Great visit all the way through

The doctor didn't allow me to ask any questions, either to make sure I understood things or to see if I had any other concerns. He was actually halfway out the door as he gave final instructions. My spouse was with me and neither of us had ever experienced anything like it. I never even had a chance during the exam to fully explain what my concerns were.

Dr. Marcus is a class act. He has a fun bed side manner and is very personable. He did both of my parents knee replacements and he was glad mine were WAY better than my parents :) He explained what was wrong and advised that Cortisone would do the trick and get me running again. Resting as prescribed and starting to run next week again!

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.

As of December 31, 2016, Randall Marcus did not disclose any Outside Relationships with Industry.
