*** Dr Kelly has explained very well what's going on with my knee and how we're going to treat it. I'm completely comfortable with her care. She's fantastic.


Dr. Weiss-Kelly was absolutely wonderful and gave our daughter excellent care and helped get an MRI scheduled immediately and then a visit with a surgeon. We can't thank her enough for everything.


This was our first time visiting this office. The doctor and the resident in training were both excellent. They both explained things well and developed good rapport with ***.


Amanda weiss kelly is always the best, easy to talk to and very knowledgeable we would not go to anyone else for our sports med needs


Outstanding care was provided. Health care has improved 100% over past 10 yrs!


Beyond wonderful and helpful! Took care of the injury totally. So very grateful!


Everybody was wonderful


As always, our experience at Dr. Amanda Weiss-Kelley's office was top notch. She and her staff are the reason we leave ***; for our child to receive the high level care from UH. Thank you!


I have been seeing Dr. Weiss-Kelly for several years. She is thorough, explains what she sees on the xray's to me and discusses alternatives. She has a wonderful "bedside" manner and always takes the time she needs to make sure I understand the treatment plan.


She excellent doctor.


Excellent doctor! Connects with patient and parents.


Great experience.


Dr Weiss-Kelly connected beautifully with my 17-year old son and offered sound advice re his sports-related injury.

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.
