Any recommendations for a good gynecologist in Chicago?
(Not an OB. I am a homebirthing mama. I just need a gynecologist now.)
Thanks in advance!
If you're looking for someone who is up on the current research evidence I would go for someone affiliated with an academic medical center, so either U of C, UIC, or Northwestern. I don't have specific names, but any of the attendings there will be up on the literature. If prolapse/incontenence is the issue and you end up with a urogyn, I like Dr. Kobak, but there are also several female docs too. (see http://chicago.medicine.uic.edu/departments___programs/departments/obgyn/divisions/general_obstetrics___gynecology/faculty/)
Did you ever find someone? I go to Dr. David Wechter in Hyde Park. He's my primary care physician and he does my woman care as well. His nurses are great. And if he delivered babies, I would have used him, but, he doesn't - oh, well. My husband and I both see him and he's aware of our alternate care choices as well (as in homebirth, chiro and accupuncture). He just moved from 55th in the Mellow Yellow building to the facility adjacet to the Bally's - so, no problem with parking.
