Dekalb Medical At Hillandale

Misdiagnosis despite $20,000 bill

I visited in June 2011 with a complaint of chest pains. After $10,000 of exams/testing, numerous Drs, inlcuding a cardiologist, I was told I was stressed and given anti-anxiety meds. While frustrated that I wasn't given a reasonable diagnosis, I was pleased with the care given. I returned 2 weeks later with more severe symptoms. Unfortunately, this was the morning of July 4th. Despite a complaint of chest pains and shortness of breath, I was left alone in an ER room behind a closed door. I repeatedly called for a nurse for 45 minutes. It wasn't until I threatened to walk-out that someone finally came. I was disgusted that someone who could barely breathe would be left unattended for so long. I didn't see my floor Dr (they are supposed to see all patients first thing in the morning) until I threatened to leave again (still took 3 hours). At that time I learned that a test I was told would be ordered the previous night was not ordered and I might have to wait until the next day. Once again, I had $10,000 of testing, and was discharged with a diagnosis of acid-reflux. My pain continued to worsen and I finally went to my primary care phsician. She listened to me, touched my chest (not one of the 5-6 Drs at Hillandale, ever touched my chest) and gave me the right diagnosis and medication. I later researched and learned that my condition is common for my age and easily diagnosed. I suffered needless radiation, 2 months of severe pain, missed work and fear. I will never return.

Dr. Lindell saved my life

I have not seen Dr. Fortin, I am a patient of his partner Dr. Lindell. He uses unique devices to treat his patients (no popping or twisting). I went to him in misery. I was unable to stand, sit, sleep or work comfortably. Dr. Lindell will thoroughly explain the science of your condition and what his recommended treatment is. I am now completely pain free and forever indebted to him.

WIFH

5 Stars!!!

I've been a patient of WIFH for about 6 years. I have had laser hair removal on several areas, Botox and laser scar reduction. Every member of their team is top-rated. Dr. Kulkin definitely has taken his time in choosing only the best. The front desk is efficient and knowledgable. I have never had to wait more than 5 minutes for an appointment. I know Dr. Kulkin stays on top of the latest research and his clinicians are well-informed also. Everyone makes you feel very comfortable. Shayna will talk you through your whole procedure and distract you from the discomfort. Most importantly, I am African-american and have never had an adverse reactions to lasering. The prices are also very reasonable. I refer all of my friends.

Dr does not do consults!

I had heard good things about this doctor from a coworker a few years ago. I recently had some skin concerns and called to make an appointment. When I asked if my consultation would be with the Dr, I was told it would be with her medical assistant only. I then asked, if I chose to proceed with any treatment, would I be allowed to consult with the Doctor prior and I was told no, she is very busy and that her assistant works with her all the time and could answer my questions.

Honest and Reliable

I have used Mr. Estrada's services for the last 4 years. He was referred by a friend and I could not be more pleased. I own two properties and he is the only one I will trust to do work on either. His fees are more than fair and he is honest and reliable. He never misses an appointment, will stay until the job is complete and will return to be sure that everything is in excellent condition. He is always good-natured and friendly. His work ethic is commendable. I recommend him highly.
