Dr Hirsh saw that my BP was low and sent me to the ER. He went down to the ER prior to me getting there to brief the ER docs on my condition. His attention to his patients is the best

I have been seeing Dr. Hirsh for a long time now. He is very pro-active in patient care. Whenever I or my husband have a concern, no matter how minor, he listens carefully and always recommends a course of action. Whether it be a follow-up appointment or a referral to a specialist, there is no "wait & see." That kind of approach instills a sense of confidence that Dr. Hirsh has our best interests at heart. This instills in us a sense of accountability with regards to our routine exams.

I was hesitant about joining the UH Select program again, since I felt the first year we didn't quite have that patient/doctor relationship. I am a breast cancer survivor, so I need or wanted a physician that will follow my health and be concerned when I am concerned of my health problems. I don't want to see a PA or NP, I want to see a physician, [...]. My recent visits I have definitely felt more comfortable and believe he is watching and listening to my concerns.

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.
