She's super knowledgeable, and does a great job answering my questions in a way that I understand. Her bedside manor is great. This is an especially big compliment because I joke a lot and she is able to handle my silliness while still being professional and efficient. As a surgeon, I was in basically no pain, and a week later my incision site is basically healed and scar-less. I cant think of anything negative to say about her!

Disclosures

Whitney E. Liddy, 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.
