    George Katsamakis MD
    I have multiple sclerosis and I was just diagnosed last March.  I was seeing a different neurologist in his practice, who was just a general neurologist and he is a specialist.  He is very easy to talk to and he takes times.  I have issues getting an appointment with him because he is a busy man.

    Singer, Dr. Kathryn
    I do not want to go into too much detail, as reasons for seeking psychiatric care are private in nature. I will say that I was concerned about my mental health, and Dr. Singer listened to what I had to say very carefully, asked pertinent questions, and gave me feedback and her assessment in a very professional but empathic and caring manner. As I stated above, she was not quick to throw medication at my problem. I had already began counseling with a psychotherapist, and since Dr. Singer assessed my symptoms as less than severe, we agreed to give the counseling a few weeks to see if that would help. I have not had the need to return, and am grateful to Dr. Singer for both her scrupulous approach as well as her support and validation.

    Dr. George Katsamakis is with Arlington Heights and Hoffman Estates. He is a MS specialist, which of course is why I go to him. He is thorough. He knows the field. Communication with him is fine, but it is not so easy to get an appointment with him because I had lot of problem the last time leaving a message for him or talking to him. I was happy with him. He told me things that my previous doctor probably could not tell me. There was something unaccounted for in one of my CAT scan and he pointed that out and it disappeared a year later. He is upfront and very honest. I would use his service in the future.

    Sharyl Balkin MD
    I began seeing Dr. Balkin for ADHD. My previous doctor was no longer an option do to insurance changes. Dr. Balkin was friendly, but it later became clear that she enjoyed talking about herself, rather than gathering pertinent information important to an accurate diagnosis and treatment. She basically wrote prescriptions for me, which was fine since my ADHD was being managed well by the last doctor. I would often initiate possible changes in my medicines and she would then offer information and opinion. I made the mistake of sending my adult daughter to her to help with her issues, including depression. I attended several meetings with her and became concerned when the doctor seemed comfortable in just refilling prescriptions, rather than providing a complete assessment, diagnosis and plan for treatment. She took few notes, which forced her to ask repetitive questions each session. I felt she never really understood her condition and thus could be of little help in successfully treating her. She suggested my daughter work with a psychologist in her office, which we did. The problem was the two of them never discussed her diagnosis or treatment. I began to realize that we were wasting time and money, without any real diagnosis or plan for treatment. Dr. Balkin was not very good at returning phone calls, even when there was a problem with a medicine. When my daughter was responding poorly to a new medicine, I talked to her on the phone and her response was to "make an appointment." Unfortunately, this was not possible for 3 weeks since Dr. Balkin does not work full time. I was concerned about the wait time and tried to relate this to her, but she never returned our calls. After several months of frustration, I attempted to change to another psychiatrist within her group. At that time, Dr. Balkin sent us a letter "Terminating her services" due to missed appointments by my daughter, which I was never informed about. Although I understood her concerns about loss revenue, I was very surprised that a psychiatrist would terminate the treatment of 2 patients without any warning or discussion (one with depression concerns). I attempted to contact Dr. Balkin to discuss the situation, but she never returned my calls. I did discover that she was indeed aware of our intentions to switch doctors. Our experience with Sheryl Balkin and Associates was an unfortunate waste of time and money. She never provided an accurate diagnosis and treatment. She was a poor listener and showed little understanding and compassion of my daughter's depression. In addition, the staff was not very helpful or friendly. I would not recommend this office to anyone.

    Goldstein, Dr. Laura G.
    I think she is superb. She has helped me tremendously with medication and referrals. She is known to be very precise on test that she wants done. If another doctor needs info or if I want her to give information to another doctor, she is very prompt in sending it. She and her staff are alway available for questions or request.

    George Katsamakis MD
    My experiences have been fine. He examines me and has been able to fill me in on information about myself I didn't know. He seems competent and I am glad he is a specialist because I need someone who knows what he's doing. He is also very personable. The environment is fine and the staff is friendly, but they aren't good about returning calls.

    Goldstein, Dr. Laura G.
    Dr. Goldstein is VERY knowledgeable. There is no guess-work with her, she will tell you exactly what is going on. She is very thorough and informative. If you ask her a question you get an absolute straight answer.
