Dr Amy Halverson has fantastic bedside manner. She is extremely knowledgeable and takes the time to speak and explain in an easy to understand manner. I will recommend Dr Halverson to anyone seeking this type of care. I feel fortunate to be in her care. I feel safe with her amidst the uncomfortable medical topics we have to discuss. A++

Dr. Halverson is thorough and explains everything in detail. She's always stays in the room until I've asked and she's answered all of my questions. She's a straight shooter and I really like that.

after having crohs / ulcerative colitis for 20 years and multiple hospital stays I was faced with a tough decision to have my colon removed. Doctor Halverson was amazing before the surgery. Her and her team continue to support my Stome care / needs 3 year later. they are all the best.

Listened to all of my concerns. Very intelligent, made me feel she knew what she was doing. Spent a lot of time trying to convince me to have much needed surgery. This was a surgery follow-up visit. I am healing very well.

Dr. Halverson seems very knowledgeable of colorectal treatment methods. She is also very attentive and addressed my concerns. She has ordered records from all the doctors I visited and who have performed rectal are a procedures, so perhaps there is more to come. She seems very thorough.

Dr. Halverson is amazing! Her approach encompasses the medical aspect but she provided me with care in answering numerous questions, supporting me with the emotional side of surgery, a long recovery & serious issue. Dr. Halverson was excellent in explaining things & keeping me on a positive path to recovery

Dr. Halverson has provided exceptional medical care since March 2021. She has a wonderful personality, comforting me as a patient and taking time to explain condition & plan of care. She's made a tough condition bearable and provided great support

If I went to another surg today they might have said œsure lets do the surg?. But Dr. Amy took the time to explain all my options, and there were a few. And surg isnt my best option for now, and Im glad Im in the best hands possible.

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.
