable with any recommendation he would give me.
He was excellent with my 7 year old son and very calm and reassuring. He was fun but professional and answered all of our questions.
Dr. Bussell was jovial and gentle. There was not a lot of lag time and he still allowed time for questions and consultation. Thanks Dr. Bussell
He was amazing! Super nice and made my 4 and 8 year old sons at ease and comfortable. Gave them stickers after and engaged them in conversation the whole time making them laugh. Will definitely recommend him to friends.
My daughter and I both had appointments and we both agreed that he was extremely nice and he made my girls laugh more than once. We would definitely recommend him.
Excellent visit far above what is usually received from other doctors. Took the extra time to make sure the treatment I received was understood and how to control it in the future.
Great bedside manners, great service, very friendly and listened closely to my concerns
It was great,
For a last minute appointment, this experience was excellent. Totally accomplished what I needed in a timely fashion. Outstanding
Dr. Bussell was very friendly, very personable, took me seriously and put me at ease. I would recommend him to others.
Scheduled appointment same day and was seen 5 minutes before my appointment time (normally wait 30+ min after my scheduled appt. time) and was taken care of quickly and satisfactorily! Had to drive 40min to get there but will DEFINITELY be back!
He is my favorite in that practice
It was fine, he is a fine doctor
Efficient. Good mannered. Thumbs up
He is super - I have told many of my friends to use him as their ENT.
i was very pleased with my visit with Dr. Bussell. He was wonderful and I would be happy and confident to refer my friends and family to him.
I had ear wax stuck to my ear drum. He did have to remove it but through it all he was fantastic!
Prompt, friendly and professional. Would definitely go back
He was very good and was so nice to me
He was professional, he LISTENED, was thorough, empathetic, and gave me choices for treatment so that I felt comfortable doing what he would recommend. I would HIGHLY recommend him, and less than 24 hours later, I actually have recommended him--to two different people.
Good personality, great job of explaining everything so I understood. Office handled paperwork efficiently.
Perfect - he diagnosed the problem - proposed a solution and I am on my way. 45 minute Doctor's appointment from walking in the office to paying the bill. Awesome.
Very quick (but not too quick). Excellent bedside manner. Very good explanations.
Dr Bussell explained my condition so that it was easy to understand.he took his time and did not seemed rushed. I would see him again if I ever need to I the future.
moved a little to fast, was not able to describe history of ear and throat problem
He was pleasant and knowledgable
I saw one of Gregory Bussell's associates, Dr. Kennedy. She was fabulous! The office staff was friendly and accomodating. I would highly recommend this practice in Libertyville.
it was good , i was treated very well. Doctor was very humble and nice in behaviour . I was completely satisfied .
Everyone I saw was friendly, pleasant, and professional -- creating a very positive visit!
Very thorough. Very professional. Told me all my options. Highly recommended.
He has helped 4 members of my family and he has shown himself to be both very professional and caring. He helps you fully understand your condition and puts you at ease. I would recomend him to anyone.
Very impressed. I will recommend the Dr to my friends
Reassuring, to the point and helpful
I wish all my doctors were as great as he is. Great bed side manner and perfect diagnosis.
Very clear and communicative. Did not rush out of the room when I had questions. Was helpful with providing prescriptions and explaining the medications clearly.
Dr Bussell is compassionate funny and understanding. Having been to a series of different doctors in an attempt to diagnosis my problem, I found Dr Bussell very pro active in trying to quickly get to the bottom of things.
The doctor was very nice and friendly. He walked me through the procedure that he was doing so I always knew what was going on, which was comforting. I have a feeling that Dr. Bussell is probably good with kids too!

Very professional, personable, warm and reassuring.

The doctor and his staff were GREAT. Very professional, on time and extremely supportive.
Doctor and Staff were both friendly and effeceint. I also liked the location, because I could easily park and there were places to eat or shop when I was finished.
I felt really confident that Dr. Bussell had a good understanding of the issue and possible treatments. Nice guy and I left thinking really positively.
Very straightforward, asked my complaint, checked my ears, then sent me to audiologist, who was very efficient. Then sat and explained thoroughly results of hearing test.
Nice & Experienced Doctor.
One hour for waiting is too much.
Very nice, clearly explained everything, was thorough and a good listener. Would recommend.
Dr. Bussell was helpful and thorough. He explained the performed procedure and purpose for it. He then requested I go for further testing at his other nearby office. They were able to perform this test within the hour of my initial appointment with him. Shortly after the completion of the second test Dr. Bussell contacted me by phone and advised me of the results. Furthermore, he recommended another specialist for followup on a related matter that ENT's typically do not treat patients for.
Very personable, very professional and compassionate, very good listener.
Highly recommend Dr. Bussell. Very knowledgeable, professional and personable.
Dr. Bussell was terrific! He made both me and my daughter (the patient) very comfortable, with an incredibly great bedside manner. He was warm, comforting and honest, had a gentle touch when examining her, always smiled, and was generally concerned with her well-being. He made sure that we were seen for the CT scan immediately, and made himself very reachable so that I could keep him informed and he could answer all of my questions. I would highly recommend Dr. Bussell and will definitely see him again if I or anyone in our family needs to see an ENT.
Highly professional, puts patients at ease straightway and explains things in a lucid manner.
He was very kid friendly.
I have been a patient of Dr. Bussell for 5 years and would highly recommend him! He is extremely professional and knowledgeable. He has performed a couple of surgical procedures on me and each and every time, I have felt very comfortable knowing I was in very caring hands!
Dr. Bussell was extremely friendly and professional. He put our teenage daughter at ease and gave us detailed information on the short procedure she had. I would highly recommend Dr. Bussell.

I am very happy that I could meet a wonderful doctor!
Dr Bussell was terrific,understanding and thorough. Although I know he had another appt 15 minutes later, I did not feel rushed at all. There was no wait at all.

Addressed all my concerns very professionally
The experience was quite pleasant, Dr. Bussell was professional, and explained everything along the way. I would strongly recommend him.
Great staff, very warm and professional doctor.
