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 4/7/2023, Dr. Modlo 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.

In our first appointment, dr. Modlo was kind and explained stuff well and I was very much looking forward to working with him. Our second appointment was a 180. He was dismissive, rude, made me feel as if I don't know what I'm talking about with my own body or how to schedule appointments. I had to wait 3.5 months to get my labs interpreted despite having followed up multiple times.

Dr. Modlo has been a God-send to me over the last year and a half. I went from barely functioning, unable to get out of bed most days and on disability, struggling to know what was wrong to a fully functioning individual again, with a full plan of care, and able to work. Dr. Modlo, upon hearing my symptoms, knew what tests to run when others didn't and when the tests came back positive, knew how to get me well. I cannot recommend him enough. I tell all I know who are struggling to try to see him at functional medicine at Cleveland clinic. I know this all sounds over the top, but it's exactly how I feel.

He was 35 minutes late and was in a hurry to be done before the end of the hour. Only spending about 20 minutes with us. Not worth our trouble to talk with him. Not rude but uncaring about our problems. Because of him we probably will not be scheduling any more visits. Why would we? Meeting was too short to be productive.

Reviewed on Aug 4, 2023

I think he is very smart. However the conversation began with his ground rules, and the fact that he was blunt. He went on to say that some people don't like that. Stating your deficiency is not a justification for it. Working on it is a much better plan of action. I appreciated the tests that he ordered, and some of his thought process, but I left with no idea what next steps were other than 8 weeks later I would see him again. He also put down the director of the dept regarding a decision made without his input. I was beyond excited about this visit and left feeling like I didn't have an ally working toward my health. Thankfully when I expressed this to the receptionist she helped move my provider.
