Judith Disterhoft, MD

Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine

Undergraduate: Wesleyan University 

I'm a proud Chicago native and have called West Sub my home since working with my mentor at PCC Lake during the IAFP externship after first year of medical school at Loyola.  I studied English at Wesleyan University in Connecticut, and had nine lives before Family Medicine.

I was a non-profit fundraiser, wedding planner, aspiring ski instructor, digital media producer, and I dream of starting my own Chicago concierge and event planning company one day.  Food is one of my great passions.  I consider myself a student of the Chicago restaurant scene -- I collect menus, follow the stars on Top Chef, and do my best to taste everything this city has to offer.  

Other things I love: Turbo Kick, reality TV trivia, QuizUp, dreaming of my next international trip.  I love West Sub because we work hard, I'm surrounded by brilliant teachers, and we value being real people, too.  I'm spoiled because I have my closest loved ones nearby -- and many of them are my co-residents!

I have graduated from Midwestern University’s Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine and finished my undergraduate studies at Loyola University Chicago. I originally come from Poland, and moved to Chicago when I was 17 years old. After rotating at West Suburban FM Department as a medical student, I realized it is an excellent place to continue my training as a resident physician. I look forward to serving patients from Oak Park community and surrounding neighborhoods in Chicago. Some of my interests include reading, traveling (many times to Disney parks), and listening to music.

Lindsay-Martin-Engel-MD-MPH.tmb.ashx

Lindsay Martin-Engel, MD, MPH

University of Illinois College of Medicine

Undergraduate: University of Notre Dame 
Graduate: University of Illinois School of Public Health 

Other: I was born and raised near Detroit Michigan by my father (car salesman) and mother (special education teacher). I went away to college at University of Notre Dame to study Biology and Spanish, and became enthusiastic about social justice and undeserved medicine. My medical experiences abroad in Mexico and Ecuador fueled the fire, and I went on to University of Illinois at Chicago to earn an MD and MPH in Epidemiology. I loved working as an AMSA Chapter President and national officer during medical school. These days, I consider being a primary care doctor to be my highest calling. I plan to focus my career on maternal child health and community organizing, and aspire to work in Latin America one day alongside my husband Pedro. My hobbies are yoga and biking.

John-Trimberger-MD.tmb.ashx

John Trimberger, MD

Wake Forest School of Medicine of Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center

Undergraduate: University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point 
Graduate: Trinity Graduate School 

Other: My path to West Suburban has been a somewhat winding road, every turn of which I am grateful for. I grew up in a small rural Wisconsin town never expecting to find myself one day working on Chicago's west side. However, that changed while in grad school when, as a lesson in social justice, I visited a Christian clinic in the Lawndale neighborhood of Chicago. That experience sparked a new passion for holistic community development and healthcare among the underserved. After grad school, I spent four fast years of med school in the beautiful state of North Carolina, where this Wisconsin Yankee fell in love with bluegrass, biscuits, and the Blue Ridge Mountains. I was drawn to West Suburban for its strong reputation in full-spectrum family medicine, outstanding residents, and the chance to work in one of several great FQHC's. My interests include trying to run as fast as my wife, Jane; exploring the world with a passport, a paddle, or a backpack; and reading great books of any kind, but especially ones by Wendell Berry, C.S. Lewis, or Timothy Keller.
