Dr. Churyla has seen me at least twice to answer my questions about the Maze procedure (I have A-fib). This has been a difficult decision for me due to the nature of the procedure. Dr, Churyla has answered my many questions with patience, and in a thorough matter.

His communication, his knowledge. He didn't just tell me what he knew, we tried to figured out a solution. A good solution for me. Which I know I'm not an easy case. I appreciate the time he took. Made me feel very comfortable with him, at ease. Thank you Doctor Andrei Churyla

Disclosures

Andrei Churyla, 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.
