I have a great deal of confidence inDr. Salata

The provider was dismissive of what I had to say. ***

Dr. Salata is an awesome physician. He made a hip arthroscopy procedure seem minor in comparison to other problems I've had this year ***. Somehow getting hip surgery is less painful and less inconvenient than those two problems ***. I think that speaks to his skill level and desire to provide exceptional care. I can't believe I'm post-op 23 days and almost feeling normal already. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs his services - they will be in great hands.

Great physician [...].

Reviewed On 1/17/2020
Provider could give more detailed information during exam about what he is doing and better explain the WHY behind the treatment plan. I felt encouraged to go along with it, but don't have any real reason why I am doing it. I am probably going to have to research the necessary information. [...]

I couldn't have more pleased with Dr Salata's knowledge, explanation and intial treatment.

Reviewed On 10/21/2019
Dr. Salata has an engaging demeanor and friendly personality, with apparently the scope of knowledge and expertise to be a great doctor. It is extremely unfortunate that for both appointments, I had to wait over an hour to see him, with no justifiable explanations, and then for only 10 minutes each, during which he checked his wristwatch. I specifically chose him for my knee injury, impressed by what I had read about him. However, since he is either feeling pressured not to spend time with his patients or prefers not to, I can only say that while he is apparently a good "technician," I haven't been given the opportunity to interact with him enough to judge him as a good doctor, which is someone who has or allows enough time to interact with his patients to assure them and answer their questions without feeling like they are under such a severe time constraint.

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.
