1. Prescribed a medication I am NOT supposed to take due to another condition. Amitriptyline + glaucoma = bad times. 2. Didn’t seem too interested in figuring anything out. 3. Didn’t mention a follow up visit so I can only assume she’s not interested in being my doctor.

There have been times where I feel like the doctor is upset with me for not getting fewer migraines. There is nothing I can do, and I have learned to just accept I will get 10 or so a month (down from about 20 or more without treatment), and it sucks, sure, but I'm happy with the reduction down to 10 and don't expect anything beyond that.

Never even reviewed my current medications to see if any interactions with what she wanted to prescribe. Difficulty understanding, not thorough, doesn't let you talk and fully answer. Doctor heavily pushes medicine instead of exploring other options first. Not super friendly, either.

Disclosures

Archana Shrivastava, 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. To learn more about our Disclosure and Professional Integrity Policy, and the conflict of interest policies of our joint affiliate survey partners, please go to our Office for Regulatory Affairs Policies page.
