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.

Dr Matko was excellent, I heard he was great and it turned out to be correct

Reviewed on Oct 5, 2023

I would give Dr Matko 100 across the board if available. He is great! He did my knee replacement and has showed genuine interest in how I am doing and what I can do to improve. He has been very positive yet strict. I enjoy his no nonsense attitude and his caution with before and after care. I tell everyone how good he is and if they need a physician for joint issues, he is the one.

Dr. Matko was very attentive, explained everything well; e.g. Injury, Healing expectations, When sent notice of concern via MyChart, he responded within a few hours and clear information and encouragement. That was when I needed that as I was discouraged about the healing process. I regained full confidence that I was on the right track.

Dr. Matko is kind and concerned. However, because CC appointments seem to be limited to 15 minutes, he was conspicuously rushed. He had already made up his mind about the best course of treatment and didn't have time to consider my alternative proposals.
