Dr. Mary L Mcafee has the following 2 specialties
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.
- Family Medicine
A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

I have a lot of health anxiety. My most recent labs were taken in 2012. At my last physical (2016), she told me I don't need labs sooner than every 5 years because I'm under 40) unless I have unusual symptoms. That makes me really nervous. We also have breast cancer in my immediate family, and she told me I only need mammograms every 2 years, not every year, even though my sister is the one who has breast cancer (and developed it at age 23). I am glad she thinks I don't have to worry as much as I do, but this style is not cautious enough for me with my anxieties about health. I have selected a new physician (also at Rush Copley, however; I do like the hospital). I am going this month for labs and a physical, and am terrified something is going to be wrong because I have not had labs taken in so long.
I'm surprised by reading the other reviews. I've had Dr McAfee for at least ten years. I switched to a doctor that was closer and came back to her because of the same reasons written in the other reviews. She follows up just as well as any doctor does. I've been in the hospital and she made the same visit as my husbands doctor did when he was hospitalized recently. she listens to me and we have a commraderie. I appreciate her bedside manor. She gives me suggestions and resources and explains my options. She ordered tests after one look at my thyroid which the other doctor didnt seem to think was necessary and I may have to have surgery now after seeing an endocrinologist that she recommended. I have waited at other doctors offices for a lot longer than hers. My sons doctor had to look up his symptoms on google. I say welcome to healthcare in 2014.
It's unfortunate that Dr. McAfee is allowed to practice medicine in the state of Illinois. She does not take the time to listen to her patients or work with them. She makes a lackluster effort if you are in the hospital, but I think that is to save face with her colleagues. Don't use this doctor. Find a new one immediately. I can not emphasize enough of how dangerous of a doctor she is.
