I believe that Dr. Damm has been getting away with inappropriate behavior for a very long time. I took my teenage daughter to him when he was practicing in Fox Lake and I was later shocked to learn that he had fondled her. This man is a predator and needs to be held accountable for his horrific actions. He should never be allowed to practice again any where!

Dr. Damm is a whack job. I went to him for a broken toe & next thing I know he's pulling on a latex glove & putting ointment on his finger. I was sixteen @ the time & he said I needed a prostate exam. He's in well with high ranking politicians... he uses his prestige & PhD as a medium to act as a sexual predator. I wouldn't trust him to diagnose a rock without "getting a feel" on it. I've heard plenty of other encounters with him & not only from this forum either.

I thought Dr. Dam was a very smart doctor. I had a werid skin rash and Dr. Dam fixed it. He did not give me a rectal exam. I can never say never but I have a feeling this is just unfounded. You can hear though the walls at his practice. This women may want $$.

All of you people who are writing this negative stuff about him are nuts. Everyone wants to be the victim these days and at the expense of ruining others' reputations. If it were you or any one of your family members being accused of something this sick, you would be furious! Stop, think about how what BS your'e about to write, think about what you actually KNOW about this guy, then make your comments. it's too easy to be a jerk these days and jump on the bandwagon of blaming people for stuff that doesnt happen. You should all be ashamed of yourselves.

I have been going to Doctor Dam for over 30 years and never ever has anything like this happened to me. He is a great guy and caring doctor unlike some others out there. So many people see dollar signs and do what they can to get it. I mean the Economy is bad but bad enough to lie cheat and steal and to also ruin a good mans rep? People now a days it makes me say wow..........sad

I have known him for over 40 years; he is an honest and fair man. A hypocrite needs to first look at their own selves and then they will see clearly the other.

I found him VERY odd AND HE HAD THE WORST bad breath I have ever had the misfortune of being near.
I thought it creepy he had photos of children my age and then learned he had wife our age. Sorry I don't look as badge of honor as most men do, it shows lack of character to me

I met him once. He was creepy and did have bad breath big time.
I don't know about the rest.
But he was just creepy enough to make me feel uncomfortable.
I would not want him as a doctor.

Dr Dam is a dermatologist and an internist. I have been seeing him now for about 3 years. Recently, I referred my boss to him. My father now sees him as well. My husband will be seeing him as well. Dr Dam does in fact like to be thorough so if you are a male and you have not had a rectal in a while you can bet your a$$, literally, you are going to get a rectal. he did some pre op for me a while back and my glucose was low, due to a 3 day fasting for a specific gastro test. Dr Dam called my husband at work because I didnt answer his call (I was at work) He called because he was worried I was laying comatose at home since my glucose was really really low. On my first visit to him, I watched him call the pharmacy and tell them he would be sending a check to pay for a patients prescription. The woman was in tears she was so grateful. Not to toot my own horn but I am a very attractive woman with LARGE breasts and not once have I ever felt "fondled" by Dr Dam. Breast exam, yes, but not fondled. Dr Dam is not barred from practicing in McHenry, the person above who said that is an idiot. He sees patients at Centegra Hospital in McHenry. I have been a frequent visitor to docs since I was a child due to a condition we dont need to go into but I am now 38 yrs old, and Dr Dam is one of the nicest docs I have found. And most importantly one of the most thorough.

My daughter went to him and she never had a problem. I really believe that it is wrong to convict someone without a trial of his peers just because one person says so. She probably figured she could get a good chunk by making false accusations. I need a new doctor and I plan on making an appointment to see him. In this country you are innocent until PROVEN guilty.

I have seen Dr. Dam for many years now and I refered my wife to him who is very attractive and she finds him extrememly profesional. He is not all about money he is all about patient health, he ran test other doctors didn't like EKG for my healthy heart, blood test and yes rectal exam but im positive it was for my benifit and not his!!! He has even called my on Sundays at home when a prescription was declined by Insurance and called me when he unlike other doctors looked over my charts and noticed I gained 20 pounds. He is very thorough or in other words very good and I wouldn't want another doctor. This Doctor will look over your charts in detail and will run test you should have and you will feel confident he is looking out for your health.
