She was wonderful!! She took the time to study my chart and ask questions to truly learn about me as a patient. Sometimes doctors can come off cold, and very routine. She definitely was not one of these doctors. She made me feel heard and like I mattered as an individual. I would highly recommend her to others.

I am a first-time mom, and Dr Isak delivered my baby six weeks ago. She was great throughout what was obviously a stressful time for me and my husband. Throughout the labor and delivery and afterward, Dr Isak was knowledgeable, calm, kind, supportive, and thorough. She exhibited the same traits and level of care at my six-week postpartum appointment. She is an excellent doctor, and I highly recommend her.

I felt really rushed during my appointment with Dr. Isak. I had lots of questions about labor and decisions I could make for my own labor, and I hoped she would help me think through them by providing advice and insight. But instead I left feeling like most of them were silly and that I should do my own research but still most of it would be useless. She mentioned twice that she needed to leave for another appointment, though she only spent 20 minutes with me.

Disclosures

Elsa Isak, MD reported no external professional relationships for calendar year 2021.

External Professional Relationships

Pharmaceutical, device, and biotechnology companies frequently collaborate with basic scientists and physicians within an academic medical center to help advance science and improve patient care. These relationships are important in achieving scientific breakthroughs and in establishing the effectiveness and safety of promising new therapies. In order to assure objectivity in clinical research and patient care, the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine (Feinberg), Northwestern Memorial HealthCare, Children's Hospital of Chicago Medical Center, and the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab have adopted integrity policies that require research and clinical faculty (in full-time, part-time, and unpaid/voluntary categories) to report compensated and uncompensated external industry relationships. Patients are encouraged to discuss these disclosures with their physician as well as to inquire as to how these relationships are overseen by Feinberg.
