Dr. Potoczak is truly an asset to any and every office where he works. He's truly the only doctor I've ever seen where I've felt heard and cared about. I've been seeing him for 90% of my life and I NEVER plan on changing providers. He listens. He cares. He understands. He does everything he can to make sure you're concerns are addressed and wants to ensure you know that he's going to take care of you. He is truly one of a kind.

I've never had a doctor treat me with such care and respect before. Dr. Potoczak is the most down to earth caring physician I've ever had care for me. He sits down when we talk, he engages with me, he actually listens when I talk and he interacts with me to make sure I am completely comfortable before I leave. Fantastic physician!

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, Douglas Potoczak did not disclose any Outside Relationships with Industry.
