Dr. Kia is amazing! She’s very patient and always answers all my questions/concerns thoroughly and in terms I can understand. I’m currently dealing with a health issue that goes beyond her GI scope and appreciated that she took the time to weigh in as it relates to my concerns over potential correlation to my “gut health”. She takes a genuine interest in her patients, has a wonderful demeanor, and I always know I’m in great hands in her care. I honestly wish she was also my GP as she’s that awesome!

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.
