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 5/26/2020, Dr. Franko 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.
* 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.

Dr Franko is very kind
Reviewed on Oct 16, 2020
Dr. Franko and before him, Dr. Victoria Brobey have been compassionate yet willing to gentle share what lifestyle changes would be in my best interest. That is very impactful to maintain patient compliance--generally specially I loathe physicians based on childhood trauma. They are the best--and my surgeon Dr. Pairiaso saved my life.

I've worked with Dr Franko for almost 6 years now and have been very pleased. He cares, he's intelligent, and he also treats me individually. He knows how bad my anxiety is, so he speaks with a good bedside manner and helps calm me down. I would highly recommend him to someone!

Excellent visual appointment, Dr. took care of everything I needed.

iN THESE TIMES, IT IS A COMFORT, EVEN ON THE PHONE TO TALK TO THE DOCTOR. One nice thing would be the ability to take a pic at home, and be able to send to the DR for surface problems. This was the first time Ive had a 'house call' from the DR in 1/2 a century.
