This was my first visit with Dr. Silverberg. I was extremely late for my appointment due to traffic. Dr. Silverberg did not have to see me but he did. He let me know that he had a patient that was due in 15 min. He said he couldn't take the time with me that he normally takes with a patient. Dr. Silverberg did take the time and was very thorough. First impressions of an individual is very important to me. His bedside manner was outstanding.

Disclosures

Robert A. Silverberg, 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.
