I would and have, already recommended NM, Dr. Frank Martini my GI specialist to two other family members. He listens closely and considers all other possible health issues and does all proper assessment testing, before moving forward. He knows his specialization area better than any other GI doctor's I have had in the past. He explains in detail if asked, and his staff is alway on top of every call or concern. They take as much time as a patient needs to communicate. He has a wonderful and knowledgable staff which makes all the difference for a doctor's rapport. A perfect team when you're not well, is a blessing. I wouldn't change a thing.

After 4 years, it took forever to get an appointment, then I finally spoke with him on the phone and was completely rushed through it! The call lasted just 15 minutes, when it should’ve been much longer, especially considering I had just had 2 Diverticular attacks. Ridiculous to say the least. I like the doctor, but that’s about it. They have one person that can be relied upon and that’s Cindy. All others I’ve dealt with should be replaced.

Dr Martini was wonderful. This was my first visit and I did not know what to expect. However, he had been recommended by Dr Ganshirt who took out my gallbladder a few months earlier. (My own GI, Dr. Khurana at Good Shepherd Hospital had just retired.) Soon after I stepped into his office, I knew I was in good hands with Dr Martini. Dr. He saw me only minutes after my appointed time. During his examination, he sounded parsimonious; he explained things clearly and without ifs and buts. I appreciate a no nonsense doctor. And, finally, Dr Martini was pleasant, courteous, attentive. What an asset to your medical staff.

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.
