Flu vaccination has been started in the office. I advised all patient’s to get vaccinated for influenza. It is especially important for elderly and patients with chronic health conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, asthma and COPD. Please call our office to schedule vaccination. We will be administering quadrivalent influenza vaccine this year.



Please note, I will no longer be managing patient during hospitalization. Hospitalist will be caring for all my patients patients admitted to the Advocate Condell Medical Center. “Hospitalist” are physician specializing in inpatient care. I understand some patients may not be happy with this change, however, due to increased time commitment of “medical home” in outpatient setting this changes are necessary. Hopefully, this will result in timely inpatient care and allow me to focus on outpatient care. Due to this change, it is very important to make appointment after being discharged from the hospital so I can address any follow-up care needed and update medical records. Thank you for your patience during this transition.
