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.

I felt like no matter what I said or how I felt, the Dr has tunnel vision. The only concern and always the ens result is to figure out what medication your going to take. there are no appts during normal hours so you have to miss a while day of work after waiting 3 months for an opening just to be rushed through a 5 minute interview about which med you need. I could've ddone this from home. I definitely feel like a number used to meet a quota.

There was no compassion shown at all and instead of feeling like the physician cared about my ailments I felt like I was being interrogated, that she didn't believe what I was saying, and she demanded proof of everything that I stated in an effort to prove me wrong instead of having an open mind and the desire to help me.
