Dr Liszewski was AMAZING. First, he was on time. I can’t even count on one hand the last time a doctor was on time for an appointment. Second, he was incredibly thoughtful and listened to my concerns. At no time did I feel rushed. Third, he recommended against the procedure for which I was seeing him and suggested an alternative route. Again, most doctors would have gone forward with the treatment for which I was seeking without less invasive alternatives. Last, he’s quite charming in delightful, which gives him an A+ in bedside manner in my eyes.

Disclosures

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.
