Big Update!

We've revamped our messaging and communications program and added new features!

Some new and updated features:

Two-way texting: You can now contact us through text! (This only applies to existing patients.) With easier and faster communication- scheduling, rescheduling, and cancelling has never been better! 

It's about to get even better when you use our all new online scheduler! Head over to our new page 'Booking an Appointment' to see it in action. Be sure to look over the page before scheduling.

We now also have cool new automatic messaging that sends reminders, reviews, and recalls! Don't worry, if we're bothering you too much, you can always opt-out of messaging. You'll be missing out on birthday wishes though!

If you need to update your information, all you need to do is fill out some really easy digital forms and they will automatically update in our system. This includes everything from phone number and address to new insurance information to any medical changes. Please let us know and we can send the forms over. 

With all great changes there are growing pains. If you notice anything weird or wrong with our new communication system, please don't hesitate to let us know! 



 We are pleased to announce that we will be moving to a new office next year! With a larger, newer office, we hope to provide even better care and continue growing our business. 

 Don’t worry! We will still be at our current office for a while! We only just started the process of remodeling and don’t expect to move in until 2023. 

 Our new address will be 5384 Grand Ave, Gurnee, IL. The new office is just a few buildings away, next to Dunkin Donuts in the next parking lot! 

 We appreciate every single one of our patients and can’t wait to expand our family at the next office. We look forward to seeing you at our new location!
