I am extremely pleased with each doctor I have been treated by at Lake Forest hospital and it's satellite in Grayslake. Drs. Gaetano and Kline gave me a better life and put in a stent, when doctors from another medical group said they couldn't do anything more to help me. This wasn't the first time NorthWestern has helped me.

Their nurse and doctor made me feel relaxed. I was extremely nervous and very worried what Dr. Gaetano would tell me about my liver. When I left the office myAnxiety was under control. When you are 76 and told. The liver doctor wants to see me I felt this was the end. Happily he said not to worry.
