I am located in the new Arthur G. Michel, M.D. Center For Breast Health where I am the medical director. The Center is located in the Ambulatory Care Center of Highland Park Hospital which is attached to the south end of the hospital and can be reached from Park Avenue West. Free parking is available. In fact there is free valet parking there, especially helpful in winter. Feel free to contact the center at 847-480-2650 for more detailed driving directions.
The Center opened in February of 2005. In addition to the Center For Breast Health, the building houses Breast Imaging, Radiation Oncology, Nuclear Medicine and the Highland Park branch of the Kellogg Center for medical oncology. The Center for Breast Health and Breast Imaging are physically connected allowing us to both examine patients as well as get breast imaging(mammography and ultrasound) at one convenient location. We also use breast MRI in appropriate cases. We have the ability to perform needle biopsies stereotactically as well as under ultrasound or MRI control. In the Center we have everything needed for the evaluation and treatment of both benign and malignant conditions of the breast.

My office is located directly across the street from the Wabash entrance of Macy's(The former Marshall Fields). There are several Breast Imaging facilities in the downtown area. I utilize AMIC located on the sixth floor of the Garland Buiding as well as Joan Werber's and Ahmed Farag's facility at 60 East Deleware, Chicago, IL. An excellent surgicenter is also located kitty-corner to our building and another one 15 minutes north in the Bloomingdales building.
While there are numerous parking lots in the area, the most convenient and reasonably priced is the Grant Park North lot which can be accessed from Michigan avenue. Even cheaper and easier parking is available by using the valet stand at the front of the Garland Building. My office can also be easily accessed via public transportation. Buses run down Michigan avenue regularly. We are a short walk from the "L" and walking distance from the Metra stations. Of note we are only one block from Millenium park and just a few blocks from the Art Institute, the bandshell, the lake front and the harbor. On the seventh floor of the Garland Building is the home of the original "Heaven on Seven" cajun restaurant. So in addition to your breast evaluation you can get a great cajun meal and enjoy some of the best downtown spots.
