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 11/2/2021, 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.

Extremely pleased with the care provided by both the nurse practitioner and Dr. Makin. Dr. Makin was very thorough. Where my doctors in California were concerned with treatment, Dr. Makin was more concerned with determining the cause of the condition in addition to treatment. I love the way the Cleveland clinic cares for its patients.

Dr Makin is the best!

Reviewed on Sep 20, 2021

My experience with Dr. Makin was unpleasant.She met with me for only 5 minutes and did not perform any type of examination.She didn't even look at my neck to see if anything looked abnormal or concerning (I'm currently being seen for a thyroid Issue). She did put in orders for me to have an ultrasound and bloodwork, which I was able to schedule and complete the same day.However, I will Not be scheduling any future visits with Dr. Makin.I felt like she was not engaged in making sure that I maintain a healthy status.I'm going to find another Dr who has a dialogue with their patients and have a genuine concern about their health.

It was an easy process. She is a really good Dr. And II would think very popular.
