Twice on last 5 years, I have had seemingly mild symptoms that she pursued follow up testing on and 8n doing so, saved my life. She ordered a 3D mammogram after my physical exam was normal but I mentioned occasional pain in left breast. Stage 2 breast cancer found. This summer, I said I was winded while walking on vacation and she had be take an EKG that showed a left bundle branch blockage which led to further testing indicating I have heart failure. I believe most other doctors would not have heard/payed attention to my minor complaints that had to do with life threatening diseases. She is a special doctor.

Didn't listen, went in because I feel like total crap and she didn't order comprehensive lab work, thyroid labs, iron labs, or anything related to my symptoms. Referred me for a skin cancer screening which I told her twice I already had done. Referred me for a sleep medicine consult to address restless legs wven though that is a symptom of iron deficiency. I can't even get an appt for that sleep consult for 2 months. So for at least 2 months I have to figure out how to function feeling like absolute crap with no other recommendations or guidance? Terrible care.

Disclosures

Madeline C. Kwiatkowski, DO 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.
