Dr Afana was very impressive.., informative, professional, patient, open to questions. Explained in a way that I completely understand the need for and the potential dangers of the procedure. I appreciated his honesty and knowledge. He has the right amount of confidence and compassion. Most importantly, he fit me in very quickly for both the consult and procedure. I very much appreciate how me and my situation was handled.

Dr. Afana provided me with an extremely thorough and thoughtful consult where he took the time to dive into my medical history and attempt to figure out if anything out of the ordinary was going on. He did a great job explaining my results and reassuring me that there was nothing to be concerned about. Dr. Afana was personable, knowledgeable, and genuinely cared.

Disclosures

Majed Afana, 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.
