Dr. Harries received her Doctor of Osteopathy from Western University and completed her residency at University of Illinois Christ Hospital.  She is a family practice physician and treats all ages from baby to elderly.  She has delivered and done hospital and ER work in the last 11 years of practice.  Now she does outpatient medicine so she can spend more time with her children.  One does triathlons and is on the sandpipers swim team and the other plays drums and guitar.
