A thorough exam was not completed. He looked at the throat only. We reported to him and the MA that the baby was tugging on ears. He dismissed it as tonsil related without checking. When this was brought to his attention for a follow up, his response is that he didn’t recall us mentioning an ear problem. This was an ear, nose, and throat office. At minimum, the ears, nose, and throat should be checked. Failure to do so resulted in a separate visit back to the primary care the next day. She did not diagnose a definite ear infection buT had suspension of swimmer’s ear and called the next day proposing an ear antibiotic for treatment. He was however very thorough in describing the rationale for surgery for enlarged tonsils.

Disclosures

Patrick Murphy, PA-C 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.
