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.
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.

I have been a patient of Dr. George's for many years. I would never consider changing primary care doctors because Dr. George takes the time to listen to me whatever the issues that I have. As a matter of fact, my entire family likes how Dr. George listens and treats us accordingly.
