Dr. Gerard and her team are exceptional. Her genuine care for my health is evident in every appointment I have with her. She works with me to understand my current health challenges, and combines that approach with the factual medical data she ensures I get to create the optimal treatment regimen. I also want to call out her nurse Liz who is likewise compassionate and incredibly responsive. I know I can count on Liz to help me however I need.

When I was being released from the hospital, Dr. Gerard spent an hour with me and my mom. When she left the room, my mom, who is not a fan of doctors, said that Dr. Gerard was the first doctor shed met who took time to both talk and listen to you.

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.
