Dr. Jahromi sat down and went over every possible aspect of my surgery. He took his time and did not rush through my appointment time. He did not act like he was in a hurry to go somewhere else. He seemed genuinely interested in me.

I really like Dr Jahromi, I love his personality, demeanor and I believe he is an awesome doctor. Unfortunately, I would probably tell whomever I referred him to to be prepared to wait as my experience is that he is not on time.

High level of confidence and trust. Yes, he gives me "Here's what the MRA/MRI shows; but the minutes he spends talking one-to-one and listening make me feel like he cares. Yes, I would recommend him.

I have been under Dr. Jahromi’s care for the last 6 years. I am always impressed by not only his level of competence but also his care and compassion. His dedication to the culture of Northwestern Medicine is quite obvious and greatly appreciated.

My family has declared if they have any neurological medical issues, they want no one else, other than Dr. Jahromi to attend to them. There are not enough superlatives to express our confidence in his practice!

Firstly, I was surprised to find how personable Dr. Jahromie was; AND so informative! I cannot begin to express how grateful I am that he was willing to sit with me and my husband and answer all of our questions and concerns. I will soon be moving hours away. We have already decided we will travel back to see him when needed

He was well informed of. y situation before he met. He also NEVER made me feel rushed. He answered all of my questions in detail and even showed me a You Tube video to help illustrate. Seems ver confident but NOT arrogant. The same is true of his PA Trisha.

Dr. Jahromi is an excellent doctor and surgeon who explained options and also risks for surgery. It is apparent he is conscientious and has great skills. We are thankful he was on duty to perform my surgery. He was a pleasure to deal with and I have total confidence in his abilities. We are so thankful for him and Northwestern Memorial Hospital.

Dr Jahromi speaks to me like I have a brain and am capable of making decisions together with him. I feel like he is treating me as a person and respects me. He listens to my concerns and really hears me. I have been under his care for almost two years and will have an ongoing doctor patient relationship. I am grateful to him every day. Thank you Dr Jahromi!

Dr. Jahromi is the best! He explains things well, and instills a high degree of confidence in me, his patient, and my family. He is a top practitioner in his field and I trust him to do a thorough job for my surgeries. I have had four surgeries with him thus far, and listening to him and watching him in the Operating Room, double checking that everyone knows what the procedure will be, its location, etc., puts me at ease before each procedure. of course, i hope not to have any more procedures, but he cannot control my biology!

Dr. Jahromi is a highly skilled neurosurgeon. That alone would give him a 10 out of 10. However, what sets him above so many is his genuine concern for his patients. He is thorough, compassionate, and pleasant. I feel beyond fortunate he is my doctor.

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.
