Patient Care


At the UIC Medical Center, we provide primary care and various levels of specialty care, along with general medical consultations to adult patients. Our clinical focus includes comprehensive general internal medicine with special emphasis on health maintenance, prevention and risk factor modification, including diet modification, exercise, stress reduction and life style alteration.

Outpatient Care Center

The Outpatient Care Center opened in 1999 and is comprised of ten adjoining multidisciplinary centers, which allows our patients to move easily from one test or evaluation to the next. You can register and complete simple lab work in an area near your doctor’s waiting room. If you need x-rays or other scans, your physician will be able to read the images within minutes on any computer screen in the building.

Women’s Primary Care Clinic

Our goal is to provide comprehensive, high quality healthcare to women, with an emphasis on primary and preventive care. We provide a wide range of services, including pap smears, breast exams, and contraception options, and we treat most common medical problems. We also manage chronic diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, elevated cholesterol and others. When necessary, we make referrals to appropriate specialists for more complex services. Because the UIC Medical Center is a teaching center, our Women’s Primary Care Clinic provides an opportunity for tomorrow’s women health care providers to learn under the supervision of exceptional physicians. Our faculty conveys a positive, creative approach to our fellows, residents, students and the other staff caring for our patients.

Preoperative Medical Care Clinic

The Preoperative Medical Care Clinic provides comprehensive medical care for the patient undergoing surgery. Risk stratification, stress testing as needed, and optimization of chronic health problems is addressed by internists experienced in this specialty area. Patients with uncontrolled health problems, who do not have regular primary care, or who have cardiac risks can especially benefit from the services of this clinic.
