Dr. Russell, was very attentive and had discussed the preliminary finding of my initial examination prior to seeing and examining me herself. She concluded that the initial Exam and examination were in sync with the findings and advised me on things I could do to continue exercise, maintaining good health and what the self test would do to help her do a full evaluation of my lungs and heart condition. She also, inquired whether or not I had my flu shot, which I had already and offered suggestions on getting the Covid-19 virus prevention shot.

Disclosures

Susan R. Russell, 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.
