She really does listen, and give great suggestions and feedback. She does not try to make you feel dumb when you have questions that might be, I appreciate all of her insight and positive attitude as well as friendliness she has with my children.

Unfortunately I am giving this low rating because the doctor should be triple checking that all of the vaccines listed on vaccine records are accurate and given when they are supposed to be given. Obviously the “system” cannot be trusted. She should know what vaccines should or should not be given at each well visit and should not rely on the computer system alone.

I really appreciated her answering questions and concerns I had first before our exam. She definitely listened, and was attentive which my old pediatrician was not. She was thorough, made the appointment fun for my son and I really appreciated all the time she spent.

Dr Messinger is very nice and caring. However, every time we come in, we end up waiting at least 30 min passed our appointment time. After waiting that long, we were told something that could have been done through the phone.

Amazing physician who always has a smile on her face. Even though they were 40 minutes behind on appointments today she still took her time to listen to my needs and I did not feel rushed at all. Very caring and thorough doctor.

Dr. Messinger is fantastic! She's extremely nice and empathetic, and probably the only doctor I'd trust wholeheartedly. She's not afraid to admit if she doesn't know something, and will give great recommendations. I'm sad I'll be turning 21 next October, and will no longer be able to have her as my doctor, but I trust she'll help find me a good primary care doctor to switch over to.

Dr. Messingwr always address all my questions during office visit! Even after when I forget to ask something and ask it via mychart. At our appointment in 8/17 I asked about an auto-immune disease I have and if it would affect Natalie and before I left the room she came in with my after visit summary and addressed the question and put my mind at ease with her response!

She came highly recommended from another pediatrician, so that in itself speaks volumes. My personal experience with Dr. Messinger confirmed the recommendation, very knowledgeable and and an excellent disposition towards the care of my son.

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.
