Board certification should be one of your top considerations when choosing a doctor. Board certification is an official recognition given to doctors who have met specific requirements set by national medical specialty boards in the United States.
Board certification indicates that a doctor is highly qualified in the medical field in which he or she practices. A board-certified doctor is more likely than a non-board-certified doctor to have the most current skills and knowledge about how to treat your medical condition.

No malpractice history found for Illinois.
Medical malpractice is issued when negligence by a doctor causes injury to a patient. For example, a doctor may improperly diagnose, treat or medicate outside the standard of medical care. The three types of malpractice are: a settlement, an arbitration award, or a judgment.
No sanctions history found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
A sanction, also known as a disciplinary action, is an action taken to punish or restrict a doctor who has demonstrated professional misconduct. Sanctions may be imposed by a state medical board, professional medical licensing organization, or the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
If my doctor has sanction history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a sanction, it does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor-quality doctor. Some sanctions are not related to medical care, and involve a doctor’s finances or administrative activities. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, we recommend that you evaluate the doctor’s sanction information and determine how severe or relevant you think the sanction cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades sanction history go?
Healthgrades reports state and federal sanctions from the previous five years, except when a doctor's license has been revoked or surrendered. Healthgrades displays all actions for doctors whose licenses have been revoked or surrendered.
For which states does Healthgrades collect sanction history?
Healthgrades collects sanction history from all 50 U.S. states. Physicians with a disciplinary action in one state may move to another state where they have a clean record. Since Healthgrades painstakingly compiles disciplinary action information from all 50 states, Healthgrades website will show if a physician has a disciplinary action in more than one state.
No board actions found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
Board actions are non-disciplinary actions imposed upon a doctor based on a complaint investigation. A patient or medical colleague may file a complaint with that state medical board or professional licensing organization, which then investigates the complaint. Board actions are intended to ensure that a doctor is able to perform safe medical and health care tasks.
Types of non-disciplinary actions include an advisory letter, a corrective action agreement, a limitation or restriction on the medical or healthcare tasks a doctor can perform, or a voluntary agreement by the doctor not to practice. A board action can also include a termination of a corrective action agreement or voluntary agreement, which allows the doctor to return to full practice.
If my doctor has a board action, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a board action, it means he or she has had a non-disciplinary action imposed upon him or her. It does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor quality doctor. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, evaluate the doctor’s board action information and determine how severe or relevant you think the cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades non-disciplinary board action history go?
Healthgrades reports non-disciplinary board action history from for the previous five years, except when a doctor's license has been revoked or surrendered. Healthgrades displays all actions for doctors whose licenses have been revoked or surrendered.

Two early personal experiences had significant influence on my desire to become a psychiatrist for adults and children. One was volunteering at Loyola University Hospital on the Pediatrics unit, where I witnessed how giving the right help with the most care at the right time would change lives.The other experience was in being favored as the aunt my nieces and nephews related to most easily. Because I listened without making them feel they were in trouble or being punished, they were able to talk comfortably with me.The belief in giving help with deep caring, and my style of listening, form the soul of my practice today. I see all patients as unique in their own way, and I value the privilege of giving the best care that my private practice in psychiatric medicine can provide.This is why patients love coming to Midwest Wellness Center.Individualized care is as important to me as it is to you because successful treatment depends on understanding your needs and circumstances. I collaborate with you, your therapist, your primary care provider, and your child’s school when necessary, to develop a treatment plan that fits your needs and achieves your goals.Not everyone needs or wants psychiatric medication. I advise what I see would be best – I work to resolve as much as possible without meds. I encourage you to make your own decisions regarding medication, with my input.I have a good working relationship with my patients because I care and I listen. Patients tell me they feel heard. I do spend a lot of time with my patients -- I’m accessible by email, and I do return phone calls.My specific qualifications to provide you with the best possible care include: Rush University Medical Center graduate Medical Director, Inpatient Psychiatry Vice Chair, Department of Psychiatry Director of Medical Education Assistant Clinical Professor, Rosalind Franklin University Fellowship residential and specialized school settings.
At Midwest Wellness Center Associates Ltd. we work with adults, teens, and children as individuals, couples, or families to provide the best psychiatric and psychotherapeutic services in the Western Suburbs.
