She was willing to see my son when no one else could fit him into schedule. Then she set up his follow up with another doctor since she would be leaving for maternity leave. She went above and beyond given she was in the office in her final week before leave. I appreciated the care and kindness she put into casting my son’s arm following his break.

She has an excellent bedside manner. Explains your health situation from all angles and helps you decide what is the future of your injury. She is so kind, caring and patient. I never felt rushed, let you ask lots of questions.

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.
