At present, I feel very uneasy about my cancer care. Rushed conversations with doctor, not getting enough detail about scans and future treatment plans. Conflicting recommendations between pulmonologists and oncologist about timeliness of treatment. Feeling a bit defeated. Would prefer a different oncologist, but don't know how to proceed

Dr. Boumber is very educated and informative and also patient. I did not feel rushed with my visit. He made sure that he addressed all of my questions and concerns and tried really hard to explain things to where I would understand. Cancer is a very scary situation to be in but I feel confident with Dr. Boumber as my doctor.

Professional, but seemed a bit rushed. I was a bit concerned about the C/T Scan results due to changes noted in my chest lymph nodes. He gave a very cryptic explanation. I asked about the possible reasons for changes. Ultimately, Dr. Boumber deduced that the enlarged bilateral subpectoral lymph nodes were due the covid-19 vaccine shots injected in my left and right arms over the last month. Also, he didn't mention this but, I asked several follow-up questions about my thyroid, white blood cell count. Then, he ordered additional tests. I'm just not certain that he would have done this if I hadn't assertively asked related questions. However, I do appreciate his suggestions for the cartid scan next year and follow-up with a Colonoscopy. I felt better about that. Also, more eye contact doctor. slow down. See me. Thank you.

Dr. Yanis was through in his explanation of my condition. He also gave me confidence that I could have a favorable outcome. He was very positive and reassuring at every level of care and referrals. The nurse's and staff assured me that I was in the best of hands!

I was quite satisfied. His manner did strike me as leaning towards that of a researcher, but was easy to adjust to. (The only reason for not rating a 9 or 10.) He explained the reasons for all treatments, answered any questions I may have had, and always emphasized, if I had any questions, he was only a phone call or email away. At this point he appears to be my primary contact and I have no problem with that and would definitely recommend him

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.
