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.

it's almost impossible to get thru to someone in the doctors office. Going thru scheduler is a very difficult even after explaining that I was waiting 5 weeks for Cleveland Clinic to send a request to my insurance company for authorization she scheduled my appointment another 3 weeks out. Doctor Day is a good doctor her staff are all good, it's the wall that the Clinic puts around them that hurts people in pain.

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.
