Industry Relationships

Industry Relationships

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 8/26/2016, Dr. Mayer 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.

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.

Dr. Mayer is one of the best physicians I have seen. I really appreciate his effort to solve my complex back issue.

Reviewed on May 24, 2017

Dr. Mayer is a great doctor. He really listened to my problems and took time and is trying to figure out why I have been hurting for so long. He ordered tests and already found out what one issue is that nobody ever checked for before. He is courteous and kind and really delves into figuring out what is ailing his patients. I recommended him already to my husband and will recommend him to all my family and friends. Great doctor!

Very good experience. Other places Ive went to would not listen to me, he not only listened to me, he explained very well what he thought was going on and what i should do. Very empathetic. Would highly reccommend this Dr.

Dr. Mayer is absolutely wonderful and I feel so fortunate to have him as my doctor. He s very thorough when explaining everything and includes me in decisions regarding my neck and lets me know the different options for treatment. Dr. Mayer is a main reason for why my neck has improved as it has over the years.

I was very impressed with Dr. Mayer's ability to analyze a long case history and make recommendations about how to go forward and resolve the issue. I am SO glad I chose to come to him!
