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.

I like this doctor and it seems, at least for the moment, that the issue is resolved but he seemed to be in a rush. I understand that this is a minor issue for him and most likely sees it all the time but he needs to remember that while it's second nature to him it's not to us. I'm not the type to need my hand held and like short, sweet and to the point but not everyone is the same and could see where it would be an issue for someone who isn't like that. The injection seems to be helping for now so we'll see if it did the trick when some time passes since I had the same result last time. It helped until it didn't.
