I have only seen him a couple of times, but thus far, Dr. Neely has been excellent. I'm confident I'm in good hands with him, and he has been very open to addressing any concerns or requests I have--just recently I asked him to look into something further on a blood test that came back, and he got to it right away. That level of responsiveness is much appreciated!

He immediately generates a feeling of caring and is not a know-it-all but will let his patient know that we are trying something when that is what he is doing. This instills confidence and makes one feel we are working as a team. He listens well even as he is entering his notes in MyChart. Not something I could easily do!

Been with Dr. Neely about 17yrs. I like the care he gives and his willingness to answer any question that I may have. He also makes sure I’m up to date on vaccines. During the height of Covid-19, he sent a weekly email about how to take care of yourself. I really appreciated that. He is also always friendly and patient.

Disclosures

David B. Neely, 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.
