The only reason I was a bit upset it is because when I got my left pinky toe biopsy, I felt the nail removal , she did give me more lidocaine but still managed to feel the removal , as she numbed my other foot , the numbing on my left toe somehow wore off . I felt pain immediately, I asked how long does it take for numbing to go away she said 1to 2 hours , because I was already feeling pain , I guess I’m upset because they don’t give out Ibuprofen, she also suggested me to go to a cvs near by , I believe pain killers should be given Incase of this scenario like mine , I was literally in 8/10 pain

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.
