Not likely. He does his job but I wouldn’t say I felt much interest in my case and even less empathy. I felt I had more questions but no time to ask them. My last visit felt rushed and I was in a lot pain. He had a very programmed response to my concerns. He did his job but I felt I was a number and that’s an awful feeling. I left feeling like I had high hopes for a treatment plan but I walked away feeling disappointed.

I have seen Dr. Davis for many years and he is outstanding. He is consistently on time, treats his patients with respect (despite my silly questions) and never rushes me. When he administers shots for pain, he always takes special measures to ensure my pain is minimal by checking in during the procedure and making adjustments. I would highly recommend Dr. Davis for Orthopaedic care at NM-LFH. Thank you very much for your extraordinary care, Dr. Davis!

I've seen Dr. Davis several times, and my last visit was the only time I have ever felt uncomfortable. Shots in the knees are never pleasant, but this time I really felt some pain with one and automatically said something. When he was done, he just said the way out is that way and left me in the room on the table with one pant leg up. I felt like he was disgusted with me.

Dr. Davis is a brilliant physician, kind and compassionate. He makes a concerted effort to get to know his patients on a personal level, which makes his patients feel, at ease. He shares excellent referrals, if/when he is not a specialist in a specific orthopedic area. I never feel rushed with Dr. Davis, when I ask him several questions during my visits. He truly cares about his patients--certainly a role model for other ortho physicians at LFH!!

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.

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.
