Since 1982, Dr. Irene Silva has been working with patients to provide the best medical care for patients in the Chicago area. Her experience in Internal Medicine is coupled with genuine concern for her patients. All our staff is dedicated to your comfort and prompt attention as well. Our goal is to keep you healthy so that you can live life to the fullest.
Doctors of internal medicine focus on adult medicine and have had special study and training focusing on the prevention and treatment of adult diseases. At least three of their seven or more years of medical school and postgraduate training are dedicated to learning how to prevent, diagnose, and treat diseases that affect adults. Internists are sometimes referred to as the “doctor’s doctor,” because they are often called upon to act as consultants to other physicians to help solve puzzling diagnostic problems...
To attain our objectives, we remain focused on solid research and tried-and-proven treatment techniques, invest heavily in continuing education, facilities improvement and well-educated, trained staff, and disregard the "quick fix." We feel that short-term objectives in medical care are not the way to achieve superior results in health.
Providing Total Patient Care & Health
Dr. Irene Silva
What We Offer
Dr. Irene Silva has been practicing Internal Medicine for a culmination of 32 years. She has practiced and trained at some of the most prestigious Chicago area hospitals. The idea for this practice was to offer complete care for the adult patient, utilizing her skills as a Board Certified Internal Medicine physician. However, it was not good enough to simply form a practice based on the traditional model. She wanted her practice to offer the most innovative care available throughout the Chicagoland area. She wanted this care to be delivered with the same compassion that I would want for my own family and friends. Finally, I wanted my patients to have unprecedented access to me. Patients should view me not only as their doctor handling all of their adult health care issues, but also a life long partner for longevity and well-being.
