On occasion we have a longer than expected wait in the lobby. This was the case on this visit, but it wasn't more than 20-25 min. The time Dr Garner spends w/ us is always very thorough and I never feel he acts rushed. I appreciate this greatly. I am beyond happy with all aspects of this practice...excellent staff all around from office to nurses to doctors. Truly an exceptional group.

We love Dr Garner! He is always very patient and considerate of us. He takes the time to answer all our questions and never makes us feel stupid. As new parents I usually have a list of questions so this nice to know that he will sit down with us and make sure we understand everything before we leave the office.

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.
