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 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.

Reviewed on Feb 5, 2019

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

Dr Jesse listened, answered my questions. Was open and honest. Offered guidance.

I can trust my provider and feel confident she has my best interest in mind.

My provider is very efficient and always on time for my appts, except for this past time which she explained in a very understanding way. I know she is doing her best.

Reviewed on Oct 29, 2018

Dr. Jesse tends to run behind schedule, however based on her interactions with me, is very understandable because hshe spends time to talk with her patients and makes sure all questions are answered

Reviewed on Sep 13, 2018

Dr. Jesse has been my OB/GYN for close to 25 years. She delivered both of my children. I have the utmost respect for her as a doctor and as a person.

Reviewed on May 3, 2018

dr Jesse has a large on/gym practice, sometimes emergencies happen with pregnancys that cause a delay throughout the day, if she is a little late she always apologizes and explains that there was an emergency. dr Jesse is very respectful to her patients

Reviewed on Apr 12, 2018

At my last appointment, I waited for 45 mins in the lobby. This was after the receptionist told me the dr was running 20 mins behind. After meeting with the nurse briefly in the exam room, I had to undress. I then waited for over 30 mins in a paper gown - in a freezing room - before the dr came to see me. This was for a routine women's wellness appt. I can't afford to be at the dr's office for over 1.5 hr when the apt took 10 mins. Dr. Jesse is wonderful but the scheduling and wait times are the worst of any provider.

Reviewed on Apr 3, 2018

If l answered "no" on some questions, it was non-applicable, Dr. Jean Jesse is the BEST doctor l've ever had - and i've had many!! She is knowledgeable, up on the latest information in her specialty, and what I find very important as a patient, extremely pleasant and personable!! She will spend all the time you need to discuss information answer questions. She is very empathetic and really cares about her patients! I only wish l could find a primary care doctor as superb as Dr Jesse!! (Sorry for any typos - print is very small; I'm unable to go back and check.)
