About Your Instructor
Instructor Kim Galloway RN, LCCEKim Galloway RN, LCCE graduated from The University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee with a nursing degree and got her feet wet on a general medical floor at Evanston Hospital. While there, she and her husband Doug became pregnant with their first child, and would later have all three children through NSAGO. They took a birthing class before their first. It empowered them, took away so much stress about the process, and gave them the confidence they needed. She knew she’d want to share that confidence later with other mothers. After moving to labor and delivery, Kim started teaching infant CPR classes, added Lamaze certification and began teaching classes about the birthing process.

As Kim’s children grew she switched to being a school nurse in Mount Prospect to keep an eye on them, but she missed the world of pregnant moms. Ultimately, that feeling led her back to NSAGO where she is a practicing nurse and our Birth Your Way instructor. When she’s not teaching or nursing at NSAGO, she loves to be outdoors either jogging, biking, gardening or just enjoying a good book.

NSAGO News

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.
