Excellent Doctor and staff

Reviewed On 11/1/2022
Dr Linz is by far one of the most knowledgable, compassionate, and outstanding doctors I have ever seen. He truly cares for his patients, and not just at the ailment he has treated but for the whole person.I am forever grateful he was the doctor on call the night my obstruction landed my in the emergency room. I am alive today because of him. He was also the doctor on call when my gall bladder was inflamed. I was scheduled for surgery and waiting in the emergency room (yes again) Dr Linz saw it was me and between his other patients stopped to check on me.I can not say enough wonderful things about this man

This was my first visit with Dr. Linz. My wife and I were very impressed with his meticulous and careful approach in the practice of medicine. He observed discrepancies between his observations during his examination and the PET scan results, and correctly decided to consult a radiologist before proceeding further.

I waited an hour in the exam room and no one ever came in to say the doctor was delayed.

I feel that good prudent clinical advice and direction was given. I was impressed that, as a surgeon, he was not just interested in "doing a surgery," rather he was keenly focused on my overall health presentation and how to BEST get me ready for a needed surgery, as I have other complications. I respect this highly. He also immediate began communication with my other team members to help facilitate my need care.

Dr. Linz was absolutely wonderful. He listened to my complicated medical history, acknowledged my concerns, answered all of my questions and made me feel comfortable with what the plan was going forward. Not at anytime did I feel rushed during the appt. His staff was equally as excellent and helpful, all showing genuine concern.

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.
