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 6/7/2017, Dr. Shlonsky 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.

this was the best experience I have had in a long time with a specialist. Dr Schlonsky was very attentive to my questions and concerns and answered them thoroughly. I would give him a high recommendation to my friends.

Dr Shlonsky did a great job teaching!

I feel I can call this Doctor and get personal attention. in fact, he was quite clear that I shouldn't hesitate to ask to be put in touch with him personally if I had any issues. the entire staff said reinforced what a good doctor he was and his good bedside manner. He was pretty amazing in terms of his caring approach. in fact, his thoughtfulness and caring gives me confidence and I have commented about him to others asking about my surgery.

I prefer that the doctor tells me his idea of treatment because I would not have understood why it took so long for my particular injury to heal. Dr Schlonsky explained very well why he was making sure I didn't reinjure it

Reviewed on Apr 27, 2017

The visit was just a routine care of my toes. The only follow-up care he addressed was making another appointment in about 3 or 4 months.

Reviewed on Apr 25, 2017

Dr answered a personal cell phone call during visit. He also felt the need to draw on me. it was a waste of time. for the length of time I was there, we could have done the proper nail care/ procedure. But instead he had to tell me everything I already knew, and after all of that, then I would have to schedule the next meeting. Thanks for wasting my time.

suggested a vitamin for my foot problem, but was by prescription. 90 supply was $200, really caught me off guard. i know doctors don't know prices, but i'm sure he has heard or has an idea of prices, would have thought he would ask if the cost was ok for me. i did get it because I wanted to try it, got 90 days to give it real try.
