We Are Moving!!

Featured

On February 1, 2017, All For Women Healthcare, SC will be moving their office in the Stone Building, to a new location at the Presence Center for Advanced Care (PCAC). While it’s a big move, it’s not a far move since the PCAC is practically across the street at 2845 N. Sheridan Road, Suite 902 (see map below).

The PCAC is a brand new, state-of-the art medical center with a walk-way directly into Presence Saint Joseph Hospital. Indoor parking with valet available. There is even a Walgreens pharmacy near the entrance. Validated valet parking is available.

Our brand new office (completed on 1/13), will be larger than our current office, with a lovely waiting area and four exam rooms. It will be so nice to have a little more room for our patients and staff.

We will be closed from January 30th to February 2nd for the move. Once we’re in, it will be business-as-usual by February 4th. Once we are in the new office, we will have new office hours according to this schedule:

Monday: No Office
Tuesday: 8:00AM to 6:00PM
Wednesday: 9:00AM to 6:00PM
Thursday: No Office
Friday: 8:00AM to 1:00PM
Saturday: 10:00AM* to 4:30PM (*12:00PM every other week)
Sunday: Closed

Phone numbers will remain the same.

We welcome you to come by and see our new offices next month!

Dr. Tam Inducted into American College of Surgeons

Dr. Tam was recently inducted as a Fellow into the American College of Surgeons. As such, she can now add to her title, the letters, “FACS” which stand for “Fellow of the American College of Surgeons.” Those letters after a surgeon’s name mean that the surgeon’s education and training, professional qualifications, surgical competence, and ethical conduct have passed a rigorous evaluation, and have been found to be consistent with the high standards established and demanded by the College.

The American College of Surgeons (ACS) is a scientific and educational association of surgeons that was founded in 1913 to improve the quality of care for the surgical patient by setting high standards for surgical education and practice. ACS is dedicated to improving the care of the surgical patient and to safeguarding standards of care in an optimal and ethical practice environment.

The American College of Surgeons admits to its Fellowship only those surgeons whose professional activity is devoted to surgical practice and who agree to practice by the professional and ethical standards of the College. These standards are outlined in their Statements on Principles.

The College currently has more than 80,000 members, including more than 6,600 Fellows in other countries, making it the largest organization of surgeons in the world. There are presently more than 3,200 Associate Fellows.

Her membership in the ACS, along with her COEMIG designation, is further assurance to all her patients that she brings to them the highest level of knowledge and expertise in healthcare, while maintaining a professional standard of ethical excellence in her practice.

Inspired as a Child – Dr. Tam in the News (again!)

17794296_sEver wonder what makes a person pursue the career they chose? Whether it be a policeman, fireman, engineer, teacher, accountant, doctor… somewhere along the line, a personal choice was made to enter a career.  Perhaps in your own case, your career chose you?

With Dr. Tam, it was a little of both. In a recent article by Scott Warner, published on the website of the renown Chicago Medical Society, he interviews Dr. Tam about her journey into medicine and how she redefined her well-established medical career at a time when most physicians have settled on theirs.
