About Dr. Francisco Sanchez

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.

A great visit! Dr. Sanchez works alone, handling all the non-medical administrative chores...and somehow managed to stayon time. Very professional and yet personable, he answered all my questions and I didn’t feel rushed. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a good primary-care doctor :-)

Dr. Sanchez is exactly what I think everyone looks for on a primary care physician: he’s honest, listens and respects your opinions, even if they come from a place of fear or paranoia. Dr Sanchez genuinely cares about preventative medicine and keeping his patients healthy and informed. After spending a good chunk of my adult life with impersonal, robotic PCs, I can’t emphasize strongly enough how great it is to finally have found someone like doctor Sanchez. He also has a great sense of humor.

Doctor Sanchez is always professional and courteous in appointments. I have seen him for years now for a number of different things related to stomach, colon, and most recently stitch removal from a dog bite where he took his time to locate and remove them despite them being covered by facial hair, and he removed them successfully. He always gives me proper follow up care instructions and is happy to answer my questions. Highly recommended.
