I am most pleased with the care I receive from Dr. Mesulam. He is by far the finest physician I have ever seen in my 66 years of life. He is kind, considerate, empathetic, and most important of all, brilliant. He has an excellent team of support for both me and my husband. We are most blessed having him as our physician and quarterback/Head Coach of our care team.

While Dr Mesulam is extremely knowledgeable, he lacks empathy. The manner in which he leads his appointments is almost authoritarian....do not speak unless spoken to, keep responses succinct, and do not ask for feedback of any kind.

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.
