As many of you know Dr. Jean Ruth is leaving NSAGO to make a new beginning in the great Pacific Northwest – she and her family will move to Spokane, Washington later this month.  She has been with us for 3 ½ years and has done an incredible job working with our providers, staff, and especially, the growing patient base she has served. The patient feedback we have received, both in person and with her on-line reviews inform us that she is truly a special doctor. We will all miss Jean and wish her all the best.


E Perelman MD NSAGOThe rest of the NSAGO family will continue to accommodate and care for Dr. Ruth’s patients. Dr. Liz Perelman joined us last year and has become an integral team member and excellent care provider for our patients.  She is available to see patients at our Wilmette and Glenview locations. Likewise Drs. Goodwin, Johnson and Saleh are happy to see patients for ongoing pregnancy care and gynecology visits. New patients are also welcome so feel free to refer friends and relatives.


We are also very happy to welcome Imaan Ansari, MD, who will join NSAGO in August. Dr. Ansari grew up in the south suburbs of Chicago and graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana. She attended the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee and then returned to Chicago for Ob-Gyn residency training at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center. We have been very happy to get to know Imaan as a kind and talented physician with superb credentials and a work ethic to match. She will assume Dr. Ruth’s schedule and will have hours in Wilmette and Glenview.
