Dr. Guitart is an excellent CTCL dr, he does research for CTCL & Cutaneous Lymphoma Foundation, Dermatology students are required to spend 6 weeks learning about this CTCL & he works them to help them recognize this very rare disease. He is very concerned about my general health in addition to this disease I have & 2 variants- follicular mycosis fungoides & large cell. He did a genetic study of my recent biopsy & he brought the results to discuss with me.

He is knowledgeable, very patient oriented, best in his CTCL derm & derm pathology anywhere. Because of the rarity of CTCL, he is still able to find a solution to any problem that comes up & continues to try something else if it's not working. He takes as much time is needed at each visit, listening to problems that I had since the last visit & answering any questions. He is available to call if there are new symptoms & he will have me come in the next Tuesday. He is personable.

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.
