The entire experience at the hospital and the doctors' office was awesome. There wasn't an additional appointment made because I had to go for an MRI first. I then had to make another appointment to see him. When I say that the entire experience was awesome, I can honestly say that everyone that I dealt with including clerks, nurse, doctors were very pleasant and helpful. I even commented to my wife, this is the happiest bunch of people I've ever dealt with.

Reviewed On 4/1/2021
I had an outstanding orthopedic consult with Dr. Goodfellow. He asked pertinent questions, and asked me to explain what was wrong and how I was feeling. He then examined me thoroughly and went through my imaging slowly while ensuring that I understood the mechanics of my shoulder joint, and pinpointed the potential sources of my pain and discomfort. He then said that he would collaborate with my doctor here at the *** to get an updated MRI to ensure accurate diagnosis and treatment planning. I am very thankful for his approach to medicine, lack of patient bias, and professionalism. Thank you.

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, Donald Goodfellow did not disclose any Outside Relationships with Industry.
