Inspired by a fascination with how the body works and reinforced by her work as a nurse’s aide while in high school, Dr. Katherine Tynus realized her calling early in life. It has led her to a rewarding career as a board-certified internal medicine physician—caring for patients and serving in leadership and academic roles.
A lifelong Chicagoan, Dr. Tynus says, “I am committed to this community, and I love getting to know my patients. I also love the impact that I can make for seniors since their needs are so complex. Seeing them come back feeling better is the greatest reward.”
In her down time, Dr. Tynus likes to expand her medical knowledge, share it with the community, advocate for physicians, and spend time with her husband and large blended family of 7 children. She also enjoys live music and travel.
