Profile Video of Michael Chen, MD View Transcript
My practice really is focused on taking care of patients with blood vessel diseases of the brain and spine. When dealing with the brain and spine there really is — every decision there’s so much at stake. There’s really no room for error.
When you’re at a place like this, probably one of the biggest assets is really your colleagues — getting everybody else involved, making sure that they are all going through their checklists, and are able to communicate easily within the organization. If all that leads to the team doing better, I know for a fact that that’s going to be even more powerful to helping improve the odds for a good patient outcome.
Treating Cerebrovascular Conditions
Patient feedback information is available for physicians employed by Rush University Medical Center who have received
30 or more patient surveys. Responses are measured on a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 being the best score.
Friendliness/courtesy of the care provider
Explanations the care provider gave you about your problem or condition
Concern the care provider showed for your questions or worries
Likelihood of your recommending this care provider to others
Care provider's efforts to include you in decisions about your treatment
Information the care provider gave you about medications
Instructions the care provider gave you about follow-up care
Your confidence in this care provider
Degree to which care provider talked with you using words you could understand
Amount of time the care provider spent with you
