Super doctor and person. I appreciate the many years Dr. Ahmad studied to become the caring expert that he is, especially since I, and his other patients, are the beneficiaries of that knowledge.

First of all he explained the results of the echo testing. He remembered issues from my visit of last year. He checked on the findings from the vascular surgeon he had referred me to. He checked the ct scan from 2019 to see what were the conclusions. He then actually looked at the scan to see the basis of the radiology conclusions. Pretty good visit I’d say.

Disclosures

Imran N. Ahmad, 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.
