The doctor was terrific! He explained things very well and the gal that took the cast off was very courtesy asking me if it was the first cast and did I know what to expect. She then explained how it would get taken off. From start to finish i had great care!

The staff was incredible, playing hide and seek and peek-a-boo with my daughter to help ease her nerves about having a broken collar bone. The doctor was confident, yet kind, clearly communicated what we needed to do and helped keep my daughter at ease. They were efficient and wonderfully pleasant. We couldn't have asked for a better experience!

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.
