Known him a long time. Possesses great skill, kindness, common sense and good humor. Informative with me and responds quickly to my concerns. I was able to focus on what I needed to pre-surgery and not do all the coordination myself. He leads an excellent team and I have always felt myself fortunate to be his patient, especially in my current situation.

Dr. Garb is my first male physician and I feel really fortunate I was able to get in for a visit by sheer chance. I have some anxieties about my health and I’m general, and Dr. Garb made it a priority to talk with me about those experiences and how I am doing presently as mental and reproductive health can be heavily influenced by each other. He was very validating and answered my questions without making me feel like I was being dramatic or dumb. Shout out to my MA as well! I missed her name but she was AMAZING and helped me schedule a follow up US before I even left.

Disclosures

Micah W. Garb, 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.
