Dr. Monahan is the an amazing surgeon and physician. She is the patient and I never feel like she has her hand on the door. She will talk to make until I am comfortable with her diagnosis and our next steps. I feel like I could call her at any time, and she has encouraged me to do so. Her compassion is unwavering and she makes me condition easy to bear. Together the PA and Dr. M are a great team. I have the utmost confidence in both of them and am so glad that they are the team taking care of me. They are an asset to Northwestern Medical.
