I feel she is instrumental in the comments above and proactive in her approach to care. She makes excellent suggestions and is quick to explain the pros and cons. I know from personal family experiences I need a doctor who is honest and forthright, she meets, even exceeds, that need.

Very knowledgeable, shows great concern to keeping my health in the best possible place. I feel good with her explanation of my lab results. She exemplifies what an excellent doctor should provide for her patients. I never expected to live this long but under her care I will have many more years to look forward to. She is top shelf in the field of endrocronology.

Please see above! Plus, Dr G., simply put, makes me feel very much at ease while we're discussing sensitive topics in my life, and she always sounds confident and like she knows what to do that will "fix my problem" :-) When my labs are good she compliments me and says she is happy with my progress; when the labs have a downward trend, she will ask questions to help me see what i could do differently to improve. Their office runs like a "well-oiled" machine and Dr G is solidly at the helm taking great care of her patients.

She is one of the best Endocrinologist I’ve ever had. She really pushes you to do better for yourself. She helps you make better choices and gives you great feedback with your lifestyle and living with diabetes. She is an outstanding doctor and a really genuine human being.

She is the BEST. I like seeing my doctor. She is a Beautiful person, inside, & out. I like what she says to me, that I can relate. I want to do what the doctor says, for a long, long, time. Relationship time: days, weeks, months, & years of listening to what the doc says.

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.
