.

We were referred to Dr. Kaskel through a physician from a top hospital on the North Shore of Chicago. We brought ourselves and our two older boys with us. We trusted the physician who recommended him to us that he would be a competent, professional, and well-educated physician; we were confident we would be in good hands...WRONG. Do not let the beautiful office with the North Shore address fool you ( we are from the north Shore). The staff was horrendous...that speaks VOLUMES about the physician himself. They were lazy, bothered, incompetent, and just plain rude. We gave them several times to prove themselves otherwise. They simply would NOT return calls, alert a nurse for us when we needed it, and after finally finding a nurse to speak with who would then promise to call us right back, DID NOT. Anytime we needed help, we had to call the OFFICE MANAGER. They couldn't find files for us or even get the spelling of our last name correct- we do NOT have a difficult name. This physician NEVER, EVER returned a call, but instead, handed that off to a nurse, who would then start the whole 3 Stooges process all over again.
We had a private, SERIOUS, MEDICAL issue in the family that needed prompt attention ( an ER visit was not needed...yet) and he told us to find a mental health physician instead as that was out of the "realm of his expertise". We were told by the hospital that the FIRST step was getting tests done and then sitting down with him and having him explain step-by-step what the results meant and THEN the next step would be to find an appropriate physician. THIS NEVER HAPPENED. We waited almost a WEEK ( after being told that the results would be in within 24 hours) to get the test results back and after calling the lab OURSELVES, they informed us that they had been in for 4 days already. We had to call the office to ask if someone could please read the test results to us as we are LAYPEOPLE, and the nurse, again, NEVER Kaskel himself, said that all she could do was send us the results via the patient portal, WHICH by the way we found out is the ONLY WAY to EVER get a response from him and even then he will pass it off to someone else. It was a blurry COPY of the results. WE had to email them via the patient portal and ask them to release a copy to us via the mail....we waited a full week for that. We live in the next town over.
PLEASE do NOT waste your precious time and trust in a physician who has the personality of a cardboard box, is cold and rude, and despite the degree's on his wall, does NOT have your best interest at heart. RUN from him.
Our insurance paid 100% coverage with him so this was NOT a financial issue.
