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 5/7/2018, Dr. Masin 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 masin is s gem! professional and kind !

Reviewed on Jan 21, 2019

I had been referred to a specialist outside of your network but was able to get an appointment on the same day with Dr. Masin. The whole process was swift, a couple back and forth phone calls, and the people I dealt with I feel truly wanted to help me and get me the best care for my severely injured ankle that required prompt care. Dr. Masin is a true professional and I was happy to have him overseeing my care. I cannot thank you enough for providing the support I needed in this time.

Express Care in Hudson recommend this follow up with a Orthopedic. They made the appointment. Dr. Masin seemed mad that I was following their advice and caused me to feel stupid for even coming to the appointment. He offered no help or recommend a course of action. I felt this appointment was a waste of time, and I was following the instructions of my health care provider.

Reviewed on Dec 17, 2018

Dr completed visit without providing summary report, an order for PT nor information of what I needed to do next in his office. No other staff member provided any closure information. Registration staff did follow-up with office staff but I had a 20 minute wait.

Reviewed on Dec 17, 2018

Cleveland Clinic, Dr. Masin and overall, has never been deficient in these areas. They have always been good or very good in the 12 years I have been a patient there.

Reviewed on Dec 5, 2018

Dr. Masin repaired my rotator cuff on June 12. My shoulder is doing great and he and his staff were awesome. Early after my surgery I was concerned I may have hurt the shoulder and Dr. Masin saw me right away, and I hadn't reinjured my shoulder,which was a relief. I would recommend Twinsburg facility and Dr. Masin to any of my friends requiring shoulder repair. I rarely sat in the waiting room ever; they always got me in on time.

Reviewed on Dec 3, 2018

Dr. Masin and Kevin were very considerate and informative telling me of my options

Doctor informed me that treatment for bursitis is rest, ice, and anti-inflammatories. Never mentioned physical therapy.

Reviewed on Sep 24, 2018

The provider I needed schedule was to far out and after that no real choice but to take what was available.

Reviewed on Aug 8, 2018

I broke my wrist out of state and was told I needed surgery ASAP. I wanted to come home for a second opinion and for the surgery if it was deemed necessary. I contacted a few CCF providers. One was not able to see me until at least August 24th. I am grateful and was relieved Dr. Masin could see me, and complete the necessary surgery within a week of my initial call to his office. I am comfortable with the care he is providing and optimistic about my prognosis.

Reviewed on Aug 8, 2018

See prior comments. I am happy with my experience to date with Dr. Masin.

Reviewed on Jul 11, 2018

I was very pleased with my experience. I thought the resident for Dr. Masin was particularly good.

Reviewed on Jul 9, 2018

This has been a 13 week journey. My Doctor has always told me what to expect going forward. He has been reassuring and extremely thorough. I have received excellent care. A phone call or a message to My Chart clarified two problems throughout these last 3+ months.

Reviewed on Jul 2, 2018

my experience with dr. mason was disappointing. my husband and I found him to be dismissive and detached.

Reviewed on Jun 25, 2018

I would definitely refer Dr. Masin to anyone who is suffering from the same health concerns as myself. He is a good doctor.
