Kathleen is an amazing lady. She was so kind and helpful. She took the time to explain my mother's sugar readings and how long and fast acting insulin works. The knowledge she gave us was extremely helpful. Wish all doctors took the time and care she did for us at our last appointment and today's appointment.

went for one reason, to get my license paper work filed out and was told straight up no by someone who has never seen me and didn’t even ask my actual doctor if that was what he wanted just decided after a 30 min conversation and not even talking to my doctor that she can just take away a right that i need for getting to work getting my insulin from the pharmacy and that i’m not a “good enough” diabetic to have a basic human right of driving my car maybe talk to my doctor that’s know me for years. she also tried to dive me ANOTHER device after i clearly stated i just want the pump and transmitter i have to work and i don’t wasn’t another device stuck on me or another needle inside of me she told me for straight up 10 min ab about this new glucometer update and me thinking that she was talking about an actual glucometer and not the freestyle thing which is so stupid because why would i wear that if i have the CGM that could hook up to my pump like just help me fix that so i don’t have to wear another needle in my arm i just think it’s frustrating and just plain annoying that someone who doesn’t know anything about my history and didn’t even know i switched pumps a year ago can just say oh no that thing that you so desperately need from us so you can function like a normal human again we’re gonna hold that over you until you do exactly as we say because we control your life now and want to know about everything you eat every time you eat and everything you do even though she doesn’t even know me at all

Disclosures

Kathleen A. Malinis, APRN 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. To learn more about our Disclosure and Professional Integrity Policy, and the conflict of interest policies of our joint affiliate survey partners, please go to our Office for Regulatory Affairs Policies page.
