Physician, Reveal ThyselfRush has begun including patient survey results in individual physicians' online profiles. It's among few U.S. medical centers, and the only one in the Midwest, to make this information available to potential patients.
Offering Warmth on a Cold January DayRush kicks off its annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service, when students from the University's colleges participate in service events on their rare day off.
The types of patients that I see at Rush as a generalist obstetrician/gynecologist are, for the most part, obstetrical patients—patients that are pregnant. My role is to reassure the patient and guide them through that nine months and make sure that they’re feeling confident as they go from appointment to appointment.
It’s important, number one, to make the patient feel very comfortable. Number two, address their issue. And, number three, be accessible for their questions and for their concerns. And, I think once you develop that relationship, the patient feels comfortable with you and your decisions and your treatment guidance—and they come back and they remain your patient for a long time.
