She is patient, kind and thorough in her system reviews. She truly listens and makes our medically fragile non-verbal son truly part of the team in medical decisions. She is insightful and a pleasure. She also writes strong letters of medical necessity. She researches on behalf of her patients to be current on treatment options. She explains clearly. NW is lucky to have such a strong advocate on staff to help families navigate. She is so resourceful and really cares; she is gem.

Dr. Keen is patient, kind, knowledgeable, an incredible listener, and honest. You may not always hear what you want but she will ALWAYS take the time to explain her position along with steps that can be taken to gather further information. You also NEVER feel rushed.

I think Dr. Keen may be the only doctor who really sees my son as a person. She thinks about the whole kid not just her areas of study. She addresses not just medical issues but also enhances the overall quality of life for me and my son. And of course she's super smart! I wish all children could have the benefits of a doctor like her in their lives.

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.
