Dr. Uchida listened to my problems and the student interns diagnosis . Afterward she recommended her directions that would be comfortable for me and gave him incite that would motivate her student. She allowed him room to move about with his recommendations without feeling uncomfortable. She has an excellent bedside manner that makes you feel, “everything will be fine”.

i had to wait 12 months to get in to see dr uchida. she was highly recomended so i was willing to wait. (my previous doctor had left northwestern so i was searching for a new internal medicine doc.) i had to wait 1 hour and 15 mins to be seen by the doctor, which left my time with her to 15 minutes. i can see why she is highly recomended. she is very down to earth and practical, (like me) and is clearly an excellent teacher with the med students who were learning from her on that day. and while schedules can get de-railed and i appreciate we are in a pandemic, at no time was i informed that dr uchida was running behind. nor did someone contact me that day saying that she would be delayed and inquiring if i wanted to re-schedule. we are all important and my schedule is just as important as dr uchida's. to ask me, after i had been waiting for so long, did i want to re-schedule, seemed a bit late in the game. so while i can see that the 15 mins i had with her was 'fine', the entire experience, in an organic whole type of way, was a less-than-positive experience.

The waiting is part of it. I'm recovering from a bad injury 18 months ago where I broke four bones. She never referred me to Shirley Ryan where I'm having a very good experienceafter another Dr. referred me there. Also I had shingles before the accident and when I talked about my continuing pain and numbness she never mentioned postherpetic neuralgia which i figured out myself.There are may other things I do like about her.

Disclosures

Toshiko L. Uchida, 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.
