Elizabeth Potocnik, MD, FACOG

Obstetrics & Gynecology

Practices In: Downers Grove, Westmont
Patients Seen: Adolescents and Adults

I val­ue the impor­tance of prac­tic­ing evi­dence based med­i­cine and feel patients should be well informed of all treat­ment options before mak­ing shared deci­sions regard­ing their med­ical care. I believe com­mu­ni­ca­tion and mutu­al under­stand­ing are crit­i­cal in pro­vid­ing the best pos­si­ble out­comes for my patients.

Clinical Interests

In addi­tion to my pas­sion for Obstet­rics, I have a spe­cial inter­est in min­i­mal­ly inva­sive gyne­co­log­ic surgery includ­ing robot­ic, laparo­scop­ic, and vagi­nal surgery. I believe when­ev­er surgery is nec­es­sary it should be done in the least inva­sive way pos­si­ble. This lim­its both com­pli­ca­tion risks and costs for patients. I have spent ded­i­cat­ed time com­plet­ing addi­tion­al train­ing to excel in all min­i­mal­ly inva­sive sur­gi­cal techniques.

Personal Interests

I enjoy spend­ing time with my fiancé, Sam, my fam­i­ly and friends, and play­ing with my pup­py Mav­er­ick. I also love cook­ing, trav­el­ing, and have a pas­sion for exer­cise. I am an avid run­ner hav­ing com­plet­ed sev­er­al half-marathons. I also enjoy water­ski­ing, prac­tic­ing yoga, and rid­ing my pelo­ton bike.
