Dr. Weiss Kelly was by far the best sports medicine doc we've seen. Far more engaged with a more thorough exam than anyone at *** we've seen.

Dr. Amanda Weiss Kelly is an asset to UH!!! I have been seeing her for many years, mostly for sports related injuries. Sometimes a few years go by with no visits. No matter how much time has passed between visits, at every appointment, Dr. Weiss Kelly is updated on my past injuries and ready to discuss the current issue. She is present and gives me her full attention. She is always pleasant and never makes me feel rushed. Most importantly, she is an excellent physician and I have 100% confidence in her medical advice and treatments.

She was great with my 14 year old son ***. She had to deliver the devastating news that he couldn't play hockey for 8-12 weeks. She did so with empathy but firmness and helped him understand the reason for that length of time. Hockey means so much to him and I think he accepted the news pretty well because of her compassion and clarity.

We have seen Dr. Weiss Kelly 3 times for different sports related injuries and each time we have received excellent 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, Amanda Weiss Kelly did not disclose any Outside Relationships with Industry.
