Valerie Saffar is very knowledgeable, very thorough, very patient, very kind, and very caring. She is extremely nice. She has a gentle touch and handles the visit in a very professional way. Valerie makes it a point repeatedly to interact directly with the patient; this is very noteworthy. Cannot emphasize enough how outstanding Valerie Saffar is - we feel very lucky to have her! As a family, all 3 of us (my Dad the patient, my Mom, and myself the daughter) all felt very good and very positive from our Home Health visit today with Valerie Saffar.

Disclosures

Valerie Saffar, APRN 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. To learn more about our Disclosure and Professional Integrity Policy, and the conflict of interest policies of our joint affiliate survey partners, please go to our Office for Regulatory Affairs Policies page.
