Dr. Hayes elicited and recorded a lot of information from our initial visit. He also accessed my records from another state and questioned me about a test that I had forgotten about. His patient summary (after he reviewed my blood and urine tests) was detailed, and he has offered some testing and possible medication that could prevent serious issues going forward. Ounce of prevention. I like his preventive strategy so far. He seems like a seriously concerned scientist.

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.
