The care provider was excellent. No other staff was working in the office that day. Dr. Garner did everything and did it well.

Dr. Garner provided excellent care to my infant son, ***, as always. I especially appreciate the time he spends answering my questions, regarding how to progress with the baby's diet, sleep, and development in the months leading up to the next appointment. I'd also like to acknowledge the nurse who collected the baby's growth stats and administered his vaccinations. She is wonderful with my baby and very skilled at giving his shots as quickly as possible to minimize his stress. The office staff are very helpful and courteous. The wait time to reach the office over the phone is consistently longer than I'd hope for. I understand that staffing is a current issue, but perhaps an option for a callback would be helpful, when wait times are at a high level. Thanks!

Dr. Garner understands me as an individual and lets me know what to expect. He told me what to expect at my visit next year since I'm going to be close to puberty. ***

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.
