This man preys on people who have limited income, demands payment for procedures that are duplicated, double dips with insurance, and demands only CASH!!! Not to mention he never changed his gloves when he examined me, because hes jumping from patient to patient. I never realized it until I left!!! This man needs to be shut down for sure, I think I will make it my mission now. He tried to swindle me out of 2000.00 plus made me paid for xrays that I signed consent forms from exsisting Doctor 2 weeks prior!! This man has had several malpractice convictions against him, this is it. I saw several unethical procedures taking place. He even sat there and played sympathetic ear to me, because I am on Disability. However, he doesnt realize I also am licensed with state board. Sorry Dr. Your day is done!!! I checked you out, you're not even registered with the state? Are you even legal to practice?? STAY AWAY EVERYONE!!!

Thankyou Chelle. I thought it was my imagination. My kids hated to go there so much they refused. The neighbor kids said the same. My kid & the neighbor had the exact same problem with the same tooth. Hers was covered by insurance ( the same insurance) and i had to pay $200 cash. He is scary. I thought he was ' wired for sound' a few times. The 2 ladies at the front desk were very nice but i always suspected he was ' on something'. I was called back to work & got my old insurance back so, i left. I ran.... Some thing is not right about him. Thankyou.You are right!

I agree with you 100% Chelle. He really messed up my mouth as a whole. That entire office seemed so dirty. I regret so much having stayed there as long as I did. He doesn't know how to fit crowns. Either too big or too small, which ends up giving you a serious infection. He is a mediocre dentist and I would LOVE to place a lovely lawsuit against him! He should have his license taken away, that is if he even has one.

He might not have a license. I had to get a tooth pulled. He wrote the referral. When i got to the oral surgeon, he couldn't do it since Dr. Adlfinger numbered the WRONG tooth to be pulled. There's something funny going on there. I think he moved or was kicked out of Palos. Alsp read on internet he was suspended.

I went to him couple of years ago as a medicaid patient, and he did like 7-8 teeth all at once, I didnt need so many and he massed my tooth that I had to get root canal for over 1,000 because tooth was ruined by him...really bad.

This evil psycho, Adlefinger should never be allowed to practice anywhere, especially with children.
Quite a few years back in his Palos Office, I took my then, four year old to have his teeth checked. He was the closest dentist under my husband's insurance, unfortunately. This freak politely kicked my husband and me out of the room and said we would be a distraction.
It wasn't more than five minutes latter when my husband and I heard a loud scream coming from my four year old. When my husband and I went to see what happened, we were kicked out of the room by the assistant and Adlefinger. The told us that this is normal with young children. My four year old was in shock and could not speak, he just gave me this look as if he was helpless and scared to death. I was a young mom and did not know my rights. I thought the doctor is always right.
When we got home and changed my son into his pajamas, I noticed a huge redish bluish mark onthe inside of my son's thigh. I asked him how this happened. He was terrified. I told him nothing bad was going to happen to him if he told me. He told me the dentist pinched him really hard.
The next day I called the office and tried to make a complaint and the office clerk tried to deny everything and said that he probably got that mark by some other way. I know this weird, evil psycho did this to my son. He must go to jail for many many years. Unfortunately it's too late for my to do anything, but maybe not too late for someone else out there. Scum like Adlefinger should be behind bard and no place else.

These comments are very funny to me! Doc Bob is a well known poker player at the card rooms around Chicago. I must say I'm not sure what to think!
How did he get to Palos

Horrible. My youngest hates to go to the Dentist now after him. He was horrible. Creepy and i think High. He once on the 2nd appt. he yelled at a new girl, such names and she started crying. Right infront of us. It was like a rage for the unknown. He was Mean & High. Kids call him Dr. Creep. Never made the 3rd appt. Run, run fast. There is something wrong with him. He's out of the Palos office now. How did he get there? An office by Juliannes Pizza. He was in the house next door west, In the garage of the House.

I first went to his Villa Park office. The first thing that bothered me was the fact that, while examining my mouth, he checked on his cell phone and then put his hands right back in my mouth without changing his gloves.

The scariest thing is what happened not once, but TWICE in both the Villa Park and Palos locations. I was seated in the exam room and while I was waiting for him, I noticed another patient's BLOOD on the tools that was not cleaned. I told the hygienist and she said "I must have missed a spot," like it was no big deal. I will NEVER go back there, for fear of what diseases I might catch.

Not to mention, he schedules multiple patients at once and I had to wait hours in the waiting room each time to see him.

This man will play poker for 36 hrs straight. He will be at the table playing cards loosing thousands of dollars and remark that he will get it back by over charging one of his patients insurance co and the patient. He is a racist! He will perform surgeries on patients after playing poker for 36 hrs straight. I think he is on drugs and thats how he stays up so long while still practicing medicine. This is very Scary to have him out there. If he cancels on you odds are he is playing poker at the Horseshoe Casino in Hammond Indiana. Make your next appointment on table 9 in the High limit section. The buy in for $20-$40 will be cheaper than what he will charge you.

Yes, he was mean to the ladies that worked there. Yes he had a rage. Yes, i do think he was Higher than a kite. He reminds me of a Hippie. In ' The Body Guard' Movie with Whitney Houston & Kevin Costner. He looks like the creepy that was after her that they arrested ( falsely). I'd be toothless before i would step back into his office. Run. Run fast.

Its true Doc bob spends all his time at the 20-40 table at Horseshoe and preys on the staff for business. I have heard the stories from various employees on how he drains all of their insurance money for little or no work. His license to practice has also not been renewed in the state of Ill.Hes a cheap ass crook who needs to be arrested. On top of that his offices are unsanitary and he is very rude to his own staff. look him up at Horseshoe casino on wed nights for sure @ the 20- 40 game maybe u can get some of your insurance money back since he is such a fish and sucks @ poker. I do not know why he bothers playing.

OMG I remember this guy. I went to seem ten years ago at the house/office on college dr. I was in my early twenties and my dental discount program referred me to him. I thought this man was absolutely nuts. He yelled at his assistant right in front of me, and was a total dick to me and his staff. I obviously never went back to him.

See, I am completely confused by all these posts.. Doc Bob has been nothing but kind and patient with me.. I have received a lot of work from him, and while most of it I did not have insurance, he let me pay in small payments.. I guess everyone has a different experience, but this doesn't sound like my dentist at all! Not only that, but everyone I know that goes to him are comfortable as well.

Dr. Adlfinger has been my Dentist for 35 years. I have so much trust in him that he has treated my wife and children and my siblings and their families. He is without any doubt one of the best Dentists practicing today. I know that he attends many continuing education seminars so keeps up with the most current dentistry trends. He is always very professional and courteous to his clients and his staff. It appears to me that the negative comments about him are being placed on the internet as a smear campaign to hurt his business. I know that he has done many acts of charity and does not brag about it. I am suspicious of many of the posts and I believe they are from companies that then solicit money from the Doctor victims to remove or bury the negative comments. Seeing something posted about someone on the internet doesn't prove anything since anyone can post what they want and not be held accountable for doing so. As for me I will keep going to Dr. Adlfinger as long as he is in business and do not look forward to the day that he retires since I don't want to try to find another Dentist that is of the same high caliber as he is.

Then why was his license suspended? He needs Anger Management and extreme other issues.

I PLAY poker with the doc.... I can guarantee you he steals from his patients insurance and yes he does harass the staff at the casino. His license is suspended as of last OCT... PUBLIC records look it up.... go ahead continue and go see this doctor and hopefully you do not come home with an infection or disease.... sorry toput u out there doc but I'm tired of listening to your stories of how you overcharge patients for little or no.service to fuel your gambling addiction.

Everything is true. I only wished topix had it sooner. My child had Kidcare. It's a program for working parents in Illinois that don't have Health care for the kids. After if figured out what a creep he was, i took them to Loyola Dental. One had to have a root canal which i paid in advance $200 to Dr. Creepy. When i got to Loyola, they claim there was no $200 co-pay and a tooth ( not the right tooth) was already billed and paid but never fixed. Dr. Creepy also suggested wisdom teeth pulled and numbered those teeth wrong too. He was Higher than a kite. And abusive to his Staff. Why he still has a license i will never know.
