My first impression of Dr. Malaisrie is that he cares about his patients and he actually sits down and listens to you and explains to you about your health or what is going on with you. He is not does doctors that are only there just to be a doctor and for what he gets paid. I'm happy there are still doctors like Malaisrie that loves there profession and are there because of the patients.

The three Cs: competence, compassion and calming. The Evidence based medicine approach with statistics and experience inspired confidence and it was evident Dr Malaisrie cared about me as a patient.

Dr. Malaise was easy to talk with. He was so good about telling me about procedures and explaining anything I didn't understand. I am looking forward to speaking with him soon. He seems to be very thorough. Dr. Is all of the things I look for in the doctors I select.

He is very knowledgeable and considerate. He shares not only wisdom and insight into the best course of action, but also talks through other options and acknowledges the patientâ€™s role in the decision making process.

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.
