She seemed annoyed and dismissive during our appointment. I could have seen my primary doctor who could have given me different medication options. She also gave me options instead of making a decision on which medication would be best with the least amount of side effects. It was honestly a waste of time.

Prior to this visit, I was extremely satisfied with Dr. Shrivastava. She was always kind, thorough, and compassionate. However, now I not only would not recommend her to anyone, but I will also never go back myself. She was incredibly rude, unprofessional, and belittling. She started the appt out by saying I did not follow up when directed and stated "who's fault is that?", despite being booked up 8 mo in advance. She was very uncaring and dismissive of my symptoms. She seemed very upset that I discontinued amitriptyline, however that was to meant to replace a trazodone which I had been on for many years and was prescribed by my long time psychiatrist. The amitriptyline disrupted my sleep and did not improve my migraines, so my psychiatrist and I decided it was best for me to stop the med. Dr. Shrivastava did not allow me to explain. She very rudely said "there is nothing I can do to help you" and was unwilling to discuss other possible options. I have experienced migraines for most of my life and I left the office feeling completely defeated and hopeless. I fully plan on finding a neurologist that is willing and wanting to help me. Unfortunately, I know that there are no repercussions or accountability for physicians, but I truly hope that she does not make anyone feel as horrible as I did when I left the office.

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.
