May 20, 2016

As part of its growing array of convenient healthcare options, Edward-Elmhurst Health is now offering online scheduling for patients to make appointments with providers in their physician’s office.

Consumers can visit to schedule a visit with one of more than 120 physicians, physician assistants or advance practice clinicians who specialize in family medicine, internal medicine, allergies, endocrinology, gastroenterology, midwifery, nephrology, obstetrics, otolaryngology (ear, nose and throat), pediatrics and rheumatology. 

Online scheduling is available for new and current patients of Edward Medical Group, Elmhurst Clinic, Elmhurst Medical Associates and Elmhurst Memorial Medical Group.

Edward-Elmhurst is among the first health systems in the country to provide real-time online scheduling for physician’s office appointments.

“Booking an appointment with one of our clinicians is now as easy as booking a table at a restaurant or picking your seat on a flight,” says Bobbie Byrne, MD, MBA, FAAP, Executive Vice President, Consumer Driven Health, Edward-Elmhurst Health. “No more waiting on hold or trading calls with the physician’s office. And we offer same-day appointments at many locations. Consumers have told us they want to take charge of their healthcare. This is another way Edward-Elmhurst helps them do that.”

Patients continue to have the option of calling the physician’s office directly or calling the Physician Referral Hotline, (630) 527-6363, to request an appointment with more than 1,800 physicians and providers in the Edward-Elmhurst system.
