Dr. Szmuilowicz is an incredible doctor. She takes the time to review everything with you, make sure you understand and when there are issues or questions she works to address those issues and continue to work to find the answers. She is knowledgeable, caring and thorough and has even reviewed test results ordered by my other care givers at Northwestern and if she sees a problem she is on top of alerting me to issues I need to be concerned about and address.

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.
