Dr. Salata was excellent and took the time to listen to our daughter and explain all of her treatment options. Although the hour wait time wasn't ideal, Dr. Salata was worth the wait.

Dr Salada and his fellow did a very nice job. They actually followed up a day later to make sure I was aware of another condition which they spotted on the xray to make sure I was aware of the issue. I am already being treated for the other issue but I was impressed they caught it and notified me. Well done.

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, Michael Salata did not disclose any Outside Relationships with Industry.
