Care Philosophy
As a physician I feel I must combine the use of the most modern of medical knowledge and technology with a traditional 1:1 patient-physician relationship to help the patient understand and overcome his or her illness.

With requirements by Medicare and insurance companies that we use computerized medical record systems, we have lengthened our patient visits to allow us to be able to maintain our communication with patients and prevent the electronic health records from interfering with that communication.

For over twenty years, Rudolph Albores, MD has served his community as an Internal Medicine doctor. Dr. Albores achieved his medical education from Loyola University of Chicago Stritch School of Medicine and his undergraduate degree from Knox College in Galesburg, Illinois. His post-graduate medical education was done at McGaw Medical Center of Northwestern University in Chicago.

Dr. Albores provides comprehensive patient care for adults in the western suburbs of Chicago with a focus on disease prevention, as well as treatment of illnesses and injuries. With careful attention to detail, Dr. Albores thoroughly evaluates each patient as an individual and works with them to determine their ideal plan of care. He is sure to educate his patients on their treatment options to the utmost of his ability.

Fluent in Spanish, Dr. Albores enjoys travelling with his family. He also spends his free time outdoors as much as possible and enjoys music.

Between Doctor Visits,
More Communication Means Better Health

Dr. Sachtleben, Dr. Albores and the Hinsdale Internal Medicine (HIMA) staff members are excited to announce an expansion of our services for Medicare patients who qualify with chronic diseases. HIMA’s patient engagement program will improve the overall health of our patients through communication and monitoring.

A care manager, working closely with our physicians, will now be assigned to each patient to provide a greater level of communication and to allow patients to be more involved in their care. These care managers are certified clinicians who call patients regularly to check on their health status in-between office visits, which can often be months, or even a year, apart. They will also work with each patient and the doctor to develop and update a personalized health care plan, focusing on the patient’s medical history, lifestyle and personal goals.

Ultimately, Drs. Sachtleben and Albores hope to help their patients avoid unnecessary ER visits and enjoy better health through this patient engagement program. A care manager’s frequent communication, monitoring and support, along with regular doctor visits, will make a real difference to many people with chronic diseases.

Services Offered

Doctors of Hinsdale Internal Medicine, called internists, focus on comprehensive adult medicine. While the name Hinsdale Internal Medicine may lead one to believe that internists only treat internal problems, this is not the case. Doctors of Hinsdale Internal Medicine treat the whole person, not just internal organs. They care for their patients for life, from late teen years through old age.
While an internist is often confused with a general or family practitioner there are distinct differences between the two. For instance, an internist devotes three years of education to studying adult medicine, specifically learning how to prevent, diagnose, and treat diseases that affect adults. Internists don't deliver babies, don't treat children, and don't do surgery.
They do however have wide-ranging knowledge of complex diseases that affect adults. Internists are specifically trained not only to diagnose and treat disease, but to prevent the initial onset of these diseases by recognizing and controlling risk factors such as elevated blood pressure and cholesterol. Internists are trained to diagnose and treat chronic illness and specifically situations where several different illnesses may strike at the same time.
