Since this was my first visit with Dr. Kang a good deal of time was done with pretesting eye pressure measurements,dilation etc. When pretesting was competed, Dr. Kang consulted with me and advised that good accurate eye pressure measurements could not be obtained due to tilted nerves. She prescribed glaucoma medication and a recheck in two months for further consultation.

Disclosures

Jessica Minjy Kang, 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.
