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 10/10/2017, Dr. Grobmyer has reported the financial relationships with the companies listed below. In general, patients should feel free to contact their doctor about any of the relationships and how the relationships are overseen by Cleveland Clinic. To learn more about Cleveland Clinic's policies on collaborations with industry and innovation management, go to our Integrity in Innovation page.

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.

appointment was really really late - my wait time was 11/2 hours. Dr Grobmeyer is the best! He did my cancer surgery and I am alive today because of him. Recd a phone call 10 minutes before my appointment that he was running 45 minutes late. Next time more warning and accuracy - the wait was irritating but Dr. Grobmeyer is awesome.

Dr. Grobmyer and his staff have been extremely helpful and I feel that he has saved my life, along with Dr. Djohan, Dr. Andresen and Dr. Kruse in particular. I welcome my association with Dr. Shah, and the care he and the team have given in developing the best plan for my illness.

Follow up care on my lumpectomy was a little bit confusing.

He suggested I use an over the counter product "Primrose Oil" from a nutrition store that many might equate to being a "Snake Oil"! That was the best he could offer. He also inspected the incision scars I have from a procedure he did on me 2 years before noting he thought they looked better even though they have become painful keloids for me.
