This conservative treatment approach plays fundamental role in managing endometriosis-related pain effectively. Our skilled therapists at Womens Health Group Chicago encourage patient involvement, offering them strategies for lifelong symptom management.

Nutritional Counseling

A well-balanced diet may help in easing the systemic inflammation experienced by patients suffering from this condition. At our clinic, Nutrition Counseling involves partnering with you and crafting better lifestyle approaches that aid in reducing painful symptoms associated with this ailment ensuring women across West Ridge experience improved wellbeing.

I've been coming to Dr. Awad and Dr. Mike for over 30 years. Never had a bad experience and actually look forward to chatting with them both. I was a little sad and nervous when I was told Dr. Mike was unavailable today (delivering babies!) so I saw Dr. Lexi. I should have known Dr. Mike would only hire the best to work with him. Dr. Lexi was kind and knowledgeable. She asked all the right questions and was very gentle. Great staff as well.
