    IC specialist in the Chicago area?

    Hello all

    I was just wondering if any of you all knew of a real good URO or IC specialist in the Chicago area
    I have a URO in Milwaukee(90miles away) but would really like someone closer.

    Thanks much

    I see a good uro in Chicago well Evergreen Park. It is on the south side of Chicago. Dr.Steven Pierapoli. He is awesome. I'm getting botox injections right now for my treatment. He is always out there looking for new treatments. Call and check him out. 708-422-2242.

    Botox helps with freq/urge and most with pain. It is a new treatment and most drs. won't do it.If you have anyother questions let me know.
