Dr. Blumenthal was so refreshingly articulate and explained things about what was going on in my wrist and hand that I was delighted. It reminded me of what real HEALERS, called to this profession shold be...like him. *** Dr B is exceptional. I am blessed to have found him. He called me to let me know the results of my test and asked me if there were any questions, referred me to a surgeon for a consult and was going to do it for me as well. I have the next step and I know what to do. THANK YOU!

Dr. Blumenthal is the best rheumatologist I've seen in my long life of having RA. His knowledge of the disease is unparalleled and he also understands the psychological impact of the disease. He is compassionate and understanding. He takes his time to address all questions and tailors treatment to each individual.

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, David Blumenthal did not disclose any Outside Relationships with Industry.
