Good experience


I'm very happy with this provider and have mad her my permanent dictor.


*** I love the provider. ***


I am very pleased with this new doctor (for me). She came highly recommended from my personal physician when my original cardiologist moved away. I feel that between the both of them, I remain in very good hands possibly for the rest of my life.


Good experience


Very good care


She always runs an hour late for her appointments and this is unacceptable and no one gives updates so I just sit in the office and wait. It does not make me feel like my visit or time is important. She a good doctor but this is not a good impression to give your patients.


First visit with a cardiologist. She listened to me, explained everything and frequently asked if I had any questions. It was a good experience for a first visit with a cardiologist.




Good people


The best


Excellent care




I was very satisfied with the experience I had with my provider.

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.
