Personalized Healthcare… The Way It Should Be
When I began practicing medicine more than 35 years ago, the healthcare environment looked very different than it does today. For private practitioners, making house calls and caring personally for patients at the hospital were routine; treatment was determined by the physician, not insurance companies; and time spent talking to patients was considered a vital component of each office visit. My concierge medicine practice allows me to bring medicine back to the way it used to be.
My concierge medicine practice is smaller than a traditional practice which means I have more time to focus on proactive wellness. Together, we can make a difference in your health by bringing you excellence in care and by working toward your best health—focused on you.

Concierge Medicine Benefits
You will see me on the same day or within 24 hours of your call. Your appointment time is honored and you will be seen promptly, in an unhurried fashion. There is ample opportunity to understand and address your medical needs at each visit. In general, your annual Comprehensive Wellness Evaluation is 60 minutes and all other appointments will be scheduled for 30 minutes to allow enough time to address all of your needs.
During office hours, my staff will answer your calls directly and will assist you with your needs. I encourage my patients to call with any questions or concerns regarding their health. If consultation with me is needed and I am unable to take your call immediately, I will return your call promptly. After office hours or on weekends and holidays, you can reach me directly on my cell phone for urgent issues at any time of the day or night whether you are at home or traveling.
As the physician who personally knows you and your medical history best, I will be the admitting physician and have primary responsibility if you require hospitalization at either Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center or Presence St. Joseph Hospital.
My concierge medicine practice emphasizes prevention and wellness – not just caring for you when you are ill. I recognize for those who truly value their health, our strong collaborative health care relationship is key. You will receive an annual Comprehensive Wellness Evaluation, which will be the cornerstone of your personalized wellness plan created to keep you feeling your best.
If you are ill or otherwise unable to come to the office, I will make house calls on a case-by-case basis at my discretion.
I will be there in the hospital as well as in the office to help you navigate the maze of modern medical care. I will not only serve as your physician, but also as your advocate by working with other medical specialists who may be involved with your care. I offer counsel regarding all of your health needs including advice on end-of-life issues, as needed. I also provide you with personal access to my colleagues, top specialists who practice in Chicago.
As a member of my concierge practice you can expect to receive the high standard of care that I always deliver to my patients. You will receive my compassionate dedication to your individual needs in a truly comprehensive manner.
