He listens and includes me in a plan moving forward. He never makes me feel judged about my weight or what heart issues I might have. Even though I know how busy he is, I never feel rushed. I feel his humanity and I’m grateful for that.

First impressions are so important and he did not disappoint. He was kind and thorough, gave us a chance to speak freely, and constantly asked if we had any questions. I left the appointment with definitive information and a clear understand of my treatment plan.

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.
