Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists may collaborate with the pharmaceutical or medical device industries to help develop medical breakthroughs or provide medical expertise or education. 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. As experts in their fields, Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists are often sought after by industry to consult, provide expertise and education.

She explained to me what the doctors at the hospital missed on my mris. It was insane that they missed very vital information about what is actually going on with me. They missed all my new lesions and misdiagnosed my ms attack and she gave me the correct info. She's getting me an ms drug that will work very well for me and also cared very much about the pain I live with and also gave me the go ahead to get my foot possibly fixed. I'm grateful to her and wish my pain doctor would have listened to me about my concerns that Dr Huah and I discussed about my pain levels. She got angry with me and my ms specialist saying that she had no say in my pain issues and to let her do her job. I was quite hurt by her reaction and don't know how to proceed about that. I'll speak with Dr Huah about it on our next visit and get her advice.Thank you for being such a fantastic, professional and wonderful doctor. I'm sure with your help, I'll get a bit more relief and help than I've been getting these last several years.

When I called to set up an appt, person could not find Bill's records-it was like Cleveland Clinic had done an upgrade & he was not easily found. Finally I gave Bill's patient number & then he was there. That's when we scheduled a virtual appt, as Dr Hua couldn't schedule us until Nov in person. Virtual was very good.

I felt like no matter what I said or how I felt, the Dr has tunnel vision. The only concern and always the ens result is to figure out what medication your going to take. there are no appts during normal hours so you have to miss a while day of work after waiting 3 months for an opening just to be rushed through a 5 minute interview about which med you need. I could've ddone this from home. I definitely feel like a number used to meet a quota.

There was no compassion shown at all and instead of feeling like the physician cared about my ailments I felt like I was being interrogated, that she didn't believe what I was saying, and she demanded proof of everything that I stated in an effort to prove me wrong instead of having an open mind and the desire to help me.
