I’m confused. She said that my hair loss was not bad and that if she saw me, she would not know that was what I was being treated for. And she said “well you have a full head of hair, and you always have, not to minimize your condition.” I had literal handfuls of hair falling out a year ago. But today, after saying I’m fine she went on to double the dose that I’m on? I don’t understand. I get that I an a unique case and 80% of the appt she states that she doesn’t know why im losing hair. But then she tells me its probably just related to my RA and i dont have any type of alopecia at all? What the hell? Talk about whiplash

Dr. Colavincenzo was pleasant, a good communicator, empathic, thorough. She was everything that I ideally want in a physician. She listened to my concerns and answered all my questions. She inspired confidence and trust in her competence. She clearly has expert knowledge in her field.

I had a great experience with Dr. Colavincenzo. She listened to what I was going through and was attentive with my concerns. She provided me with numerous different cutting edge treatment options. She has a firm understanding of my condition and works with many other patients dealing with alopecia.

She is very educated on the currently available ways of combating hair loss and is scientific in her approach of keeping detailed records. She is nice and is concerned about what the patient thinks of her treatment plan for them. She presents both the pros and cons.

I didn't learn anything about her or her clinic. She did the vast majority of the talking, & yet I learned nothing. It was a defeatist appt. It was a waste of time & I left feeling worse than when I came in.

She has turned out to be the best dermatologist I have had the privilege to see. Even among some of the most well trained academic dermatologists, that is. I always leave her office knowing I have learned something new and I have received the best care available.

I have been going to Dr. Colo for years. She is not an alarmist, has always been right on target with diagnosis, takes the time to explain things - in short, she is fantastic. If she were to leave NM Dermatology and align herself with another institution, I would follow her, so long as it was located in or around Chicago.

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.
