Very competent doctor, treated both my kids for very persistent plantar warts, and my son for acne. He explained all very well, discussed treatment options, answered all my questions, explained thoroughly. Going back next month for status,but I feel he addressed all very aggressively, which is what we needed with both their conditions.

I had a lovely time with Dr. Gendleman and he even called a few days later to follow up with me. I would recommend him as a doctor but I can't recommend the office itself. I received a bill 2 monthslater from the laboratory they used which indicated that they weren't covered on my insurance. When I called the office to ask why they used a lab that wasn't on my insurance (and whether they would be willing to call the lab and negotiate the bill down, which is often done in cases like this), they told me that I should talk to their billing person and that she'd call me back. A month later, still no return call. So I called again and was told "it's not our job to know what your insurance covers, we only use that lab, and if you want us to call the lab to negotiate, then I can leave a note for our billing person but I know she won't call them." Ugh. If your lab doesn't work with the same insurance providers that your office uses, you should inform your patients about that ahead of time. And "I can leave a note but it won't do anything" is not an effective way to address that.

The Dr was a bit rude, he did not want to listen to what I was saying, he proposed that I come back in a week (not sure why, when I was having an issue for few months!-- which is thereason of my visit) He ended up giving me a very small pomade which did not solve my issue.

I felt rushed and he was slightly rude, like he was just trying to get to the next patient. Spent most of his time writing notes and didn't really bother listening to me and my concerns about the skin. Didn't reallyexplain what certain medications would do or offer any other viable treatment options.

He was very rude to me and to his assistant and belittled me when I said that I did not want to spend too much money on acne treatments. I could also hear him speak with another patient and he also seemed rude to that patient as well.

He was not polite or informative. When asked a question, his responses were very rushed and annoyed. He couldn't determine what my issue was, chose to give me samples of psoriasis ointment, and had me on my way. The ointment didn'thelp, in case you were wondering. Also, no one in the office informed me of this when I was making an appointment, but you need to pay for parking at his Evanston location. Overall, I would not recommend.

I was more impressed with his assistant. But, overall the Doc addressed my concern and did give me a prescription for treatment. He was friendly and easy going. I just wanted more time with him to go over all of mysymptoms. I feel like he latched on to the first thing I said and diagnosed right away without the full story. He was probably in a rush, which is understandable I suppose. He also rolled his eyes when I spoke to him about my own research on my symptoms. Messing with nature can be scary for some folks, shouldn't look down on us if we seek natural treatment alternatives.

I saw Dr. Gendleman about what I thought was a wart (it was). He thoroughly explained how he would treat it, and told me what to expect through the healing process. He treated it quickly and efficiently and made sure Iwasn't in pain and all my questions were answered before I left. It was a very quick visit, but very thorough. I would definitely see him again.
