The procedure seems to have been done well. In particular, the decision to biopsy the scar tissue struck me as admirably proactive. His communication after the procedure was succinct, but clear and complete.

I was emotional at the beginning of the procedure because I lost a young relative to colon cancer, and he did not even ask what was the matter. Such a simple thing to do. Then when he sent a note about the polyp in MyChart, his first sentence was, “the tumor appears benign.” First, nobody told me I had a “tumor,” so this was news to me. Second, it’s a neuroendocrine tumor and my doctor had confirmed that there’s no such thing as a benign NET—they’re all cancer. This kind of news warranted a call.

I have been a patient of Dr Karacic for almost 20 years. I've received great care, follow-up in all these years. However; due to Covid 19 care for patients lacked tremendously. I was recently diagnosed with autoimmune hepatitis. I wasn't able to see my dr sooner than June because of all the Covid policies in place . By the time I was able to see my dr. my diagnoses was so grave I had to be hospitalized via e.r. I was deeply disappointed in NWH, for the 2nd time!

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.
