Women's Specialty Care is a small single-specialty group who provides the finest in medical care for women of all ages. Each patient is given individual treatment based on her needs and desires. We follow the well-woman guidelines of the American Congress of Obstetrics and Gynecology regarding laboratory testing, mammography and illness prevention. We also accept referrals from our fellow physicians for specialized gynecologic surgery and obstetrical care.
Most testing and minor procedures can be done in our Lake Forest or Grayslake offices. We are on campus with Northwestern Medicine if a patient needs the resources of a larger medical facility.
