Dr. Kadow has been great from the start. She’s calm, very knowledgeable and thorough. She explained the process every step of the way. She really listened and took my concerns seriously. I was sure that I broke my elbow along with my wrist. So she ordered additional X-rays and even double checked before surgery to make nothing was missed. And at the post surgery appointment she remembered and asked about my elbow.

I appreciated the care I received by Dr Kato. My case was not very involved, a slight break in my wrist. She was kind, engaged, respectful and professional. The PT that did my cast was also very good. I am definitely pleased with the care I received. Because this case was not so involved, I am giving an 8. If I had more extensive needs, I would be able to provide a better/more complete recommendation.

Disclosures

Tiffany Kadow, 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.
