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 10/6/2017, Dr. Bernick 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. To learn more about Cleveland Clinic's policies on collaborations with industry and innovation management, go to our Integrity in Innovation page.
Consulting and/or Speaking. Dr. Bernick receives fees of $5,000 or more per year as a paid consultant, speaker or member of an advisory committee for the following companies:
- Aegis Senior Communities, LLC.
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.
* Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists subscribe to the guidance presented in the PhRMA Code on Interactions with Healthcare Professionals and the AdvaMed Code of Ethics on Interactions with Health Care Professionals. As such, gifts of substantial value are generally prohibited.

Your entire staff is wonderful. Everyone is helpful and accommodating . I would like to give special mention about Dr. Bernick. I came in from out of town with some real concerns. Dr. Bernick was patient and very knowledgeable. He spent a lot of time asking me questions and addressing my concerns. He then ordered some tests for me. I walked out of the Clinic knowing that whatever the results may be, I am in good hands. Thank you Cleveland Clinic

This was my first visit. It was not a time for decisions, medications, or follow up care. More information must be gathered first. This was a reasonably good experience overall.

Again, I think it is a function of this Cleveland Clinics area(s) of specialization(s), i.e., yours being degenerative diseases of the brain whereas my need is for traumatic brain injury specialists..., again, having written that I am very, very appreciative of what Dr. Bernick, your occupational therapists, etc. are attempting to do for me given I don't fall in their area of expertise... Until you came to Las Vegas, to my knowledge, there were no experts in degenerative brain diseases..., so keep up the excellent work!!!
