Northwest Community Healthcare’s (NCH) Medical Group has expanded its network of expert doctors as it welcomes family medicine physician Janusz Mejer, MD to the practice. The addition of Dr. Mejer reflects the NCH Medical Group’s commitment to provide residents of Chicago’s northwest suburbs with convenient access to experienced and compassionate primary care physicians and specialists.
Beginning August 1, Dr. Mejer, who is board-certified in Family Medicine, will treat patients of all ages at the NCH Medical Group office at 1700 W. Central Road in Arlington Heights. Dr. Mejer has been in private clinical practice since 2007. He earned his Doctor of Medicine degree in 1995 from the Karol Marcinkowski University of Medical Sciences in Poland. His Family Medicine residency was performed at Saint Mary of Nazareth Hospital in Chicago. Dr. Mejer is fluent in Polish – his native language – and English.
The NCH Medical Group offers a broad range of outpatient services in addition to advanced outpatient and inpatient continuum of care treatment options of the Northwest Community Healthcare system. In addition to internal medicine and family practice physicians, other physician specialties of the NCH Medical Group include dermatology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, neurology and rheumatology. To ensure optimum collaboration and continuity of care, NCH Medical Group physicians share access to patient electronic medical records across all locations.
Patients of the NCH Medical Group can go online to request doctor appointments, ask questions, download and complete registration forms prior to their office visit, and register for free health seminars. To help individuals better manage their urgent and day-to-day healthcare needs, NCH recently launched MyNCH, a robust mobile app for Apple devices.
