Doctor Caprio looks at me while she is speaking. She presents information in language with examples that I fully understand. Doctor Caprio allows me to ask questions & quickly provides the answer. On my last visit she showed me the MRI that was taken & slowly explained every aspect about it. Dr. Caprio genuinely cares about me. I know she wants me to improve & supports therapies trials & any other method I suggest to possibly improve my well being.

Disclosures

Fan Z. Caprio, 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.
