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.

My visit with Dr. Malgiery was a wonderful experience. He was exceptionally kind, understanding, and he listened to my concerns intently. I would highly recommend him to my family and friends.

Reviewed on Apr 5, 2016

I cannot say enough about how Dr. Malgieri's personable, knowledgeable, direct and confident manner diffused my anxiety during the scary moments of hearing the implications of my cancer diagnosis and the best plan to follow forward. He answered all my questions without hedging, and, while he made clear that some decisions would be mine to make, he did not hesitate to recommend what he considered to be the best course of treatment. He opened up his outline of the timeline of my care to include post-surgical treatment, helping me see past the crisis to a knowable plan for returning me to health and thus easing potentially alarming uncertainties. He could not have been more compassionate and reassuring.
