Let me start by saying I wish I could give her 1000 out of 10 because she was so great. I learned more information about my condition in one short visit than I did 3 visits with my old endocrinologist. And I only did she inform me about what was going on with my thyroid, but she also made me feel better about it. She answered every question that I had without making me feel silly for having a question and I definitely feel like she actually cared about me as a person. She didn’t just see me as a $

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.
