Really awesome experience with Dr. Gardner. *** He provided great advice and then I was happily surprised that Dr. Gardner also called me the following morning to check in. Really showed me he cares about his patients.

We absolutely LOVE Dr. Garner and trust he has our son's entire health: holistically, mentally, physically, and emotionally in mind. He gives meaningful and understandable advice to us as new parents.

Dr. Garner has been my son's pediatrician from the first visit after he was out of the hospital. He was excellent in speaking to my husband and I, and has continued to be as my son has grown. He is respectful of my son, and truly knows him as an individual, even in years when it's only been one visit other than his wellness visits. He's careful to explain things to my son with his health, takes an interest in how he is in school, and learn about my son's passions. He makes sure his social/emotional skills are progressing, not just looking at the academics. My son *** likes Dr. Garner and trusts him to take care of him. And the staff are outstanding as well. The few times my son was sick when he was younger, and we needed to see another physician in the practice to get in in a timely manner, they were also very good. Grateful to have this practice, and university Hospitals, in our area. (It's well worth the half hour drive to see Dr. Garner. I've recommended him to friends who are unhappy with their pediatrician because he's so good at what he does.)

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.
