Mrs. Adams is a proud native of Mundelein, IL and so happy to be serving the community in which she grew up. Mrs. Adams started her nursing career at the College of Lake County in Grayslake, IL. She then received her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from Chamberlain College of Nursing in Addison, IL. As an RN, she worked in multiple departments within the hospital setting ranging from medical-surgical to orthopedics to oncology. She also served at the Cancer Treatment Centers of America in Zion, IL for over 7 years before becoming a nurse practitioner.

She was able to see doctors utilize homeopathy, supplements, and other complementary modalities to aid in the treatment and recovery of multiple patients. Mrs. Adams feels blessed to have joined Dr. Joseph Starkman in his practice. Not only does it allow her to incorporate natural treatments, but encourages her growth and education.

I'm so glad I found Dr.Starkman for our family. I'm a hairstylist and my wrist was sprained after picking up something heavy I was worried I would be out of commission for weeks . My wrist was lifeless, I couldn't even open a drawer. After one visit with Dr. Starkman I was able to go back to work next day with strength. I recommend him to all my clients. He is the best Doctor for all your needs !

They both do a wonderful job integrating wholistic care with pharmaceutical care when necessary. They are very responsive to any concerns.

Our Family of six has been with Dr. Starkman and his team since Dr. Elvove retired. Dr. Starkman is extreamly knowledgeable and is always ready to try what works best for each one of us individually. If one treatment doesn't work he is willing to continue to find something that will. In which, the end result has help to possibly avoid unnecessary hopital surgeries and problematic recovery processes. His natural first approach is something we greaty appreciate. He takes the time to explain the benefits to my growing (late teens-early 20's) children to help them understand the importance to health healing.

Dr Starkman has been my physician for years. He is very reachable, thoughtful and takes time to listen and understand patient's concerns.

Love going here. Always the best experience. We had given up almost completely on having quality and affordable health care. Osteopathic healing arts has provided our family very affordable access to health services. We were in a position where we couldn't afford health insurance because we make too much money (crazy, right?), and this was the perfect option for us. Highly recommend. Would do more stars if we could.

I've found Therese to be a fabulous practitioner. She really cares about her patients and goes the extra mile for them. I love that she uses functional testing to discover the root cause of the issue. She has vast knowledge and uses lifestyle and nutrition to complement other treatments. Become a member in the practice, your future self will thank you.

Dr. Starkman is truly dedicated to provide patient-focused and personalized healthcare. I brought my entire family here with multiple health issues and I was impressed how much time he and Therese, NP spent with each one of us to really hear our stories and help us find the best options towards wellness! Working every day in healthcare field myself, I haven’t met so passionate practitioners that genuinely care about you as a patient and want to help. The entire office stuff is very kind and attentive to all your needs. This is what the primary care model should be everywhere!

So impressed by Dr. Starkman that I drive there from Chicago. The cranial sacral bodywork is beyond compare. I’ve had structural issues go on for years and months with other practitioners that he was able to stabilize in a couple sessions. I have paid significantly more for far lesser care with other practitioners. Can’t get over how much time he spends with patients and the enthusiasm he has for figuring out solutions for both structural and disease-based issues.

Amazing every time, Dr Starkman is incredible! I've entered many times with soreness, pain, walking funny, off, and left with disbelief on how consistent Dr Starkman is and how good and normal I feel leaving.Thank you and if you reading have body pain, neck pain, joint pain, hip pain, knee pain, your gait is off, indigestion, stomach pain, psoriasis, you name it, and within a 30 minute commute to the Libertyville area, then I highly recommend contacting DPC.

I was recommended here by a family member for my two boys. We see Therese and she is amazing!! So nice and so engaging with my boys. She really takes the time to understand what's going on. I never feel rushed with her. Even when I have questions, Therese and her office staff are so responsive. Even on weekends they are responding to emails! I am so at ease with their medical help and I can feel that they only want the best for my boys' health!!

  • Exam rooms are sanitized after each patient appointment.

    • A maximum of two medical personnel are present daily.
    • A maximum of two office staff are present daily.
  • Our practice has a focus on education and prevention, so the majority of our members tend to eat well, exercise, and take high-quality supplements. Therefore, they are not ill as frequently as most Americans.
