Over our 27+ year history, the Institute for Personal Development has assembled a team of experienced, health professionals relentless in their devotion to helping individuals achieve enduring, long-lasting, mental, emotional and physical wellbeing. IPD has over 50 practitioners in 9 Chicagoland locations, providing Psychological, Psychiatric, and Functional Medicine Evaluations and treatment. We strive to look for root causes of conditions rather than just suppress symptoms and manage disease with medication. We know healing occurs through genuine human relationships and engagement with others. IPD treats each patient as a unique individual with psychological, biological, social and spiritual lives which need to be integrated in their care. We strive to apply the latest science-based diagnostics, assign the most appropriate clinicians with the latest advancements in psychology, psychiatry, brain science and functional medicine. In addition, at IPD we recognize that there is no substitute in caring for patients than spending TIME with our patients.
Founded in 1991 by Dr Ronald Wuest M.D., with a passion to provide the excellence in care, the Institute for Personal Development has now grown to become one of the largest and most progressive private mental health and functional medicine clinics in the country.
In May 2019, IPD joined DuPage Medical Group (DMG), the largest independent, multi-specialty physician group in Illinois. With more than 750 primary and specialty physicians in over 120 suburban Chicago locations, our partnership with DMG allows us to play an important role in the delivery of integrated, holistic care to an expanded patient community.
