Jeffrey Mono, M.D.

"The practice of medicine is a very complex one in today's busy, high tech world. My goal is to provide my Chicago cataracts patients with a diagnosis, treatment options, surgical explanations, and advice. A working partnership, that of a doctor and patient, is necessary in the creation of a positive, productive result. I sincerely care for my patients, and offer them high quality, efficient health care."
