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.

The was the first time that I had met with Dr. Shlonsky and it was a fantastic experience. I was able to get in to see him right away, he was on-time and he spend more time with me going over my reason for seeing him than any other provider in recent memory. He was a nice guy, kind and courteous and really seemed to want to help me resolve my issue. The treatment and suggestions that he offered solved the problem that I was having almost immediately. I'm now 5 days out from the appointment and pain free thanks to Dr. Shlonsky.
