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 11/7/2022, Dr. Connolly 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.

*Dr. Connolly was wonderful! She took the time to discuss dietary needs and our boys really listen to her. She's so great!

We very much liked Dr. Connelly. We were new patients and she took the time to get to know both children. She understood their different needs. She met with my son privately and was sensitive to his anxiety about being with a new doctor (and that he is 12 and going through puberty). Highly recommend!

We were new patients and Dr. Connely was wonderful. She took the time to get to know Sophia, she didn't seem rushed, she was kind. Would definitely recommend.

We have recommended Dr. Connolly to two other sets of new parents and they both like her just as much as we do!

Amazing Doctor, my son feels comfortable with her, I always recomend her to all family and friends.

I have never felt so comfortable with a doctor! Dr Connolly is AMAZING! She is compassionate and kind, made us feel comfortable and cared for, and never made us feel rushed at all. She discussed treatment options with us (including my daughter in the conversation) and spent time talking with us about future care. She recommended the HPV vaccine for our daughter but did so without pressuring us and gave us a pamphlet to bring home to read. I wish all providers made their patients feel the way Dr Connolly does!
