Dr. Brown was interested in what I had to say and answered all my questions. My vitals were checked and she listened to my breathing to check to see if my lungs were clear. She cared about my progress. It was an excellent follow up exam

Dr Brown is one of the best providers I have seen. She is so kind and so smart. The procedure I had done was so scary but she was always informative and I felt like she was on my side. Made me feel like she cared about me as an individual. I would absolutely recommend Dr Brown to my family or anyone else in need of a surgery.

Dr. Brown is the best. It was a comfort to see her doing my emergency procedure. Her whole staff put me at ease in a time of uncertainty.

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.
