Very kind, not familiar with my issues, recommended further testing …. Wasn’t clear what had Dr. Yu be assigned to me, as she reports to be experienced with stroke…. I didn’t have a stroke

Dr Yu was so lovely, I wasn’t really sure what to expect going into a neurology appointment. She took the time to walk through things with me and me feel comfortable. I left feeling much better and less anxious then waking in.

Dr. Yu let me explain my symptoms and tell her what I think is going on. She did a simple reflex exam and realized that I need a more specific test which she referred me for and extended my medication prescription. She’s very personable and I felt she really gave me her complete attention.

Disclosures

Margaret Yueyang Yu, 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.
