Shelly Agarwal, M.D., is the Chief Creative Consultant and an author for The Gyneco-bLogic. She is a Board Certified Obstetrician and Gynecologist. Okay, first-person time. I grew up in Chicago where my parents settled down after moving here from India. I am a first generation American, a true Chicagoan, and someone that has deep roots in the Indian culture. Yes, I recommend turmeric and coconut oil for just about everything. If one doesn’t work, try the other one.
I went to Morgan Park Academy for the majority of my childhood life. It is a small school in the south suburbs of Chicago, most of the people there knew not only each other, but everyone’s families, pets, what cars their parents drove, etc. etc. I then hopped down I-55 to Saint Louis University for both college and medical school. I never became a Cards fan, but I did go to some games. There, I found my true passion in life, super thin crust pizza.
For residency I came back to my hometown and attended Rush University. This is where Dr McDonald and I had the good fortune of meeting. We have been through 16 weeks of Gyn Onc, a number of life changes, and now our adventurous journey through private practice.
I practice in the Southwest suburbs of Chicago. My life, and my work, is all about balance. I work in the suburbs, I live in the city. Some days I go to the gym and work it out, some days I order (the above mentioned) thin crust pizza. At work, I believe in both western and eastern medicine. Can we fix this problem with natural remedies? Or maybe we have exhausted that and it’s time for the medications.
Thanks for visiting! Hope to hear from you soon.
