Dr Armitage was excellent. He took his time with us and explained the steps he was taking to try to resolve my brother's recurring uti's.


Dr. Armitage is wonderful, this is the first time I had seen him and I would 10/10 recommend him to anyone that needed to be seen by his specialty. His nurse was absolutely wonderful as well.


The doctor is very professional


I had extremely good experience with my care and provider


Dr. Armitage is an extraordinary doctor. He is not only kind and concerned about health but explained everything in a way that was very easy to understand and made clear to me the situation which up to then I hadn't realized. I was very impressed with both his wonderful manner and his knowledge and expertise.


Many thanks to Dr. Armitage and his staff.

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, 2016, Keith Armitage did not disclose any Outside Relationships with Industry.
