Brian P. DuMais, M.D.
I am a lifelong resident of the area, having grown up in the Beverly neighborhood of Chicago. After graduating from Georgetown University with a B.S. in Biology, I attended the University of Illinois College of Medicine at UIC. I trained in Pediatrics at Advocate Hope Children's Hospital, where I served as Chief Resident during my third year. Upon completion of my training in 2004, I worked for the neonatology group at Christ Hospital. I established DuMais Pediatrics in 2005.
I became Board Certified in Pediatrics by the American Board of Pediatrics in 2004. I am an active member of the American Academy of Pediatrics, and I hold appointments to the medical staffs of both Advocate Christ Medical Center/Hope Children's Hospital, and Palos Community Hospital.
My philosophy of care is rooted in the relationship between myself as the physician, and the patient and family. I believe that it is important that this relationship is based on mutual trust and honesty. It is my goal to listen carefully and to fully understand the concerns of the patient. Well-child care is the cornerstone of pediatrics, and in my visits I focus on growth and development and prevention of illness. When a child is sick, I always do my best to see the child as soon as I can, and in most cases can see the child on the same day.
