We've been with Dr. Torero before my daughter turned 2 years old and she's now 13. His knowledge and passion is unmatched. We live in Chicago. We've followed Dr. Torero from Oak lawn, Il.(very close to my home) to Winfield for a reason. He and his staff are the best.

Dr. Torero is amazing. He provides excellent care, explains his concerns and instructions in a very clear, patient friendly way, and truly loves what he does. We drive over an hour to see him, and there are plenty of pediatric pulmonologists with closer locations, but knowing how he cares for my son is all that matters.

Disclosures

Luis E. Torero, 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.
