Updates for when you come into CCSD

Published by Marketing Team

As protests continue across Chicago and the nation, we express sympathy for anyone who faces discrimination based on skin color. We stand in solidarity with them in the call for true equality of care, justice, and opportunity!

We have been playing close attention to Mayor Lightfoot’s announcements and updates from city officials. As of June 2nd, we are open and excited to care for ALL of our patients! Here are some updates for when you come into CCSD for your appointment, so you can have the safest experience possible.

  • If you are taking public transit, please check up-to-date CTA information prior to your visit, as the status can change frequently.
  • If driving, both of our validated parking garages at 540 N. State and 10 E. Grand are open. If one entrance seems closed, try another access point, as the garage may be trying to keep access secure.
  • As of June 8th, acess to downtown includes Lake Shore Drive, I-90/94 and I-290 which have all reopened. All bridges in the Loop  have been lowered except for Wabash. Check here for the most up-to-date traffic impacts to the downtown area.
  • Our building, 515 N State Street, will have increased security for patient safety. Please don’t forget to bring a face covering or mask with you to your appointment. Please use the building’s South side doors (the entrance by the Palomar Hotel and Sable Restaurant). You may need to present an ID to security, otherwise proceed to the elevators and go to floor 9 for our office.
  • Please see our other health and safety guidelines prior to your visit to help minimize the amount of contact you have with our staff, and the amount of time you spend in our office. Unless you are a parent or legal guardian of a minor, please come alone to your visit.

Booking Now For Medical Weight Loss!

If losing weight is part of your New Year goals, CCSD is now offering a medical weight loss program! Semaglutide is FDA-approved to help with chronic weight management and stimulate weight loss. We offer semaglutide with Vitamin B-12 to help reduce appetite, slow gastric emptying, and promote better eating habits. The addition of Vitamin B-12 helps ease side effects such as nausea and fatigue. Studies show that patients see a significant weight loss when using semaglutide with B-12.  The CCSD Medical Weight Loss Program includes:   3 months of weekly visits and semaglutide treatments with our Physician Assistants.  With weight loss alone, one loses muscle mass loss which can decrease metabolism. To combat this, we offer a package of 4 EMSCULPT NEO treatments which further help with weight loss and maintain core strength.  Weight Loss Program patients can also receive discounts on skin toning and smoothing treatments such as EMTONE and EXION, to help keep you looking your best throughout your journey!  Weight loss progress will be recorded and monitored by an intuitive 3D body composition device, which accurately measures body fat, muscle volume, lean mass, bone mass and so much more!  We’re excited to offer this new program to our patients! Call us at 312-245-9965 ext. 5004 for more information and to start your weight loss journey today!
