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.

Dr. Stephans is very caring and compassion in an area where hope is often low. I appreciate his attention to my problems and his optimism.

Reviewed on Apr 15, 2024

I received excellent care and communication from Dr. Stephanie and his staff. My huge problem with Cleveland Clinic is the complete failure to be able to schedule tests and treatments. There is no excuse for a patient to have to wait 4 months for an MRI when they have active cancer lesions. Yet CC keeps expanding when they can't take care of the patients altready being treated. This is a life threatening problem!!

He's awesome! I use to feel female doctors were smarter and had better bedside manners than male doctors but after seeing Dr. Stephan my mind has changed a little.
