This is one of the best, most accessible and personal doctors I've ever seen- he should be used as a model for all other health care providers

February 11, 2020 8:25 AM

I have already recommended Dr Crotteau to several of my friends. He was incredibly kind, compassionate and caring during my appointment. He walked me through every step of the way of what he was doing and addressed my concerns with empathy. He was fully present in the room with me and didn't make me feel like he had more important patients to be seeing or that I was wasting his time. As long as I'm in Chicago, he will be my go-to doc!

December 3, 2018 6:00 PM

I had a list of questions prepared and was able to chat with Dr. Crotteau about all of my concerns. He took the time to explain things to me and switched my medicine to one that will hopefully work better. Additionally, he was able to ease my mind about something that I was feeling worried about.

March 8, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr. Crotteau was fabulous - he was given my case by chance - he had availability the day I needed follow up for Bell's Palsy and went through all the guidelines to figure out what would be best. I had also developed a very large painful abscess that turned out to be staph & he followed up with me within hours of Radiology appointments. I will be using him as my primary from here on out.

February 28, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr. Crotteau is an amazing provider. Never rushes through. Takes every concern seriously.

February 19, 2018 6:00 PM

At 4 p.m. the day prior to the visit I received a call regarding my child's insurance needing work prior to the visit. This caused rapid calls as I was @ work and wanted it completed prior to office close @ 5 p.m. This did not provide enough time.

February 5, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr. Crotteau continues to be a patient and compassionate provider to my family. He is an active listener and is encouraging and reassuring. We continue coming to him despite changing insurances to a PPO which allows us to go to any adult or pediatric provider. Even when we come in for the walk-in clinic and he is not the provider, if he is there and knows it is one of my family members he checks in on us.

February 5, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr. Crotteau was recommended to us by the nurses at the hospital and over the last 9 years we have been reminded time and time again as to why. He is not only an astute physician, but his is a kind and respectful person who is able to get on the level with both adults and children.
