It is my honor to CMAG0116_CV1-caebc087.jpegonce again be named as one of the 2016 National Top Doctors in the field of Reproductive Endocrinology. This designation puts myself and Fertility Centers of Illinois' Dr. Edward Marut in the top 1 percent of specialists in this country.  

In addition, Dr. Marut and I have been included in the recent 2016 Top Doctors edition of Chicago magazine for the field of reproductive endocrinology and have received the Top Doctor distinction numerous times in previous years. FCI's Dr. Angeline Beltsos, Dr. Brian Kaplan, Dr. John Rapisarda and Dr. Meike Uhler were named Regional Top Doctors, placing them among the top 10 to 15 percent of physicians in the region.

I have to thank the wonderful people at Buffalo Grove, Crystal Lake and Highland Park IVF. I could not achieve this highly acclaimed recognition year after year without the help of my hard-working, very dedicated staff.

Chicago magazine works with the health care and information firm Castle Connolly Medical to create the list, which also appears in the America's Top Doctors publication.

I take so much pride in treating patients with compassion and respect, and helping them achieve their dreams of creating the family that they want.
It is deeply humbling that I have received the America's Top Doctor honor every year since 2001.
Castle Connolly Medical Ltd. Identifies top doctors, both nationally and regionally, based on an extensive nominations process open to all licensed physicians in America. The firm makes an annual survey available to licensed physicians nationwide, asking them to nominate up to 10 doctors they view as the best in their own specialty and up to three MDs in other specialties. Physicians are instructed to take into account such factors as education, hospital appointment, board certifications and bedside manner. Doctors cannot nominate themselves, and the Castle Connolly physician-led research team reviews and screens all nominated physicians before making their selections.
Physicians cannot pay to be selected as a Castle Connolly Top Doctor, and less than 2 percent of the nation's physicians in clinical practice are selected.

Thank you  to all of my patients and colleagues who have shown me much support throughout the years. If you have questions about choosing a reproductive endocrinologist - or want to explore your fertility treatment options - please contact me at, call (888) 900-4649 or visit my website:
