It was an excellent appointment and time well spent.




Dr Killeen and his staff are always very pleasant and caring


Everything was pleasant, professional, easy, and just the way I want to be treated.


He is very professional and human.


Extremely satisfied with both the doctor and staff


Overall experience was great




Dr. Killeen is the best doctor and surgeon. I am very lucky to be under his care.


It was an early morning appointment but Dr. Killeen came into room nearly 45 minutes after the appointment time. I do understand things can come up and make a provider run behind schedule. In his defense, he did spend a great deal of time with me and maybe he does so with other patients which is why he was running late. That was very much appreciated. My only suggestion to him as well as other providers who are very late for appointments would be to at least acknowledge that and apologize when coming In.


All were as always EXCELLENT AND PROFESSIONAL. Even the Receptionist was kind, smiled and very accomodating to everyone.


D. Killeen was thorough; required 3 more special tests to ascertain my general good health & then a balance test to determine which ear most needed the cochlear Implant; Kind, caring, & great personality, UH staff also kind & efficient.


Dr. Killeen is very caring doctor and I am very pleased with him and his nurses


I'm very happy with the care I get at UH and I tell everyone about it.


An excellent physician visit overall. Dr Kileen was very thorough and, as always, treated me with the utmost respect. Explained all regarding my condition and treatment and further steps.


Very good doctor.

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.
