Dr. Walter Alm, DPM
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
