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.
DiagnosticsforU bypasses the rigmarole of intrusive visits to the doctor's office with thorough and speedy health and hormone panels that test the body's trouble spots. The most popular tests check blood type, kidney function, or general heart health, though teenagers often test to see why their parents don’t understand them. The lab's speed—often offering a turnaround time of 24–48 hours—is rivaled only by its commitment to convenience. Orders can be placed confidentially by phone, and results are returned by mail, email, or fax and shared with a designated physician as desired.
Reflecting its multi-disciplinary approach, MIMIT?Midwest Institute for Minimally Invasive Treatments?employs a team of board certified practitioners from diverse medical backgrounds. Four fellowship-trained interventional radiologists and two general surgeons helm the staff, which also includes three certified physician's assistants. Together, they approach healing with a focus on function, as well as aesthetics, and aim to empower their clients through treatment education. The team specializes in needle-aided sclerotherapy, endo-venous laser treatments, and radio frequency ablation treatments for venous disease, as well as pain-reduction kyphoplasty treatments for spinal compression. They also rely on a blend of non-invasive and surgical techniques to treat issues ranging from peripheral arterial disease to breast cancer.
Drs. Igor Dukarevich and Claude Harb keep their patients' feet pain-free by providing everything from basic cosmetic care to corrective surgery when necessary. At Advanced Podiatry Clinics, the multilingual physicians oversee a staff of medical professionals armed with modern diagnostic and treatment technologies, including digital x-ray machines, ultrasound scanning systems, and a Cutera laser system, which can treat the underlying infections that cause toenail fungus. This combination of technology and professional experience allows the practice to address a wide array of common foot and ankle concerns, fixing everything from ingrown toenails and sprains to bunions and triple-knotted shoelaces.
