Dr Bradley is amazing. She takes the time to really listen to my mom and me (her advocate) and ask questions on a way that my mother understands. She follows up quickly with blood results and even calls with updates. I am grateful for the way she interacts with my mother’s other doctors too. My mom has a lot of issues and I think Dr Bradley’s expectations and prescribed treatments are realistic. She understands the limitations and considers my mother’s complete well-being (vs just endlessly prescribing more medication or unnecessary surgeries). Lastly - she and her staff are available if we have urgent questions or need to adjust appointments. I am grateful to have such thorough care.

Disclosures

Sara M. Bradley, 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.
