MY STORY

"Good results go hand in hand with good intentions."

—  Dr. Adriana Arguello

 

Divine Savior Healthcare is excited to announce Internal Medicine services are now offered at our Portage clinic with the addition of Dr. Adriana Arguello! Dr. Arguello brings a new area of specialty dedicated to adult patients.

Born in Bogota, Colombia in South America, Dr. Arguello lived in a population of 7 million people. She said, "It is comparable to Los Angeles with a series of neighborhoods placed together according to social class. Spanish is the main language and the food is spicy and meat based."

Dr. Arguello moved to the United States in 2004 and is excited to be part of the Portage community. Coming from a large city, Dr. Arguello said "I like the size of Portage and the pace. I like that this area is family oriented, there is a feeling of community and I'm looking forward to really getting to know the people here!"

Dr. Arguello is an Internal Medicine Board Certified physician since 2007. She received her Doctorate in Internal Medicine from La Universidad El Bosque in Bogota, Colombia. She also has background in Gastroenterology after completing her fellowship in GI with La Universidad Javeriana in Bogota, Colombia.

She later moved to Chicago, Illinois where she completed her residency at Mercy Hospital and Medical Center and is very proud to be practicing medicine in the United States and at Divine Savior Healthcare.

"Divine Savior Healthcare offers mindfulness of health maintenance for the community by providing services such as the nursing home and new wellness center," says Dr. Arguello.

It was Dr. Arguello's family who influenced her to pursue a career in medicine. "I was exposed to medicine from childhood," shares Dr. Arguello. "At that time all of my siblings were in the medical field. My family and relatives used to talk about medicine all the time during my upbringing, so I learned to love medicine. I wanted to follow their example to be able to help people, so as soon as I finished school I went into medicine. I have at least three role models: my mother who taught me that it does not matter how long it may take to get what you really want, at the end you can achieve your goals, a professor who I met while doing my GI fellowship taught me about discipline in my studies, and several attending physicians during my training taught me about bedside manner and compassion.

"I try to follow their example being persistent in my efforts to deliver the best medicine I can with compassion, considering my patients as patients and not as clients."

Dr. Arguello is passionate about the work she does and has had numerous publications and presentations in her area of expertise. She states, "Applying compassion to my medical practice while at the same time helping people to live healthy lives is the most rewarding aspect of my career."

Some of her passions outside of work include, reading, studying the Latin language and Greek history, and listening to music. If Dr. Arguello was not in the medical profession she would be a historian or multi-lingual translator.
