She takes the time to review all of records and consult with my Primary Care Physician to complete the whole picture about my health, before suggesting next step. Dr Ferreira does a very good job to keep me focused, even when I leave the path for a minute. I smile loudly because I greatly appreciate her time and experience. Dr Ferreira is a major part of my Team [ ]!!!

Dr Ferreira was so attentive personable and thoughtful. She took her time listened to my concerns and reassured me rather than being dismissive which some physicians unfortunately convey. I felt so good after my visit and I totally trust her which is so important. I appreciate how personable she is while maintaining professional friendly demeanor. Wonderful balance!!!!!

As I said above Dr.F. was truly outstanding. She took the time to get a thorough history from me and from my records, for example noting that the cervical cancer I had would not make colon cancer any more likely although endometrial cancer will do so. She noted that I only had one polyp one time, and taking all of that into account she said the choice of a colonoscopy, weighing the possible good and the possible harms, what's up to me. I felt as if we were a team, and I so appreciated her expertise and careful approach. She is also accessible and charming personally.

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.

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.
