At Harper Health we provide comprehensive membership-based primary care internal medicine. Dr. Harper's 20+ years of training and experience enable him to diagnose and manage all manner of problems you may face, from the simple to the complex. This makes Harper Health, as much as possible, your one-stop-shop for health, accessing our extensive network of top local specialists for consultations only when needed. In addition, as a private, membership-based concierge practice, our independence allows Harper Health to provide its members the best care possible, with limited intrusion from health plans and hospital administrators.
Included in your yearly membership is a comprehensive yearly assessment customized to your needs and health goals (see below), follow-up and acute care visits, and support throughout the year. We make it easy, incorporating in-office lab draws and modern screening tools.
Along with primary care from Dr. Harper, you get additional support from our family nurse practitioner and administrative team, who are ready to help you navigate the healthcare environment. Our health coaches, dietitians and personal trainers are on call and ready when we need them.

Much more than a physical
Your yearly assessment
Unique to most internal medicine primary care practices, we have invested in modern medical equipment and technology that puts the best resources at your fingertips. We customize your yearly assessment for you. We’ll perform a comprehensive history and physical exam including discussing both current and past health issues. We will then assess your current health status with tests that include:
Fitness assessment (VO2-max)
Body composition analysis (fat/muscle percentage)
Pulmonary (lung) function screen
Endothelial function (EndoPat)
Customized exercise plan
Laboratory work: metabolic panel, blood count, highly sensitive c-reactive protein, homocysteine, uric acid, vitamin D level, thyroid status, PSA, Pap smear and others
Customize specific components depending on factors particular to your age, personal health habits and behavior, goals for the year and previous year’s successes. Your comfort, success and welfare are our goals so everything is relevant to you as an individual.
Use the same fitness-focused tools that experts use, including Hologic bone densitometer and CardioCoach metabolic analyzer, which provide objective data to help you achieve your peak level of health and fitness. Young or old, access to high-quality data is key to making the most of your efforts.
Sit side-by-side with you to put plans into action by downloading and setting up our partner applications on your phone or tablet. Change efforts are easier when the tools and resources are personalized to your needs and goals.
Need more support? Quality-ensured health coaches, personal trainers and dietitians are available as we need them.
Our referral network
Will's education at both a leading medical school (Northwestern University Feinberg) and internal medicine training program (University of Chicago), his decade of work with students at a top ten U.S. medical school (University of Chicago Pritzker), and his 20 years as a practicing internist have enabled him to establish a network of trusted colleagues and partners within the city of Chicago and around the country.

Dr. Harper is on staff at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, so has access to all of the resources in the Northwestern system. Yet our independence as a private, not employed, practice allows us maximum flexibility as we refer members to the best specialists available in the region, whether it be at Northwestern Medicine, Rush University Medical Center, the University of Chicago Medicine, NorthShore University Health System, Advocate, or others.
