Megan Huisingh-Scheetz, MD

Associate Professor of Medicine

My name is Megan Huisingh-Scheetz. I'm a geriatrician at the University of Chicago. Geriatricians are doctors who take care of people who are 65 and older.

I chose to become a physician because I had a really close relationship with my parents and my grandparents and I wanted to make sure that they had a good end of life, really happy end of life. And so I thought if I became a doctor I could help make sure that happened. I grew up in a rural town and I learned a lot of lessons there that I take with me in my practice of geriatrics.

The first is a really strong sense of community. The third lesson I took from growing up in a rural area is a really deep off for life. Every moment that we have with patients is a chance to be a better person, to love, to care, to be kind, and not to take those moments for granted.

I have added training in clinical research, and I feel my research gives me an opportunity to help address some of the problems my older patients face every day to maintain their happiness and their functional well-being. So for me being able to pair clinical care with clinical research, that is a tool to really address their needs. On a larger scale is extremely powerful.

Why does this provider not have a star rating?

Our goal is to provide our patients and visitors with correct and useful information. We only post provider satisfaction information from clinic surveys when they are returned from patients.

This provider has not had surveys returned that meet the necessary sample size

About Our Star Ratings and Comments:

Randomly selected patients are sent patient satisfaction surveys after their visits. We get thousands of survey responses each year. The responses are used to improve patient experience and recognize staff members for the care they provide. Patient survey responses are also used to make star ratings for each provider.

For the star ratings and comments, all feedback on the provider web page is posted as it was given from patients. Comments that do not apply, risk patient privacy, or are not appropriate are not posted. Star ratings and comments come from a number of survey questions. A star rating is not given if a provider only has a small number of survey responses.
