Excellent doctor who is an expert in mycosis fungoitis (CTCL) & all medical students in dermatology at NW spend 6 weeks with him so that they recognize CTCL- Cutaneous T-Cell Lymphoma in their patients after their Doctorate in Dermatology. He does research & works with Cutaneous Lymphoma Foundation. He is always working on solutions to my problems & is a miracle worker. I am blessed to have him as my doctor.

He saved my life. After visiting 4 other dermatologists who tested everything including 120 skin patches, 4 different ointments, many biopsies, my arms and legs were full of lesions and very swollen; it was hard to walk. Dr. Guiitart spent 3 hours finding a care plan of a chemo pill, plus phototherapy and something to care for side effects of the pill. It has been a god send; there are only a few lesions now and I have energy.

Disclosures

Joan Guitart, 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.
