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 10/4/2021, Dr. Janik 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.

Dr Janik was wonderful, the staff at the clinic was wonderful as well. Calling the Cleveland clinic is a nightmare! For some reason you're not allowed to talk to any nurses?? I used to be a triage nurse for the Cleveland clinic and talk to about 50 to 60 patients per day at least! The prompts ask you to press one for an appointment or press two to talk to your doctor's office. If you press two you talk to someone who asks you a hundred questions and then asks when you would like to be seen? Why ask if I want to talk to the doctor's office if you're going to put me through to scheduling every time? I waited on hold the other day for 20 minutes just to get to scheduling when I had prompted for talking to the office. That person switched me to the office I told them my issue and they said hold please put me on hold for 7 to 10 minutes and then came back to say let me switch you to scheduling I told her not to bother. This is a poor representation of the doctors and nurses and staff working within the offices. Your phone system is less than perfect for sure.
