Biography

Rachel Zurek, D.O., is a board-certified family practice physician who treats a broad range of health issues in patients of all ages. Her areas of interest include women’s health, disease prevention, weight management, nutrition and exercise.

Dr. Zurek’s philosophy of care is based in prevention. “The best way to treat someone is to prevent them from getting sick in the first place,” she says. “I believe in treating the person as a whole. I’m not concerned just about your heart or your eyes, but about your mind, body and spirit.” For Dr. Zurek, communication is crucial to this mission. “The basis of being a good doctor is listening, asking questions and actually listening to the answers, and then working with my patients to figure out the best way to treat their illness.”

Dr. Zurek completed her medical degree at Midwestern University in Downers Grove and her residency at St. John Macomb-Oakland Hospital in Warren, MI. She was born and raised in Oak Lawn. “As a South Sider, I feel a special kinship with the people here, throughout Orland Park and the entire south suburbs.”

Dr. Zurek’s office is located in the Palos Primary Care Center South, 15300 West Avenue, Suite 220S, Orland Park. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please contact Palos Medical Group at (708) 349-0747.
