excellent. I am a new patient and saw him twice over 3 days which he did an initial assessment and blood tests and procedures. He was excellant. He was not aware that I was physician and had practiced family practice and geriatrics for 30 years until the end of our last visit. I was very impressed with his general manner , history taking ,physical exam , explanation and plan.

Dr. Geiger is amazing!! He is extremely smart, caring, kind and professional. He took his time with me and made sure all my questions were answered. He was, by far, the most thorough physician I've ever seen. His warmth and calm reassurance gave me total confidence in his care. I can't say enough great things about him and wish that he could be PCP!! Thank you Dr. Geiger for everything!!! You are truly the best.

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.
