Dr. Kurtzer is amazing, and as someone who's a survivor of medical trauma with multiple invisible and visible disabilities, I feel so lucky to have someone who is so understanding and patient. She's an excellent doctor; she really listens and pays close attention to detail. She'll do all that she can to make care accessible, and she's gone to great lengths coordinating with radiology and the Breast Center for me, to help make sure I'll feel comfortable and safe.

First, her med tech that did the vitals and initial questions was friendly and calming. I felt Dr Kurtzer, too was calming. She knew I was having a difficult time just being there and addressed my anxiety. She listened, never put pressure to end questions. She was very detailed with all questions and concerns. And, she didn’t dismiss me. Very professional and personable.

Disclosures

Traci A. Kurtzer, 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.
