She took the time to answer all of my questions. I felt I could ask her anything. I very much appreciated the way she provided information. I felt I had a range of options to consider and was well informed about the pros and cons of each. She did an outstanding job of listening to me which made me feel comfortable from the get go. And she was very gentle with me, something other ob/gyns have not been. I have been searching for a new ob/gyn for some time. I consider myself fortune indeed to have found Dr Minaya. I will continue care under her.

Disclosures

Ismely F. Minaya, 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. To learn more about our Disclosure and Professional Integrity Policy, and the conflict of interest policies of our joint affiliate survey partners, please go to our Office for Regulatory Affairs Policies page.
