He is so very, very good to his patients. He is respectful and as I said brings his PA in when he is examining you. Also, a friend of mine went to see him 2 yrs ago, or maybe a little longer. Not only did he remember her, he remembered her name. Who does that?? Dr Shulman does. He almost made me cry because she is no longer alive and was my best friend and he remembered her. Really touched my heart. He is the best

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.
