I met Dr Pittman for the first time when I needed emergency gall bladder surgery on a Sunday morning. He was very reassuring and had the confidence that is most needed in a surgeon. Dr Pittman visited with me the next day, explained the surgery and made me feel that all had gone well. Saw him in clinic today for the post op and certainly felt that I had truly been extremely fortunate given the facts what the surgery involved and that Dr Pittman was the one who did the surgery and that I was healing so well. He was very pleased with the results and I am most grateful.

Dr Pittman thoroughly reviewed imaging with me and provided me with a detailed rationale on why surgery was not necessary at this time. I would strongly recommend him purely based on how friendly he is, but also also a true professional who took research into consideration and not his pocket book. He advised against surgery at this time but provided me with resources to help with my abdominal issues.

Disclosures

Matthew R. Pittman, 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.
