You’ve heard of Mr. Right. And Mr. Right Now. Well Northwest Community has an interesting program called Finding Dr. Right. Northwest Community Healthcare’s successful “Finding Dr. Right” program is next scheduled in Arlington Heights on October 18th, making it faster and easier for area residents to locate a new primary care physician for themselves or their family. It’s free, and even a little fun. Don’t expect the hospital’s strategic marketing department to create a “Meet Dr. Right Now” program for the Emergency Room physicians, though.

“Finding Dr. Right” takes place from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, October 18, at The Wellness Center, 900 W. Central Road on the Arlington Heights campus of Northwest Community Hospital. The event will allow busy people to conveniently meet one-on-one with eight experienced internal medicine and family practice physicians to determine who is right for them.

“This gives people a chance to sit down with a number of great male and female doctors to get a good feel for their personalities and expertise without the hassle of setting up several appointments,” said Jackie Speckin, director of Strategic Marketing for NCH.

“Finding Dr. Right,” a registered trademark of Northwest Community Healthcare, is based on the concept of speed dating, which involves brief chats with potential suitors. In this case, prospective patients will talk with each primary care physician for five minutes and then rotate to the next doctor at the sound of a bell. Attendees should not seek medical advice during these brief sessions.

“We keep things moving in a fun way because we know people have limited time,” Speckin said. “It’s a fast way to get your important questions answered while learning about a physician’s approach to healthcare.”

Physician referral specialists will be on hand to help coordinate next steps when community members find a doctor who meets their medical needs. Complimentary light refreshments will be available.

Seats are limited at this free event, so registration is required by calling HealthConnection at 847.618.4YOU (4968). Attendees can also register online by visiting NCH’s website at
