Great experience

Reviewed On 4/1/2023
Excellent provider; but he needs more support for his patients especially outside office hours or even during office hours. There does not seem be any way of communicating with the provider that is well-defined - not even email.

My visit with Dr. T was for a vasectomy. He and his staff were great. They were friendly and talked me through the whole process. The procedure was rather painless and simple.

The visit was efficient. The doctor discussed the results, any changes in them, and what needed to be done - and did not need to be done - going forward. My questions were answered. The doctor is fairly affable and, if a person needed a specialist in this area, and especially the niche areas in which he focuses, I recommend him.

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.
