Rita McGill, MD, MS

Associate Professor of Medicine

Rita McGill, MD, serves as medical director of University of Chicago Medicine's Davita Park Manor Dialysis, one of the hospital’s four hemodialysis centers. This multidisciplinary clinic provides complete care to patients with chronic kidney disease.

A clinician-educator, Dr. McGill has specialized in renal disease for over 30 years with a focus on comprehensive, collaborative care. Her interest in integrating data analysis into her practice inspired her to earn a Masters in Clinical and Translational Science from the Sackler School of Graduate Biomedical Sciences at Tufts University. 

Dr. McGill is a prolific researcher, publishing extensively on outcomes of vascular access and other dialysis treatments. She is a respected mentor to nephrology fellows and junior faculty in renal epidemiology and biostatistical support.

As a testament to her commitment to healing, Dr. McGill is a living donor, having donated a kidney to a patient in 2014.

About Our Star Ratings and Comments:

Randomly selected patients are sent patient satisfaction surveys after their visits. We get thousands of survey responses each year. The responses are used to improve patient experience and recognize staff members for the care they provide. Patient survey responses are also used to make star ratings for each provider.

For the star ratings and comments, all feedback on the provider web page is posted as it was given from patients. Comments that do not apply, risk patient privacy, or are not appropriate are not posted. Star ratings and comments come from a number of survey questions. A star rating is not given if a provider only has a small number of survey responses.
