Patient Concerns

At Michigan Medicine our goal is to provide the best healthcare experience possible. So, if we fall short of your expectations, we want to know about it.

You have the right to express any concerns you may have. The recommended first course of action is to speak with the medical team responsible for the patient’s care, treatment, or service. Patient Relations and Clinical Risk is the destination for patients and families when the healthcare provided fails to meet expectations and talking with your health care team has not achieved resolution.
