As a new cardiac patient, Dr. Zaidi asked very specific questions to get a better understanding of my high blood pressure issues and how he may be able to help. He had reviewed previous lab work done at Northwestern McHenry ordered by my kidney doctor, to go along with the EKG test results and multiple blood pressure readings he had his nurse perform to assure me and my wife that my situation was manageable.

Disclosures

Asim R. Zaidi, 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.
