I'm am very fortunate to have Dr Castro as my vascular surgeon. Because of a injury at CT scan in Geauga UH determined along with broken ribs. I have ascending aortic aneurysm. Thank you to the ER team at Geauga UH for discovering this Issue. I have seen Dr Castro 3 times since then. I am very confident in the future if I require further treatment. I definitely want Dr Castro to be the lead physician

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, Yulanka Castro Dominguez did not disclose any Outside Relationships with Industry.
