His professional demeanor, patience and openness gives me reason to trust his judgement. I really wanted to have the surgery at this time, as recommended by Dr. Wayne, but work demands make this very difficult. I hope that my requested delay doesn't complicate matters. I can't say that I'm looking forward to this surgery next February, but with Dr. Wayne's involvement at least I'll have some peace of mind until then.

Dr Wayne is very professional, as well as warm and caring. His connection with the Sarcoma Board was an added bonus. He fully explains the illness and plan of action. He allows for time for the patient and family member to ask questions. I felt very confident being under his care.

Dr Wayne clearly knows what he's doing, but he always seems to be in a hurry and I end up feeling like I'm bothering him or that I'm a waste of his time. I don't know if he actually cares about me, but he seems to have done a great job operating on me and I'm healing well. I would end up recommending him to someone, but with the caveat that they shouldn't expect him to be very present or have any bedside manner.

My oncologist recommended Dr. Wayne as did my dermatologist. Dr. Wayne has a stellar reputation. I feel very lucky to be in his care. Dr. Wayne was very thorough in explaining the process I will undergo in Surgery and took time with me and was very kind. I feel very good about being in his hands.

Dr. Wayne has proven he is one of the best in his field. His knowledge, expertise and compassionate nature make him an excellent doctor and I am blessed to have him as a part of my care team. Thank you.

Too busy to meet with patients. I feel like a part in a factory to be serviced rather than a human being who is going through the single most traumatic experience in my life.

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.
