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 4/9/2021, Dr. Iafelice 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.

Dr. Iafelice is a wonderful and caring doctor.

I would definitely recommend Dr Iafelice to anyone. He was my doctor years back but then my employment insurance changed and he was not on the provider list. Insurance again changed and I'm happy that I can see him once again. He is very caring, professional and very knowledgeable. He takes time to listen to your concerns and questions and puts you at ease. I was really surprised when he called me on a Sunday morning regarding my results from my appointment. You are greeted by him with a firm handshake and you leave his office with a firm handshaketo me that tells me a lot about that person. He's not allowed to retire.

I went in with a lot of nerves and meeting Dr. I for the first time went better than I could have imagined. He made me so comfortable and was very kind and informative. Even receiving not so great news he managed to deliver it in a very nice way and make me feel okay about it.

Dr. Iafalice is so personable, funny, and honest. I was considering switching to a new birth control and did some research about the new one. I was on the fence and was hoping Dr. Iafalice would explain to me the pros and cons if I switched. He was so honest about the positive and negative effects that the switch would make on my body and I was relieved to hear that he was so forthcoming with this information. I know that he would never steer a patient wrong.
