Dr. Degesys, was on time. Extremely friendly. Explained my health condition completely. Made recommendations to better help my health conditions. I will def keep Dr. Degesys as my cardiology Dr. And if possible will recommend anyone who needs to see a cardiology Dr to her in a heartbeat.

She took her time, explained my issues and did change my medication as I was having fatigue and was not feeling my normal self. I did not feel that she rushed through my appointment. The Dr explained why I was having problems. The Dr. also is having me monitor my blood pressure and asked me to call her if my blood pressure falls below and or above certain levels.

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.
