The wait time became irrelevant when it was clear that the doctor spent as much time as necessary and did not rush during my appointment. Something must give with busy doctors. Either you have to wait a little or be rushed through an appointment, or wait months to get an appointment (the waits are already long.) Please explain this to people...)

Dr. Semaan is a very nice man. He is a professional but he never makes you feel like what you say matters. He clearly cares about your health, in this case, hearing.

My Audiologist recommended I see Dr Semaan to get confirmation that my hearing loss cannot be helped with hearing aid or cochlear implant due to permanent auditory nerve damage. I was relieved to get an explanation from Dr Semaan who explained my type of hearing loss is 2% of his patients with my type of hearing loss. I am glad to have met Dr Semaan. He is an excellent listener and extremely knowledgeable and straightforward. I highly recommend Dr Semaan for complicated hearing loss. If you are in need for professional medical advice, this is definitely the Go To Doctor.

My experience with Dr. Semaan has been excellent from first meeting with him. He was recommended by my ENT. I also did further research prior to my surgery. I had never had any type of major surgery. In my initial appointment with him, he was very informative and explained everything very thoroughly. I know he is a very knowledgeable and talented physician based on his experience and credentials. I felt very confident that he knew what he was doing. This was a very delicate surgery. I was very nervous and he, along with his staff were very patient with me the day of my surgery as well as follow up. I would highly recommend Dr. Semaan!

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.
