Great Doctor. Keeps me well informed concerning my condition and future procedures to keep me healthy.


Dr. Emily Steinhagen-Golbig was exceptional in handling my case on all fronts. Her staff was extremely helpful, kind, and understanding of my health situation. During the first visit, Dr. Steinhagen diagnosed my issue and recommended the outpatient procedure, which was scheduled within 3-weeks of the first visit. 6 weeks later, this follow-up visit was also very pleasant, especially when Dr. Steinhagen respected my request not to probe the treated area, as I felt It was still healing. The surgical team on the day of the procedure was again, exceptionally understanding, and sensitive to my anxieties, and kept me calm and answered every question and concern I had as they were preparing me for the surgical procedure.Thank you all for the excellent caring service you provided in treating my issue.


Dr. Steinhagen was extremely professional and supportive. She provided me with all the information I needed to get through my surgery. She provided excellent support after the surgery. She has helped me through a very difficult time.


I give high praise to the doctor and her staff. Going thru cancer isn't easy but she has helped me alot especially with my fears.


Dr Steinhagen was great and her nurse *** went above and beyond she answered numerous phone calls from me and was always very nice!!


Dr. Steinhagen is a wonderful doctor and is very thorough and knowledgeable. She does an amazing job at explaining and preparing the patient for treatments and surgery, as well as preparing for the next stages of wellness and recovery. Dr. Steinhagen' care and compassion and dedication for making her patients well again gave me the confidence to trust her judgment and decisions regarding my health. She is an amazing Surgeon and her medical team is amazing.

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.
