Dr. Nierzwicki is excellent. After first experiencing tachycardia over 10 years ago, I was wrongly diagnosed by another doctor in a different state. For years I really didn’t know what was wrong with me, but thanks to the efforts and insights of both my primary care provider and Dr. Nierzwicki, I finally have an answer and have begun feeling better. Really grateful! I also appreciate Dr. Nierzwicki’s clear explanation of my condition, the way he actually listens when I detail how I’ve been feeling, and how he went above and beyond to try to find another specialist for me after he discovered there could be a genetic link to the circulatory issues I’ve presented with.

Disclosures

Robert S. Nierzwicki, 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. To learn more about our Disclosure and Professional Integrity Policy, and the conflict of interest policies of our joint affiliate survey partners, please go to our Office for Regulatory Affairs Policies page.
