Dr. Romi Chopra was honored with the Distinguished Physician Award and the U.S. Congressional Medal For Outstanding Contributions And Excellence In Patient Care And Teaching on Saturday, November 17, 2018, presented jointly by Rep. Danny K. Davis (D-IL) and Rep. Peter Roskam (R-IL) at the 38th Indian American Medical Association Annual Gala Banquet.
Dr. Romi Chopra was presented with the two awards for outstanding contributions in the field of Interventional Radiology and excellence in patient care and teaching.
“Dr. Chopra has excelled and made a difference in hundreds of people’s lives,” expressed the Indian American Medical Association-Illinois (IAMA-IL).
Excellence in patient care and teaching are the cornerstone principles that help drive Dr. Chopra. Along with his in-depth understanding of complex patient conditions and passion for delivering care utilizing state-of-the-art technology, Dr. Chopra delivers exceptional patient care of the highest quality.
Respected for his innovative, kind, authentic patient-centered care and a holistic approach to life, Dr. Chopra offers a health care paradigm integrating the healing and nourishment of the spirit (soul), mind and the body. Combining his Eastern roots and extensive Western medical experience, Dr. Chopra unifies the best of both worlds.
Dr. Chopra opened the Midwest Institute for Minimally Invasive Therapies (MIMIT Health) in 2004. As an interventional radiology and endovascular therapy practice, MIMIT Health specializes in minimally invasive treatments for arterial disease such as peripheral artery disease (PAD), uterine fibroid disease (UFE), venous disease and musculoskeletal disease (spine interventions).
Dr. Chopra believes the path to long-term success lies in treating patients’ spirit, mind and body – not just their medical conditions. His institute has given him the opportunity to create a well thought out environment where patients and their families can feel calm, receive the information they need and be treated with cutting-edge healthcare technologies.
