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 Jul 26, 2022

I was quite taken by the care and compassion of both Dr. Lamarre and Dr. Zimmer and the amount of time they spent with me to understand my condition and and attempts to help me, even though my condition looks pretty hopeless as far as improving. I have endured some of the worst effects of my radiation and chemo treatment from 12 years ago. Despite that I sensed a real concern and determination on their part to try to find help for me to cope with the reality of my long term side effects. I felt like I was in the best of hands as far as their determination to try to help me. Both great guys.
