 The clinic will handle "newborns to 90 and over, (medical) history, physicals, colds, lumps, bumps, bruises… We'll handle everything, anything ambulatory," said Dr. Dejean on Friday. 

Dr. Dejean has professional relationships with UChicago Medicine, Advocate Trinity and Advocate South Suburban Hospitals. "Between those three hospitals, we can either provide referral services or send folk to the ER if needed," he added.

The clinic will be open for appointments or drop-ins every Friday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The clinic intends to offer Tuesday hours in the near future.
