Patient Experience Reviews

5.0 out of 5
- based on 33 Ratings

Dr. Hejal admitted me in consult with my cardiologist and actually saved my life.


I had seen Dr. Hejal about 5 years ago and was so impressed with my care that I was willing to wait over 2 months to be seen by her again. I have valued her thoroughness, her ability to listen to my concerns and provide me with clear and useful information.


Dr. Hejal is the best pulmonologist I have had since my chronic condition was diagnosed *** years ago. *** She always explains findings on physical exam, shows me latest radiology studies and makes me aware of the reasons for plans going forward. In the rare event I have to call her office between appointments she always gets back to me promptly.

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.
