Dr. Behl’s exam was thorough and efficient. I immediately felt that isolation of my underlying source of pain and resolution were top priority; he’s a great listener and very empathetic. Quick-witted, too…I genuinely laughed out loud at one point, which felt great since I was also experiencing pain. I’m confident that the step-wise plan laid out at my initial visit will result in diminished pain down my recovery path.

Dr Behl is remarkable and his advice (coupled with Dr. Dwyer) has been life changing. This does go back to about 6 months ago and the care I received with my left ankle. As for today, I had no idea what was wrong with my left knee. But I was confident Dr. Behl would get to the bottom of it. He has and I left his office virtually pain free (with my left ankle). I'm grateful for how great he is at his job!!!

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.
