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.
To assure professional and commercial integrity in such matters, Cleveland Clinic maintains a program that reviews these collaborations and, when appropriate, puts measures in place to minimize bias that may result from ties to industry. Cleveland Clinic publicly discloses the names of companies when (i) its physicians/scientists receive $5,000 or more per year (or, in rare cases, equity or stock options) for speaking and consulting, (ii) its physicians/scientists serve as a fiduciary, (iii) its physicians/scientists receive or have the right to receive royalties or (iv) its physicians/ scientists hold any equity interest for the physician's/scientist's role as inventor, discoverer, developer, founder or consultant.* In publicly disclosing this information, Cleveland Clinic tries to provide information as accurately as possible about its physicians' and scientists' connections with industry.
As of 6/4/2016, Dr. Garren-Hudson has reported no financial relationship with industry that is applicable to this listing. In general, patients should feel free to contact their doctor about any of the relationships and how the relationships are overseen by Cleveland Clinic.

Public Health Service-Reportable Financial Conflicts of Interest. Cleveland Clinic scientists and physicians engage in basic, translational and clinical research activities, working to solve health problems, enhance patient care and improve quality of life for patients. Interactions with industry are essential to bringing the researchers' discoveries to the public, but can present the potential for conflicts of interest related to their research activities. Click here to view a listing of instances where Cleveland Clinic has identified a Public Health Service (PHS)-Reportable Financial Conflict of Interest and has put measures in place to ensure that, to the extent possible, the design, conduct and reporting of the research is free from bias.
* Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists subscribe to the guidance presented in the PhRMA Code on Interactions with Healthcare Professionals and the AdvaMed Code of Ethics on Interactions with Health Care Professionals. As such, gifts of substantial value are generally prohibited.

Dr. Hudson is very well-read on the latest medical findings and medications. She is very thorough. She gave me a requisition to have a thyroid ultrasound so I wouldn't have to pay the $50 co-pay for an endocrinologist. She examined my back for possible skin cancer so I wouldn't have to pay the $50 co-pay for a dermatologist. She is polite, professional, respectful, and caring and I have recommended her to many people. She has been my primary care physician for about 20 years, and I hope I never have to have to change doctors.

As I said before, I spent 30-45 minutes with a 3rd year med student. When Dr. Hudson came in it was obvious that she was in a very big hurry and she said at the outset that she was not going to have time to cover all of my concerns.

Dr, Hudson may be the best PCP I've had in my adult life. She is extremely knowledgeable and listens attentively. She always gives insights and observations that make sense. She is not a "holier-than-thou" physician. Never acts like a know-it-all. I consider her a teammate in my healthcare. Absolutely phenomenal doctor-patient relationship. Thank you!!

Dr. Hudson encouraged me to start my treatment right away. She urged me to go home instead of to work so that I could wait for the pharmacy to open and get my medications. Her concern was evident, and I obeyed her instructions.
