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 7/11/2017, Dr. Collier 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. Collier is attentive, thoughtful, and descriptive while giving prognosis. I've never felt rushed and appreciate his calm and friendly manner. Even though my condition is serious and potentially stressful, Dr. Collier helps my understanding and future outlook. He and his staff are excellent, thank you!

Dr. Collier was excellent and spent a considerable amount of time with me and my family reviewing my history and answering questions. It was a terrific experience, and for the first time I did not feel rushed or that the doctor was in a hurry. Dr. Collier made me feel that I was the most important patient and that what I said and needed mattered.

I found out earlier in the year that I had an aortic aneurysm. I made an appointment with the Cleveland Clinic because of their rankings (no. 1) in cardiac care and surgery. Dr. Collier made everything very clear and laid out clearly what options I had. He was heads-and-shoulders over previous doctors I have had.

Reviewed on Mar 3, 2017

Very clear and detailed treatment plan

Reviewed on Feb 20, 2017

Dr. Collier was excellent. I am a physician and I appreciate a great doctor when I see one. He was clearly very knowledgeable and he had one of the best bedside manners I have ever encountered. He got me in for the MRI he ordered right away. He saw me again an hour later to go over fthe MRI results. He also called me later that day to follow-up on the final report. I was very glad I travelled to Cleveland Clinic for a second opinion. Well worth the trip to see Dr. Collier.

Reviewed on Jan 23, 2017

Both my wife and I were very impressed with Dr. Collier for his knowledge and ability to communicate effectively, and fact he followed up on our question, researched it and called us back with a satisfied answer. He showed us he cared which means a great deal to us. Thank you.

The provider was the most personable, caring, and respectful doctor I have had the privilege of meeting with. He went above and beyond to make sure he had enough time with me and talk through my results. I felt like a priority. It was refreshing to feel like I was in good hands and will be safely cared for. He has called me several times after appointments to go over information. He has quickly acted on my case and made scheduling future tests a top priority. I cannot sing his praises enough.

Reviewed on Jan 9, 2017

Again Dr. Collier was already familiar w my meds as well as the test results prior to seeing him. He changed a medicine & included me in the decision & discussed potential side effects & caution. He was very positive about the condition of my heart & willing to discuss other health issues w Doctor at Metro.
