He was very thorough in his examination, he Explained his thought process, and he was confident in his assessment, wanting to confirm it in three months time, which all seemed very reasonable to me.

Best CTCL Doctor who does research, teaches at Northwestern Medical School & all dematolology students spend 8 weeks with him to learn the signs of CTCL. Spends quality time with me looking at all the problem areas, looking at bloodwork & assessing what needs to be done next & answering my questions & telling me when to return & a reminder to call if there are new problems. Dr. Guitart was awarded the Dermapathologist of the Year 2020 for all of North America. He is amazing!!

Super doctor !! Always has ideas to take care of a problems as my disease progresses. Changes in medications & using genetic info to help finding alternate ideas, along with his great research skills & working Dr. Choi & Dr. Zhou who do research & oversee research projects with Cutaneous Lymphoma Foundation. He is kind & concerned about me & my total health.If I have a new problem- Dr. Guitart will see me on Tuesday & an appt will be scheduled even if no appts were available. He also changes appts to accommodate me if I am going to see the radiation oncologist so specific suggestions for what to radiate are included. Then the radiation visit will be a meeting plus a planning session.

He is great in his work and understanding. But, i would like someone to listen to my concerns too which doesn’t happen during my visit. I barely can see him for 5-6 mins which I wish was a bit longer to discuss anything

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.
