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.

I had a surgery when I was 2 years old, had follow-ups till I was 8, and was told then not to have further follow-ups. Now that I'm 30, my primary care physician thought it would be a good idea to have a follow-up. It was nice to hear Dr. Schwartzman say point blank: "I don't want to see you as a patient again". It was funny, but a resounding note that my heart still looks great and I have no reason to check on it again any time soon.
