Lynne Chervony Belsky, MD

Dr. Belsky

Dr. Belsky is  board certified in internal medicine, enabling her to serve as an effective observer and diagnostician. She notices imbalances early on, recognizes what tests to order, evaluates the results, and proactively charts a game plan in response. Ifa specialist is needed, she selects the best match for you, not only in terms of specialty but also personality - ensuring that you receive the highest quality personalized care. In addition to her medical training, her experience as a physical therapist enables Dr. Belsky to expertly differentiate between disease and musculoskeletal symptoms, possibly saving you the extra time, energy, and money associated with getting to the root of a medical problem.

Since she was young, Dr. Belsky wanted to be a doctor like her father, Abraham Chervony, MD, who set up his medical practice in Skokie, IL. Dr. Chervony loved being a doctor, and he took his time with each patient to make sure they felt like that they had a friend and an advocate to guide them though their illnesses. Walking in her father’s footsteps, Dr. Belsky practices modern medicine with an old-fashioned twist, working with you to find what you need to heal, instead of deferring to what health insurance companies dictate.

In high school, Dr. Belsky moved to New York City, where she became a professional dancer with the Joffrey Ballet for eight years. Through this experience, Dr. Belsky is intimately acquainted with being at the top of one’s physical game. She knows, however, that optimal health looks different for each of us. For some, it is running a marathon,for others walking two miles a day.  Optimal health is multifactorial and includes nutrition, exercise, sleep, personal connectedness, and stress management. Wherever you are in your health journey and whatever your goals, Dr. Belsky is delighted to support you in getting from “here” to “there.”
