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 1/23/2019, Dr. Murphy 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.

Recommend Dr. Brian Murphy. Always takes time to talk, give results of labs, discuss further treatment, &plan of care. never feel rushed & I know there are others in the waiting room. He is outstanding/ God knows I see several other doctors. There are not many like him. (I am retired nurse.) Also Cleveland Clinic usually sends a reminder of appointment. Out of the clear blue I thought about my appointment--I called the office to see when my appointment is-- guess what/ I missed it/ it was in November/ three months prior. They kindly made me an appointment. nothing but good to say. Thank you.

Doctor Murphy is absolutely the BEST, and I've more than once told friends that should they ever need the specialty of an oncologist, there are NONE BETTER. Dr. Murphy has seen me through a very trying medical issue, his advice was sound, the information complete and when I wasn't asking the right questions, he provided others AND answered them for me. Believe me I know more about what I had (and why I'm still here today) than I ever would somewhere else. (cancer patients apparently feel the need to compare notes and folks being cared for elsewhere don't seem to get near the care I do)
