My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

For most of us, we are blessed to enter this world with a relatively healthy human body. There are things we cannot change, specifically, genetics. Fortunately, modern medicine has equipped us with many tools to better combat genetics. There are, however, many things we can change to promote living healthier longer.  I have wonderful patients. I am particularly thrilled when my patients embrace prevention as much as I do. After 34 years of practice, I can't say enough about earlier detection of anything. The good news - it is never too late!

My practice focuses on internal medicine for adults. I believe in the great value of caring for family members and generations and am able to gain a much better feel for family history and how it affects each patient. As a female physician, I have a significant number of female patients. I truly enjoy women's healthcare. My male patients also do well albeit with a different subset of issues. I chose to affiliate with MDVIP because I believe our health is our most important asset, and my patients deserve the time to better address their concerns and understand my recommendations. There is also great benefit to being reachable to my patients. I believe it leads to less anxiety about health issues and, often, fewer trips to the ER or urgent care when possible. My MDVIP-affiliated practice offers services, including comprehensive, advanced health screenings and diagnostic tests, that go far beyond those found in concierge medicine practices. I offer the MDVIP Wellness Program Plus, comprised of advanced diagnostic tests, including a heart disease screening developed with Cleveland HeartLab and a brain health screening, that can better detect certain risk factors earlier, along with a personalized medication management program to help make your medications safer and more effective. I see a limited number of patients, allowing more time for urgent problems and same-day visits. I also offer extended time for appointments.

I trained at Loyola University in Maywood, IL - from internship through fellowship in internal medicine. I have been on staff at Rush Oak Park Hospital for 20 years. I find the subspecialties and consultants through Rush to be trusted resources. . I refer to specialists at all of the major university medical centers and some community hospitals in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs. My practice is in River Forest, Illinois, and my patients are from River Forest, Elmwood Park, Oak Park, Melrose Park, River Grove, Westchester, Oak Brook and Hinsdale in addition to Chicago and many other of its suburbs. I would be honored to be your primary care physician.


 It is important, now more than ever, to have a primary care doctor who has the time and resources to care for you personally and proactively. Watch this video to hear more.
