He’s great. Attentive; kind; and enjoys sharing/educating his patients on the mechanisms of the healing process.

Excellent care by Dr. Wiedrich. He has a kind and supportive bedside manner. He performed a careful assessment of my progress since wearing a splint for the prescribed duration and was even kind enough to address an additional issue with my thumb even though we were following up on my finger injury.

Disclosures

Thomas A. Wiedrich, 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.
