I appreciate the great effort Dr. Duffy takes to help me understand my condition and treatment plan. The dignity and respect I feel when seen by him is so beneficial to me. It takes a brilliant man to explain things so clearly and a kind and humble man to raise up his patient's spirit and confidence when dealing with such a challenge.

I sure hope UH realizes what an exceptional doctor you have on board - he listens, he is kind and occasionally funny. He went over my brain scans with me, making sure I knew just what was going on in my brain. He explained what is going on now and what lies ahead. He never speaks to me as if I could not understand - of course I am not his equal intellectually but somehow in his own unique way he makes me feel part of the team. Most importantly, when I leave an appointment I know I am in really good hands. Please don't make him mad - this guy is most definitely a "keeper"!!!

As an elderly male feeling confused, fearful, and diminished by my ***, I felt truly seen and heard by Dr. Duffy. He had the skills and took the time to establish an authentic doctor-patient relationship as he conducted his assessment. This was of great benefit to me and my family and to the "student" who had the opportunity to observe and learn from such a knowledgeable and caring doctor.

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, Charles Duffy did not disclose any Outside Relationships with Industry.
