Everything Dr [] and Nurse Dan said about Dr Patel was true - she was fantastic. She listened, was interested in what I was saying, and clearly wanted to find solutions. I had gotten some sad news while waiting for her to come in my room and she was genuinely kind and caring toward me about that. This is exemplary medicine — seeing the whole person even when it has nothing to do with the specialty or medical problem at hand.

Disclosures

Riddhi M. Patel, 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.
