Patient Information

Visiting the Clinic

We are located in the Duchossois Center for Advanced Medicine (DCAM), at 5758 S. Maryland Avenue, on the 3rd floor, Unit 3H. Tell the coordinator at the front desk that you’re checking in for the Ryan Center.

DO bring your photo ID and payment.
We need the payment at the time of your appointment, as we are unable to make payment plans. We accept cash, money, and credit cards. We do not accept personal checks.

DON’T bring babies or small children.
We don’t allow babies or small children in the clinic, so if you have children, you will have to make arrangements for their care while you are at your appointment.

DO be on time.
It can be difficult to find parking around the hospital, so if you’re driving, be sure you allow enough time for parking so you’re not late to the appointment. If you are more than 30 minutes late for your appointment, you will be rescheduled.
