No empathy shown. He had no idea what could be wrong with my foot and no advice for care other than a foot pad and stiff shoe. I have tingling which means it could be nerve related. Terrible bedside manner.

Dr Senall is a great doctor. I had him perform 2 other foot surgeries and I am very happy with his work. I would recommend him to any one that is in need of foot surgery. Also, I appreciate that he was able to reschedule me to an earlier time for surgery. The nurse called the day before and told me I was to come in at 2pm for surgery. I was concerned about the late time and not being able to eat because I have acid reflux and I would be all messed up. Dr Senall changed the schedule and I arrived for a 7am surgery. I was so relieved and appreciative that he was able to help me out. Thanks so much.

At this point i am 2 weeks post-op, and I've spoken with Senall really just once at the initial appointment, then briefly before surgery. I don't really care about bedside manner and all that for my situation. But so far as I can tell, he did a fine job repairing my achilles.

My son was referred to a specialist (Jeffrey A. Senall) because of an ongoing foot issue. Unfortunately, all I was told to keep doing what we’ve already been doing and “maybe” the pain will go away. Regarding custom-made insoles Dr. Senall said they “most likely” will not be covered by the insurance, and are “too expensive” ! He juts made the decision for me, that I can’t afford insoles for my child. We were not only disregarded, but also humiliated!

Essentially dismissed everything, even though I have a diagnosis. Didn't look at my chart to know that I have a systemic connective tissue disorder. Suggested doing things that will hurt me due to my disorder (like getting a steroid shot, and not wearing any type of brace at all). Verbally responded like he was listening but then essentially ignored everything I said. And said to come back if I start having symptoms of what I was diagnosed with. Which I do. Which is why I was there in the first place.

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.
