I am so thankful for Doctor Baskin ***. The are knowledgeable, kind and professional. They truly care about their patients,
Dr. Gorodeski-Baskin is the best. I started seeing her when she was at *** and I was happy when I found that she came to UH. She pays attention and she listens to me. She was the only doctor out of several that was willing to change my meds when I told her I was having side effects which is why I went outside of UH and how I came to find her.
Dr Gorodeski is the best!! I followed her from her practice at the Clinic to her practice at UH.
Dr Gorodeski is awesome. She is kind, but also holds you to your goals. She is an excellent listener and motivator. I have been steadily losing weight since my involvement with her and fully expect to continue to do so. Her nutritionist *** is very knowledgeable and is also a very good teacher. This whole experience has been a positive one for me, and I'm looking forward to less weight and more energy.
She was awesome
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.
