Dr Malone is an expert in his field, well-respected by other doctors. As a physician myself, this is why I chose to see him specifically - not only is he respected for his technical skill and knowledge, but he also has a reputation for a kind bedside manner. Though I had never personally met him until this visit, I can now agree with colleagues that he has earned this stellar reputation - he was accommodating, patient, careful with my pain when examining me, went through my MRI with me, and answered my questions thoroughly. I will definitely recommend him to future patients if they need a hand surgeon.

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.
