Dr. Stein is an incredible doctor and because of this, I expected her to be busy and rushed and kind of short with me. She was the opposite, so incredibly caring, taking her time to listen to me. I'm very grateful.

Dr. Stein is one of the best Doctors I have ever had. She has the best bed-side manner of any Dr. I have seen. I feel she has a lot of compassion for her patients. She listens to everything I have to say. She explains things in a way that is easy to follow and understand. She never makes you feel like she is in a hurry to get to the next appointment. She takes her time with patients.

Dr. Stein is by far the most compassionate and caring Doctor I have ever been to. She explains things in a way that is easily understandable. She talks to you not at you.

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, Sharon Stein did not disclose any Outside Relationships with Industry.
