Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Rakotz "Being a family doctor enables me to care for children and adults of all ages. The advantage of this style of practice is helping individuals and families develop healthy habits in an effort to prevent chronic illnesses, like heart disease and diabetes. In April of 2013 I moved my office to downtown Evanston. I practice full spectrum primary care of infants, children, adolescents, and adults including physical exams for men and women, as well as school, sports, and employment exams."
