I do like Dr. Wolfe, she’s wonderful. I feel very secure with her recommendations. I appreciate how she explains incredibly well my X-rays and ct scans. Also she’s very good about explaining various inhalers, their differences and how to use. I also appreciate the samples as the inhalers are quite expensive and it definitely helps to try it and see how it works for me before ordering. I feel very comfortable with her and her staff is friendly and efficient.

I feel like Dr. Wolfe genuinely cares about my health. She goes the extra mile to offer the most accurate information; i.e., she consulted additional NW doctors to offer a conclusive diagnosis regarding my pulmonary care. I appreciate her willingness and ability to relay/explain things to me. She is patient in answering questions and does so without hurrying. She's an excellent doctor.

Disclosures

Alexis Wolfe, 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.
