Environmental and Integrative Medicine For Children and Adults

At U-OK, we specialize in integrative and functional medicine that combines comprehensive Western Medicine with many alternative healing modalities. 

Meet Dr. Elena Koles, MD, PhD

Certified Health Coach & Nutrition Expert

Dr. Elena Koles has over 25 years of experience as a physician. She created the Optimal Health Center to focus on the needs of Chicagoland's patients who can't find relief in just Western medicine alone, but still want a highly qualified MD to direct their treatment.

Western medicine has helped many critically ill patients, but it's less capable of preventing and mediating chronic diseases. To help my patients heal, Dr. Elena Koles combines comprehensive western medicine and many pearls from unique integrative healing protocols created around the world.

Dr. Kole's focus and training in immunology and clinical pathology helped her to gain a deeper understanding of the bodily processes. The method is to start by asking your body what it's doing, but it doesn't end there. To create an effective treatment plan, Dr. Elena Koles answers two more essential questions: How and Why.
