Today was a perfect example. We called and made the appointment feeling that my mom might need the dosage of her medicine increased. Both Dr. Simuni and the other doctor from her practice (forgot his name...ugh) spent a considerable amount of time evaluating my mom. In the end they both agreed that upping my mom‘s dosage would not gain the benefits we were looking for and open the opportunity for some negative side effects to increase. We are her patients for her expertise and appreciated her being completely honest with us and explaining why the increased dosage would not be beneficial.

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.
