I don't know what happened today but she was not available for my appointment. Total time with a blood draw, was 2.5 hrs. Only after I went looking for Dr Dinner I saw a diffrent physician. What ever was the problem it was upsetting. Eventually I saw Dr Dinner for a few minutes as I was walking out.

Outstanding expertise in her specialty. I have immense faith in her medical advice and decision making. She involves me in the decisions regarding my care. She consults with her peers to try to determine the best pathway to cure me when there is limited data to inform her of what path to choose. She is also open to novel and cutting edge methods of care.

Dr. Dinner read my complete chart prior to my visit, was very thorough in her questions & examination and had developed a plan of care at my visit. I totally agreed with the plan. She was very knowledgeable, complete (not dismissive), and genuinely concerned for my health and care of my current health.

Dr Dinner made the time required to thoroughly understand my condition and make recommendations for my AML treatment. I couldn't have asked for more. Because of the severity of my diagnosis she wouldn't let me leave my visit without first taking a blood test in order to verify that I was healthy enough to do so. She was ready to admit me to the hospital if my blood tests indicated that treatment was required immediately.

Waited a half hour to be called and then advised two patients ahead of me. Then advised office would call to make an appointment for a biopsy and I had to mychart her office to get the appointment. She either has poor time issues or is too busy. I will continue with her for now but if time issues continue I will look elsewhere

She was friendly, very intelligent, and took the time to answer all my questions. She seemed genuinely interested in my condition, and in caring for me. I did not feel like I was being rushed out if the office.

Dr Dinner is extremely calming and informative. She makes sure to go over my case very thoroughly and makes sure to answer all my questions. This may sound crazy but I feel like I am talking to my mother.

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.
