Dr. Cheng has great knowledge, great patience and compassion. She goes out of her way to recommend alternative support.She spends as much time as patient needs to ask questions, express concerns, etc.She is available \off hours\". I consider her a friend!"

I would not recommend Dr. Chang. I went to Dr. Cheng twice, once for an executive physical and once for an individual appointment. I think she is highly qualified physician but I question her judgment and her empathy, at least for me. If going to this fabulous program, I would see someone else.

I have a very high regard for the program. The credentials of the physicians are excellent as are the facilities. I have seen Dr. Derman and he is fabulous. And Dr. Mullen caught something off with my wife and ordered tests, which discovered cancer in stage 3, where if she hadn't discovered it we wouldn't be in the fabulous place we are now. We are grateful.

I've run questions on health issues by Dr. Cheng all days of the week and have always received a prompt response which I've found so critically important in putting my mind at ease. I had a vertigo attack while at work. This had never happened to me before. Dr. Cheng was on the phone to me assuring me to sit down quietly--that this would pass and that it likely wasn't a stroke or brain tumor, which is where one's mind goes in scary situation with which one has never dealt before. This put my mind at ease. And our quiet discussions regarding the efficacy of a gastric bypass procedure in the years leading up to my decision--a very important one---led me to conclude this was the right way to go. And it absolutely was! Dr. Cheng's insights into this help guide me to one of the most important and beneficial procedures in my life--one which has led to incredibly beneficial results. I give Dr. Cheng \top\" ratings across the board.

Cathy is amazing. It is simply her knowledge, curiosity and related readings which she shares and above all her seeming interest in me shown by caring and listening. Listening is a lost art among certain professional types.

Disclosures

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.
