Dr. Nagle in his examination and explanation of the surgical procedure was thorough and anticipated questions with care and empathy. After surgery, he was extremely helpful and caring in explaining how the procedure was completed and the prognosis going forward. In all interactions, Dr. Nagle emulated the care expected at a world-class medical facility.

Dr. Nagle is outstanding! He built great rapport from the first meeting through the post-op follow-up. He took the time to understand my issue, how it was affecting my lifestyle, and why it was important to me and he instilled confidence throughout the experience. Otherwise, the results speak for themselves; I was mobile within 24 hours, discomfort for a couple days, but 2 weeks out I'm completely pain free and on my way to resuming normal activities...just like Dr. Nagle said I would be. I hope I never have this issue again, but if I do, Dr. Nagle would be my first call and he's the Dr. I would recommend to family and friends.

Dr Nagle provided an easy to understand diagnosis and thorough expectations for the entire surgical process. This approach set me at ease for the surgery and recovery which went exactly as he described. Very happy with the results!

I have confidence in Dr. Nagle’s skill. More complete information about the procedure would have improved care, specifically regarding the recovery process and prophylactic neurectomy. His surgical report seemed perfunctory and perhaps incomplete. My incision was much longer than indicated in the report.

I had a inguinal hernia. Dr Nagle provided a comprehensive examination, diagnoses, and treatment strategy. Having complete and accurate information is important when you are faced with a decision to have surgery. Dr Nagle and his team were instrumental in giving me the confidence to make that decision. I am currently recovering from surgery and very happy with the decision I made.

I think he underestimated how much pain I would have after surgery, so I only got Tylenol and Motrin. There are stronger NSAIDs, and I would have appreciated more pain relief. At least the anesthesiologist stepped-up and gave me toradol through my IV in recovery.

Really impressed by Dr Nagle. Referred by Dr Wilson Hartz III, also an amazing guy and terrific surgeon. Dr Nagle put me at ease. Dr Hartz retired and while I was extremely disappointed to hear that, his opinion of Dr Nagle and my time spent with Dr Nagle assure me he will do a great job repairing my hernia. Very confident and personable. To know he did medical missions to Guatemala with Dr Hartz sealed it for me. I’d definitely recommend anyone to Dr Nagle for hernia repair.

After the initial consultation with Dr Nagle I felt confident in his ability to complete a successful surgery. He was very caring ,cordial and professional. I'm very happy with the outcome and the appearance of the scar post surgery.

Dr Nagle has excellent bed side manner. He was very friendly and respectable with his treatment. He so far has been the best doctor that I have interacted with for my health care. He made me feel comfortable with being there and with explaining what my best treatment option is.

Having never undergone abdominal surgery, Dr. Nagle's approach put me at ease and my surgery went seamlessly. He was able to see that I am not the type of person to "take it easy" during my recovery and encouraged me in a reassuring, upbeat way to do so.

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.
