Services in a nutshell
More about us


It is a simple, old-fashioned idea. Combine expertise, intimacy, and dedication to deliver care so personal you can’t believe your children were ever cared for another way. That is the Donohoe Pediatrics way…to take time with families, to understand their stress and fear, to hold their hands, laugh a little and walk together through all the challenges that come with raising children. We all deserve this, but it has become a rare reality in modern pediatric medicine. Our practice is devoted to these principles, and we deliver it in a simple, clear package.

Our practice model allows us to partner with families to understand their child’s health, their personality, their challenges, and their goals. It enables us to approach pediatric care in a proactive, meaningful way. It encourages us to provide truly personalized recommendations and to stay engaged with families as their child navigates through today’s fast-paced world.

Here is how it works:

Patients join the practice by paying a one-time family registration charge followed by a monthly, per-child membership fee.  This is an all-inclusive fee that covers your child’s comprehensive pediatric care. No copays. No outside call services. No surprises.

The monthly fee per child is:

0 – 23 months: $250/month

2 – 4 years: $175 / month

5+ years: $150 / month

*There is a 5% discount for those paying annually.

**A limited number of need-based free and reduced memberships are available.

Our Team



Dr. Donohoe is a board-certified pediatrician with nearly 20 years of experience caring for children of all ages. After attending medical school and residency in Chicago, he spent the first four years of his career in the National Health Service Corp as the solo pediatrician in an underserved clinic in Milwaukee, WI. While there, he revamped the clinic’s struggling vaccination program and implemented a reading initiative to distribute donated books to families in need. He later returned to Chicago and worked in traditional private practice for eight years. He built a reputation as a thorough and thoughtful clinician who goes above and beyond for children and families who appreciate his expertise and calm, humble approach to medical care. In 2016 he started Donohoe Pediatrics, the first membership-based, concierge-style pediatric practice in Chicago.

Dr. Donohoe believes that despite significant advances in medicine, the key to great care is an unrushed, thorough history and a comprehensive physical exam. This requires time, accessibility, and continuity. He is proud to have built a practice that allows him to provide the personalized, high quality care that he believes in.

Dr. Donohoe received a B.S. in Mathematics from the University of Notre Dame in 1993. He went on to receive a M.S. in Environmental Engineering from the University of Illinois in 1995 and worked for several years as an engineer. He received his M.D. from Northwestern University School of Medicine in 2001 and was inducted into Northwestern’s chanter of the national medical honors society, Alpha Omega Alpha. He completed his pediatric residency at Children’s Memorial Hospital (now Lurie Children’s Hospital) in 2004 where he continues to hold a faculty appointment. He is also a Clinical Assistant Professor of Pediatrics (Community Based Primary Care) at Northwestern Feinberg School of Medicine and has privileges af Prentice Women’s Hospital.

She is passionate about guiding families in healthy living habits as these newborns grow into older children. She believes that good nutrition, sleep, exercise, and mindfulness are key components to good health and that these healthy habits are essential to teach children from a young age in order to promote life-long wellness.

She received her B.A. from St. Louis University in 2001 and her M.D. from the St. Louis University School of Medicine in 2005.

Dr. McGee received her BS From Howard University in 1998 and her MD from Meharry Medical College in 2002.  She completed her pediatric residency at UT Southwestern/Children’s Medical Center Dallas in 2005.  Since her return to Chicago in 2014, she has held a faculty appointment at Lurie Children’s Hospital.  Dr. McGee is a Clinical Assistant Professor of Pediatrics (community Based Primary Care) at Northwestern Feinberg School of Medicine and has privileges at Prentice Women’s Hospital.
