l was referred to this specialist for a recently diagnosed medical issue, he took the time to explain my condition using an anatomical model, it's risks, medication to control the risks, and my options moving forward. He took the time to ensure I completely understood my options and the short and long term health issues of each. With my input we decided on an option that was best for me, moving forward l scheduled a procedure I felt was best for my condition. Throughout this visit I felt this doctor took the time to explain issues to me so I clearly understood them.

Great doctor. Takes the time to answer all questions, listens to my ideas and considers them and makes changes in treatment when they are correct. Office staff answers the phone or returns calls promptly. Unusual for most doctors offices. I Think the doctor may have saved my life. I will refer others to his care if appropriate Very satisfied!

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.
