I have been EXTREMELY HAPPY with the recommendation of Dr. Harth, PA's, Assistants & Staff. My appointment on the *** was going to be canceled due to an emergency that Dr. Harth was called upon . . . *** was able to reschedule it later that day, which I was VERY THANKFUL, due to the fact that I was having discomfort in my left leg. ***


Dr Harth is a wonderful physician and is a wonderful understanding person. I asked her opinion on the best thing to do and she advised me like family. She let me know that if I needed her in the future she would be here for me.


Dr. Harem was very professional and thorough in her examination. She offered explanations of the what the tests to be scheduled entailed. She also explained what the procedures would entail if the tests indicated that I needed those procedures.


Dr. Harth has always been a very good listener. She has always tried to help the conditions I have presented to her.


Very good


Very professional and informative.


I felt that I received the best care from the entire team.


This was a very caring and friendly office. All staff were very concerned about my comfort during the procedure I was having. They constantly asked if I was okay and comfortable. Very impressed!


I came to Dr. Harth for a second opinion because the *** said there was nothing they could do about my condition. I was vey pleased with both Dr. Harth and ***. They explained things to me very well and took the time to answer my questions. My wife and I both commented on how professional and thorough they were. Thank you.


Very satisfied with the overall experience. 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.
