My new cardiologist was very attentive, patient, active listener, clarified information for me and welcomed any further questions or calls that I may have. If any major concerns, call to make an appointment as soon as possible. I would recommend her to other people.

Reviewed On 12/1/2022
This was my appointment for a checkup on my heart. I saw the first nurse and after taking my blood pressure, we went over all my prescriptions and any refills I would need. Another nurse then came in to do my EKG. Shortly thereafter Dr. Farah came in. All three were very informed and pleasant. I have only good feelings about going to see this doctor or any of his staff.

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.
