Not as close as his Palos office was, but the drive wasn't bad. Since I only need a yearly check in, I'd follow him anywhere. Great Dr, very caring and takes the time to listen, has great sense of humor, and cut my meds down to almost half, unlike the other doctors at his old office. The time it took to drive to Lake Forest, was less than the time I spent in the waiting room to see a doctor.

Dr. Wiet is the best in his field. He is not only a true professional and at the TOP in the cardiology field, but a nice person, very approachable and down to earth. He recently left Palos to practice in Lake Forest at Northwestern and I am happily following him there. He is well worth the trip from the south side, and you can't do better for your healthcare than at Northwestern. I trust my care in his very capable hands, and refer my family members to see him.
