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 3/8/2017, Dr. Simpson 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.

This is the best medical care I have ever received. The doctor LISTENED to my problems, took them seriously, and found a solution that works well for me.

Dr Simpson & her nurse were very thoughtful of my fear.

Reviewed on Dec 27, 2016

This was my first experience with Dr Simpson and I loved her. I needed to see her for an unpleasant reason and both she and the nurse, Lilly, made me as comfortable as possible, explaining everything that would or should happen and trying to make me as comfortable as possible. Dr Simpson explained everything very thoroughly and repeated the instructions to make sure I understood (but not in a condescending way). I was very pleased with my appointment and with Dr Simpson, and I've already asked if she would be my permanent OB/GYN.

dr. Simpson gave me great advice and I appreciate everything we discussed

Reviewed on May 4, 2016

Dr. Simpson has been my OB/GYN for over 20 years. She is one of the kindest and most compassionate doctors I have had the pleasure of knowing. I will miss her terribly due to her transfer.
