Our caring approach

In the Chicago area, there are hundreds of choices for brain and spine care—from physicians at large teaching hospitals and university medical centers to specialists affiliated with community hospitals. How can you choose a doctor who's right for you?

We're here to give you exceptional care

From the moment you call Dr. Foroohar's office, you'll notice a distinctive touch. One of her friendly, efficient staff members will answer the phone during office hours—no need to go through multiple layers of voice mail just to talk to a live human being.

“My staff is here to assist you in making it a pleasant and easy experience to deal with my office,” says Dr. Foroohar.

“I like my staff to be really helpful to patients,” she adds. “Even if it's really going out of our way, we try to accommodate and guide you. If you have your MRI and don't have a report, we'll get it for you. My staff also helps patients, especially the elderly, by scheduling their MRI appointment for them.”

Dr. Foroohar is affiliated with Northwest Community Hospital in Arlington Heights, Illinois, which features a CyberKnife® Stereotactic (SRS) radiosurgery suite. Her office is conveniently located in the Busse Center for Specialty Medicine on the hospital campus, making it easy for you to obtain MRIs, CT scans, x-rays and laboratory tests.

Many patients come from word-of-mouth referrals

“I have gotten many referrals from physicians whom I have worked with and respected since 2001, but I also have received many referrals from other patients,” says Dr. Foroohar. “I find that most gratifying. These patients already trust me. In many cases, I've treated their brother, their sister, their parents or their friends, so it's very easy to take care of them. They know what to expect.

“My patients are attached to me,” Dr. Foroohar adds. “They're loyal. I give them more time than other physicians do, and they appreciate it and leave with a very good impression.”

We offer a tranquil, unhurried atmosphere

Have you ever waited and waited in a crowded reception room to see the doctor—only to have him or her spend just a few minutes with you? “I have always wanted for patients to have an experience that's different from most medical offices,” says Dr. Foroohar. “And I have to say, most patients say that's so.”

We use state-of-the-art technology

As a board-certified neurosurgeon, Dr. Foroohar employs advanced technology including CyberKnife non-invasive radiosurgery. She also works in partnership with an orthopedic surgeon on lumbar spine (lower-back) fusion surgery and collaborates with patients' oncologists, radiation oncologists and neurologists in treating brain tumors and other complex neurological conditions.

Electronic medical records speed response time

Dr. Foroohar's office uses electronic medical records, or EMR. “Now everybody is doing it, but I've had EMR since 2006,” she says. “I have instant access to all my messages from anywhere, so when you call our office, there's not going to be a delay in getting back to you.”
