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 7/21/2021, Dr. Verdun 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.

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.

Dr. Verdun knew what to ask, had extremely great suggestions, is very knowledgeable. He picked up on probable causes ofPain, that no other physician In our area, for 5 years, had ever mentioned. His orders were followed through by his nurses in a very timely manner, and though we stayed an extra night nearby, we were able to get the answers we were looking for, so we could go back to Michigan and pursue the new avenues.

I was told I have cysts in both knees the approx. Size of 1.5cm x 5cm with infusion, effusion and a small tear on one. He said he only does surgery and I don't require it so the only thing he will do is offer physical therapy. Physical therapy will not work as there is pain when bending and straightening because of the cysts. He did not offer any other treatment and did not refer me to anyone that could handle the needed treatment. Now I'm looking for another doctor and will have to wait more time to get into one because, "he only does surgery". He sucks and I will not recommend him, and will tell people why I'm still limping and in pain.

Reviewed on Aug 31, 2021

The clinic itself is great, there are good Dr's that I appreciate and use. This doctor was just a waste of time and should have said upfront he was only evaluating for a need of surgery. He actually said, "Other doctors will treat this but I only do surgery."

Dr Verdun is a very no nonsense sort of physician and simply isn't for the timid or the thin skinned. He tells you what you need to hear and not what you want to hear. More doctors should be able to administer care this way..but..with a softer touch. I like his style but maybe his delivery could be fine tuned. Dr Verdun , If you are reading this, remain a straight shooter!!

I scheduled the appointment for left knee pain. The nurse that came in to look at my knee was great! She asked questions, got to know a bit about my 12 year history, and physically inspected my leg. When the Dr. came in, he asked only a few questions, looked at my X-rays, and suggested that I, a 21 year old female with PCOS and a history of an eating disorder, should get gastric bypass surgery!! We asked if he was being serious that as a patient in my condition I should get that operation, he retracted and said "well I'm not really a bariatric dr so I don't know". Clearly did not care or take the time to ask anything. Then he continued to press weight loss, and sent a referral to pain management. He didn't even touch my leg to see for himself what was going on with it. I left the office bawling. I will NEVER. be coming back to him, or referring him to anyone.
