Dr. Shannon Watley, D.O.

Dr. Watley is an Illinois-licensed board certified Obstetrician/Gynecologist.  Her personal passion aside from OB/Gyn, is whole food nutrition and teaching healthy diet & lifestyle modification.  She is a strong believer that physicians are to be teachers and guides focused on empowering the patient to be well. The physician should partner beside their patient to attain optimal health at every age. She insists that patients should be offered the possibility of a cure for their medical problems.  Managing chronic disease is necessary, but the emphasis must be on reversing disease wherever possible.  She knows the amazing healing ability of the human body to heal when it is supported properly. Dr. Watley’s focus is on disease prevention and health promotion using foundational diet as the key.  Dr. Watley put this belief into action two years ago, personally, and continued on by creating a medspa & wellness center to help others facilitate all aspects of health, beauty, and wellness in their own lives.  This center is the result of her own journey for health and wellness.  She believes that in order to find the path to our ideal body weight and desired health destiny, we need to get back to the basics of whole food nutrition, exercise, rest, & hydration.  Removing toxic chemicals from our home wherever possible and putting practices in place to lift our mood and reduce stress.  Dr. Watley is excited to give wellness presentations to the public and is available for consultations in the office.  She attended Nova Southwestern University- College of Osteopathic Medicine for medical school and Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine for residency.  She’s practiced medicine since 1997 and enjoyed many years in private practice.
