Dr. Bruce L. Henschen is the most outstanding MD. I have been his patient for many years and I share my time between Chicago, Paris and Berlin. I had the opportunity of seeking medical help in these towns and I can rank Dr. Bruce L. Henschen as the best without any hesitation. He listens carefully to my description of my symptoms, explains them to me technically and when needed refers me to his specialist colleagues. He answers my questions quickly, returns my calls and helps me cope with the diagnosis. I often go to appointments where I meet him with two of his students and I appreciate the educational approach as a scientific professor.

Disclosures

Bruce L. Henschen, 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.
