Dr Zanotti and his team are fantastic. But the people that check you I'm not so much there is always like 5-8 people sitting there yet you are left standing there waiting to get checked in and a lot of the time it ends up past your appt time and you come like 15mins early like they ask you too, it's like your standing there and all those people behind the desk make it seem like your invisible!!!!

Dr. Zanotti has be scheduled for a knee replacement. I feel as if more information should be provided ahead of time about the surgery. My pre-op appointment is just one day before the surgery and I feel ill-informed about the process.

I had no trouble getting my initial appointment, but did wait almost an hour past my scheduled time. I did go and ask about why the delay since no one came to me. Dr. Zanotti took the time explaining my foot issues , care etc. the first time. The second visit I was seem by a NP then by Dr. Zanotti who gave a quick over view of what was happening and what to expect done the road. I do not know if he had my medical records as we did not go through health issues etc. Over all I am pleased by by experience with Dr. Zanotti & the staff. [...]

I have been seeing Dr. Robert Zanotti on and off for years as shoulder problems resurface. There have been times when there is an extremely long wait in the waiting room. That seems to have improved, and though I may not have been seen within 15 minutes, it was not a real long time beyond that. I am very happy with the treatment I have received from Dr. Robert Zanotti and trust his advice.

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.
