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 4/16/2024, Dr. Girzhel has reported the financial relationships with the companies listed below. 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. Girzhel is the epitome of what a doctor should be. She's empathetic, always asks me for my input and preferences for treatment options while giving her expert opinions, explains things thoroughly, and seems invested in her patients' quality of life.

Wait time was a little long between getting to the appointment and seeing the doctor.

Reviewed on Feb 29, 2024

It is very hard to get into specialities at the Cleveland clinic. Sometimes the wait is over 3 months. I was somehow lucky enough to get into Dr. Girzhel rather quickly. Once I was established she had her scheduler reach out and I was able to schedule my follow ups. This made it much easier than calling the appointment line.

Reviewed on Feb 29, 2024

Dr. Girzhel thoroughly explained my condition and treatment options. She listened to my concerns and took those into consideration when going over my options. She gave me her full attention and I felt as though she truly listened to me. I hold caregivers to a high set of standards as I worked bedside for over 15 years, and Dr. Girzhel exceeded my expectations. I felt comfortable during my appointment and I am confident being in her care.
