This visit was a post-op follow up as I had some concerns about surgical outcomes....Dr. Sammarco patiently answered all my questions and discussed options and as usual, was willing to include me in decision making. This is a great office all the way around - good people...a definite asset to your health system.

The MD was excellent, however, scheduling made me an appointment with the wrong doctor (which they told me after my visit). I had to make an appointment with another urologist so I can get my DiVa treatment. Poor communication in the scheduling center. Cannot get my phone calls returned to confirm that my second MD appointment will actually provide me the treatment that the first MD cleared me for - very frustrating. Central scheduling is a nightmare. It's impossible to speak to anyone in the actual doctor office.

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.
