Philosophy Of Care

Family medicine is unique in its focus on comprehensive healthcare for the whole family. Building long-term relationships with families while promoting healthy lifestyles and disease prevention is the foundation of my practice. I work to provide high-quality, compassionate care through open communication and respect for each and every concern. I was raised in the Chicagoland area and look forward to serving the people of this great city for years to come.

Dr Palash is patient, takes his time, is very thorough. His communication style is very clear and compassionate. He had a fair amount to cover in this past visit, he did so efficiently without appearing hurried. I am writing these comments for my almost 95 year old father who is so very happy with Dr Palash's care
