DOWNERS GROVE, Ill. — DuPage Medical Group, the largest independent, multi-specialty physician group in the Chicago area, has acquired Surgical Consultants of Joliet, LTD and Gloria Caruso, MD, SC. Terms of each acquisition were not made public.
As a result, DMG welcomes two board-certified surgeons to its medical staff. Dr. Eric Bass earned a medical degree from the University of Southern California, where he received the Dean’s Award for Academic Excellence. He completed a residency in general surgery at the University of Illinois at Chicago. His medical interests include colorectal cancer, pelvic floor disorders, anorectal disease and abdominal surgery.
Also joining the physician team is Dr. Mark Danielson, who earned a medical degree from Northwestern University in Chicago. Danielson completed a residency in general surgery at the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee. His medical interests include hernias, breast cancer, laparoscopic surgery, endoscopy and intra-abdominal procedures.
Both surgeons remain on staff at Presence St. Joseph Medical Center and Silver Cross Hospital. They will continue seeing patients at 2 Uno Circle in Joliet. Appointments are available by calling (815) 725‑2277. Meanwhile, DMG also welcomes Dr. Gloria Caruso, a board-certified gastroenterologist. She earned a medical degree from Chicago Medical School. She completed a residency in internal medicine at Loyola University Medical Center and a fellowship in gastroenterology at Loyola University Medical Center in Chicago.
Caruso will be on staff at Northwestern Medicine Central DuPage Hospital, Edward Hospital and Northwestern Medicine Delnor Hospital. While her Bloomingdale office will close, she will begin seeing patients in two locations — at 25 N. Winfield Road, Suite 300, in Winfield, and at 4575 Weaver Parkway, Suite 200, in Warrenville. Patients can call 630−717−2600 to schedule an appointment with Caruso at both locations.
