Chicago Gold Coast Office

Our Chicago Gold Coast office is a few steps away from the iconic Chicago Water Tower and is less than a five-minute walk from several of Chicago’s finest hotels, including The Four Seasons, The Ritz Carlton, The Park Hyatt, and The Peninsula. This location is extremely convenient for patients who come to visit us from other states and other countries. We can help you make arrangements for brief or extended stays at these and other hotels in the neighborhood.

737 North Michigan has an L-shaped base that wraps around the corner of Chicago Avenue and Michigan Avenue. The Michigan Avenue side contains the main entrance to Neiman Marcus. The Chicago Avenue side contains the separate entrances to the office and residential portions of the tower.

If you are using GPS to access the entrance to the offices, the address is 151 East Chicago Avenue. The office portion of the complex is relatively small, which ensures a good level of privacy for patients who come to see us. Just east of the office entrance is the condominium entrance and just east of that is the entrance to the building’s underground parking, which provides direct elevator access to the office lobby.

Patients who arrive at the Chicago Avenue entrance to our offices are pleasantly surprised by the relatively low level of street traffic. This is particularly helpful for patients who want to maintain a low profile during the early postoperative period. Because we are steps from the Water Tower and the North Michigan Avenue shopping district — major destinations for Chicago residents and out-of-town visitors alike — it is very easy to reach our office from all of the major Chicago area expressways, train lines, and public transportation routes.

If you are arriving from Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport, travel time is about 40 minutes during non-rush-hour periods, but travel times lengthen considerably during the rush hours. Patients from northern Indiana are pleasantly surprised by how quickly they can reach our Chicago office, as long as they plan their travel away from the rush hours. The Whole Beauty® Institute is located in suite 760. When you arrive, a team member will greet you and prepare you for your visit with Dr. Cook.

Winnetka North Suburban Office

Winnetka is a lakefront suburb on the North Shore. Our location in Winnetka reflects our commitment to convenient but discrete service. We occupy a private stone building at 118 Green Bay Road. This location is easy to find, but it is away from the busier main shopping districts of Winnetka. Parking is readily available in front of the building.

The office is immediately across from the Indian Hill Metro Station, so it is easy to reach if you prefer to arrive by train. We have many patients from the northern suburbs, such as Evanston, Wilmette, Kenilworth, Winnetka, Glencoe, Highland Park, Lake Forest and Lake Bluff. For patients on the North Shore it is easy to reach our offices from Sheridan Road, Green Bay Road, or the Edens expressway. Patients from other northern and northwest suburbs will arrive via the Edens expressway or the Tristate Tollway. For patients in the Barrington and Palatine areas, it is often easiest to reach us via Palatine Road, which becomes Willow Road.

For patients from the western and southern suburbs, the Tristate Tollway (294) is a good path. The most direct way to reach Winnetka via the Tristate is to exit at Willow Road going east and continue until Willow Road ends at Green Bay Road. Turn right on Green Bay Road and our office is just a quarter mile down Green Bay Road on the right.

Patients from the southern portions of Wisconsin find that the Winnetka office is easy to reach via the Tristate Tollway (294).

Important Notice

For patients taking the Tristate Tollway (294) to reach our office via Willow Road Exit – a major rebuilding of Willow Road is under way west of the Edens Expressway and east of the Tristate Tollway. Please check your GPS system for travel times and use alternate routes if the traffic on Willow Road is congested. Fortunately, there are good alternative routes to bypass the construction. Please feel free to contact our office staff for suggestions. The Winnetka office of the Whole Beauty® Institute is a renovated vintage stone building. Our team in Winnetka is committed to the same standards of service as in the Gold Coast location.
