. . . Our History
Illinois Urological Institute, S.C. was incorporated in 1995 by John G. Christensen, M.D. under the name of DuPage Urological Consultants, S.C. He was raised in Wheaton and after completing his medical training, returned to his home town and started a solo practice in 1988 at Wheaton Medical Clinic. In 1990 he opened another office at Mona Kea medical Park and continued at Wheaton Medical Clinic as an independent contractor.
In 1995 Dr. John Plante joined the practice which was then renamed DuPage Urological Consultants. The offices were moved to Danada Square in Wheaton and an additional office was opened in Geneva on the Delnor Hospital campus.
In 1999 Dr. Eric Lenting joined the practice. Services were expanded to include more in-office procedures, urodynamics, and bladder retraining. Additional offices were opened in Aurora on the Rush Copley Medical Center campus. The practice was renamed Illinois Urological Institute to better reflect this broad range of services and locations.
In 2004 Dr. Michael Rashid joined the practice. He brought expertise and experience in minimally invasive procedures and continues to cultivate this knowledge. Dr. Rashid performs surgical procedures using the da Vinci surgical robot system as well as using laparoscopic techniques.
In 2006 the Danada Square office in Wheaton relocated to the campus of Central DuPage Hospital Outpatient Services Building. Services and procedures are continually being evaluated and introduced for our patients. Our service area extends from Glen Ellyn to DeKalb and from Algonquin to Morris.
In 2014, Rebecca Guio joined Illinois Urological Institute. Rebecca’s career focused on cardiovascular care at Chicago and suburban hospitals. Just prior to joining our staff, she spent 6 years as a nurse practitioner working in adult family care.
