Dr. Goldman is no-nonsense, calm, and confident. She is straight-forward and the way she goes through options is sound and informed. She is positive without being overly, artificially enthusiastic, and is straight-forward without being cold and unapproachable. Dr. Goldman has been very patient with my husband and I, and does a great job answering all of our questions which makes us feel stable in each step as we move forward. Would certainly recommend NWM and Dr. Goldman.

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.
