I have seen Dr. Eytan for many years now. Like [ ], the receptionist/scheduler, he is so very caring, kind & comforting. When I saw him on the 10th, I was in an extreme amount of pain. I knew I was in good hands & Dr. Eytan just being himself help me so very much. What a great man! Again, I feel so very lucky to be in his care!!!!!

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.

Patients are encouraged to discuss these disclosures with their physician as well as to inquire as to how these relationships are overseen by Feinberg.
