The doctor has a very bad bedside manner. She was condescending and fairly rude. I’m going to take my business to another doctor who will treat me with more respect.

The appointment was fine however she wrote me a script to get a test done but said it is going to be hard for me to find a place that will do the test. I called every hospital in IL and no one would take an outside script. She also put me on medication that made me more sick. I called her office FOUR times and the never called me back. I would not recommend her or her office.

Not in suite 201 right now, they are in suite 301. Pretty painless and straight forward. Got the information I needed and was on my way with good recommendations for next steps. Doctor was pretty thorough in her explanation of what she was treating me for and why. I would recommend her to someone else.

I think she is knowledgeable. However, she rattled off everything very fast I was not able to capture it all. and she didn't write down instructions or prescriptions. My pharmacy called today to say my prescription was ready and I don't know what she ordered. this was a first diagnosis for me and I know nothing about it. if she had acted like she was interested, cared and wrote down what she told me it would have helped. In addition, she brought her dog into the patient's room, introduced her arrogantly, and did not even bother to shake hands like most doctors do to new patients. so if you want abrupt, indifferent service with a dog sitting in the room, then by all means go with her.

I only had a few minutes in the same room with Dr. Diamond where she spent half the time half-listening to me and the other half criticizing me because I couldn't remember some specific details about my past six months leading up to my visit. I was uncomfortable with her treatment plan at first because I didn't understand the reason behind the decisions and she got annoyed and defensive, which only added to my discomfort. If it weren't for the bedside manner of one of the nurses, I would likely have left without finishing the visit.

She is a very nice doctor and listens very intently and asks a lot of questions. Maybe other people had issues if the office was very busy, but I came in even a half hour early and was taken care of immediately. All of the staff is very friendly and I felt very comfortable.

I had a great experience. Dr. Diamond was clear in her explanation of what she thinks my condition is and equally clear with how she intends to treat it. I especially appreciated that she wanted my feedback as to whether I was ok with her intended treatment plan. Her assistant was also quite pleasant during the time I spent with her. I would highly recommend Dr. Diamond based on my initial visit. If that should change for any reason going forward, I will update accordingly, but I have no reason to suspect that will be necessary. Thanks Dr. Diamond and staff.

I was not thrilled with my first two visits with Dr. Diamond. She seemed incredibly frustrated with me for not knowing more about my previous diagnoses (or lack thereof) and she was very gruff with her front desk staff, even shouting at one point. By the third visit, she had a much more pleasant bedside manner but I still go the impression that she thought I was wasting her time by being there.

Dr. Diamond was very professional and I felt like she cared about helping me find a solution. She offered OTC solutions to try first before having to resort to perscriptions which I really appreciated. I have been to a few other gastroenterologists and am the most optimistic about my treatment and expectations for results with Dr. Diamond.

Dr. Diamond was just great. I got in to see her right away and her support staff and nurse were so personable and friendly. Really made me feel at ease. She gave me great advice, and I appreciated her approach to start out taking things slow before jumping into potentially unnecessary steps to solve my problem. An added plus is that Thorek waves your co-pay, which is amazing. I'd highly recommend Dr. Diamond.

I'd seen 5 doctors with no answers and while we are still trying to figure things out Dr. Diamond was the first one to really give me a clear answer of what things could be going on and how we were going to work on them. I appreciate her trying to help me out without freaking me out.

She recommended that I see a primary care physician first and called ahead to see if he could see me right away- friendly staff and thorough. Would see her again, when I have a GI related need.

I wish I could forget the experience I had with Dr. Diamond, although it has become a joke whenever I'm talking to someone about my experiences with IBS. I've had issues with my gi tract for as long as I can remember and finally had the funds where I could see a specialist. After explaining to her that I drink 60-80oz of water a day and eat a well balanced, healthy, primarily plant based diet...I was explaining a new concern of my sudden inability to tolerate dairy. I told her that I had a few sips of my sister's milkshake and was running to the bathroom in no time. Her response was "Well, ice cream doesn't sound like part of a healthy, well balanced diet now does it?" All I could think to myself was, "Are you even a doctor?". The implication was either that I lied about my diet, or that no one can eat a wall balanced diet and have an occasional treat. A doctor should understand there's nothing inherently wrong with that, and that you can in fact eat healthfully while still enjoying wrongly labeled "bad foods" such as ice cream, pizza, a burger, etc. She then proceeded to tell me that I don't have any problem and I should just start taking miralax every day until my constipation "clears up". The constipation that I've been dealing with since high school and that I've gone to the hospital for because I will go 15-20 days without a BM. I don't know if it's more sad or more funny, but I would definitely recommend that you steer clear of this office.
