Salem Makdah, M.D., is an internal medicine physician. He cares for patients in various settings, from primary care in the home or office, to acute care in the hospital, to post-acute care in rehabilitation clinics.
Dr. Makdah believes in combining the philosophies patient-centered and evidence-based care. “When treating a patient, I tailor a plan of care to their needs while still consulting the most recent medical information,” he says. “I approach care conservatively, minimizing unnecessary treatments and procedures with the intention of preventing complications. Part of this conservative approach involves educating patients about the fundamentals of health, such as maintaining a nutritious diet and exercising regularly. When other medical providers are involved in the care of a patient, I enjoy collaborating with them to ensure that the individual receives the best possible treatment.”
Dr. Makdah completed his medical residency at Christ Hospital and Medical Center in Oak Lawn and has been practicing in the southwest suburbs of Chicago for three decades.
