A gerontology fellow started my visit ahead of Dr. Lindquist. However, I felt she listened to everything I said. And, when I started sharing about my losses over the past couple of months, and last 7 years, she allowed me to talk and cry, as the tears did come. I was amazed that she gave me to time to ‘tell my story' and grieve my recent loss. I received the orders that I needed, with one yet to come as EPIC caused snags in allowing the provider to create the order! I was pleased to hear about the department as led by Dr. Lindquist. Since she is only in the clinic on Wednesday, I will have access to other MDs in the department, especially one that comes to my senior building on the North side. I am glad to be established with fine providers as I indeed enter my ‘gero' years!

I met Dr. Lindquist when I was a patient at a rehab facility after hip replacement. I found her to be very smart, nonjudgmental, and extremely easy talk to. I chose her to be my doctor the first time I saw her especially when I found out she was from Northwestern--all my doctors are there. I have recommended her to one of my friends (who is kind of \doctor shy\") and I think she will like her very much."

Disclosures

Lee A. Lindquist, MD, MPH 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.
