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 4/27/2024, Dr. Jesse has reported the financial relationships with the companies listed below. 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.

The first apptmt I was given was 5/9 however no doctor was available so I got a call to reschedule. We rescheduled for 5-17

Reviewed on May 17, 2024

My appointment had to be canceled bc nowhere in my instructions was I told I needed to take antibiotics before this procedure bc of my knee replacements. The poor doctor was stuck delivering that irritating news. Her time, my time and my husband's time were all wasted. Next available appointment is June 4 with a different doctor. In the meantime the problem started at end of October 2023.

Dr. Joan Jesse is the best doctor I have ever been to! You can tell you have her complete attention. She is focused on you 100%. There have been other Cleveland Clinic doctors that rush through the appointment and make me feel like a number. That is NOT the case with Dr. Jesse. I feel blessed to have her as my doctor!

Reviewed on Apr 15, 2024

This has been my first time seeing Dr. Jesse. Normally I see nurse midwives, but my condition requires more advanced training, and so I was able to get an appointment with Dr. Jesse. I really appreciated the time she took on the call and her receptiveness to questions. The call didn't feel rushed. Dr. Jesse has been extremely responsive to portal messages - even handling one on a weekend.

Reviewed on Apr 15, 2024

The only issue is that Dr. Jesse's schedule clearly fills up fast, and she sometimes runs a little behind. I'd urge the Clinic to ensure that they are providing adequate time to providers to spend with patients and not overbooking.

I dont like to complain but I don't feel like I'm getting great care with Dr Jesse. She is always ridiculously late to my appointments and then very rushed for the very limited amount of time I'm seen.
