Adnan Arif, M.D., is a board-certified psychiatrist who treats a broad range of adult and geriatric conditions, with special interest in depression, anxiety, bipolar disorders, PTSD, addictive disorders and adult ADD.
“I believe that in this day and age of fast-paced medicine, it is very important to get to know the patient well through active listening,” Dr. Arif says, “by taking the time to understand the patient’s struggles and by talking to the family when possible. My philosophy is to treat my patients the same way I would treat a member of my own family.”
Dr. Arif comes to Palos Medical Group from Community Health Systems in northwestern Indiana, where he served as Medical Director for the department of Psychiatry in a multi-hospital healthcare system. He received his medical degree from Dow Medical College, Pakistan, and completed his residency and a fellowship in Psychosomatic Medicine at Cleveland Clinic, OH.
