I had a very negative experience with Dr. Tsay. Before even examining me or asking me why I was there, she told me that it was highly unlikely that a person my age would have any heart conditions. She continued to mention my age after every symptom I listed, implying that just because I looked healthy and was young that there was nothing wrong with me. I had explained to her many times that I was just here because my doctor referred me to a cardiologist to get tested for POTS and that I was aware that POTS is not a heart condition, but she continued to tell me that POTS is not a heart condition even though I made it very clear I was aware of that. It seemed like she made a bias about me because of my age and the way that I looked. She made me feel like I was stupid for being there and that I was uninformed. It wasn’t until I proved that I had knowledge of this condition that she stopped the condescending comments. I was extremely upset after the appointment and very unhappy with my experience.

Disclosures

Julie Lynn Tsay, 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.
