Dr Rochelle Patel, was the only physician who knew my medical condition and was straightforward with me with what I needed to do how her team would help me and she immediately took me as a patient and as her patient she gave me the information that I needed help me medically and outline the issues that my medical conditions was causing me at that time. Ladies if you need a very good physician Dr Patel is the best in her field I highly recommend that you seek her medical advice except her consultation and accept her as your personal female physician you're getting the best I assure you. This is from my actual patient just recently within her office please consider her please take notice to her medical advice and expertise and professionalism that she has she knows her medical field exactly to a team she's great I'm so glad I found her and her staff.Valerie Robinson.

I've been coming to Northwestern and numerous other doctors and hospitals for going on 6 years in September dealing with my situation. Doctors knowing my situation before I got there only to waste time and tell me they were sorry they couldn't help me. Depressing and disappointing. The first time I met Dr. Patel she got straight to the point helping me to find answers and finally solutions to this horrible disease.

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.
