NEW Center of Excellence: Ryan Jacobson MD, Rush University, Chicago IL

 

Hi, Dr. Jacobson!

Tell us about yourself?

I am a neuromuscular specialist at Rush University in Chicago. I completed my neurology and neuromuscular training at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Michigan. In addition to my clinical practice, I am very involved in the education of residents and fellows here at Rush.

Why is CMT your passion?

I really enjoy working with people with CMT. They tend to be engaged, motivated, and knowledgeable. Each individual is a different and we learn a great deal from our patients in this field. There is also a lot of ongoing research with the possibility of exciting new treatments in the near future. The basic science of these diseases is also fascinating. 

Tell us what patients will experience when they come to your center?

Rush University is a large, urban academic medical center but we take a very personalized approach to make sure every person is heard and their unique situation appreciated. We are responsive to every patient’s needs and questions.  We also strongly believe in multidisciplinary care for CMT, and engage a wide range of therapists and experts in this process.

What do you love most about your practice?

Our practice here at Rush gives us the opportunity to partner with patients to make a positive impact on their lives.
