We are well known for offering cutting edge medical care, our physicians have been featured in the local and national media.

Dr. Norman Ginsberg’s interview on WGN News, New Type of genetic testing with chromosomes bring accurate results.

“Dr. Norman Ginsberg’s – Chicago Tribune article – The technology has been available for a number of years … but it has almost never been used prenatally,” said Dr. Norman Ginsberg, an obstetrician specializing in prenatal genetic testing at the institute. “We think this is the beginning of the next generation of how we’ll look at things.” More

“ Dr. Norman Ginsberg’s- Chicago Tribune article – The latest advance in prenatal genetic testing purports to offer parents more detailed information than ever about the child they are expecting.” More

“Dr. Marc Kleinberg- OBG Management article- It is reassuring to discover that I counsel patients who use medical therapy for chronic pelvic pain and endometriosis in a manner similar to that of Dr. Barbieri. Progestin-only therapy, particularly norethindrone acetate (NEA), is too often overlooked. In many cases, various birth control pills have been tried without much success yet plenty of adverse effects.” More

“Dr. Gil Weiss – Chicago Tribune article – Women now can be sterilized in the doctor’s office without sedation. Essure is a technique, approved by the Food and Drug Administration, in which specially trained doctors insert spring-like coils, called micro-inserts, through the vagina and into the fallopian tubes. The coil has a small fiber that causes the fallopian tube to develop scar tissue, according to Dr. Gil Weiss, obstetrician/gynecologist with the Association for Women’s Health Care in Chicago and Northbrook.” More
