Dr Metcalf-Doetsch was asked to make a time change to our appointment and he did so in a very positive way. His interaction with our 95 year old dad exceeded our expectations. The Nurse Practitioner and the Doctor were Great.

I think I kind of just answered that question in the previous box, but Dr. Metcalf was very sympathetic with the struggle I have gone through and understands my sense of urgency to get an answer on what’s going on. Then we can set the plan to fix it. Secondly, I called in on one day and was able to see him the next. Unfortunately, my frustration with some of the neurologist, downtown, as I had to wait seven months to get into see a doctor. In my opinion, that’s unacceptable.

Disclosures

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.
