In practice for over 25 years, Dr. Baridi is a highly trained and experienced hematologist-oncologist whose philosophy of care is “no one should be alone in a fight against cancer. You and our team of highly qualified healthcare providers are an unbeatable combination.” He is in practice with DuPage Medical Group in Tinley Park, Illinois. 

DuPage Medical Group was formed in 1999 when three healthcare groups serving the western suburbs of Chicago since the 1960s joined together. Today, it has grown into the largest and most successful independent multi-specialty physician group in Illinois. The mission of DuPage Medical Group is “to enhance the physical well-being of the patients we serve by continuing to provide the highest quality medical care available.”

 A 1986 graduate of the Faculty of Medicine of Damascus University in Syria, Dr. Baridi went on to complete his internship at Ysbyty Gwynedd Hospital in Bangor, Gwynedd, Wales. From there, he relocated to the United States to further his training. He completed his residency in internal medicine at Mercy Hospital and Medical Center in Chicago, followed by his fellowship in hematology & oncology at Finch University of Health Sciences/Chicago Medical School.

With an unwavering commitment to his specialty, the doctor is board-certified in internal medicine, medical oncology, and hematology by the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM). The ABIM is a physician-led, non-profit, independent evaluation organization driven by doctors who want to achieve higher standards for better care in a rapidly changing world.
