The follow up appointment was not as thorough as I had hoped. Dr Cahan didn’t offer any new advice—just to continue what I am already doing. Since I’m still hoping for progress, I was looking for more than this.

Dr.Cahan is a very intelligent and kind doctor. I have a complex case so I'm use to doctors rushing me/being dismissive but he gave me all the time I needed to be heard. He showed great compassion and concern for my situation and I could tell he genuinely wants to help me. He was through and informative. He had everything all lined up and ready for me to call to check up on the refferals he gave me. He (and his med students) were great.

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.
