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 7/12/2019, Dr. Wisco 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.

I have had several conversations with other doctors but this time with Dr. Wisco finally let me understand what I am actually dealing with. She is also trying to get at the root of why I have blood clots which I really appreciate. I have already recommended Cleveland Clinic to others.

Dr Wisco was very pleasant. Was concerned and wanted to do more tests to see in detail my problem and proceed with a medical plan and/or treatment.

Dr Wisco went over all of my reports and downloaded the discs that I hand carried. She spent a lot of time with me!!! I feel like I have some hope and some answers to my health concerns. I've spent two years going to various doctors and never received solid answers. I'm very happy with the care that I received at Cleveland Clinic.

Both my mother and I walked out feeling like Dr. Wisco felt that there was improvement in my condition. While she mentioned an area that still did not have good blood flow, she also mentioned/pointed out an area where there seemed to be improvement. However, when I read her summary of the visit it stated no change in scans since December. So, I felt that the communication of specifically what she was seeing/feeling was not well communicated.

Dr Wisco is a phenomenal neurologist, she was thorough and answered all of my questions without me feeling rushed. She is a great asset to Cleveland Clinic; not many neurologists have the brains and such a great bedside manner. She was a breath of fresh air compared to the countless neurologists that I've seen for my uncommon condition.
