I already referred her to a friend that asked me today for a recommendation! She was a good listener and addressed my issues in detail and followed up by telling me she would send details of her suggestions via MyChart. She sent the information immediately after our conversation. She also made herself available to any follow up questions.

This was my 1st appointment ever with NWM. Dr. Shanahan was thorough and listened patiently to my concerns, She also sought questions from me. Medical advice was given and I was given the name of another doctor in the department, Integrative Med., to schedule bio-feedback. I made that call and am awaiting the callback for this initial in-person visit.

Disclosures

Anna B. Shannahan, 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.
