Dr. Reed and her NP Karen were very helpful. I have felt much better since my visit.
I have been a patient of Dr Reed for perhaps 15 years. She helped me more than at least 5 other neurologists did all together. It took me about an hour to drive to her office. She and her staff have always been excellent in every way! When she relocated to *** I did not hesitate to continue with her, even though it is about an hour drive in a different direction! I have encouraged so many people to go to her for their migraine care! Dr Reed and her staff are absolutely outstanding in every way! I have to say Dr Reed gave me hope and helped me find a way to live a fulfilling life by learning about, understanding and taking control of my migraines!
Dr. Deborah Reed is wonderful and has definitely improved my quality of life. I have recommended her to many friends.
I saw Dr. Reed at UH main campus. *** from her *** office was the one to schedule the next appointment. Lisa has been amazing. She is always so on top of everything and very kind.

Dr. Reed treats me for chronic migraines and is the very best of the many UH doctors I have visited. She listens and I always feel like she hears me. When she can, she helps or refers me regarding health issues beyond her specialty. (because she listens and seems to understand that it is all connected). Dr. Deborah Reed Is the best.
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.
