The pulmonary doctor was very respectful, kind and understanding to my health

Reviewed On 8/1/2023
I have been VERY satisfied with my experiences with Dr. Faress and would recommend her highly to anyone needing pulmonary care. However my last visit was rushed and did not allow time to discuss my concerns and I waited 35 minutes in the examination room to see the doctor. Very, very unusual with this usually caring provider!

Reviewed On 4/1/2023
Doctor Faress was focused on me and my needs. She explained my lung condition to me with medication options and written drug information. We reviewed the various possible side effects of both drugs together. I have a follow-up appointment with Dr. Faress.

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, Jihane Faress did not disclose any Outside Relationships with Industry.
