Reviewed On 10/1/2020
The staff tried very hard to comfort and distract the very unhappy patient. This was his first time at a different location and he was having a difficult day to begin with. Knowing that he was upset, Dr. Woo worked quickly and efficiently as she knew she didn't have too much time to examine him. She was able to share information after the exam was over and when my son was a little more calm knowing he was done being seen.

Dr. Woo is an excellent health care professional. She listened to my concerns and really took time to explain to me why she thinks my son had the symptoms he was experiencing. She also explained any follow up care that might be necessary if his symptoms continue. I give her my highest recommendation.

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.
