Dr. S is very compassionate and thorough in her care. She treats me with deep kindness and respect. Thanks to her thoughtful approach to investigating symptoms, I've received diagnoses more than once in the last few years that might have been missed or brushed off by other practitioners. She focuses on the fundamentals and the importance of good wellness habits. I trust her completely and am glad to have her as my primary care physician.

Disclosures

Susan M. Sheneman, 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.
