Dr. Liszewski listened to me, was personable, but efficient. It was the best dermatology visit I've ever had. I also liked the remote scribe. It seems like scribes are common in dermatology but I prefer just having my doctor in the room and no one else. I hope Northwestern continues this practice even after COVID is over.

Dr. Liszewski made it very easy for me to understand what specific substance I am allergic to, and ways to avoid having issues with that allergen in the future. I also consented to having residents and med students in the room with me, and during my evaluation, I noticed that he seemed like an enthusiastic and thorough teacher to the trainees. They all seemed to be comfortable with him, and he allowed space for them to express their thoughts. It made the experience a good one for me as I felt very well attended-to. Everyone was also empathetic to my sadness upon learning my diagnosis.
