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 11/29/2018, Dr. Lee 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.

There was a 6 month wait for this particular doctor but I was willing to wait based on other reviews that I had read.

Reviewed on Oct 14, 2019

Dr. Lee is the best doctor that I have ever met with. I have been on an undiagnosed illness journey for 6 years. In that time I have seen 3 Functional Medicine Doctors, 4 Gastroenterologists, my Gynecologist, and a slew of alternative practice doctors. Over the years I have been "diagnosed" with many different things and been prescribed many different treatment plans. None of them have worked. The last gastro told me that there was nothing that could be done. Dr. Lee figured out what my issue was within 5 minutes of looking at my CT scan. She explained in a clear and relatable fashion what was wrong, why it was an issue, and how I could fix it. She spent an hour with me answering all of my questions, even ones that I didn't have. I felt like a weight was lifted from my shoulders immediately. My journey will continue. I'm not healed and I never will be. But now I know how to manage my illness and why the illness exists in the first place. Thank you, Dr. Lee!
