my experience with Doctor Shenk and his staff has been very satisfying. Dr. Shenk has treated me with respect and kindness. during my first surgery, he was there when I woke up and walked with me back to my room. His concern for me was very evident My husband and I had a trip planned and Dr. Shenk and his office staff worked to make my appointments meet our needs. I realize I am not his only patient but he and his staff made me feel that I was!

Very good Dr and very infomative.

Reviewed On 2/1/2021
Dr. Shenk was wonderful - he makes you feel confident in his knowledge and experience. He was very patient as I've had LOTS of questions and lot of information needed in order to make a surgery decision. I was unable to really decide even after several weeks of additional appointments, talking to various people and internet searches and finally made my decision based on my faith in him and his team. He also has an awesome secretary, *** - very warm and welcoming. You NEVER feel like you are calling too often and she gets things taken care of immediately! The whole team was great through a very difficult few months.

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.
