She listened to what I wanted and what my concerns were. Then, she did an exam and explained her recommended care plan, ensuring I agreed these were the best next steps, and that I understood what to expect going forward. Plus, she was down to earth and personable.

The doctor was thorough, listened, and acknowledge how my symptoms were negatively affecting my life. I was also provided referrals to specialists she knows who will be able to properly diagnose and treat my symptoms.

I felt like Dr. Hwang cared about me and trusted me to speak about my own body. She was honest about what she knew and what she didn’t and she also wove consent practices throughout the visit. I also love that she introduced herself by saying “my pronouns are she/her, what do you use?”

I've been dealing with a chronic pain condition for years, and Dr. Hwang has been one of the best doctors I've seen for helping me to manage it. She listens very well to my concerns, and is never dismissive of my pain (which has been incredibly hard to find!).

Dr. Hwang is amazing!! Not only is she really nice and explains everything in simple terms for you to understand, but she's a doctor who actually cares about her patients. She has squeezed me into her schedule not once, but twice due to different circumstances. I am so thankful I found her to treat me!

Dr. Hwang was amazing. She listened to my problems, asked questions that brought further discussion, and asked me if I had any questions for her. I love when doctor's actually give you time to ask questions. She also provided me a plan for tackling my problem and recovering.

She was very kind and listened well. Took everything in and then spoke back in great detail so that I completely understood everything and all options available. She was not pushy and really left everything up to what I wanted to do with what she thought was best! Very happy to have seen her!
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.
