On his profile, Dr. Andrew’s indicated that he performed parathyroid surgery, which is another of my issues. Dr. Andrews told me he hasn’t performed parathyroid surgery for 5 years. I had viewed that as a competitive advantage, but it was a misunderstanding.

The staff from the moment I entered to the time I checked out were amazing. I’m new to the North Chicago area - and have never met a more qualified doctor than Dr. Andrews. He was EXCEPTIONAL and I wish her could be my primary for everything. Immediate trust and I HIGHLY recommend him. What a great medical mind, true professional, great communicator and health advocate.

He was more than highly recommended. Having met him, operated on by him, read his notes on my operation, communications with his nurse Liz, and more, I could not think of anyone else I would have wanted to operate on me.

Dr. Andrews carries himself like a skilled professional. In our first visit, he went through why I needed surgery and what he would do. Liz, his nurse, made sure I had everything in my possession a week early to prepare me for my big day. He dropped in to see me while I was getting prepped for surgery and was all business. As I fell asleep before I was wheeled to surgery, I was happy I was at NW in Lake Forrest and was in excellent hands.

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.
