Would not reccomend this doctor. From the moment he walked in he seemed like he'd rather be anywhere else. His tone said he didn't care to be there, he asked a few questions, and his explanations made it sound like I was wasting his time. I had to prompt him for further information just for basic answers. Not a single show of compassion or even a smile from him. I'm not a high needs person whatsoever, I'm very understanding. You don't have to be smiley, but at least act like you care about your patients and take the time to understand their problems and needs. I got none of that. Didn't even feel respected as a person. He wasn't mean or out right rude, just made it obvious he couldn't care less to be there. I will not return to him and would not reccomend him to anyone. Not sure what he is doing in the Healthcare field. Never felt compelled to leave a review before outside of good ones because I understand people have bad days, so this is my first. I wish I had a single good thing to say, I really do bcuz as long as someone at least shows care and an interest in really getting to the root of things that's all I really need. That didn't exist today. I wish it did because otherwise this is a really nice facility and everyone else was nice and professional for what was my first visit.

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.
