Dr. Patel was wonderful, kind, patient, caring and listened to me. It was apparent during my appointment that she was familiar with my background which allowed me the opportunity to get down to the specific reasons that I was there. And she was able to really help me problem solve In an area that is often difficult to talk about. Dr. Patel was very positive and provided me with options that I had not been provided before. She treated me holistically. I left feeling very positive about myself which is something I had not felt in a long time.

The mysteries of menopause are seldom discussed and very little reliable information is available on the web. This leaves women over 50 limited, without a voice and knowledge about troubling effects that are common with menopause and neglectful of their physical and mental health. Knowing that there are options and solutions are refreshing and I want to shout it out to every mature woman I know.

It was very evident that Dr. Patel had read over my information prior to seeing me in the office. She came into the visit with a variety of ways to treat my problems. I greatly appreciated that Dr. Patel gave me 100% of her attention during our visit. She had an assistant recording information on the computer which allowed her to be completely engaged with me. I did not feel that Dr. Patel was rushing to get to her next appointment and she took the time to answer any questions I had. She also made me feel comfortable discussing extremely personal issues.

Disclosures

Rajal C. Patel, 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.
