Dr. Memmel was so patient and detailed with her explanations during my consultation. I appreciate everything she did to clarify what I needed to know. She answered all my questions clearly and with compassion, especially since she knew this was the first time I will be experiencing breast cancer surgery. She helped me to feel safe and confident for the upcoming procedure.

She was so professional, kind and patient. She explained everything very clearly and answered all my questions. And she followed up and did what she was said — sent a prescription and had me schedule a mammogram through the app. Very impressed and it was well worth me driving out from the city.

Disclosures

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.
