Our last visit was done over a tele doctor application. It was amazing. It was nice to be able to see our doctor during these crazy times and our doctor wasn't even in the office. It was very comforting to be able to communicate with our provider with everything going on.

We absolutely LOVE Dr. Kannensohn. He tells it like it is, clearly, and answers all questions. He also respects *** and his autism. He speaks to *** so that he feels like he is the patient and this helps *** to learn how to take charge of his health.

Dr. K is a good mix of integrative medicine offering and listening to different approaches in healthcare. Wish more medical staff were as open as he is.

This Doctor is not our primary physician. our daughter was very sick , needed medicalattention and our primary was not in the office. I felt the doctor talked down to me as I was trying to explain my concerns for our child's health. I do not feel we given his full attention and we're rushed through the visit. I was attempting to ask questions how to best care for our child's sickness as to we were not being prescribed meds and the doctorwas literally walking out the door while I was trying to ask questions and understand how I should take care of her. very unprofessional and rude. Never again will we see this Doctor.

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, Jon Kannensohn did not disclose any Outside Relationships with Industry.
