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.

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.

Dr. Rieder's concern, empathy, logical approach, wisdom and patience with me vastly surpassed every prior interaction I've ever had with America's medical practitioners.....but I am only 75. During the introductions my neighborhood lost all power and his calmness while we rebooted was astonishing.

after the procedure the doctor did not talk to us at all.

Dr. Reider appears to be very attentive, considerate and understanding of my needs.

Reviewed on Nov 18, 2019

Dr. Reider dismissed my concerns and made me feel very much as he felt that I was exaggerating. He explained why he chose the treatment plan he did but did not address my concerns over medication side effects. It was very disheartening to be told to just follow up with issues rather than feeling like we could take the time to discuss issues upfront at this appointment. I felt that my concerns were dismissed.
