WARNING!!!! i used to see Dr. Diakos here. DO NOT go here or anywhere that this "doctor" ever practices. she is beyond neglectful. because of her neglect, i was in a most painful, life threatening situation. also due to her neglect and lack of concern, i ended up in er surgery. i am writing the medical licensing board due to her improper care. all attorneys that i have spoken to agree that this "doctor" was extremely negligent as well. not to mention, her receptionist is as rude (to put it nicely) as it gets! stay away if you need real and quality care. if you go to her, you better hope that you never truly need her help. i highly recommend Northwestern Womens Health Group- i trust the care of all of their doctors. they can be reached at 312.943.0282

even after a horrible, life threatening experience with her, her staff is still calling and harassing me!!!!!! please file a complaint with the illinois department of professional regulations as i am if you too have a problem with this irresponsible poor excuse for an obgyn!

I am a nurse at one of the hospitals in Chicago and I must say I just love Dr. Tam. She explained everything to me and my husband during my first prenatal visit and was throughout my prenatal care. She took her time explaining everything to my husband who is not in the medical field. She was always on time for my appointments but I do have the afternoon appointments and not the first appointment of the day. She was present the entire time I was in labor eventhough I don't think she had to be there but it made me feel better. I pushed for over 2 WHOLE hours and she was there the entire time. Several of my nursing friends said their OB's only appear at the last minute so I guess I got lucky. I would see Dr. Tam again for my next pregnancy and have been recommending her to all my nursing friends at the hospital. The front girls could use some work but I don't care, I'm there to see Dr. Tam anyway.

Pros: Great OB doctor, short waiting time, feel comfortable with physician

Cons: none

I started going here in 2001 when I found out I was preg. I saw Tam, who was really good with me all the time. I then went on to have two more kids with the Diakos sisters, both of which I liked a lot. I never had rescheduling problems and I happen to think the staff is great too. Maybe I got lucky? All 3 times? I dunno. I will find out in a couple of weeks as I am "with child" for the fourth time. I also want to add that this is a great place to go if you have zero complications with your pregnancy. It is really quick. I was always in and out in less that 30 minutes. They are NOT specialists in any way. I wouldnt continue to go here if u had complications. I would recommend Lakeshore Womens Health to anyone. I hope my review helps even though it is the only positive one. (sorry for those of you that had bad experiences).

Pros: Parking lot, Quick service, Amazing doctors

Cons: They like to shuffle you at about 20 weeks. They put you on rotaion with the entire staff. I didnt want to see any onther Dr. at the time. Just the one I had picked to car for me through my pregnancy.

I was new to town and I went to this practice for my 3rd pregnancy and it was uneventful. Most of the visits were with one of the Diakos sisters. I stayed with the practice for my 4th pregnancy ( convenient, I was already an established patient) and it was the a terrible experience. I kept getting rescheduled by the front desk with Dr. Tam. I would show up to an appointment and be told that I need to reschedule. Dr. Tam was consistently 45 min - 1 hour late for all of my appts. which were generally her first of the day. She would arrive with a coffee in hand and no apology. I left 2 appts. after waiting 45 min and being told that the office staff hadn't heard from her. My husband called while I was in labor and she had no idea who I was although I had just seen her the day before. She was rude to him on the phone and then never made it to the delivery. We arrived at the hospital and they said that they were calling her repeatedly. She arrived after the baby was delivered by a resident and some nurses. I called the practice for my post part um visit and explained that I was uncomfortable to see Dr . Tam due to above circumstances and was told that it is the policy that I have to see her because she was scheduled to do the delivery ( no rationale). The best part is that my insurance received a bill from the hospital for her services. The worst quality of care and customer service I have ever experienced. Spend the time investigating your physician. You absolutely don't need to settle for this type of treatment.

Pros: parking is validated

Cons: inconsistent, rescheduling issues, lateness

For anyone, going to the gyno can be stressful. Dr. Diakos has quite possibly the worst staff ever. Extremely rude, condescending, and inconsiderate.

The doctor really rushed through my exam, but was somewhat decent. However, I would avoid this place entirely because there are better doctors, with better offices, in this city.

Pros: not really any

Cons: the receptionist, the office waiting room, the imcompetent nurses

My wife went there for the first time after getting pregnent, they made two mistakes on that day.

first of all, something wrong with the perscription, the pills my wife got are totally different from what the doctor told her. Yet we need to verify this with the doctor.

another thing is like this, my wife told me on msn:

u know what, yesterday, i was there for my app, and then i told one of them i was there, and later, 2 women came in, and the other girl(the one sitting beside the girl that i talked with) call them in one by one

and i feel l strange, cuz i was the one who came in first

and then 15 mins later, that girl came out and said :" o, sorry, i dun know u r here, u can come in now."

Dr. Barb Diakos is an amazing doctor. Always made me feel comfortable and always straight forward. However, the girls in the office seem more then incompetent. THis is the second time this week they called to change my appointment, and today just an hour after i made it. I also called for information on the new shot that is a vaccine for hpv/cervical cancer. Supposenly this girl was calling me back to let me know if they had saturday hours. After she already stated that they do offer the shot, she called back and said "no." hmmm... no what? no you don't have office hours on saturday. She said "No, no we don't offer the shot. I suggest you call your pediatrician." Im thinking pediatrician?? I'm 22 years old. and I have no kids. Why would I call a pediatrician. I told her this and she replied with, "Well, i don't know. We don't offer the shot." So I just figured whatever, your an idiot, I'll talk to the doctor when I get in for my appointment. Which, later on they called to cancel. So. I suggest you see the doctor, she really is amazing, but don't bother the girls at the desk. They are just ridiculously unhelpful, and will leave you hopelessly confused and annoyed.

Pros: Parking lot across the street
