Welcome to the U-OK Optimal Health Center.

During these unprecedented hard times, our office is focused on supporting all efforts of our patients stay healthy and calm. Most Media are spreading frightened news about COVID-19 deaths and sicknesses based on unscientific hype. Fear and stress in people are major components of their sickness and hospitalizations. Therefore, understanding and learning are important for our health. We are on the front line of the prevention and COVID-19 fight, and while also continuing to be a resource for those living with and at risk for different chronic diseases. Although COIVID-19 is a new and unusual virus, it is not as dangerous as it is described. Scientists predict that there might be the second wave of infection. And even annual flu might be dangerous for patients with chronic health problems. So, be prepared and stay well.

Help your body and believe in its wisdom. And we are here to help you!

At U-OK, we specialize in alternative medicine and integrative medicine that combines comprehensive Western Medicine with many alternative healing modalities

Dr. Elena Koles has over 25 years of experience as a physician and Board Certified in Integrative Pediatrics. She created the Optimal Health Center to focus on the needs of Chicagoland's patients who can't find relief in just Western medicine alone, but still want a highly qualified MD to direct their treatment.

From Dr. Koles:

Western medicine has helped many critically ill patients, but it's less capable of preventing and mediating chronic diseases. To help my patients heal, I combine comprehensive western medicine and many pearls from unique integrative healing protocols created around the world.

My focus and training in immunology and clinical pathology help me gain a deeper understanding of bodily processes. We start by asking your body what it's doing, but we don't end there. To create an effective treatment plan, we also answer two more essential questions: How and Why.

The Optimal Health Center specializes in treating children with autism-spectrum disorders and behavioral problems and treating adults with chronic degenerative diseases, such as diabetes, adrenal and thyroid problems, auto-immune diseases, hypertension, arthritis, colitis, allergies and so on.

In her practice, Dr. Koles utilizes the following healing modalities:

  • Comprehensive Western medicine, testing
  • Environmental medicine
  • Orthomolecular medicine
  • Lab Test Interpretation for individual optimal range
  • Biomedicine and Naturopathy
