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 7/3/2020, 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.

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.

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.

I love going to Dr. Verdon's. The office staff is professional, polite and enjoyable to be around. I honestly can't say enough good about them. Dr. Verdon is just as professional and easy to talk to. I wish I would of have gone to him back in 2018, but it's ok, makes me appreciate him even more. The only reason why I gave a #4 on the appointment time was because I had to wait a full 3 months to recieve another shot. Something no one has control over. p
