Dr. Mehlman always carefully asks questions to determine the state of my health. He then conducts a thorough examination. Afterwards we have conversation about my present treatment and other treatment options. I always leave Dr. Mehlman feeling less concerned about my heart health situation and a bit more optimistic about my future.

He has kept me healthy, and I am grateful for that. My appointments with Dr. Mehlman are thorough and pleasant. He is always on time, and seems to be in a consistently pleasant mood. At the end of the session he gives me a full summary of his findings, and then after I am gone, he writes a complete description of his findings to my internist with a copy to me. I always feel well-informed.

I met him first during my hospital stay in 2014. He remembers all about me including personal habits, business, and travel. He is human, warm, efficient, and direct in just the combination. Trust is higher with him than any other medical professional I have been with. Small habits in delivering care are appreciated and noted. He comes to the waiting room to greet me, no name or number is hollered out across the room. His notes (letters) from my visits are incredible and full of information that I and other caregivers reference.

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.

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.
