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 3/3/2023, Dr. Girzhel 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.

Absolutely love Dr. Girzhel! I recommend her to everyone! She listens and cares. I felt like all my needs and questions were addressed.

Reviewed on Apr 13, 2023

Dr. Girzhel is the best doctor to work with as a patient because she's not only professional and knowledgeable, but she also shows a degree of empathy and care that I wish every doctor had. She treats me like a human being and cares about my wellbeing, both within the context of our appointments and in general. The procedure of getting a nexplanon implant taken out and replaced is not a pleasant one, especially since I have developed scar tissues and adhesions over time, but she balanced doing a great job with the procedure and taking my mind off of the discomfort by talking to me throughout it. The way she approaches her patients shows that she understands what it's like to be one and wants to limit the amount of stress/pain her patients have to deal with, which I appreciate as someone who has chronic health conditions and has had negative experiences with other types of specialists. I can't say enough positive things about her and I'm lucky to have her as one of my doctors.

Dr. Girzhel is an incredible doctor and my appointment with her went well as usual. I appreciate that she's always a great listener, empathetic towards my concerns, and makes sure that our appointments are a collaborative effort in which my health and needs are prioritized. Being that this appointment was a surgical consult, her thoroughness and virtual bedside manner made me feel informed about and comfortable with our next steps.
