My kids have been going to Advocate Medical Group (@ Lutheran General in Park Ridge) for 2 years now and I was referred to them by a friend of mine whose daughter goes there as well. I like it much better than the practice I used to go to (in Hoffman Estates). The nurses in Park Ridge are nice and friendly and they split their waiting area in half with a large built in fish tank. One side is for sick children and the other side for "well" children. Four days a week from 8am-8:45am they have "sick days" where you can bring in your kid without an appointment and they will see them. My kids' primary pediatrician is Lundblad, but we have seen Mehta and Schreier as well. Most of the docs seem pretty nice and knowledgable which was really helpful for me as my "little" one was sick alot for a year an a half and they referred me to a great ENT doc (Lygizos, also at Lutheran) who is awesome and he removed my son's tonsils and adenoids and inserted tubes in his ears. For a kid with allergies and asthma, he is more active than most 4 year olds! I moved to the Lakeview area of Chicago 2 months ago and I still drive to Park Ridge!
