Dr Lui is absolutely incredible!! He really made us feel seen, heard, respected and cared for-- he was empathetic and loving. He took his time explaining things and alternatives and options. He is collaborative and patient. He explained his reasoning behind his thought process and prognosis. His PA *** was communicative and such a helpful advocate.

The patient service specialists at the front office window are always curt, crass and seem annoyed. We arrived early for our 1 o'clock spot, had to have an xray that they didn't call us back for 30 min and then we waited for Dr Liu. The people at the Westlake office just are never happy to wait on you. In contrast Emily Canitia is phenomenal as well as Noy. Dr liu is absolutely awesome even though he is so busy. His care never fails. I'm so glad he is the dr who cares for my daughter.

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.
