Dr. Michael Ziffra is an amazing leader, mentor, and helper for myself. As a former Division 1 gymnast, I’ve seen a Psychologist for 7 years, and Dr. Ziffra has made an amazing positive impact on my life. He listens well, and we have great dialogue. The office is always nice and keeps me up to date.

Dr. Ziffra made me feel like he genuinely cares about getting me to feeling normal and on the right medications to get me there. He also listens about my life problems dealing with mental health and not just medication talk.

Goes over everything and provides details on why and how he came up with my treatment plan. I never feel like I'm in a world of the unknown. He explains things in simple terms & make sure you understand

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.
