Dr. Urday focused on me and on explaining issues I was having. He had a plan and was patient with my questions and gave complete explanations. On my first visit with him he had medical students with him (assistants?) and although that visit was also very good, I felt not as connected with him on a personal basis. This time was a bit different and I appreciated the focus on me. He showed compassion and concern and gave some additional advice on a better diet - not to lose weight, but to eat better, make better food choices. All visits were more than satisfactory.

This was the first major health issue I have had and I was incredibly impressed by the care and service I received from NW in general and Neurology specifically. Since the care was lackluster locally, my wife insisted that we travel downtown to NW. Once I was admitted through ER, I received expert care. They ruled an issue out and moved in another team until they determined the cause of my symptoms. I have a great deal of respect for the NW system.

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.
