Industry Relationships

Industry Relationships

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.

As of 12/29/2017, Dr. Dellaportas has reported no financial relationship with industry that is applicable to this listing. In general, patients should feel free to contact their doctor about any of the relationships and how the relationships are overseen by Cleveland Clinic.

Public Health Service-Reportable Financial Conflicts of Interest. 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. Interactions with industry are essential to bringing the researchers' discoveries to the public, but can present the potential for conflicts of interest related to their research activities. Click here to view a listing of instances where Cleveland Clinic has identified a Public Health Service (PHS)-Reportable Financial Conflict of Interest and has put measures in place to ensure that, to the extent possible, the design, conduct and reporting of the research is free from bias.

Dr. Sandra Dellaportas is a great example of world class care and patient's first. She is so caring, patient and compassionate, and gives each patient her "all" and gives me confidence that my concerns are important and the best treatment plan is executed. If it wasn't for her and her thoroughness (last year), I would not be here today. She is an outstanding physician and should be commended for her care!

Dr. Dellaportas is wonderful, always helping to determine what is best for my health and my personal well-being, including sending ideas and encouragement when it's not "appointment time."

I have been a patient of Dr. Dellaportas for over 15yrs. she is the most professional, caring and competent physician that I have dealt with in the Cleveland Clinic. Her office is always very efficient, professional and caring. My husband and daughter are also under her care. I have gone to other Cleveland Clinic doctors and have not had the same experience. Some were fair some were terrible. Some were unorganized and not listening to patient, it starts from the top down. The staff making appointments and reception areas have always been great. Dr. Dellaportas office has always been top notch.
