Best Doctors in Chicago

Doctors are so vitally important for our health and safety in our modern world. I just wanted to take some time to highlight some great doctors that operate in our own city of Chicago!


Omar Ojjeh


Dr. Omar Ojjed was voted one of the best in Naperville as a cosmetic dentist.  He has over 350 combined reviews from several review sites like Yelp, healthgrades etc.


Dr. Ojjeh received his Bachelor of Science degree in Dental Lab Technology from Louisiana State University’s School of Dentistry in 1999. He received his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine in 2004.

Check out his new location: 1 Tiffany Pointe #207, Bloomingdale, IL 60108


James Chandler


Northwestern Memorial Hospital

Dr. Chandler is an internationally renowned practitioner of endoscopic skull base surgery. He currently has thousands of successful brain tumor operations under his belt. His specialty, endoscopic skull base surgery, is a minimally invasive way to operate on the brain that typically results in quicker recovery time. He is currently helping to pioneer the use of state of the art 3D glasses and tiny microscopes to remove tumors through the nasal cavity. This will result in minimal scarring. He is currently the co-director of Northwestern’s Brain Tumor Institute and the director of surgery at Northwestern Memorial.


Michael Bishop

Medical Oncologist

University of Chicago Medical Center

Michael Bishop is the leader of the U of C Medicine’s outpatient blood and bone marrow stem cell transplant unit. This unit makes it possible to eliminate isolating and overly long stays in the hospital for their cancer patients. The main reason this unit was developed, was to allow patients to be treated and return home to their families in a timely manner. According to Dr. Bishop, “When you’re getting up and moving around, the lungs are more expanded, the oxygenation is better, and organs perform better. The No. 1 cause of death after transplantation is recurrence of disease. Why does one patient go on to get to spend time with her kids, and the other one, nine months later, her disease comes back? Understanding the biology—this has been the true focus of my career.”


Iftikhar Ahmad

Mints Medical CenterDr. Iftikhar Ahmad

Dr. Ahmad is a renowned doctor that specializes in Radiology and Cosmetic Surgery. He is also known as one who can perform the best facelift surgery in Franklin Park, IL and the best breast augmentation chicago. Dr. Ahmad achieves significant results with his patients who come to him looking to rejuvenate and refresh their appearance. Whether due to aging or other disfiguring incidents, he is sure to meet their needs.


Annabelle Volgman


Rush University Medical Center

In the United States, women only represent about a third of all physicians. That number falls even more drastically when it comes on to Cardiology. Only 10% of cardiologists in the US are female. This information comes from a study conducted by the Journal of the American College of Cardiology. This comes at a start contrast when you look closely at the number one killer of women—heart disease. Annabelle Volgman, one of the few female cardiologists, believes that a woman’s touch is necessary to deal with the devastating effects heart disease can have. It is considered deadlier than all the different types of cancer combined. She is the head of the Rush Heart Center for women. This center is the first of its kind in Chicago and opened its doors in 2003. According to Dr. Volgman, since opening its doors, the practitioners at Rush have learned a significant amount of information regarding heart disease and its effect on women. The disease has different effects on women that it does men. Although she is quite hopeful as the number of heart disease patients (both male and female) has fallen quite a bit over recent years.

Time to Imbibe Culture!

And here I am again! Inviting you to continue along our beautiful Chicago.

Something I have always loved is the fascinating history of places. Every place in the world has an unparalleled cultural richness and much, or rather all of that is built from the evolution of its history. It is exciting to discover the magic that exists behind such beautiful cities… just like Chicago! And there is no better place to learn that better than museums. Before I continue, I would like to give a shout out to my friend Seth Ryan at Lawrence Ryan Investigations.  He is one of the best private investigator in Chicago. (Thank you again sir)

The good thing is that here you will find the most representative museums all in the place! A large park that consists of three amazing buildings:  the Field Museum of Natural History, the Shedd Aquarium, and the Adler Planetarium, and in addition to imbibe culture, you can also walk, cycling, skating or jogging along its paths and beautiful green spaces. Great, ain’t it? … Well … to all this majestic set of wonders we call Museum Campus!

It is located off the coast of Lake Michigan in the south of the city… a nice location for an excellent view of the city of Chicago, amazing to take pictures!

But hey, let’s deepen! … To the point! … I want to write a little of what I can say about each museum … to see how much imagination can I bring back for you.

Entering the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago is just amazing! It has millions and millions of relating to nature objects and a library that… wow… you might  find more than 200,000 books! Amazing!

Among the permanent exhibits there are topics such as bird habitats, marine mammals, gems, fossils and ancient cultures of America, among other incredible ones.

But if there is something that will definitely leave you with an open mouth is the star of the museum …a huge Rex Tyrannosaurus named Sue! The largest, complete and best preserved specimen of this species ever found! A real gem of science, which alone makes it worth visiting this magnificent museum.

And to continue the walk, The Shedd Aquarium is an aquarium and indoor oceanarium where you can observe more than 8,000 animals of 750 different species. In addition, it is one of the oldest aquariums in the world, exciting, don’t you think so?

It features interactive presentations and functions in the oceanarium, so I think it’s more than a good recommendation for children and adults!

Screen Shot 2016-03-03 at 6.54.21 PM

The various exhibits are amazing! … You feel like you’re actually in the different places that they seek to represent, as they are very well staged! In my opinion, you can not miss the Amazon ecosystem, corals Rocky Caribbean and Pacific coasts… what a beautiful experience!

And as to leave the human world and get into the beautiful ocean depths, the Aquarium has a beautiful amphitheater where you can see in action dolphins, nice beluga whales and other aquatic animals.

As you can see, this place is my favorite and is one of the most popular attractions in the city, for visitors as well as for people living in Chicago and its suburbs.

And… to keep you out of this world, you can not miss the Adler Planetarium

It was opened in 1930, and it is considered the first planetarium in the Western Hemisphere! It has much to tell!

Its galleries provide a way to explore the wonders of the universe. It has amazing collections of astronomy books and instruments!. Astronomical artifacts from it’s collection belong to different ages, so it’s a complete journey through time too! … And I can’t forget… they also have fun scale models of the solar system!

Screen Shot 2016-03-03 at 6.55.05 PM

And it’s a plan not to miss, since with its amazing interactive exhibits Chicago Planetarium fills the imagination of visitors.

I recommend going through the three rooms for astronomical show there. Achieve incredible realism! The largest is called Grainger Sky and presents shows difficult to forget, since they use technologies never before used in a planetarium.

So you know, culture fans, Chicago is waiting with the doors of this magnificent space opened! And if you do not get used to visiting museums, do not discard the idea, I assure you you will not regret it!

Top Five: Guided Fun! Most Amazing Tours in Chicago

Visiting Chicago and see all it has to offer is a plan that demands a looong time, and that’s why if you want to visit strategic points of the city that will make you love them, the best option is to take a tour, and here, you are going to find the top 5 of the best tours this beautiful city has to offer.


While in Chicago you can find more than one food tour, but this is my favorite recommended one today.

Think of what a food tour of pizza would mean … maybe you stop to make a “decent tasting” pizza in every place … Well… No! What you will find is A LOT OF pizza in every place!

Screen Shot 2016-03-03 at 6.38.07 PM

You will also think that the fascination to try several types of pizza and know the different places is enough to make it worth the money … BUT … The tour guides are extremely funny so they take the tour to the top! … the story of Chicago pizza they share is very interesting, but their comedy makes the trip. Also they make the trip  easy with the minibus that handles the route.

This tour is an A +. I highly recommend it!


And if you liked the food tour, I have good news… there is also a version for drinks! And yes, I’m talking about beer! … A picturesque excursion in which you are literally wrapped in a beer barrel! … The bus in which you’ll be transported to different breweries and distilleries of Chicago, is specially designed to look like a super great giant beer barrel !… Drink here and there … inside the bus you’ll have coolers and ice to have no pause of fun!

One of the most popular excursions here is the Chicago Trolley and Double Decker (yeah, double-decker buses). You can get on and off whenever you want to visit those places you like. They travel about 15 miles per hour (20 kilometers) and have 18 stops. There are also private charters that are  available for special events and specialized tours.

Screen Shot 2016-03-03 at 6.40.16 PM

There is no excuse to visit Chicago and not make this excellent tour either with family or friends.


And if you feel a bit daring, you must embark on Chicago’s Haunting Tours. One of my favorite! … This interactive 2.5 hour tour takes visitors to some of the most actively pursued in Chicago places and is the top rated ghost tour in Chicago. You can choose among different tours that allow you to delve into the haunted history of the city through visits to places of interest of murder, cemeteries, haunted streets and more. Boo! Unmissable!

And finally, the one that wins the biggest prize in my opinion, is the sightseeing boat! Undoubtedly one of the tours worth attending in this city.

Screen Shot 2016-03-03 at 6.42.21 PM

In it you can enjoy spectacular views of the Chicago River and also once you’ve gone to Lake Michigan can have a superb view of the city and its skyscrapers that faraway look like a mural painting.

Among the tours that can be made are those that, in my opinion, are the right reason to put them first, cruises at sunset, which even offer a special service romantic plan along the river banks, and cruises at night, in which you can feel infected by the spirit of the night with live music and an amazing view of the city lights at night. A whole spectacle!


Undoubtedly, these are the greatest tours you can find in Chicago … I do not get tired of them!  …

Thirst of Culture?… Never More!

When arriving to a new city for the first time (anywhere you go), one of the first things that keep your mind working is to know as many things as you can about it’s culture.

Well, you’re lucky!

The word that best defines Chicago’s culture is: exceptional! You can enjoy a diverse cultural scenary: world class Opera and symphonic orchestras besides jazz, theatre, art and architecture, among others!

Chicago Symphonic Orchestra is internationally recognized, and no wonder! It sounds beautiful! It takes you to another universe (as usually expected when talking about Classic music… it will always sound fantastic). And a plus!… don’t forget to carry your student card, it gives you a great discount when purchasing the tickets!… equally if you’re more than 64 years old.  Nice idea for young people to spend time with grandparents! Luckily, you can go to the Ravinia Festival, which is its main outdoors scenary!… 


Opera is also other show that is absolutely whort it! Even, it’s one of the most wanted shows in the city when cultural lovers come. Lyric Opera of Chicago and Chicago Opera Theatre are both the most prominent companies of this wonder, and they always act in english.  Perfect time for dusting and wearing those elegant heels and the great dress in your baggage.


Other amazing experience you will live is going to the theatre and immerse yourself in the creative universe of exceptional stories in each play. I could say it’s the best representation of the process our mind do while imagining the scenes of an excellent book read.  In Chicago you will find from regional groups of theatre, to elaborated productions, and from classic to contemporary works. A whole menu for you to choose how to delight your eyes. In the theatre neighborhood of Loop you’ll find as many scenaries as you wish for watching the plays. Take a seat and enjoy the performance!

Let’s travel through time and come a little more to the present… technology advance once gave us an essential plan for hanging out with friends and family or to win someone’s heart… yeah, that huge dark place (really useful for the love to be expressed, haha!) and with the giant screen that we call “Cinema”. 

Films are an important expression of culture, and in Chicago is not the exception. My recommendation (you must really go) is the Music Box Theatre. A movie theatre from the 20th century with independent, foreign, classic and mute movies that are projected as an organ is being played live. Go figure!!!


An ecstasy for imagination!!… but it’s time to continue exploring Chicago’s culture…

And I know we already talked a little bit about dancing (well, I owe you much more interesting information about it!, there’s much more!), but we did it about where to dance yourself, not where to watch professional dancers “making real love” to music. 

Ballet, jazz, ethnic dance, traditional african and afro-american rythms are professionaly danced by art lovers who, for sure, have given their soul to their body movements… but there’s a special company that has stolen my heart. Well, I love the classic art, the roots are beautiful, but I also feel attracted by the current rythms, they make me feel cool and I know many of you feel the same… but now… try to imagine a good mix with all of these components… awesome, ain’t it?.. well.. I got it!… And I’m sharing it just because it’s impossible not to invite someone to watch such astonishing performance!  It mixes jazz, classic ballet and ongoing techniques, which makes it a “once in a lifetime” experience.

And what about the festivals?… Ok, ok… good question… well, I promise to dedicate a whole post to them, meanwhile, I give you a little advance:

Grant Park Music Fest and International Chicago Film Festival for the 7th art lovers… unforgettable experiences!!
