My daughter saw a doctor from this practice in Naperville and it was a horrible experience. She was having issues again so we decided to give this location a shot. It was sort of difficult to get in but when we did it was a great experience. We spent 9 minutes with the doctor. We got her treatment and some hints to avoid needing to many more painful rounds and we were done.
