Ratings for Dr. Francis G. Tomasik
I have known Dr.T for over 45 years.I worked for him when he was right ot of school.He was also my doctor for many years.He is kind but stright to the point.He is one the kindest people I have ever had the privelge of knowing.His office had one problem and that is too much family is envolved.Some of his girls are rude.One day I was there as a patient and the girl taking my BP didn't know how to do it.I told him about it and he acted like no big deal.I have not been back .It makes me feel sad because he was so much better than that in the past.Mabe its time to retire.
I was called while in Florida by Dr Tomasiks office and told I had an Std. I was devastated. I made an appointment when I returned to Joliet and he did not have any explanation for this. I went to different Dr to get checked and found out everything was ok. I had been going to Dr Tomasik for over 40 years. I was very disappointed in his attitude when I confronted him with this situation. Would never recommend anyone to go to him. He had no explanation for the phone call. Very disappointed especially since I was patient for this many years.
I went to Dr. T for my second pregnancy and there are a few things that occurred during this time that definitely stand out . First I did gain a lot of weight during my pregnancy something that irked the Dr like no other which is fine I understand, I was a gestational diabetic with my first child so of course my weight gain was cause for concern . What I didn't think was necessary was being tested for gestational diabetes not once, not twice but three times and that's the three hr test I also had one one hr test done as well all of them came back negative. Secondly I was told I tested positive herpes at his office my husband and I were in a state of shock over this and did tons of our own research . We eventually just accepted it and for the next couple years went on believing we both probably had herpes. Well I am pregnant now with my third child and my new dr said my test results for herpes came back negative. Thirdly I don't know if this is the norm but I ended up being induced for 48 hrs straight with no change after laying in a hospital bed for two days he wanted to send me home to try again the following week . I told him no I wanted a c section. Lastly he did a horrible job on my son's circumcision so bad in fact that bow my poor baby almost three years old needs to be recircumcised. Just my opinion but I thinks it's time for dr T to retire.
St. Joseph hospital is a terrible hospital for new born that are premature. They let my daughter just die without extra help and anything. I should have listened to people not to go to dr.Tomasik. but I'm the type to judge for myself. I went to him after my daughter died and he was ok and concerned and gave me the help I needed.untill I was pregnant again (now) and I have hypothyroidism amd a blood clotting disorder and went to e r for bleeding and found out I have placenta previa and I need to see a doctor right away he dropped me like I'm nothing because my insurance changed. He could at least call and ask if I'm ok. I'm extremely high risk and he just said goodbye like I'm nothing. Cried all week here u am 4 months pregnant, bleeding. No doc and scared. He could at least recommend another doctor or at least tell me everything is going to be ok don't worry. Nope. They called me and said sorry you can't come in today your insurance changed find another doc. I was hurt. Just shows he was only into the money not the love of delivery babies. That's ass.
I've always used his nurse assistant and had no issues BUT the staff can be so rude! I've been a patient of his and recently moved. All my other Dr.'s in the area do not charge to transfer over patient files (one office to another). I called and and asked and it doesn't matter if its a request by the patient or the other Dr.'s office they CHARGE even to FAX!!! 1-25 pgs:$20 26-35pgs $35 and up from their.. I can see for the paper but COME ON.. a fax from office to office and the staff is very rude, like I'm putting her out. I'm sorry I went to that office in the first place.. gives the rest of the staff a bad name.
I have been a patient of Dr.Tomasik's since January of 1997 and could not be happier! He helped me and my husband with getting pregnant and now we have beautiful 7 year old twins. Is Dr. Tomasik a stickler about a woman's weight? Yes- but with good reasoning. I have lost and gained over a 100 pounds since having my children and yes I was FAT! Sometimes the truth hurts!! I never took offense because I was the one eating the junk and not exercising. Dr.Tomasik is a wonderful doctor and I love him and his honesty! He is the best in my book!!!
As a loving husband and a friend to your wife or significant other do yourselves a faver and many many painful heartaches remove yourself from the office if your doctor is tomasik or avoid at all cost. He is not what you want your spouses experience to be EVER!!!!
This is my second pregnancy and I will admit after reading the reviews on this website I was a little scared to use this doctor. After going there twice already (ultrasound needed a follow up) I can say that I love everyone who works there. From the friendly front desk lady, to the lady who drew my blood quickly and painlessly, to the angel of the ultrasound tech who reassured and comforted me the entire time- they are all amazing. The nurses are kind and understanding and really help you and answer any questions without the slightest bit of attitude or annoyance. I met dr Tomasik and feel the same about him. To the reviews that complained about him being mean or rude, I didn't feel this at ALL. He was informative and is very experienced and kind. He did my Pap smear more gently than anyone I've ever gone to. I'm looking forward to the rest of my pregnancy at this office- wouldn't change doctors for anything.
