Dr. Sporn, took time to go over my medical history with me. He explained the progression of my disease and alerted me to what I need to do in the future. I didn't feel rushed. He was very pleasant. I'm glad I selected Dr. Sporn.

Dr. Sporn is widely know as a specialist in my particular disease. But he is so much more than that. He makes the time to really listen to what the patient is asking and to “read “the unanswered questions. Patients rarely see this level of commitment from their physicians anymore. I have three physicians who do this at Northwestern and I consider myself more than fortunate. Please know how much it is appreciated by your patients.

I was so impressed that when Dr Sporn came in the room to meet me for the first time he had clearly already spent time reviewing my medical history including ct scans and X-rays going back over a decade. He then spent a significant amount of time asking and listening and to me about my medical and life history. He was able to take the images and my history to piece together an incredible diagnosis of a fungus that was endemic to the area I grew up in and that I had played in the soils, and on farms. I came away with complete confidence in the timing of the infection, confidant that it was no longer an issue and that past damage should not affect my daily functions. I told my family and friends that grew up in the same region about this as they might face some of the same questions in the future. Dr Sporn was very nice, professional, and seemed happy when I showed an interest in what he had found. Very impressed and happy/relieved.

Dr. Sporn is an expert in his field of pulmonary medicine with an emphasis on sarcoidosis. He also works with my primary care physician and cardiologist to give me the best possible care. This is very important to me.

Dr. Sporn is not only a doctor of pulmonary medicine, but he is an expert in sarcoidosis, a serious lung (and other organ) disease that a lot of people don't know about, including some medical people. Dr. Sporn has gone over my medical situation, and has offered me several choices as to how to manage my condition.

Dr Sporn is a very detailed doctor that asked questions and listened for answers. He even took the tome to explain a CT scan telling me what I was looking at in my lungs. I liked that he didnâ€™t assume I wouldnâ€™t know what he was talking about nor did he brush off some of my concerns but explained things very well. I appreciated that very much. Lately, doctors have been disappointing to not only to me, unfortunately, this is a conversation that many patients are having. However, Dr Sporn is one out of hundreds that has my vote. ðŸ‘?ðŸ?½

I agree with assessment of my situation and the care in which he walked me through the radiologic findings of my tests. He took into consideration my current lifestyle and viewed all with a holistic lens.

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.
