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 4/2/2020, Dr. Roski 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.

I am very pleased with Dr. Ruski's care.

Reviewed on Jan 3, 2020

the feeling I got was that he looked me up and down saw that I an obese and he became very dismissive . I asked about pain, he said go see pain management. Then told be to go see another doctor, no name no title. he told me what was medically necessary and sent me on my way. when I left his office what can I do to better this, what precautions should I take to prevent it from getting worse. I had to get answers from goggle. I am still trying to figure the report on my chart. I asked most of these questions on my chart and I am waiting for a response. Very disappointed in CC, as nd Dr Roski.

Reviewed on Apr 2, 2019

the staff to the nurse to the doctor didn't seem interested in my medical condition and I was rushed to visit only lasted a minute and a half the worst.

Reviewed on Mar 27, 2019

I think you simply have to respect his 40 plus years of experience. If I didn't take that as the overwhelming critical factor then the dr would simply be hard to recommend. He's quick, abrupt, and doesn't come across as the most caring of drs. However for some people his skills and experience are far more important, for others a balance is important. He doesn't have that balance. He is not in any way rude. He's very professional. He's just dismissive and not into discussions.

Reviewed on Mar 19, 2019

I felt very fortunate to be able to see a dr with his experience. My interaction with him was brief but he said all he needed to in a very professional and calm manner.

The doctor did t go over my MRI results and review what the issue was with my back. He wanted to start with an injection and I had to talk him out of it and start with a steroid and PT. He showed very little sympathy for my situation.

Reviewed on Feb 12, 2019

I expected more communication from the provider because I needed more details concerning my problem. he was pleasant I expected him to discuss the follow up test he ordered as he left the room. He did not talk to me
