Ratings for Dr. Richard L. Noren
Terrible!! Rude and dismissive. He didn't care at all about my concerns or how I felt. He had a godlike complex. He has a bad attitude and in my opinion, he must be an unhappy person to treat others the way he does. I can't believe he's a practicing doctor!
Horrible “doctor” and horrible person!! How on earth a reputable establishment like Illinois Bone and Joint has this sadistic, incompetent torturer in their building and sending their patients to him is beyond insanity!!! I am permanently disabled thanks to “Dr” Richard -Di*k- Noren! I am in excruciating pain every single day, unable to work, unable to function, unable to feel anything because he butchered my neck and I do not have feeling in my hands! I can’t even hold my neck up to support my now also permanently damaged brain! I hope one day he suffers as I have and as the 15 other reviewers on here have!!!!
Do not go to this HACK! He's a jerk, types during whole visit then injects your back incorrectly and tortures you! And as a patient you don't know that what he's doing is wrong and will damage your back worse for life! Then he gave me an epidural injection in my neck WITHOUT an X-ray to guide him so he caused a cerebrospinal fluid leak!!!! Then he refused to see me after, refused me any pain medication and refused my phone calls! By the time I made it to the ER that night it was too late, and I Annie PERMANENTLY DISABLED!!!!! STAY AWAY FROM THIS SMUG, INCOMPETENT JERK!!!
I am writing to vent our dissatisfaction with Doctor Richard Noren and his staff. I was a new patient of Dr. Noren's and had a appointment. He examined me and ordered a MRI and X-ray, plus, pain medication. Unfortunately, the pain medicine did nothing for my pain. I called Doctor Noren's office on Monday and spoke with his assistant Mindy asking to talk to the doctor. She advised me he was out of the office until Wednesday. I explained my painful situation to her and she became aggressive and rude towards me. I told her I just wanted to know from the doctor if I could take more of my medicine or perhaps ibrprofen for my pain. She repeatedly stated the doctor is out of the office till Wednesday. I called back on Tuesday still in pain and AGAIN requested to speak with the doctor or to page him and have him call me. Subsequently, I called my primary doctor who talked to me and advised me on my correct medicine intake.
It took every bit of strength I has not to knock him out. My wife has been suffering for about 10 years with fibromyalgia as well as migraine headaches and a herniated disc in her back! He told her word for word "you do not have pain, it's all in your head" the guy is a total loser an I wouldn't care if he was the Only Doctor left I would not recommend him for anything! He should just retire if he's too afraid to deal with anything but easy cases.
didn't actively or interactively listen; didn't make eye contact, diagnostic tests lasted a matter of seconds; cut me off as i was trying to provide relevant information, shrugged shoulders several times; showed no care, concern or empathy for a painful condition. not recommeded whatsoever.
