The Illinois Dermatology Institute (IDI) is the largest private practice dermatology group in the state of Illinois. Established in 2009, we now have 20 offices throughout Chicago, with Oak Park being the most recently opened.

We are an academically-oriented private practice group who value excellence and compassion in caring for our patients. What all that means for our patients is that we offer collaborative medical, surgical, and cosmetic care, with the ability to share complex cases with our team of physicians through our HIPAA secure electronic medical record.

IDI is a thriving organization, and over the past few years we have integrated plastic surgery into our dermatology practice for the convenience and benefit of our patients. Several of our physicians also volunteer at free medical clinics in Chicago (including Drs. Elizabeth Kiracofe and Lynne Napatalung). We also plan to open a research division in the coming months to offer our patients access to the newest treatments.

We welcome you to our practice.
