Dr. Sheila Berndt

Dr. Sheila Berndt graduated from medical school in 1976 at the University of Edinburgh, Scotland. A native of Scotland, she moved to Chicago in 1976 and completed her family practice residency here. She became board-certified in Family Medicine in 1981, and is currently still board-certified, and a Diplomate of the American Academy of Family physicians. Dr. Berndt was involved in training Family practice residents, and was Center Director for MacNeal Hospital’s Family Practice Residency Program for 4 years, and then joined Drs. Brad and Gary Wainer of Primary Care Associates in 1989. She has enjoyed being part of the practice for a number of years now, and was closely involved in developing the practice and designing our current building.

Dr. Berndt enjoys the variety of problems that we see in a busy family practice environment, especially the opportunity to care for families as a whole, and feels privileged to have seen many newborn babies grow into young adults, as well as care for the older population as their needs change. She particularly likes womens’ health care, with the opportunity to provide counseling, preventative medicine, contraception and gynecologic care to relatively healthy people. However, the absolutely best part of being a family doctor over a long period of time is the opportunity to develop relationships with patients and their families.
