Signing up for new primary care physician was made efficient and useful by this physician. I was impressed by how well he managed time, paperwork and all my medical problems on my first visit. I received information for preventing some of my health issues, as well as specialist referrals --within network—for my serious medical issues. It is too bad that internal medicine facilities do not provide doctors with dictation tools or recording devices in order to eliminate some of the administrative paperwork physicians are called on to perform. My new primary care physician has the computer typing skill of a legal secretary, as well as the knowledge and intelligence of an excellent medical professional.

Disclosures

Joel A. Wilsnack, 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.
