We have a team of lung cancer specialists — radiation doctors, surgeons, medical oncologists, biochemists, pathologists, radiologists — and we work together.
I’m a strong believer in a Japanese proverb — there’s also an American proverb for this. Japanese say, “None of us is as smart as all of us.” We say, “Two heads are better than one.” So bringing experts together — the surgeons may look at something a little differently than I do. The radiation therapists and I may look at something different than they do. And then together we come and say, “This is what we think is best for this patient.”
Delivering that message from a team of experts at one time is a powerful message. And patients have given us a lot of feedback that they really appreciate it.
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.
Number of Patient Surveys
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
