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.

Only thing that's a bit weird during baby/childs exams is she routinely checks privates then child's mouth. This has been done every visit so it's just her routine - probably doesn't think twice about it. In my opinion the privates should be checked last.

Disclosures

Lisa B. Messinger, 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. 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.
