Dr. Lowell Scott Weil Sr. founded his eponymous institute in 1965 to treat the foot and ankle ailments of Des Plaines–area patients. Now with 10 practice locations and a staff of 15 podiatrists and surgeons, Weil Foot & Ankle Institute has grown into a recognized network that's seen the soles of more than 100,000 patients. This team utilizes technologies such as MRI, digital radiography, and old-fashioned feet tickling to diagnose conditions ranging from fractures and deformities to ingrown or fungal nails and diabetic neuropathy.
Dr. Weil recently completed a study, and presented it the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons, that shows a 63% chance of a nail-fungus treatment clearing a nail as long as there is at least 3 millimeters of clear nail at its base.

In 1930, Dr. Joseph Rosin and his brother, Maurice, opened a small shop on Cermak Road in Cicero. In 80 years, the shop has grown from a small family-run optometrist's office to a regionally renowned business that has sharpened the eyesight of celebrities such as Joe DiMaggio and Plácido Domingo and left its mark on the Chicago area by designing famous symbols such as Harry Caray's trademark glasses and the novelty shades that adorn the John Hancock Center. Today, Rosin Eyecare rests in the hands of the third generation of Rosins, ably helmed by brothers James and Jonathan, who continue a proud tradition of warm, personal service as they improve eyesight with high-tech LASIK and PRK treatments as well as stylish eyeglasses with scratch-resistant lenses. At 16 locations, including the newest office Long Grove, a staff of optometrists keeps optical orbs in high function with comprehensive exams, treating each patient's individual needs with products such as a contact-lens implant or a prescription safety eyewear.
Michael Pys feels like he has a lot of missed opportunities. As an osteopathic therapist who specializes in pain management, so many of his would-be patients have resigned to living with chronic pain, and thus aren’t seeking treatment. With this in mind, Michael devotes himself fully to each client—treatment begins with hands-on palpation and a one-on-one consultation so that he can determine both the physical and emotional affects of each person’s condition. He uses 17 years of experience to integrate multiple therapeutic modalities, which might include soft-tissue manipulation and release, massage, stretching, and postural correction. Compared to medicinal therapy, Michael’s technique is more inclusive, and it can be adjusted to treat ailments that range from migraines and nerve-related discomfort to sports injuries and chronic back pain from a career as a professional backpack model.
