We love Dr. Widmer... she is kind, caring, compassionate and knowledgeable. She always takes all the time needed and never rushes patients out. She stays on schedule regularly and she is amazing with babies and children. She is thorough and always makes sure you leave rest assured. Highly recommend HER and when I do it's with a big warning of the sacrifices associated with her practice being part of NM and your extremely unfortunate policies. Patients deserve to have access to the Dr's offices directly and comfort in familiarity - you strip that away with call centers and rotating staff. Which is a huge deal especially in pediatrics.

Disclosures

Linda C. Widmer, 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.
