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 3/14/2019, Dr. Jesse 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. Jesse is an excellent doctor! She gives you her undivided attention and all the time you need. Never feel rushed or like a number! She is compassionate, listens and addresses your every need and concern. I wish all my doctors were like Dr.Jesse! l would/have highly recommended her to family and friends or anyone in need of an excellent OB/GYN!

had to wait in exam rm quite a long time before Dr. came in. She did apologize. Exam was very quick!

Dr. Jesse is a wonderful physician, very thoughtful and thorough. This appointment moved along well, with minimal wait times. However, prenatal appointments are always an excessive wait, with me left waiting for up to two hours at times. I find it interesting that I never received a single feedback survey for any of those appointments. I am confident in the care I receive, however this practice has grown so large that the wait times for pregnant women are disrespectful to the patients.

Dr Jesse is an amazing doctor. She is very caring and is very attentive to any questions/concerns I have.

When I arrived I was told Dr Jesse was running on time. I waited 1 1/2 hours to see her. That said, she was very apologetic when she came in.

Dr. Jesse is a wonderful doctor & caregiver. She makes me feel extremely comfortable.

Reviewed on Feb 12, 2019

The doctor is always running behind. It seems as though she is pushed by the Cleveland Clinic excessively or she does that herself. That really is not great service for patients. You are made to wait for the exam and then hurried through it.

Reviewed on Feb 7, 2019

All the staff I came in contact with were very respectful and welcoming. Dr. Jesse allowed me to be comfortable and told everything that was going on so I wasn't nervous or surprised by anything. This experience helps me trust the Cleveland Clinic and makes me want to continue my journey there.

Dr.Jesse is terrific. I have no complaints with the care she provides.
