Cleveland Clinic strives to make scientific advances that will benefit patient care and support outside relationships that promise public benefit. In order for the discoveries of Cleveland Clinic physicians' and scientists' laboratories and investigations to benefit the public, these discoveries must be commercialized in partnership with industry.

Dr. Hua is an excellent MS physician. She takes care of the symptoms, rather than masking them. she's caring too. My husband and I are amazed at the wonderful treatment and care he is receiving here. No comparison at all with his previous doctor. Everyone we have dealt with at Cleveland Clinic has been WONDERFUL. Just wish we had known about Cleveland Clinic six years ago. Can't speak highly enough about the care and treatment received here.

dr hua was fabulous

Reviewed on Jul 2, 2019

Dr. Hua is somewhat cold and doesn't have a pleasant bedside manner. I felt as though I was simply wasting her time for an initial consult. she consistently challenged me on why one doctor prescribed me something, what another doctor was doing, and used professional lingo I didn't understand and had to ask her to repeat herself a few times. I don't feel that she seemed to have any sort of interest or concern with what I was there to be seen for, and mad end second guess what some of my doctors are doing for me. I left the appointment riled up.
