Dr. Clements is just the best! I have never had a doctor like her. Dr. Clements not only takes the time to carefully listen, she knows how to treat her patient with great care. She knows how to get things done. She also is very intuitive.

Dr. Clements is a great listener and very thorough. I really appreciate her approach of trying conservative treatments that are doable and manageable. She takes the time to go over all of my questions and I don’t feel rushed at all during a visit. Overall I felt better after my appointment and more assured of my health.

Dr. Clemments is a very conscientious and caring professional and is easy to work with. She answers all questions thoroughly and uses the time efficiently without making the patient feel rushed. She understands what is required for procedures and makes sure all bases are covered. I would recommend her without any reservations.

In my 75 years, Dr. Clements is by far the best doctor that I have ever had. She is an extraordinary listener and anticipates my questions. She takes her time with me and I feel so comfortable that we can often laugh during my exam. I trust her competence.

Dr. Clements is always down to earth and takes enough time with me. I believe she wants what is best for me and does not dictate to me. She doesn't load me up with expensive drugs as a former doctor did even when they were not appropriate.

Great bedside care! Dr. Clements takes the time to listen and ask me what questions I have. Her staff also speaks very highly of her which is another reflection of how she cares for all. Additionally, she is very knowledgeable and trustworthy.

Dr. Clements is an excellent doctor. She is intuitive. She seems to know exactly what I am thinking and phrases information in a clear, kind, yet direct way. She is very approachable. I never am uncomfortable asking any questions. She lets me know the reasons for various tests, but is not overly aggressive. My only regret is that I wish I had found her earlier in my life.

Dr. Clements is the best doctor my family has ever had. She is so knowledgeable and solution-oriented and is incredibly compassionate and understanding. I completely trust her and love that she always includes my input in decisions about my health.

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.
