I was totally happy with my first visit with Dr. Arafah and team. He made sure I understood my condition and answered questions. Dr Arafah picked up two conditions that I wasn't aware of. After my visit and lab work the follow up was outstanding.

I have seen Dr Arafah before a few years ago for my medical condition. He is absolutely the best endocrinologist I have ever met. He is extremely knowledgeable, he listens carefully to everything you have to say, examines you carefully, ask the appropriate questions. He has excellent bedside manner, he is caring, calming and has a comforting personality that make you feel so well cared for. I refuse to see anybody else, because had very poor providers in past managing my condition. He help me and made possible for me to have a healthy pregnancy and baby despite my thyroid condition. He is amazing!! There is not enough words to describe how much I appreciate his care and everything he has done for me!

Dr. Arafah is SO smart, astute, observant and truly cares about his patients. His expertise, research, focus in nuance and detail makes him truly exceptional in endocrinology and the medical field overall. He has tremendous recall about his patients and is able to explain medical details so that patients understand their condition and can positively and effectively partner in their care.

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.
