She always gives us the time we need and never rushes. Very professional and kind. The department that is in charge of prescription renewals leaves something to be desired. I always have to call after we get a message from our mail order company that they hadn’t responded to their request.

I love her as a person, and admire and trust her as my PCP. I know when we meet she is having a conversation with me because she understands my state of mind can affect my physical health. She is the PCP for my adult children as well. There is a reason for that!!

Dr. Friedman is great! She is really efficient and caring. The MA, I think her name was Levathia, was really on top of things. I liked the way she shared my vitals with me when they were done. Simona who drew my labs was the best blood draw I have ever had. I didn't even feel a little pinch and no bruising whatsoever. All around great visit.

Excellent care. Explains what is going on and treatment options in an effective manner. Generally, Dr. Friedman is a very caring physician with excellent outcomes and plans for treatment. More importantly, remembers who I am and takes the time to review charts and progress notes from other physicians prior to meeting me. This makes the time with Dr. Friedman very productive. I feel that most physicians (excluding most at NMH) are overburden and spend too much time capturing information for Epic rather than focusing on what the patient is saying about their condition.

Disclosures

Jordana S. Friedman, 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.
