BUFFALO GROVE, IL – August 2 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Greater Northwest Medical Group, including 13 Internal Medicine and Family Practice physicians, treating patients at its Buffalo Grove, Arlington Heights, and Glenview offices, announces the addition of Registered Dietician, Susan Stein.

According to Dr. Monika Cohen, one of the physicians of Greater Northwest Medical Group, who is Certified in Bone Densitometry by the International Society of Clinical Densitometry and has extensive treating patients with osteoporosis, “The media and advertisers of weight loss and nutritional products bombard all of us daily with an overwhelming number of choices. The danger is that each person’s unique medical history, medications, and other important treatment factors are not considered in mass marketing advertising. To safeguard our patients’ health, the practice offers the services of our nutritionist, who ensures that each patient’s medical situation is considered in a diet plan that is approved and monitored by the physician. This customized approach appeals to today’s educated healthcare consumers, who don’t accept the ‘one size fits all’ fad diets.”

Susan Stein received her undergraduate degree from Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri. She completed the didactic program in Nutrition and a Dietetic internship at Loyola University, Chicago. Susan has more than twelve years of experience with the Good Health Program of Rush North Shore Medical Center. Over the past five years, Ms. Stein has also been affiliated with Northwest Gastroenterologists as a consultant dietitian, consulting patients in dietary and behavioral issues related to an individual’s medical treatment plan.

Susan states, “I was attracted to Greater Northwest Medical Group’s philosophy that a nutritional plan tailored to the special needs of each patient is an integral part of effective disease management and sustained good health. I look forward to working with patients to improve their overall health by assessing and analyzing their needs, developing customized nutritional plans, educating, advising, counseling and supporting their efforts.”
