We trust Dr Hackenberg. He always answers questions with certainty and is always positively calculating with decision making. He always has our child's best interests and it shows. Even her hard to impress dad likes him a lot.

Dr Hackenberg is the best! I was anxious about an issue with my daughter and he spends the time to reassure you feel ok and calmed my nerves. [...] the MA who roomed her is great..always has a smile on her face and friendly! With three little ones we are there a lot, the office staff and Dr Hackenberg are exceptional!

I have been coming to this provider since birth. My experience has been great all these years. I only see my provider for annual wellness check ups. My health is excellent and I do take good care of myself throughout the year. I am an athlete so diet and exercise are very important to me. I would recommend my provider and this practice to future patients.

This was our first visit with this doctor. We were using a UH pedes practice in Solon and switched as this is much closer to our home and our favorite provider, moved out of state. We had a very good visit and I am glad we switched. We will continue to use them in the future.

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 Hackenberg did not disclose any Outside Relationships with Industry.
