Practices In: Joliet
Patients Seen: Adults

I hope to empow­er my patients to feel bet­ter man­ag­ing their acute and chron­ic med­ical con­di­tions. I feel this can best be accom­plished through time, lis­ten­ing and part­ner­ship. By work­ing close­ly with a patient, I am able to pro­vide my patients with treat­ment plans that are sus­tain­able and effec­tive for each per­son­’s unique problems.

"I am so glad I chose *Dr. Szafranski. He was amazing. He took his time with me (40 mins.) he made a plan, treatment, explained my medicine changes. He even help with my diet (heart & diabetes). My 2 wk. check-up he was equally great. He spent 20 mins. again going over my treatment recovery from 2 wk. hospitalization. His professionalism and excellent care trickles down to his staff. I will definitely recommend DuPage Medical."
