My only feedback is that it wasn't really explained to me what "compound medication" means, so when I was told the prescription would be sent to a certain specific pharmacy in a random neighborhood that's not near me, I didn't know why that was. However, the online messaging system made it easy for me to send a message to ask and this was answered promptly by a nurse and explained, which I appreciated!

I’d highly recommend Dr. Kurtzer. She’s kind, trauma-informed, and does what she can to meet me where I am, and I’ll be forever grateful. She’s willing to take the time to really consider my questions and provide support and resources when she can, to coordinate care and also to help me feel comfortable. I know that this is something that the medical system doesn’t usually allow providers to do, but I’m so grateful she’s dedicated to find a way to do it without ever making me feel like a burden.

OMG! The most knowledgeable human on pre,”me-no-pause” and post menopause. She spent time with explaining everything that is happening. And a thorough exam but no typical, Pap smear, no it was not. It was more about checking sensitivity and pelvic strength. Amazing! Thank you Dr. Kurtzer for imparting your wisdom. It was so nice and refreshing to be with someone that appeared to be around my same age with so much knowledge on this apparently taboo subject.

In addition to my comments above, she likely spent an hour with me & I left the appointment knowing that I had a clear management strategy, which I was never able to receive from a previous Gyne Oncologist. She also was able to correct previous provider's inaccurate diagnosis. This was a game changer in my care!! How could my previous provider not have my anatomy properly identified???

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.
