Medically, Dr. Aggarwal diagnosed a critical issue that had caused hospitalization, one missed by every other doctor prior to hospitalization and during hospitalization. Which caused transfer from another clinic to one where he works. Personally, Dr. Aggarwal is a very caring doctor.

Dr. Aggarwal caught an issue the prior nephrologist didn’t, and is the reason for me switchingg nephrologist and Clinic. His concern comes through. He cares about his end-stage patients; he doesn’t treat them as people who are going to disappear in a relatively short period of time.

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.
