Fellow Chicago people, could you please recommend any good docs for me. I have tried Dr Atia ( on North towards Halsted ) and Doctor Gluskin ( in Lincoln Park) not very happy with either of them.

thanks a bunch

It would be a bit of a drive for you but Dr. Schwartz at northwest gastro is great. I've been with him 10 yrs and have done well. He is a great doc, does a ton of trials and research, and is also just a nice guy who cares about his patients. I've seen few of the other docs is the practice and they have all been helpful. He is based out of elk grove and arlington heights. I think he is worth the drive.
