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 11/17/2017, Dr. Wong 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 liked Dr. Wong very much, I felt very comfortable, he was very approachable, explained everything in layman terms, made it easy to understand the process and results of tests, allayed my fears. I hope I don't need to see him again but am glad I met him in case I do need to see a nephrologist in the future. As a result of decreasing one of my Rx, I will need to have another blood test this week. He said he will be in contact with my Primary with those results.

This is an efficiently run department. I see Dr. Wong annually and trust him with my healthcare. And, he's nice.

Reviewed on Dec 11, 2017

He was very thorough and I left there with a very good feeling. He was very informative about everything.

Everyone was just very good, reating me as though I was very special.

Dr. Wong is the best doctor I have ever had. He is extremely knowledgeable, helpful and really cares about his patients. I am grateful to him for bringing me back to such a good level of health after a health scare back in 2014. I think he is awesome and thankful he is my doctor.
