The attending doctor used leading questions. She had her mind made up and took no new information on board. Her very attentive practice nurse had asked me a slew of questions before the doctor came in, yet the doctor refused to read any of it. This made me anxious and tense. I'm mentally ill and being put on the spot didn't make me feel like I was valued. My symptoms were trivialized and pawned off as 'psychological' instead of the doctor ensuring that they weren't physiological, which was the entire intent of my visit.

Disclosures

Padmaja Gutti, 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.
