SwedishAmerican Medical Group is pleased to announce the introduction of OB/GYN care at its new primary care clinic at 380 IL Rte 38 East in Rochelle's Caron Ridge Shopping Center (near Sullivan’s Foods).
Appointments are now available with Drs. Timothy Durkee and Sonya Ephraim. Dr. Durkee received his medical degree from the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Chicago and completed residency training at Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood, Illinois. Dr. Ephraim received her medical degree from the State University of New York in Buffalo and completed residency training at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago.
OB/GYN services offered include family planning, gynecological exams, infertility, and prenatal/postpartum exams.

In addition to OB/GYN care, the clinic also offers a range of family medicine services, including initial diagnoses, annual exams, acute care, preventive care including immunizations, and the treatment of chronic diseases.
