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 11/19/2019, Dr. Makin 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 Vinni is very knowledgeable and kind

I felt that Dr. Makin dismissed my symptoms as minor/irrelevant. She made me feel like I was over-reacting to my test results. I would have appreciated more concern on her part.

I travel out of my immediate area to see Dr Makin because from my first visit, and every one thereafter, I have been so impressed with the facility and all who work there. The wait time is wonderful and I find the professionalism of all staff outstanding. I would recommend the Solon site to others for those reasons.

Dr. Makin was very nice, but the appointment felt a little rushed and I don't feel like she really listened to me or even read my chart before she was already prescribing medication. Will try the meds out, but I am not sure I am completely satisfied as this is only my first visit.

This was my first visit to this particular doctor. I felt the doctor was in a hurry. I was called and asked to come early for my appointment. I had test results that were only partially addressed. I need to call the doctor's office and point out that fact. I felt brushed off. I will be looking for another doctor.
