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 11/14/2016, Dr. Leo has reported the financial relationships with the companies listed below. In general, patients should feel free to contact their doctor about any of the relationships and how the relationships are overseen by Cleveland Clinic.

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.

After the doctor diagnosed me with a torn meniscus, he gave very little information on what kind of tear, what it means to me for the future. He advised he was going to give me a cortisone shot. He left the room. A few minutes later another person (student) came in alone, briefly looked at my knee, barely spoke and proceeded to give me the shot. I felt the doctor should have been in the room as I was his patient and he never told me a different person was coming in to give me the cortisone. poor communication and hand off. I realize that a torn meniscus is routine and mundane to him, but it's my first one and I was in a lot of pain. A little more information and expectation setting would have been helpful.

The provider appeared tired and in a hurry. I felt pressured and forgot to ask him important questions I had about my problem. He spent about 5 min with me. I am disappointed of my first experience with Cleveland Clinic of Weston, FL.
