I was given my appointment to another provider when I left, but the staff member never stopped talking to a co-worker. I was never informed that the appointment was at a different facility, namely Streetsboro. Would have been good information to have.

Very pleased with Dr. Walter and the office staff, and a student orthopedic doctor was able to get some experience by examining and questioning me prior to Dr. Walter coming in. The intra articular injection into my right thumb Dr. Walters gave me helped me immediately and the thumb splint helps during the day. I'm very glad I went to see him.

He was very helpful and very patient with my questions. I came in early to get an x-ray, which didn't happen until my appointment time, and the x-ray people had been in communication with the doctor so he knew I was coming. That was a big relief!

First time I've seen this doctor. Referral from my primary physician for a specific problem. He had my medical files. No reason to discuss my normal health problems.

Reviewed On 10/1/2021
This visit was to consider surgery for my issue. Dr Walter had my test results printed out, highlighting the important pieces and then explained what was going on by giving me an example I could understand. He reviewed the risks and benefits of treatment options. He was very respectful towards me. I feel extremely comfortable with my issues to be resolved in his care.

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, James Walter did not disclose any Outside Relationships with Industry.
