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.

Reviewed on Jan 25, 2021

Dr. Grimm is an absolute gem! I cannot say enough good things about this kind and knowledgeable man. I recently retired from a long career as a physician assistant, and I know what differentiates a "good" caregiver from a "fantastic" caregiver.he listens and doesn't interrupt. But he knows how to guide a history taking and get the pertinent information. His responses are careful and well thought out. Dr Grimm makes sure that I understand everything he is discussing. he consistently asks if I have any questions about the plan of care. But this is no cookie cutter H & P machine - this gentleman has a warmth and kindness that is genuine and very rare.and his staff is cut from the same cloth. Kind, personable, and very professional. A wonderful wonderful practice!
