Nurse Practitioners (NPs) are Advanced Practice Nurses who have received advanced training and are licensed by the state of Illinois to provide high quality healthcare services for a wide range of problems. Advanced Practice Nurses take a unique approach to healthcare, stressing both care and cure, focusing on health promotion, disease prevention, as well as health education and counseling.
Our Nurse Practitioners understand the expense of healthcare and work to minimize costs as much as possible. Our fees are similar to most general practitioners’.
