Dr. Khan has to be the best physician I have ever had! Not only is he an excellent surgeon but he really cares about his patients. He took the time to thoroughly explain my condition and what to expect during and after my surgery and answered any questions I may have had. He is easily accessible and quickly responds for any concern I may have. He is very patient and takes the time to listen to all of my concerns. The reality of having a brain tumor and needing surgery was pretty overwhelming but Dr. Khan and his team made sure this experience went as smoothly as possible. I know that I have had the best care that I could have asked for and I honestly wouldn't trust my brain to any other surgeon.

Disclosures

Osaama H. Khan, 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.
