While going through a tough time in life and health, I was referred to Dr. George by someone at my church. After a less than compassionate visit with my previous doctor, I visited Dr. George. She spent so much time with me, empathetically listening to all of my story and what I was experiencing. She was there for me physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Finding her was one of the best… See more
My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...
Maintaining health and wellness, rather than treating disease, is my greatest goal. My primary care practice is located in Hoffman Estates, Illinois and focuses on women’s health, integrative health and preventive care, in addition to all aspects of internal medicine. With my additional certification in obesity medicine, I am well equipped to help my patients battle a disease that is a major risk factor for other chronic diseases such diabetes, osteoarthritis, hypertension and coronary artery disease. I will work with you at each step to assist you with making informed decisions toward achieving your health goals – whether it's running your first 5K, improving your nutrition, formulating an exercise program, reducing the use of medications
As one of the few female internists serving the Northwest suburbs of Chicago offering this personalized healthcare approach, similar to concierge medicine, I am offering social visits to my patients when hospitalized at Alexian Brothers Hospital in Elk Grove Village and St. Alexius Hospital in Hoffman Estates. I am also pleased to offer home visits as an added benefit to patients that qualify. I look forward to empowering and partnering with my patients to achieve their health and wellness goals. I love to see their happiness when they realize that they have succeeded.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. George
A couple of years ago, I was in South Carolina visiting my daughter when I had an exacerbation of my asthma/COPD symptoms. I called Dr. George's office and left a message. Several hours later, she tracked down my daughter in South Carolina and called me there so that she could speak with me herself and prescribe needed medication. She does this type of thing all the time because she… See more
We love Dr George and we love the ability to have immediate care as soon as we need it! I feel like she is a girlfriend I can chat with and not feel uncomfortable with anything I say, I have never had a doctor I have been that completely comfortable with. Sometimes it’s a struggle to come up with the money to stay with her, but I’m willing to find it elsewhere just to keep her!
Dr George has seen me for a few years now and she is the best. Very patience, understanding and takes the time to listen and I mean really listen.
We sit and talk the situation out, she will come up with a plan every time. She always gets to the bottom of the problem. I can't imagine going to anyone else. The MDVIP program is the best that I have every been associated with.

When the health assessment form was released on the MDVIP website I took the time to fill it out. This was 2 weeks prior to my wellness exam. unbeknownst to me Dr. Mary George reviews and applies them to the wellness exams. Dr. Mary George's concerns and results led her to a series of questions that ultimately saved my life. I have issues, and Dr. Mary George addressed them all. I am so… See more
I know that being a MDVIP member for my wife and I is not cheap, but I must say that it is money well spent. Dr. Mary George and her staff are not only very professional but also extremely helpful. I highly recommend their services (and I do) to others
Dr. Mary George is one of the most caring and professional physicians I have ever encountered. No issue is too big or too small for Dr. George and going to meet with her at her office is like a visit with a best friend. So grateful that she is my physician!
I am so impressed with Dr. Mary George as my Physician. I have never had this experience before even in MDVIP itself. After being transferred to her as my primary doctor, I felt so much more at ease with my over-all care and felt confident that she was really managing my wellness plans. Because of her persistence and keen eyes looking over my over-all blood tests, she began to take action… See more
Ive been impressed with Dr Georges knowledge as well as her listening skills since my first visit. The time she has spent understanding my health needs and caring for the occasional heath dramas has been impressive. Ive never experienced a health care professional who is willing to be so accessible and approachable. Im blessed to have found such a wonderful physician.
