I would like to take this opportunity to tell you more about myself and my experience in healthcare. I am originally from Belvidere, Illinois and I attended Rockford College before continuing my studies at Dr. William M. Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine, earning a doctor of podiatric medicine (D.P.M.) degree in 1984. Following my graduation, I pursued advanced podiatric surgical training as part of my internship and residency at Chicago Center Hospital. My practice is focused on surgical treatment of foot and ankle disorders, with a special interest in revision foot and ankle surgery. It is my mission to provide you excellent service, as well as compassionate care. I always strive to provide you with the same high-quality podiatric care that I would offer to a member of my family.

In addition to my extensive medical commitments, I enjoy reading, movies, art, and spending time with my family. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to further improve your experience at OrthoIllinois. My goal is to provide you the best medical care available.

I am looking forward to meeting you.

Here's what my patients are saying:

I have been a patient for 2 years of Dr. Bush and now Dr. Schwartz. I can not say enough good things about them. Both are superb as are their staffs.

Sharon B.

Dr. Bush is funny and forthright. He told me EXACTLY what is wrong with my feet, pulled no punches with the treatment options but ultimately left the decision for treatment in my hands. Highly recommend seeing him!

Kim S.

Thanks to Dr. Bush and Megan in Physical Therapy for all of the help with my ankle, I will be playing golf on our vacation in March.

"Dr. Bush and his staff are excellent! I would highly recommend him as anyone's podiatrist as I had foot surgery in Oct 2016 on right foot with 12 week post op recovery. Foot looks awesome and great healing process. Had second surgery today for my left foot. I am so happy and can't say enough praise for Dr Bush and his staff. They are top notch and make you feel comfortable. Dr Bush is awesome and would highly recommend him!! Thank you Dr. Bush and his staff!!"  Robin W. - Facebook review
