Professional statement

ALL PATIENTS - PLEASE NOTE THE NEW OFFICE ADDRESS! Chicago Family Wellness is NOT a network provider for marketplace insurance plans! If in doubt, patients should CHECK WITH THEIR INSURANCE! Patients are STRONGLY encouraged to verify network status with their insurance PRIOR to their appointments! I am a firm believer in patient education. I want to educate patients so they can be active participants in their health care. My goal is to prevent health problems or address them early before they become serious, so that my patients stay healthy. My practice includes medical acupuncture, a treatment modality that has been found to be useful in addressing many health concerns. By offering these services, I hope to offer a more complete array of treatment options for my patients. Routine lab testing is done on-site, including blood-typing. I also offer facial aesthetic treatments with Botox.

Dr. Sanchez was the first doctor who really took the time to listen to me. I feel so much more hopeful about beating my illness now-and I love that he incorporates holistic healing and alternative ways to heal instead of justshoving drugs at me. First doctor's visit I've been happy with in a long time!

Dr. Sanchez's medical is more personalized. I never feel rushed and he is well versed in many areas. Dr. Sanchez went through every line of my blood work and explained what the results meant to me, instead of "everything looks good," which most other doctors would say.

I went to Dr. Sanchez for an illness that required lab work. When I first arrived, Dr. Sanchez was not the most pleasant individual; however, he did warm up during the exam. The office and medical equipment is outdated, but itstill works. He doesn't have a medical staff. Overall, the main issue I had with Dr. Sanchez is that I paid to have lab work done, but I never received my results.
