On the other hand, the doctor's notes are very good. But he cites a medical term in his notes that he never used when I saw him at the office. I only read his notes a couple of days after my visit. By that time, I had already spent a great deal of time doing my own research. Ultimately, I think I agree with his diagnosis, but his 'explanation' at the office was confusing and basically inadequate. It would really help if doctors used the correct medical terminology while face to face with the patient, not only in their notes.

Dr. Duyka was concise, informative, and pleasant to talk to. I believe that my throat surgery was carried out with the utmost care and was done with as much expertise as possible. If I was to ever have ENT issues again (or talk to someone who has ENT isssues), Dr. Duyka would be on the top of my list.

Northwestern hospital facilities State of the art. They are exceptionally clean comfortable warm and inviting. Even with the situation of the pandemic they have made it so that you are still taken care of properly in a safe comfortable manner. Hands down northwestern has provided the best healthcare team and Dr. Duyka is a part of the team, He’s very pleasant and friendly. From the time he walked through the door and introduced himself he put me at ease with my visit. He’s talk to me and explained the situation and allowed me to ask any and all questions. Dr Duyka has a calming effect. Being very nervous and anxious about the visit he made me feel better and a little easier after explaining test results and procedures.The visit was not rushed, it was very thorough. He said please reach out to me you have any other questions. Dr Duyka is amazing!!!!!

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.
