My visit was fine in the end and my issues were addressed. However, I had written a message to the Dr. and staff regarding the purpose of my visit and that was not read prior to my visit. Why bother?

Dr. Rees is a highly educated, experienced, and professionally skilled orthopedic. He has always shown attentiveness and a willingness to discuss medical issues and/or answer any questions or concerns you may have. I have never felt "rushed"nor judged, and have always felt respected by him as well as comfortable with him. My surgeries have gone very well, and better than expected. I feel very fortunate to have Dr. Rees as my orthopedic surgeon. Beyond his knowledge & skills, he also has compassion and there is a "truly sincere genuineness" and "evenness" about him. *Best of all, everything i'm already saying about him, has remained consistently true through the years I have needed him and known him. I do appreciate and respect that consistency that i can count on with him! Having been a patient at Loyola for 20 years, I can actually say that Dr. Rees is an exceptional physician and surgeon. I adore him!
