She was fantastic. She reassured this old man that he wasn't in danger of keeling over, at least not in the next hour or so, during which our conversation ranged from the heart, the home, the classroom, the Congress. It was one of the most invigorating doctor visits I have ever had. (Maybe she was just trying to get my heart racing! Success in that department!) Her professionalism was in evidence as she tried to assure me that when laymen read what doctors write (if they can even read it) they often misunderstand the language. What sounded dire and full of doom to me, words like "regurgative" and the plain but deceptive "gross," were not always words to die by. Dr. Kansal metaphorically took my hand and led me away from "dangerous" vocabulary!

Disclosures

Preeti Kansal, 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.
