Dr. Cohen-Levy allayed my most immediate concern about the arthritis in my knee. He explained in detail the x-rays (which were part of my appointment). Showing specific differences between my knees was helpful to understand the specific pain in my left knee. He assured me that it was too early to consider surgery since my condition did not hinder my life and activity levels. He made suggestions to ease some of the discomfort. The visit was very reassuring.

Very helpful to my concerns of paid and the needed surgery. His knowledge and understanding gives a patient comfort when knowing surgery is needed. Just wish the surgery schedule was not so backed up.

Doctor Cohen-Levy took the time to explain the operation with me and he made me feel very comfortable about the surgery. He also called to checkup to see how I was feeling and I never had a doctor checkup on me. He is an excellent doctor and he has good bedside manners. I wish everyone had a doctor/surgeon like Dr. Cohen. If you need any further feedback from me please don't hesitate to contact me.

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.
