Dr Gaetano is the best care I’ve received in the Midwest next to Dr Robinson my Gynecologist . Doctors here do not have the same practice or care as my doctor in Los Angeles. It’s been painful for me for almost two years now, and I still don’t have a way to help my bloat (that makes me look Six months pregnant) … I appreciate the appointment for an endoscopy and a colonoscopy but I don’t have three more months left to feel the way I feel. There has got to be a way to help my bloating and I need something more than some fiber and MiraLAX. So for this I cannot get 1 million stars.

Excellent bedside manner. Procedure seemed to have gone well. The anesthesiologist was super. So nice and he spent plenty of time with me before I went in. Really put me at ease. I am very sorry I can’t remember the doctor’s name at the moment.

Dr. Gaetano was recommended to me by someone in the medical community that knows the medical population well. The recommendation was and is spot on. Dr. Gaetano is friendly, confident, professional and caring. I had two procedures by him today. Add extremely skillful to his skill set. If you need a GI, do not hesitate. Dr. Gaetano will be a welcome addition to medical providers

Dr Gaetano is an amazing doctor! He found my anal cancer in 2020. I feel that I am in the best care possible with him. I am always treated with so much care and respect. North is very lucky to have him on their team
John N. Gaetano, MD reported no external professional relationships for calendar year 2021.
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.
