Dr. Grier is one of the best doctors I've ever seen in a long time. His caring approach to explain the problem and the solution to care for you is outstanding. I wish he was able to care for my back issues I just adore him. He really shows that he cares for you and listens to everything you say.

I am highly impressed with Dr. Grier's manner and approach to the patient. He knocked on the examining room door before entering. He greeted me pleasantly and asked what brings you here ***. His easy manner enables Doctor and patient to easily establish rapport. He listens and answers the questions you are asking in ordinary English. He explains his finding of your health concerns and notes his action plan to resolve the issue. He genuinely cares about the patient. Without question he is knowledgeable and shows confidence, which can be trusted.

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, Jordan Grier did not disclose any Outside Relationships with Industry.
