Anna Laufter, MD


Dr. Laufter received her B.S. from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, her M.D. from Rush University, and she completed her Pediatrics residency program at Rush University. She has a passion in neonatal health and partnering with parents to provide expert care during baby’s first few weeks of life, and enjoys creating a relationship with the family that lasts from birth to adulthood. When she’s not practicing medicine, Dr. Laufter enjoys cooking, trying new restaurants, watching movies, and attending all kinds of concerts. She’s an avid traveler who enjoys yoga and a good bike ride. If you catch her outside of the office on a typical day, you’ll probably find her reading the latest book for her Book Club.
