Shelley J. Halper, MD, FAAD, FASDS
Founder, Dermatology Associates of La Grange & SJH Derm
“The relationship between a patient and a doctor is a privilege and must always remain the foundation of our practice. By moving forward with an employee-owned business model, we are still independent, and the physicians will remain the drivers of patient care and decision making, and all SJH Derm employees by virtue will share in the rewards of this type of care. I am thrilled to be at the forefront of this new model for medical practice ownership.”
