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.

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.

In a difficult profession he is at the top

wait time to see the doctor (Vascular) was 21 minutes and I felt this particular doctor was incorrect in my evaluation about the swelling in my feet and leg! I will not be back to see him! I was literally in his care for 5 to maybe 10 minutes!

the desk was very helpful getting my next appt when that was good for me

Reviewed on Jan 16, 2018

The dr said that I needed a CAT scan yearly from now on to check the repair of the aneurysm. I asked if that was necessary and why, and he failed to answer my question -- more like "because I said so." I plan to seek a second opinion outside of the Clinic network because I did not feel my questions and concerns were addressed.

I asked the Doctor to correspond with my provider Dr.Kohler about my situation
