Dr. Lori Weiss was originally from St. Louis, Missouri. She received a Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology from Washington University in 1979 and subsequently received her MD Degree from Northwestern University Medical School in 1985. Dr. Weiss was a Pediatric Intern and Resident at The Children’s Memorial Hospital (now called Lurie Children's Hospital) in Chicago from 1985-1988 and spent the following year as Chief Pediatric Resident at The Children’s Memorial Hospital. She is an experienced pediatrician who has been practicing in the Western Suburbs since 1989.
Dr. Weiss sees children from birth until 19 years of age. She believes that as your child’s physician, she should act as an advisor and advocate for your child’s physical and emotional development. The most gratifying aspect of pediatrics for her is to watch young infants and toddlers grow and mature throughout their childhood and adolescence.
Vaccine Philosophy: I believe that all children should receive the recommended vaccines according to the guidelines provided by the AAP and the CDC. Vaccines are safe and effective in preventing diseases and health complications in children and young adults. Regular vaccinations help children ward off infections, and are administered as one of the safest and best methods of disease prevention.
I am happy to discuss your concerns about vaccines at your child's next visit. All children in our practice have received recommended immunizations. If your choice is not to immunize your child, please choose a different medical provider for your pediatric and adolescent care.
Dr. Weiss leads an active life outside of medicine. She is married to Dr. Brad Wainer and they have three wonderful adult children- Jessica, Zachary, and Carolyn. Her hobbies include playing guitar and mandolin, excercise (yoga, hiking, scuba diving,) gardening, and travel.
