Dr P is a wonderful empathetic physician. I feel comfortable with his recommendations. as a retired nurse of 50+ years, I am impressed that Dr P calls me personally if there is a concern regarding my lab results requiring a RX change. The office staff is friendly and efficient. I have recommended Dr P to several people.

This was my initial visit with Dr. Perhala . He came highly recommended and I was extremely satisfied. Initially I was anxious . He was very kind, professional, thorough, and presented as very knowledgeable. He allowed as much time as I needed and answered all questions and concerns. I would rate a 10 out of 10 in establishing my trust.

Always a good experience with this provider. Generally cares about his patient and sits and explains everything in regards to how I'm feeling and what the plan is for me.

[...] i am really appreciative of how this visit went. I actually felt like he was listening to me and wanted to figure out what was going on. It's sad to say but I don't think a lot of patients feel that way any more with doctors. I actually cried when I walk out from being thankful that there was finally a doctor who cared and wanted to help and had a plan.

I went to seeDr. Perhala as a second opinion and ended up making him my regular rheumatologist. His office staff are wonderful, I've never waited more than 10 minutes in the lobby and they get back to me quickly when I call with any medical issues. They have made it much easier to deal with my PsA.

Dr. Perhala's Support Staff are always very kind and personable. Dr. Perhala, himself, is always very compassionate, kind, and empathetic. He arrives moments after his assistant leaves the exam room. He always LISTENS to me and waits for me to articulate when my mind searches for words and he waits PATIENTLY. He is a rarity in this field and I am grateful to have found him. He knows what he is doing and he truly has made headway in helping me feel healthier in a situation I once felt hopeless in.

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, Robert Perhala did not disclose any Outside Relationships with Industry.
