He did not, in my opinion, tried to really get to know me. It appears he had a set script vs responding organically to what he was hearing.

Although due to his accent, at times I would asked him to repeat things he has said, the consultation was good. He and I made the connection regarding treatments for my conditions. I look forward to our next meeting.

This was my first time seeing Dr. Bashir .not only did i wait 40 mins after my appoiment but it was a 2 dn half hours sitting in his office . I was switched from mona lal to him last month .. he was not only rude and just rushing he would not listen to anything I wanted to tell him.. he was falling asleep while typing on the computer. Again we all get tired I get it but in my 15 years of going to a Psychiatrist I have never seen or been treated like that .he told me being my new doctor I need to figure out another doctor because he don't prescribe one of my main medication that I cannot be without 😢 so I started panicking and just asked what am I supposed to do he said he's going to call his partner Dr lal who sent me over to him because they are in the same office and ask her why she sent me to him . I'm so lost and upset. The lady before me walked out and I heard her son say they are switching doctors so I guess im.not the only one . That was not right at all ..

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.
