    Why Does Experience Matter?

    Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

    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
