Meeting an unanswered need
Dr. Louise Berner, Denia Arreola, and Marithza Monterroso started Fenix to care for the largely underserved immigrant community of Lake County Illinois. Our patients need flexible hours, 24-hour emergency availability, follow-up with someone they know and education about ongoing treatment. The entire Fenix staff delivers culturally-sensitive personal care in fluent Spanish. Our clinic provides all of this at a cost that is 75% below other providers in our area.
