Dr. Rosenow and team were beyond awesome! I felt listened to and valued as a patient with chronic pain. They did an excellent job working together and assuring me than I was more then welcome to call with questions or use patient portal to ask questions. They genuinely cared about me and helping me receive the optimal pain relief. They throughly answered all my questions. It was definitely worth waiting to get in with Dr. Rosenow and driving to Chicago for this appointment!

This was my first time meeting with Dr. Rosenow and his resident. I was so grateful that both Doctors spent time with me, LISTENED to me and seemed to care. I've been dealing with a health issue for several months and many Doctors have seemed dismissive to me. That was not the case with Dr. Rosenow. I thank both of them for their concern and their recommendations for possible next steps. I'm deeply appreciative of their attention to my case.

Dr. Rosenow was very thorough in giving me information about my medical situation. He really explained everything to the point that I myself could understand what he was explaining to us. I highly recommend him . He is more knowledgable than the other Neurologists and Neurosurgeons I have had contact with.
