My kiddo has aged out of pediatric care (he is 19 and in good health). What now? I assume we need to find him an adult primary care physician - does he still need annual check ups? Does your college-aged kid have a doc for annual stuff (do people do annuals any more?), or do they just go to an urgent care office as needed?

I'm looking for recommendations for a primary care physician who is also a naturopath, acupuncturist, or osteopath, or who at least is receptiveto eastern and/or complementary medicine.

I'm fairly new to the Chicago area; now that my medical coverage has kicked in, I'm looking for a good general practitioner / primary care physician. I live in Oak Park, but that's not really a restriction; I'm certainly willing to travel a bit for an excellent doctor. So, Chicagoland submodule of HealthFilter: your suggestions?
