Dr. Lev and his staff were highly attentive, punctual and kept me at ease. Not only was his assistant calm and comforting, Dr. Lev himself was very mild mannered and generous with his time to understand the issues at hand. His reviews are what brought me here and I was not disappointed.

Im a doctor and this time I became the patient. I chose Dr Elterman based on credentials and reviews on this website. I'm not sure if he was aware that I was a doctor since I never told him on our conversation, but his bedside manners were excellent and he was thorough on his assessment. I would recommend him and definitely visiting again I ever need a consultation.

Dr. Elterman was very kind, warm and informative. He was thorough and very patient while explaining the details pertaining to my visit. I would recommend him however, the desk staff was not too clear on directions regarding samples needed and wait time. Not sure if it was a hectic day at the office with more patients than usual but overall I would recommend him.

I was met warmly by the receptionist who quickly guided me through the paperwork. Within 10 minutes I met with doctor who was patient and was able to break down the clinical jargon and talk to me in a way I understood. Overall, it was a a pleasant, and efficient experience. I would highly recommend.

Not the best experience. First of all, I'm not sure why this practice even requested my insurance info and medical history because they obviously didn't even look at it; someone called me the day before my appointment and asked for my insurance info even though I'd entered it via Zocdoc 3 weeks beforehand. Also, I spent about 15 minutes filling out the medical forms they requested online when I booked the appointment, and then had to fill out all the same forms when I arrived at the office. They also charged me the full out of pocket amount up front because I have a deductible, which is not above board. I tried to say so and was met with blank stares. I waited 38 minutes to be taken to an exam room, where I waited 10 more minutes to be seen by the doctor. He was fine, nothing more, nothing less. He balked at how much water I drink (? I really don't drink THAT much, plus I thought I was supposed to?) and didn't explain a couple of key things that I wish he would have (I had to ask the nurse after he left). I don't think I will go back.

Dr. Elterman is friendly, knowledgable, and compassionate. I went in for a consultation at Rush and then a surgery in the Skokie office the following week. Him and his team were very professional and made me feel as comfortable as they could during a stressful and nerve-wracking surgery. I would highly recommend him

I did not feel any sort of doctor-patient relationship with this doctor. I was scared and needed things to be explained to me and what my options were. He told me that I only had one option and did nothing to comfort a clearly anxious patient. He is knowledgable but not a caring doctor. The office does not know what is going on and will give you incorrect information regarding referrals, medications and appointments. Wait time was nearly two hours. I had to go to the office staff three times over the course of two hours asking where this doctor was. I ended up switching to another Urologist. And it turns out that I had options, not just what this doctor had claimed.

I had been having a very sensitive and complex problem. After some bad past experiences with other doctors, I decided to give Dr. Elterman a try. The wait time was very short. When I got into the exam room I explained my symptoms as I had to the other doctors, pretty much expecting the same puzzled, condescending looks, but when he was done listening, he immediately gave me a possible diagnosis. He explained the diagnosis very thoroughly and explained that he had done a personal study about this very issue. Unlike the other doctors, he actually LISTENED to me and provided me my options for treatment. I was super relieved after the visit. I had been through months of frustration with rude and incompetent doctors who acted like I was an inconvenience. If you are looking for a knowledgeable and genuinely kind doctor, Dr. Elterman is the guy. Seriously, can't thank him enough.

Doctors hardly ever do that. :-) Dr. Elterman made me feel comfortable and explained everything in a way that I could understand. I left feeling great and I look forward to my next appointment. Thanks Dr. Elterman!!
