While she was not very warm, she listened, asked questions and explained things very thoroughly. She also made sure my questions were answered. It is rare that I would rate highly a physician who is not personable at all. It would have been nice, though, if she would have been a bit more engaged on a personal level.

I have ALS and wanted to be in the HEALEY Platform Trial. Dr. Driss explained during my initial visit that as my disease progressed, I might have difficulty getting to Chicago for follow up visits. While this was a disappointment to me, she said she would locate a HEALEY site closer to my home. In about an hour, she called me back and said she had been in contact with the University of Kentucky and they would be happy to have me as a patient. After that call, I had an emotional cry because I felt that she totally cared about me and wanted to be sure that I had access to the HEALEY program. She gave me hope and that it is rare feeling when you have a terminal illness like ALS. I will forever be grateful for her efforts to help me.

I wanted to like Dr. Ajroud-Driss, but unfortunately, my experience with her and her fellow wasn't particularly good. What stood out to me the most about this visit was what a poor job both of them did listening and how not thorough they were being. This didn't give me confidence in them, or their ability to help me.
