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.

Thorough, lots of information, and she used several metaphors and images to make sure I understood what she was explaining. I can usually follow a lot of medical terms in discussions, and I imagine that her use of common images to illustrate a concept it very helpful to everyone, no matter what their level of medical knowledge and understanding is. She also appeared empathetic, and did listen closely to me when I spoke; she did not hurry me (yeah!).

Dr. Peters is an amazing healthcare provider. Patients improve and regain health when their physician is competent and compassionate. Dr. Peters overflows with both qualities.
