Clinical Services at Rush Comments from Patients

We recently sent an anonymous survey to our patients to receive feedback about the care they are receiving from our CIMP team. Here are some of their comments:

What are the primary reasons you are incorporating integrative medicine into your health care?

  • "Due to cancer treatment, I had lost weight. I needed help on getting good nutrition.  The session was very informative. It helped me understand/clarify a few things and understand the importance of a good diet."
  • "I strongly believe in Western medicine, but also recognize the benefits of other services. Eating had become very difficult and I just know nutritional counseling could help."
  • "Traditional Western medicine is too narrow. Limited (in) scope to effectively address multiple post-cancer treatment challenges."

  • "I am a former bone marrow transplant patient and generally don't feel well. I was looking to be a little proactive concerning this and through the Internet found your program. I chose yours over others I researched because of the Rush location and affiliation to the bone marrow center."

  • "I believe in treating the whole person. Western/traditional medicine does not always address all the needs. Any tools I can use to be well, I welcome."

  • "I am interested in non-traditional methods of controlling menopausal symptoms (since I am no longer able to take estrogen)."

Please share feedback regarding the friendliness, courtesy, and knowledge of the Cancer Integrative Medicine Program (CIMP) staff.

  • "I have experienced uniformly excellent services from all of the practitioners at the center. I am very pleased with all that I have received."

  • "The nutritionist was very informative and completely thorough with my particular nutritional concerns."

  • "I am deeply impressed with the CIMP and look forward to its continued growth and expansion. As an RN at Rush, I recommended this service to patients. I didn't anticipate that I would need these services myself. I look forward to sharing my many positive experiences with others." 

  • "The services and knowledge of CIMP staff is excellent!"

  • "The acupuncturist is a gifted healing practitioner and I felt significant results after three sessions. I am learning from the practitioner and I am grateful to have such an amazing [integrative] treatment available."
