About Our Survey

At University Hospitals, we believe in providing patients with all the information they need to make educated decisions about their health care and to choose the right doctor to meet their needs. That is why we partner with the independent patient satisfaction company Press Ganey to survey patients about their experiences at UH facilities and with UH physicians. We hold ourselves to the highest standards of care and are dedicated to creating a positive patient experience for every individual who sees a UH doctor.

Patient Comments

Reviewed on 7/5/2017
I can not envision a more appropriate and productive visit the way things were explained and my options presented, gave me and my wife confidence that whatever was happening we would at least have the answers we were seeking. I was not given unrealistic hope or a reason to panic, my mental and emotional needs seemed to be understood and addressed as well , I was considerably discouraged up to this point.

I get along well with this doctor. Although I have no formal medical training, during four decades with this condition I have gained an intimate knowledge of it from first-hand experience that I have supplemented by additional research. He can speak to me almost as a colleague, without 'dumbing-down' any of what he says as though I might not otherwise understand. I appreciate that as well as his empathy for what I go through with this condition and the effect it has had on my life both at present and during these last forty years. It is a distinct contrast to the attitude shown me by some other doctors I have dealt with over the years. Finding a doctor like that is not as easy as finding a well-fitting pair of shoes. This is the kind of doctor you stick with-and who sticks with you.

I have had only 2 visits with the doctor. The first was a second opinion. At which time he not only explained my condition, he also drew a diagram of what I was experiencing. The second appt. was a follow up for test result he had ordered. Although I am still getting to know Dr.Syed I am very pleased with him. He and his staff took the time explaining and was very respectful of me and my feeling .

Industry Relationships

University Hospitals is committed to transparency in our interactions with industry partners, such as pharmaceutical, biotech, or medical device companies. At UH, we disclose practitioner and their family members’ ownership and intellectual property rights that are or in the process of being commercialized. In addition, we disclose payments to employed practitioners of $5,000 or more from companies with which the practitioners interact as part of their professional activities. These practitioner-industry relationships assist in developing new drugs, devices and therapies and in providing medical education aimed at improving quality of care and enhancing clinical outcomes. At the same time, UH understands that these relationships may create a conflict of interest. In providing this information, UH desires to assist patients in talking with their practitioners about industry relationships and how those relationships may impact their medical care.

UH practitioners seek advance approval for certain new industry relationships. In addition, practitioners report their industry relationships and activities, as well as those of their immediate family members, to the UH Office of Outside Interests annually. We review these reports and implement management plans, as appropriate, to address conflicts of interest that may arise in connection with medical research, clinical care and purchasing decisions.

As of December 31, 2015, Tanvir Syed, MD did not disclose any Outside Relationships with Industry.
