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.

I had seen multiple providers over the past year or so for my eyelid affliction.

As a nurse of forty years and a lifetime sufferer of the allergic triage, I really appreciated the education and the rationales.

I scheduled a relatively early appt because I dislike waiting to be seen, though I do appreciate doctors taking the time necessary to properly care for their patients. I was taken into the office promptly, and had no wait to see the doctor. This doctor listened, looked at photos I had taken of my condition at its worst, then examined my problem area. He informed me of his diagnosis, and informed me of the causes of the illness and what to expect going forward. He gave me a prescription, explained fully how and when to use it, and when to stop using it. He also gave me steps to take to prevent or ease reoccurrences. He did all this in a short period of time, which I appreciated. He made sure I understood his instructions, and did it in a manner that didn't sound condescending or like he was talking to a child. I also appreciated that.
