Good Pediatrician in Wheeling, IL?
Hi Can anyone recommend a good pediatrician around Wheeling, IL? Has anyone heard of Dr. Tatiana Scolin? We are moving there and need a doctor for our 4 month old.
Thanks for your help!

I haven't heard of Dr. Tatiana Scolin, but a search reveals that she does indeed have a pediatric practice in Wheeling. In addition, she is listed as affiliated with Advocate Lutheran General Children's Hospital (ALGCH), as well as Advocate Lutheran General Hospital. ALGCH is at 1675 Dempster Street, Park Ridge, Illinois 60068 • 847.723.KIDS (5437)
I know you're asking only about a pediatrician, but it is important that the doctor you choose have an affiliation/privileges with at least one hospital, preferably a children's hospital in the case of pediatrics. The reason for this is that, should your child ever need to be hospitalized, his/her own pediatrician would be able to oversee his/her care. Otherwise, the hospital would assign a doctor who doesn't already know you and your child.
Probably the best children's hospital in the Chicago area is:
Children's Memorial Hospital
2300 Children's Plaza
Chicago, Illinois 60614-3363
For a list of pediatricians with privileges at CMH:
To search for pediatricians affiliated with Advocate Lutheran General Children's Hospital (closer to you in Wheeling), simply click on the link below, go to Advanced Search and enter the required information:
If you don't find what you want in Wheeling, check also for neighboring towns of Buffalo Grove, Northbrook, Arlington Heights, Mount Prospect, and Prospect Heights.
Ideally, the pediatrician you choose would be affiliated with several different hospitals, including CMH and Advocate Lutheran General Children's Hospital. Affiliation should, at the very least, be with the latter hospital (Lutheran General Children's)
Another thing you would want to check is whether or not the doctor is board certified. You can find this out at http://www.abms.org/Who_We_Help/
Good luck to you in finding a pediatrician for your little one, as well as with your move to the Chicago area.Source(s): http://www.illinois-doctors.net/il-doctors/pediatr... http://www.drscore.com/Illinois/Pediatrics/search/... http://www.trialscentral.org/illinois-buffalogrove... http://www.advocatehealth.com/db/physref/Physician... http://www.advocatehealth.com/db/physref/Physician... http://www.abms.org/ http://www.abms.org/About_Board_Certification/mean...
