I got a septoplasty from Dr. Rachel and he was amazing! He was so helpful throughout the whole process and the procedure was so easy! I’ve had an awesome recovery with manageable pain and swelling. There was a day about a month after surgery that I ran a high fever and after testing negative for COVID, Dr. Rachel had me come in, despite his office being closed for the day. He cares about his patients and is truly great! His receptionist team and nurses are so incredibly helpful and nice.

Dr. Rachel and his staff were nothing short of EXCELLENT. They were all extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. You can definitely tell that Dr. R is an expert at what he does. I was very nervous for surgery but my experience was better than I could’ve imagined from start to finish. A++

The place is quiet and you don’t feel pressured into obtaining a procedure. Dr. Rachel took the time to answer any and all my questions and even gave me a reasonable quote. I signed up and had a the procedure the next day. Everything went flawless. The staff were amazing and I felt like I got the results I wanted.My pain level is between a 1 and a 0.

Been going here for 10+ years. Dr. Rachel discovered a skin cancer issue that was easily resolved before it became a bigger problem when other doctors wanted to wait & watch it. Every single person you come across in his office is amazing. It is a rare find, a small town feel with care that is second to none. Every team member seems truly happy to be there. Lucky to have found their team!

Recently had liposuction to remove my saddlebags. Day 1 and they were gone! I mean poof gone!!!! I look fabulous already and I can’t wait for 4 weeks until I can wear skirts and dresses again. I’m finally in skinny jeans without being embarrassed! His staff is amazing and he is so gentle and calming. Liposuction is not for the weak or faint hearted but it was well worth it. Dr Rachel answered all my questions and made everything a little more bearable. Definitely recommend.

“Dr John Rachel, is a hidden gem! I cant say enough good things about Dr Rachel, his staff, & my overall experience. I recently had an upper eye lid lift surgery. Even though I’m a week into my healing process, I cant tell you how many people complimented on how good my eyes look. Dr Rachel listens and addresses all your questions and concern. His bedside manner is above and beyond any Physician I have EVER had experience with. Any procedure you may be thinking of having, Dr Rachel by far can meet all your needs and expectation.”

“I am extremely picky about doctors, and he seemed top notch! I noticed right away that he is all about his patients and not his ego, and very present/not hurried in the room. He seemed gentle, caring, and competent! He helped my daughter’s skin problems go away. No wait to get in, either!”

“This review is regarding a functional surgery done by Dr. Rachel. Bev is spot on about Dr. Rachel. Working through much fear and hesitation I went through with the surgery. It went as good as it could possibly go and has improved my quality of life significantly. After the surgery Dr. Rachel and the medical staff have always been there to answer any questions or concerns I had and ease my anxiety. I would recommend this practice as my experience has been great!”

“I’ve been a patient of Dr. Rachel for ten years. I must say that Dr. Rachel has been the best in my experience. He takes his time during exams and provides a detailed explanation on his findings and recommendations concerning a cosmetic procedure. He is very thorough. Dr. Rachel is a very patient individual and he listens to my ideas and concerns. He is not like most doctors who tend to rush your visits. I also value Dr, Rachels opinion.. I would recommend Dr. Rachel to anyone seeking some sort of cosmetic procedure.”

“Dr. Rachel is an excellent physician and surgeon. He does ENT, facial plastics and cosmetic surgery. He performed a facelift on my dad, took my daughters tonsils out, fixed my broken nose and performed my husband’s sinus surgery. He is very kind, gentle, and has a ton of patience. I have trusted him with every person in my life who is important to me and he has done an excellent job with all of us. You will not be disappointed.”

I had a lower blepharoplasty surgery with Dr. Rachel. He did a remarkable job I was so glad and pleased that I choose this doctor. I was highly satisfied by his staff because they guided me within the pre-op and post-op care. I strictly advise this doctor to whoever desires to look younger and better. I also suffered with a lipoma on my forehead for over 13 years. I searched for the proper surgeon who could do this without leaving any scar he did this surgery going through the scalp phenomenally and cautiously.

Once you have a consultation with Dr. Rachel you’ll understand why he has such excellent reviews. Just by visiting his website you can see what a talented surgeon he is. Dr. Rachel spends a great deal of time understanding your needs and desired outcome. If you are looking for Botox , he is one of the best. I have had little to no bruising and always attain the results I am hoping for. I have been a patient for over 10 years and have had several procedures at his office. He and his staff are wonderful. I’m so pleased with my beautiful results and would highly recommend Dr. Rachel.

My experience with Dr. Rachel was great, beginning with the reception all the way to treatment. Dr. Rachel effectively took care of the issue that I came in to see him about and also provided consultation on other areas that I was interested in. He’s very friendly, thoughtful, and informative. I will definitely go back to see him.

“I highly recommend Dr. Rachel for any type of ENT issues. I experienced a sinus headache and dizziness for about 10 days prior to seeing Dr. Rachel. I thought it would be a quick visit for some antibiotics but after he examined me I had a procedure that cleared me up immediately, my sinus headache and dizziness were gone and I was able to return to work that day. His assistants Deb and Alicia were very professional and caring. Rose at the front desk was very nice and accommodating.”

Cheryl G. in Orland Park, IL | Feb 15, 2016
“My daughter just had surgery done with Dr. Rachel. During our initial consultation he spent at least 30 mins with us and answered every questions. I cannot say enough about how wonderful he was and how supportive his staff was. Dr. Rachel was precise, very caring (he called personally the night after the surgery to check on her and gave us his personal cell phone number). He truly cares about his patients and has a friendly and comforting bedside manner. We were in great hands.”
