Not Remembering, and Not Knowing ItPeople who will develop dementia may begin to lose awareness of their memory problems two to three years before the actual onset of the disease, according to a new study by researchers at Rush.
My philosophy to patient care is being proactive rather than retroactive. I think with all the resources that we have today, with all the amazing research that’s been done, things should be diagnosed really early and treated early.
At Rush we are blessed with working with physicians who are pioneers in their field and who are the best at what they do. And I feel very blessed that I can pick up a phone and call a physician, and ask him a question and get back to the patient.
I feel like when my patients come and see me it’s basically like seeing a family member.
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.
