Dr. Bevan routinely takes the time to listen, making direct eye contact and remains engaged until I finish my thought(s). I am never left with questions, being cut off, or walked out on without being properly heard and addressed. Any concerns that warrant explanation are delivered in a clear and concise manner. Her persistent attention to detail and precision have resulted in successful treatment plans which allow me to live the life I need to be healthy and feel fulfilled. I am very well cared for and truly trust her with my medical care.

I hv had MS for 20 yrs. There has been a lot of ups and downs, multiple medications, some working, some not. Dr. Bevan listens to you. It’s no doubt that you see a broader world of MS, the disease. But I hv lived with MS in my body for 20 years. I’m the leading specialist of that! I really trust Dr. Bevan. She listens to you, explains her methodology, tells you why some factors may lead to change while other factors would cause things to remain on course. After we talk, I feel confident in the care plan she has made and the direct of treatment.

I came back to NW MS center after a leaving. I was gone for several years. I had a huge flare up and a PTherapist at Shirley Ryan gave me Dr. Bevans name. They said, just meet her, I think youll like her. I was skeptical. As an MS patient for 20 yrs, Ive seen a lot of neurologists. Neurologists are known for their bedside manner. I had been frustrated for years interviewing doctors from Rush, NorthShore and various private practices. Dr. Bevan is the best!!! She is compassionate and listens to you. I would not be at Northwestern without her.

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.
