Dr Belkin is an outstanding physician. She has been my physician for over 25 years. She is knowledgeable, easy to talk too and explains everything in an understandable manner. The team at University Hospitals Department of Ophthalmology is excellent. I was impressed with the thorough initial evaluation by the Ophthalmology Medical Assistant. She was very kind and engaging, as well as clinically solid. They are fortunate to have Dr Belkin leading the team.

This was my first appointment with Dr. Belkin. It was made by UH Connect the day I called with a problem with my right eye. Dr. Belkin was very professional. She diagnosed my problem as a Sty and suggested I just use hot compresses. To call her after awhile if it did not help. I have been doing that and it has worked

I have nothing but high praise for this office beginning with the receptionist who greets you, to the meeting with the doctor and in-between with the other staff members who see me before seeing the doctor.

I have been going to Dr. Belkin for at least 15 years. Dr. Belkin has taken care of me with regular appointments and semi-urgent visits. One time when I was recovering from an illness and I had to have stitches removed, I was brought to the office via ambulance and I was on a gurney. The office staff made it as easy as possible while I waited.

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.
