Dr Sam Hung is kind and informative and knowledgeable with my chart and on top of my prescription drugs. We both monitor my symptoms and suggest and agree on possible remedies. Also Northwestern immediate care helped with a common symptom I suddenly received and treated the wound immediately and prescribed necessary antibiotics so the wound did not get infected. I am very satisfied with my primary physician and immediate care.

Dr. Sam Hung is one of the most thoughtful, empathetic, and caring PCP/Internal Medicine physicians I’ve ever encountered. He is the thoughtful in his treatment approach—inclusive of both medications as well as supplemental behavior changes. He is clear in his communication of his algorithm—a level of transparency that is so appreciated and makes it feel like a physician-patient joint decision, rather than unidirectional care.

Disclosures

Sam T. Hung, 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.
