Every neurologist I have used (approx 6) has been very capable and caring. They study my issues prior to our meetings and do not just spout platitudes. E.g., I visited Dr. Fan Caprio last week. 2 hours prior, I had some blood tests done for my cardiologist. Dr. Caprio picked them off in our meeting, and described to my wife and me why they looked good. I have been very pleased with our neurologists.

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.
