Dr Gowda communicates so well with me, and I guess with others. He is very patient and explanative, but he also adjusts to your levels of knowledge and comfort with details. All questions are answered, and he even makes sure to ask at the end if more questions...and wait to let you thin a bit. He is a HUGE asset to NW,and I'm lucky to have him caring for me.

I have been a patient of Dr. Gowda for a long time and I have always been very satisfied with his services. He was able to diagnose my issues, determine the best treatment course, and been with me all along the way. He is highly knowledgeable and professional. His patient manner is calming and relaxing, but he will gladly spend all the time he needs to make sure you get all of your questions answered and concerns addressed. Dr. Gowda's treatment has been responsible for a significant improvement in my health and well being. I appreciate it. Thanks.

Disclosures

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.
