Dr. Tam and her team are amazing. After experiencing difficulties with my endometriosis, I looked in Chicago for a specialist because my previous physician did not take my symptoms seriously (despite a clinical diagnosis through sShow moreurgery). When I went to Dr. Tam, I was met by her team who made me feel heard and validated my concerns. I had to have surgery and the entire process was smooth; I understood fully what was going on - surgery was a last effort after Dr. Tam exhausted all other options with me, and was patient with me when I was in pain, upset, or frustrated. Dr. Tam has been nothing short of exemplary in her communication and getting me care when I need it. I would highly recommend Dr. Tam, Tim (NP), Alissa, and the rest of her team. Validation of symptoms can be life changing and this team does listen to you, which brings the dignity and quality of care you receive to the highest level possible. I am so happy to have found this team.

Exam did not take long, seemed thorough. Was personable, but I was annoyed and frustrated! My appointment was for 5 pm. I was not called into the room until 615. Then waited another 10 minutes. Doc came in for a minute for a meet/Show moregreet, asked that I put the gown on. Then waited another 10 minutes for her to return. Exam was less then 10 minutes. I suggest to respect a patients time! As you want 24 hour cancel notice, my time is important too! If the appointments are running late, place a courtesy call to the patient. That can have avoided me from leaving work early, to just sit in the lobby.

About Dr. Maria Teresa Tam, MD

Dr. Teresa Tam of All for Women Healthcare in Chicago, Illinois, is a graduate of the Rosalind Franklin Chicago Medical School, where she received the Dean’s Award at her graduation (1994). She undertook her residency obstetrics and gynecology in 1994, at St. Joseph Hospital, completing the program in 1998. She is Board certified by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, and a fully licensed physician and surgeon by the State of Illinois (license no.: 036.093565). 

Dr. Tam has been in private practice since 1998. She was the Associate Director of their Obstetrics & Gynecology residency program for 10 years. She is currently Director of Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery at Ascension Saint Francis Hospital in Evanston, Illinois; Assistant Professor of Clinical Obstetrics and Gynecology, Rush University Medical Center, Chicago, Illinois; and an attending physician/surgeon at Advodate Illinois Masonic Medical Center and Ascension St Joseph Hospital in Chicago. 

Along with her medical practice, Dr. Tam is also an accomplished medical researcher having been published in a number of professional medical journals. She is a noted presenter at national and international medical conferences having presented over two dozen oral presentations, abstracts, video, and poster presentations combined. To date, she has written over 13 published research papers and produced a series of medical education videos. She was awarded “Attending of the Year and received the “National Faculty Award“, an unprecedented seven times as an attending physician and Associate Director of the Ob/Gyne residency program at Ascension Saint Joseph Hospital in Chicago, and as an attending physician and mentor at Ascension Saint Francis Hospital in Evanston.

In 2012, Dr. Tam took a sabbatical from her private practice to undertake a fellowship program in Minimally Invasive Gynecological Surgery (MIGS) at Penn State Hershey Medical Center in Hershey, Pennsylvania. She left Chicago and moved to Hershey, PA for one year. There, she received advanced training in laparoscopic surgery and robotically-assisted surgery using the da Vinci® Robotic Surgical System. During her fellowship, she performed hundreds of MIGS surgeries under the guidance of some of the top MIGS surgeons in the country. She completed her fellowship in June 2013 and returned to Chicago to start her new solo practice, “All for Women Healthcare, SC“,  which, as that time, was located in the Stone Building, in Chicago.

In February 2017, thanks to a growing demand for her medical expertise, Dr. Tam moved to a larger, completely new office in the Ascension Center for Advanced Care (ACAC) building located at 2845 N. Sheridan Road, Suite 902, in Chicago, just down the block from her old office in the Stone Building. The ACAC is a truly modern, state-of-the-art medical building having just been completed in 2015. Dr. Tam’s new office offers patients a beautiful waiting area and four new exam rooms. The ACAC also offers visitors and patients the convenience of valet or indoor self-parking, and even a pharmacy in the lobby.

In 2013, Dr. Tam and All for Women Healthcare received accreditation as a Center of Excellence in Minimally Invasive Gynecology (COEMIG), from the nationally recognized, Surgical Review Corporation (SRC), a nonprofit, patient safety organization. SRC accredits the top facilities, surgeons and medical professionals worldwide that meet our proven standards. An SRC accreditation helps patients identify providers that have met rigorous standards for delivering high-quality perioperative and long-term, follow-up care and distinguish them from those who have not. Insurance companies also use accreditation to identify those surgeons and facilities committed to excellence. Earning SRC’s COEMIG accreditation signifies an ability to consistently deliver the safest, highest-quality care to all patients. This COEMIG designation requires a rigorous screening process and has been successfully renewed for Dr Tam and her practice from 2013 to today.

In 2022, Dr Tam was also accredited with the "Master Surgeon of Excellence In Minimally Invasive Gynecology" from SRC. 

The Master Surgeon of Excellence In Minimally Invasive Gynecology is a prestigious accreditation awarded to the top surgeons, physicians and medical professionals who are committed to establishing and maintaining a culture of excellence. This accreditation recognizes the surgeon, independent of the facility at which they practice.

Established in 2003, SRC is an internationally recognized, nonprofit, patient safety organization dedicated to recognizing and refining surgical care. SRC accredits the top hospitals, surgeons and health professionals worldwide that meet our proven standards. SRC’s gynecology accreditation program recognizes surgeons who demonstrate an unparalleled commitment and ability to consistently deliver safe, effective, evidence-based care. The program is structured to help providers continuously improve care quality and patient safety.

Besides medicine, Dr. Tam’s other passion is running… a lot of running! Over the past 20+ years, she has run in no less than 30 marathons (at 26.2 miles each!). She has completed full marathons all over the U.S. and the world including the Chicago Marathon (5 times, latest in October 2015), Las Vegas, Disney World, New York, Washington, DC, Rome, and Paris, just to name a few. She was featured in the news article, “50 Chicago Women in Sports“, appearing in Windy City Sports – Chicago’s Fitness & Recreation Guide Magazine, Chicago, Illinois, September, 1997. Dr. Tam fully understands the needs of female athletes and has helped many face special health challenges unique to their athletic lifestyle. It is no surprise that many of Dr. Tam’s patients are athletes, too. They love the fact that their doctor can identify with their unique needs as women athletes.

In all, Dr. Tam shows genuine understanding, concern, and compassion for all her patients. She takes the time to listen to their needs, as well as advise and educate them. As an accomplished clinician and minimally invasive gyne surgeon with over 20 years professional experience, together with her MIGS fellowship training, Dr. Tam brings an exceptionally high level of expertise and knowledge to her field, coupled with her warm and caring bedside manner for all her patients.

Amy T. • August 05, 2023

Really kind people at this practice, been going here for two years.

Prema K. • August 05, 2023

My experience with Dr Tam was excellent- 5 star for sure. The big challenge was that I had to wait for too long. My apt was for 930. I arrived 10-15 mins early. I was told the apt would only last as long as I needed to speak to the doc, like 20 mins. That's what I planned for. I had to wait 30 mins after the nurse checked my vitals for Dr Tam to see me so that meant my apt started at 10am and I finished closer to 1030. Next time I need to understand the timings better so I can plan my day, meetings and calls.

Lauren C. • August 05, 2023
