The first time I saw a Dr. Matthew she was very friendly and seemed very experienced. She told me all the things she was going to order, The last thing was a consult with a neurologist. I then told her I was seeing a neurologist in two days. So she said she would let him take care of everything. She ordered nothing. Now two days May not be a lot for a lot of people. But when someone is experiencing constant pain with no relief, two days is a very long time.

Disclosures

Vinita Mathew, 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.
