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 Feb 29, 2024

The doctor came in and immediately went to the computer. He was more interested in dictating his report rather than addressing my concerns. He reviewed notes from a prior physican (from 5 years ago) and based his findings (pretty much) on the other phycican's notes. As a new patient. I felt rushed. He did advise me of yet another doctor to see so I appreciate that.

Doctor Medina took the time to answer my questions. However, my pain and suffering remains because there's not much he could do for me; except, physical therapy, which is only a way of coping. He explained to me that surgery was not a good option in my case. Although , I don't think he or any other doctor has gotten to the bottom of the cause of my problems; which is likely to be of autoimmune origin, I'm appreciative and thankful for doctor's Medina expertise.
