Our Providers

James Pera, M.D.

I love being a pediatrician and am so fortunate to be able to do what I love every single day.  I am here to care for your family and to provide the best advice and treatments that medical science has to offer.

I was born and raised in New Jersey and received my B.S. in Biology from Rutgers University. I moved to Chicago and attended Loyola University for my medical degree and training.

I have been fortunate enough to be able to give back to the community over the years through volunteer work in the Chicagoland area and Central America. I am happily married with three children and have a special interest in nutrition, sports medicine and preventative health.
