Dr. ohliger has been my primary care physician since 1989-90. He has navigated me thru some challenging situations. He continues to be on top of managing my medical condition [...] and many years back noticed a mark on my face which turned out to be melanoma skin cancer. I was referred to dermatology and fast tracked for surgical removal of the suspected area. Dr. Ohliger is very conscientious, listens attentively, and is very thorough. He also provides great advice which has kept me grounded.

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, James Ohliger did not disclose any Outside Relationships with Industry.
