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 1/9/2017, Dr. Pichurko 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. B. Pichvako extended to me the courtesy (friendliness and concerns unmatched by any other doctor). Thank you for an "A+" job.

I really appreciated Dr. Petrucho taking my concerns seriously. I came to him with a set of symptoms that I have been trying to get diagnosed for 8 years, and many of the doctors I have seen have taken an easy way out (such as diagnosing asthma), handed me off to someone else, and/or dismissed my concerns and research out of hand. Dr. Petrucho listened to me, had ideas about where to go from here, and respected that I knew a lot about my symptoms and medical history. He treated me with respect, spoke directly to me, and took his time. I cannot tell you how much that means to me. I have now visited the Cleveland Clinic twice for two very different issues and I have been immensely impressed both times by how the doctors treated me.

I was very pleased with my visit. The Doctor is very kind and helpful. He took time and was not in a hurry. I hightly recommend this Dr. When I leave his office I know exactly what I need to know and he gives me a paper on what went on that day. He is very good and kind.
