The Northwestern Medicine Ben Gordon Center of DeKalb First Street offers individualized care from qualified and dedicated professionals that are here for you and your family. The professionals here believe that counseling is a collaborative effort between the provider and the patient. During your first session, you and your provider will get to know each other and if possible, determine the best plan for your care. In the initial session, it is important that you feel comfortable to ask questions regarding your provider’s approach, education, and training. Your provider will also ask you questions about your reasons for coming, your personal and family history, and other healthcare information. Northwestern Medicine facilities offer access to world-class patient care across the greater Chicagoland area and Northern Illinois. Anchored by Northwestern Memorial Hospital, the #1 hospital in Illinois by U.S. News & World Report, our clinical and administrative staff and medical and science faculty come together every day with a shared commitment to superior quality, academic excellence, scientific discovery and patient safety. With Northwestern Memorial HealthCare, we’re dedicated to consistently providing high-quality, cost-effective, patient-focused care. We seek to improve the health of the communities, individuals, family and friends we serve by delivering a broad range of services with leading medicine and compassion. Because what makes us better, makes you better.
