Very fortunate to have a Dr. Pipitone has the surgeon to perform Mohr's surgery, as well as syncing her methods with Dr. Simon to close, the affected areas the next day. With the initial consultation prior to surgery, any and all concerns and questions I had where put to rest. The attending nurse (Anna) on the day of surgery was most attentive and assuring throughout the procedure as well as seeing to my comfort during the wait times. Dr. Pipitone was very, very thorough and checked to be assured all of the cancer was removed, and addressed any questions and concerns regarding my current health care plan. Very fortunate to have had Dr. Pipitone as the surgeon.

I can’t say enough positive things about Dr Pipitone. She is very professional and kept me informed step by step what she was doing. She is also very personable and easy to talk to.

Dr. Pipitone was recommended to me by my own primary doctor. I believe I received the best of care from this dermatology surgeon and her assistant, Carolina. When calling with concerns after the surgery, I was urged to come into the office, which I did on two occasions after the Moh's surgery. I never felt that my questions or concerns were trivial. I was treated with great courtesy and respect. I greatly admire both Dr. Pipitone and Carolina.

Disclosures

Michelle A. Pipitone, 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.
