He was so interested and caring. Dr. El Muayed was so careful to understand everything about my history and where I am in diabetes care at this time. He is also looking to my future, which at 71, I very much appreciate. He is so knowledgeable and kind.

Dr. Muayed is very very caring, professional and knowledgeable. I was unable to receive direct calls and email responses and were receiving only from the nursing staff. He immediately corrected at my last telehealth call and we are connected now.

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.
