Dear Streeterville Internal Medicine Patient,

I need to take some time away from work for medical leave. After consulting with my own doctor, I expect to return to work within eight weeks. I know that many of you may wish to know more details, but I ask that you respect my medical privacy as I have safeguarded yours. I promise you that I fully expect–and have been told by my doctor to fully expect–that I will return to work being able to provide the same excellent care that I have always provided.

Our staff here will still be at the office while I am away. Alex and Lauren will reschedule all patients scheduled to see me in the next eight weeks for another appointment after I return on or around March 14th, 2017. If you need immediate care or you cannot wait for my return, it is highly encouraged to visit an immediate care center. Northwestern Immediate Care is preferred as I will have access to those records. The contact information is below.

For those that are not comfortable going to immediate care, I have three colleagues–all of whom are fine physicians–who are willing and able to see you in the meantime. Their contact information is below. If you want to see Dr. Narawa, Dr. Wallner, or Dr. Silva, please contact my office to coordinate file access and scheduling.

If you decide to see another doctor on your own, our staff is happy to provide you with a copy of your medical records upon request.

Thank you all for your patience and understanding, and I look forward to seeing you upon my return.

Warm Regards,
Dr. Rachel A. O’Mara, MD
