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 1/9/2019, Dr. Montero 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.

*Dr. Montero was wonderful! He came out front to see what was happening/why I wasn't getting my Zometa IV. Then he asked if I'd like to reschedule it at Independence since it's closer to me, and apologized that another department messed up. I did go to Independence the following week. Another trip to Cleveland.

Doctor Montero and his nurse who helped me were so wonderful! They explained everything to me and made sure I left with no unanswered questions. My valet driver was also wonderful. I could not find a close parking spot and did not have cash on me, but he told me not to worry about tipping him, that he completely understands. I have about a 2 hour drive to get to the clinic, but I definitely don't mind coming back because of the care and hospitality I was shown.

Dr. Montero is an excellent physician. He spent a very long time listening and answering my concerns. He also listened carefully to my daughter who acompanied me to the appt. He gave me an abundance of information that was data based not opinionated which enabled me to make my own decisons about my plan of care. I will travel from Fl. to allow this kind, understanding and intelligent physician to manage my healthcare.
