Vascular Specialists, LLC is expanding both medical staff and office locations to better serve our patients in the Southland and Chicago.
Saadi Alhalbouni, M.D., joined Eugene M. Tanquilut, D.O., CEO and President of Vascular Specialists, in June. Dr. Alhalbouni is a board-certified vascular and endovascular surgeon. He attended medical school at Jordan University of Science and Technology and completed his fellowship training at West Virginia University at Charleston/Charleston Area Medical Center in Charleston, West Virginia.
Dr. Alhalbouni brings to Vascular Specialists a passion for educating patients, and is known for his individual, patient-tailored sketches of medical conditions, disease processes and surgical procedures. “Sketches help patients understand what’s going on inside their bodies, and what I will do to fix it. I never want a patient to say, “the doctor did this procedure, but I’m not sure why,” said Dr. Alhalbouni.
“One of the things that drew me to vascular surgery was the fast-evolving technology. The procedures and tools are constantly improving, giving patients better results with faster recovery times,” he said. He is a prolific and respected contributor to medical and vascular papers and a frequent presenter at national vascular conferences.
He and his wife of just over a year have relocated from Kentucky to Orland Park and are enjoying tasting the region’s culinary offerings. “While I was surprised at just how flat and windy it really is in the Midwest, I am also delighted by the multicultural aspect here. The food is just amazing and people are very nice. We are always looking for a new restaurant to try.”
Dr. Alhalbouni will be affiliated with Advocate South Suburban Hospital, Advocate Trinity Hospital, Palos Community Hospital, Silver Cross Hospital and Franciscan St. James Hospital.
We have also welcomed to Danielle Roach, N.P. and Lisamarie Ruffalo, N.P. Roach comes from a family of nurses including her mother, grandmother and various aunts and cousins. She takes a special interest in the treatment of lymphedema. Ruffalo has a depth of experience in vascular and skilled cardiac care. She particularly enjoys using sclerotherapy to treat spider veins, giving patients more confidence.
Vascular Specialists has also opened two more locations in addition to their locations in Olympia Fields and New Lenox. Our Chicago office is at 1516 E 87th Street. The Orland Park office is at 16257 S 106th Court.
