Dr. Smyth listened to my issues and concerns, did a thorough exam and gave me all of the treatment options available to me. He was great! I also want to acknowledge Dr. Erica Yeo, the resident who was assisting Dr. Smyth. She was likewise professional and thorough. She was attentive to Dr. Smyth’s instructions and they seemed to have an excellent rapport. They both had great bedside manner!

Ongoing consultation with him. He took time with me at my first appointment and helped me make some choices rather than dictating to me as some doctors do. He has a wonderful bedside manner. I feel confident in his knowledge base and that he is not jumping immediately to surgery but choses to start out with the less aggressive approaches to see how it works.

He was very good in explaining to my husband and I what the problem was and how he intended to fix it surgically. Today follow up he spent time with us. Did not rush us.

Disclosures

Mark P. Smyth, 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.
