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 3/12/2018, Dr. Woodson 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.

I was a work-in patient and Dr. Woodson spent a full hour with me analyzing my problem, figuring out a treatment plan, and best of all, giving hope to me when I was very frightened and pessimistic about the future of my being able hear and to live without disability. My daughter and I were impressed with the doctor's thoroughness and her ability to see both my physical problem as well as the emotional distress it was causing me. And she addressed it by giving me hope and reassurance.

Dr. Woodson was fantastic, I saw her to get a second opinion on treatment and she is very knowledgeable. Her explanation of my condition far exceeded other physicians. I appreciate the time she took with me. it was a very helpful visit. Getting in to see her took well over a month and multiple calls to the Clinic looking for cancellations. This is beyond Dr. Woodson's control.

I sought Dr. Woodson for a second opinion visit and was glad I did. Her analysis and explanation of my problem was more plausible, complete and accurate than the six other health care physicians I had sought out earlier.

I had to wait >15 min. past my appt. time, but then Dr. Woodson came in and patiently answered ALL of my questions. So I realized that when you have a doctor who takes time to answer all of your questions appts. will sometimes run behind. I appreciate that!

The nurse did not delete the meds I said I was no longer taking. She exited my file and had to reopen it when I told her I was taking another medicine. She did not ask who my family doctor is despite me informing her that I'd moved since my last visit 5 years ago. my feeling was that she was impatient to move on.
