Abigail is an AMAZING practitioner and I'm so lucky she does my botox injections. From the first time meeting her, she makes you feel like you've been friends for years vs a new patient coming in for injections. That kind of presence, I feel truly puts a patient at ease and helps her do well with her injections. She's super knowledgeable about the treatment and knows how to deliver the information so that the patient will remember the most common questions, and is great about asking how past injections went.

Abigail was efficient and made good use of the time. She recorded my information as I shared it with her for use by the doctors, and schedule me for appointments in the coming weeks and months.. I did not know what to expect, but it was worth the time, as I felt that the call extended the care beyond the walls of the hospital. Abigail is able to provide information that will create continuity for the doctors who saw me when I was in the hospital and I very much appreciated the linkage.

Disclosures

Abigail J. Veltema, APRN 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.
