Doctor Soares took the time to listen to my concerns and act STAT to ensure they were put to rest. He taught me the true (not cliche) meaning of STAT. In less than 1 hour, with the quick assist of the Lab and Imaging departments at Kishwauke Hospital, I went from concerned that my UTI was still lingering and 2 kidney stones causing very bloody urine discharge to conclusively verifying all was OK. As I waited for the test results at Kish a warm, friendly and considerate man handed me a cell phone saying my doctor was on the phone. I was in the ladies waiting room and he discreetly waited in the hall. Dr. Spares was on the phone? Too incredible! Sure doctors talk to patients on Tele-visits but test results made all the women in the room strain to hear me. The kidney stones are still small enough to pass naturally and not doing actual damage to my kidney still and put me on a week more of the antibiotic. He will speak to me more this coming week at our office visit. The truly mind blowing thing is that I'm a new patient to him yet he treats all patients with the same professional, compassionate, thorough, experienced surgeon and great bedside manner. He is a keeper the ladies were chatting asking me (after I hung up) who was this doctor, what specialty was he in and what his name is. Seems everybody wants a doctor like mine. Including me!

He's a great doctor, I just wish ALL of the kidney stones were removed. I've gotten kidney stones in the past and been told they grow bigger, can cause an infection and pain/discomfort. It would be a nice piece of mind having them all removed.

Extremely knowledgeable, caring, and professional. Gave very thorough explanation of what was going to happen and what to expect after surgery. Was a wonderful experience and I felt completely comfortable in his care.

I feel like he takes the appropriate response to what is revealed in medical test. does not over respond but also takes things seriously. He takes the time to explain why he is doing or not doing certain things.

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.
