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.

Very pleased with the way Dr. Day listens to me describe my injury and how it affects my range of motion and pain. She worked my leg and verified my complaints where and how it hurt and where and how it did not. Very pleased with her conclusion that there was no permanent damage only a strain caused by my fall. She scheduled me for physical therapy and told me to contact her if I am still experiencing pain after 2 months. I was very relieved by her comments.

I really did not fully understand the nature of my problem, the likely cause, or the related problems. The interaction was proscriprltive (wear this) and strategic (call to set up PT is not better in a month). I would have liked to know the type of activity which might have precipitated the problem and how other areas of pain and discomfort related to this problem. I felt the explanation was short and in adequate

I was particularly happy with the manner in which Dr. Day personally insured and oversaw that I could be scheduled for the needed MRI expeditiously. She personally took charge of that and as a result, I had that MRI within hours of seeing Dr. Day even though that MRI took place at a different CCF facility.

Reviewed on Apr 3, 2017

While Dr. Day talks very fast/energetically, it is always thoughtful/informative. I STRONGLY believe too many physicians are pressed to see FAR TOO MANY patients in the course of a day, causing them to be hurried in their care of the patient. Dr. Day seems to balance this pressure quite well, but I am concerned that the pressure to increase patient numbers per day will only elevate, risking further fall-off in good patient care.
