Felt like my questions were an annoyance for him. I realize surgeons aren't generally known for their bedside manner, but treat me like I have a brain, because I do. Spent 15-20 minutes with him and then had to wait 30 minutes for someone to help make a PET scan appointment (which of course was 2 weeks out). Again, hello, cancer!? No sense of urgency or wanting the patient to have intelligent, actionable answers.

Incredibly talented, knowledgeable surgeon who not only had my current health but also my future health in mind during this operation. Dr. Strong is the kind of precise, decisive, patient-driven surgeon you want for a third Crohn's surgery. I am incredibly thankful to have had him leading mine. When I thanked Dr. Strong, he said it was a team effort. What an outstanding team indeed. Thank you!!

Because of my past medical history, I didn’t just want a good surgeon, I wanted the best. Not only is Dr. Strong a highly qualified surgeon, he is also caring and friendly. I felt very comfortable and optimistic after my visit.

Don’t really know how to accurately score Dr. Strong on this, but I cannot recommend someone’s team that takes this long to see or schedule surgery , this reflects my score for care.

This was a first visit. My case is complicated and it was clear he had studied my past history and asked very relevant questions. He was on time and patiently answered my questions. He made me feel comfortable and if I had to do surgery I could trust his skill and judgment.

Dr. Strong's experience, knowledge and skill makes him best suited for the most complex and complicated cases, such as mine. Knowing there is a steady, very experienced hand that is managing my health is extremely reassuring.

I am deeply impressed with Dr. Scott Strong who knew the details of my case, gave me very specific explanations and a plan going forward. He was prompt in communicating with my oncologist. His very demeanor gave me confidence.

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.
