Dr. Pyka always explains and inquires if I have any questions or concerns. He is compassionate to my outside concerns - the stresses stemming from my 4 year old grandson’s brain tumor and chemo. Dr. Pyka realized my lack of exercise over the last 6 months is due to worry, stress and weariness. He was reassuring and encouraging and I left my appointment feeling I had been listened to and understood. That really helps to give me a renewed determination to take care of my health

I have been Dr. Pyka's patient for close to 40 years. He is extremely competent and has taken very good care of me for all those years, including a stroke. He has excellent bed side manners as well, which was most important to me. Anyone lucky enough to be his patient, is most fortunate indeed. Barbara Jones

Disclosures

Manfred J. Pyka, MD 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. To learn more about our Disclosure and Professional Integrity Policy, and the conflict of interest policies of our joint affiliate survey partners, please go to our Office for Regulatory Affairs Policies page.
