In every way, Dr. Shetty is a truly great physician. He listens very carefully to all our concerns and asks insightful questions to make sure he understands the full extent of the problems. He has given us solutions to these problems through changes in medications and dosages that really worked to make our lives better. We have had several specialists in our journey with Parkinson's Disease, and Dr. Shetty is the most knowledgeable and most caring we have ever had.

Dr. Neil Shetty is an excellent doctor in the Neurology Department of Northwestern’s Feinberg Memorial Hospital (Lavin Pavilion) who took the time to help me to deal with the deleterious and annoying effects of my Parkinson’s disease. He seemed to ask me all of the right questions to come up with a comprehensive plan to try to stop the progression of the disease and to slow down the loss of dopamine to the brain. Most importantly he is a caring individual who seems to be willing to share the international research on this insidious illness.

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.
