It was a short meeting about 2-3 minutes long. I felt like it went very quick checkup. There was little time spent on consultation. Not a terrible experience just not informative.

Dr. Lopatka could not be bothered with me! There is no chair in the office for the doc, he and his nurse stand over you (giving the impression he's ready to do a runner).......and low and behold......HE DID!! Even though Iread (on his profile) that he deals with warts, ulcerated skin lesions, and debridement, he suddenly had amnesia. I think he really only wants to tend to beauty treatments! Never again! I thought this man was a Dermatologist!

Dr Lopatka, is excellent at what he does. He's not outgoing but he is very competent. The first time I had an appointment I wasn't sure what to think since he is short on words; however, over time I have come to appreciate his professionalism and skill.

Terrible visit. 1) The front desk lady accused me of being late even though it's their fault of NOT sending me a 15-min-early notice. 2) Waited for almost 30 minutes. 3) Described all my conditions to the nurse but when thedoctor came in he still didn't have a clue why I was there. 4) My foot was swollen so badly it barely fits into my shoe and the doctor spent like 2 minutes with me with VERY COLD attitude. Terrible visit!

Hay, Dr. Lopatka asked about my problem, took one look at the lesion and immediately treated the lesion by freezing it. Then he asked if there was anything I wanted him to look at. Yep, and showed him a dark spoton my back which he checked and said all was well, no problem. All this only took 15 minutes and I was in and out and on my way. Thanks, Carrie

He didn't listen to any of my concerns, or look at the mountain of evidence I brought in regarding my condition. He was very dismissive and wouldn't even hear me out, he only seemed interested in patients that are likely tobe repeat customers. I only sought him out to get an independent opinion instead of treatment.

I scheduled with Dr. Lopaka to remove a mole. I thought everything was a great experience from the front desk staff to the dr himself. Fortunately the mole that was removed was small and on my chest area. Unfortunately, it lefta keloid. I don't remember if the dr told me about that possibility, but I'd lean on the side of being sure he did tell me about this possibility because he seemed to be very informative about the stages my skin would go through for the skin tags that I also had removed on my face. I would definitely return to this dr again if I were still living in IL.
