Dr. Alm says...

My philosophy is very simple, it's golden rule medicine, "I try to treat all patients as I would want to be treated myself"

I try to be caring, comprehensive and informative.  I always try to explain options as to care available, and then select treatment the treatment that suits that individual patients needs best.  I take time with each patient, I see no more than 2 or 3 patients per hour.

I currently serve as the Chief of the Department of Surgery at Advocate Sherman Hospital, 7/1/2014-7/1/2016
