He’s a very concise doctor. Weighs carefully options based on the particular person and other words he puts a spin on it. That is about you as a patient. He tailor makes it fit the current scenario He is quick to point out there are many options if something doesn’t work out. Reassurance is king if you have cancer. At the same time his pretty forthright to dispel wrongs I like the fact it doesn’t sugarcoat He’s straight forward. Love him!

Disclosures

Faisal Saghir, 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.
