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 6/20/2023, Dr. Davin 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.

* Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists subscribe to the guidance presented in the PhRMA Code on Interactions with Healthcare Professionals and the AdvaMed Code of Ethics on Interactions with Health Care Professionals. As such, gifts of substantial value are generally prohibited.

Sara has been my therapist for many years. It's hard to put into words just how much she has impacted my life. She's been with me through so many ups and downs, and she has helped me grow immensely. Every single session I have with her is productive; which is incredible, considering I've been seeing her for so many years. She shares her own life experiences if they are relevant to what I'm going through, which is very helpful, and shows me that I'm not alone. She has single-handedly changed my life for the better, and I feel so lucky to have found her. The Cleveland Clinic is very lucky to have such a kind, compassionate therapist as a provider.

Sara is one of the most compassionate, caring, gentle, yet SMART caregivers I have. I am thankful she is part of my team since I have such a boatload of clinicians. Her understanding and overall ability to help me get to the other side of from being a "PATIENT TO A PERSON" I have high hopes for. Thank you.

I actually met with Lauren Abshire, at first I was very anxious since I thought I was meeting with Dr. Davin, but Dr. Abshire was able to put me at ease. She was very understanding and empathetic, I was grateful I had the opportunity to meet her!

Sara has been my therapist for many years now. She is absolutely wonderful, in every aspect. I truly cannot imagine my life without her in it. She has helped me so much, and she is very relatable and shares her own experiences with me if she has gone through something similar. She goes above and beyond for me and I'm truly so lucky to have her as my therapist. My life has changed for the better, because of the impact Sara has had. I continue to grow as a person, with her guidance, and I am forever grateful to have met her. The Cleveland Clinic is incredibly lucky to have her as a provider.
