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 11/20/2018, 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.

Dr. Makin is very helpful and I appreciate her ability to understand my needs to help me.

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.

This was my second visit with Dr. Makin. Both have been early morning appointments. Both times, she was not as prompt in getting to the exam room as I would have expected.

the Dr saw and felt my distress and is the first Dr EVER to hug me and reassure me that it's gonna be okay
Reviewed on Sep 4, 2018
I have usually been satisfied with this healthcare provider; however, on my last visit, the intern spent the majority of the time asking questions and listening to my concerns. My healthcare provider spent approximately 5 minutes with me and did not seem to want to take the time to listen to anything I had to say regarding my health. This was very disappointing since it has only been a year since my thyroid surgery and treatment for thyroid cancer. Most likely I will be scheduling any yearly follow up appointments to monitor my health with another doctor/specialist.

Dr Makin listen with interest and concern for my issues. explain to me what it could be and what it probably wasn't. Arrange for me to see the nephrologist after testing came back and showed it was not an endrocrine problem. She was quick to respond on the online portal. I greatly appreciate her compassion and quick referral to another specialist.

During my visit, I felt rushed and didn't feel that the provider was asking enough about my concerns and asked very typical questions that I already went through myself without diving deeper into my problem. Additionally, I felt that it was a very close-minded appointment. I was advised to do a urine tests with no explanation as to what was being tested. After test results came through, I was advised that there was nothing else she could do with no option of someone else I could talk to or another step I could take to help me.
