Dr. Savitha Susarla is a board-certified family practice physician who believes in working with mind, body, and spirit to achieve optimal health. She received her undergraduate degree from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign where she graduated with academic distinction with dual majors in psychology & biology. She then attended the Kansas City University of Medicine and Bioscience, and then joined the esteemed Cook County/Loyola family medicine program for her residency.
Dr. Susarla has been practicing yoga for 20 years and is a vegetarian, a triathlete, an avid traveler, and a sitar player. She opened up OM Medispa because she felt patients were not receiving actionable answers to their health concerns within the standard practice of medicine. By focusing on each patient as a whole, Dr. Susarla works with her patients to create lifelong healthy habits while also addressing their current medical concerns.
This vision led to the foundation of OM Medispa – preventive medicine and family medicine along with other services such as aesthetic medicine, bioidentical hormones, nutrition & exercise counseling, yoga, massage and more. OM Medispa continues to expand and change to meet the healthcare needs of the community. Since opening the medispa, Dr. Susarla has also undergone extensive training in dermatologic disorders & cosmetic medicine and often trains with some of the finest cosmetic surgeons both in the United States and abroad.
She serves as Assistant Clinical Professor at Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine where she is involved in the clinical training of both medical and physician assistant students in family medicine. Dr. Susarla’s goal is not only to improve the health of her patients, but also to contribute significantly to the health and well-being of her community.
