Matthew Root, MD

Pediatrics

Practices In: Joliet, Shorewood
Patients Seen: Children and Adolescents

I am a strong believ­er in patient-cen­tered care. Good med­i­cine is not only about treat­ing a con­di­tion, but also about teach­ing a patient and their fam­i­ly, answer­ing ques­tions, and work­ing togeth­er to form a shared deci­sion in all med­ical care. Trust and under­stand­ing are key to all of the inter­ac­tions with my patients and their families.
