The Sunshine Act & Financial Transparency

At Houston Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in Houston, Pearland, and Webster, Texas, we value the trust of our patients. Our surgeons work to earn and maintain that trust with every individual they treat. That's why we encourage you to examine our surgeons' financial relationships with medical device and pharmaceutical companies using the Open Payments website established by the federal government as part of the Affordable Care Act.

The Physician Payments Sunshine Act

Financial relationships between physicians and companies that make medical devices or prescription drugs are common. These payments range from speaker fees and direct funding for research to paying for meals. Because these relationships have the potential to create conflicts of interest, in 2010, the Physician Payments Sunshine Act became law as part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

The Open Payments program established as part of the Sunshine Act compiles data on these financial relationships and makes it available publicly online. The first set of data was released in late 2014.

Our Commitment to Transparency

Our surgeons believe having patients view their financial relationships with pharmaceutical companies and medical device makers using the Open Payments website helps create transparent doctor-patient relationships. The site includes a number of tools. The easiest way to look up information about a surgeon is by clicking the "Use the search tool" function as shown below:
