The Chicago Pediatric Clinic Corp. was founded by Darlene Egues, MD . She opened her office in Lakeview in November of 2000 with the hopes of practicing Pediatrics as she always dreamed. For over 13 years now, she has enjoyed serving the growing young families with their children in this area and the surrounding neighborhoods. She feels privileged to be part of their families and assisting in the overall well-being of the children who have come to know her as Dr. Darlene.
As the practice has grown, the staff has followed her through the years and welcomed exceptional pediatricians to the practice.
With pride, our pediatricians, medical and clerical staff work diligently to make your experience and your child’s experience as pleasant and efficient as possible.
The pediatricians work as a team and work closely with parents to ensure that the child’s physical, mental and emotional development progresses appropriately. They will explore and be open to new ideas with families and encourage questions.
