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 9/25/2019, Dr. Wu 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.

I liked that Dr Wu took the time to explain everything to me. I did not feel he was in a hurry which I have experienced with other doctors in the past. Giving me fair amount of time is how it should be.

Reviewed on Jul 31, 2019

Dr. Wu came into the room, did not introduce himself to me and began to type into the computer in the corner of the room. He asked me questions while he was looking at the computer, never addressed me in any way and never looked at me. He informed me of the risks again without looking at me or explaining anything.

Good experience, no waiting, really like my doctor.

I was warned by the nurse that the doctor performing the colonoscopy was just a surgeon and wouldn't answer any questions about could be causes of my intestinal issues. that's fine and all, I understood that, but when my dad asked the surgeon a question he was extremely rude and dismissive of him. my dad was not in the room when the nurse warned me to not ask questions. so he had no idea he would be met with such cold demeanor

Dr. Wu was so professional and caring. I was not sure what to expect, but he told me exactly what he was going to do and made me feel at ease.
