She had reviewed the nurse's notes. She asked specific questions and listened and asked for specifics. Then entered notes. Doctor included my husband in discussion which helped me. Shared x-rays and explained. Clear directions for home and next steps. A clear plan.

Dr. Glasgow is phenomenal! She is extremely knowledgeable about every aspect of the issues I need help with! She is also well-versed about how to ensure Vegans get the nutrients they need to ensure optimum health and wellness. Her attention to crucial details, easily overlooked when dealing with so many medical issues with one person, is nothing short of amazing!

Dr Glasgow has been very thorough in her assessment of my specialized need. She reviewed my history, reviewed and explained the MRI, and developed surgical plan to address injured shoulder. Doctor is very attentive and listened to me.

I feel Dr Michele Glasgow really listened to me and understood my concern with my chronic Rt arm issues. I'm a believer in PT but I want to know the cause of the returning pain. Dr. Michele understands my frustration.

Dr. Michele is well known and respected for her expertise and surgical skills. Her reputation precedes her. She is kind, caring and answers questions easily and thoroughly. My husband has experienced great outcomes after shoulder surgeries with her. She is great.

She asked me a lot of questions and was a good listener. Her thoroughness in going over my history and explaining her recommendations were much appreciated. This is a very busy doctor who took the time with me I needed to understand my bone health. Highly recommend!

My appointment was about bone health and receiving a prolia injection. She was caring, wanted to know my background since I’m from Texas. Explained why she needed certain blood tests, etc and wanted to ensure I did not miss my next prolia injection and why the importance of sticking with the 6 months injection. I also liked that she told me she would call me with the test results when and what time of day she would call.

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.
