Cleveland Clinic strives to make scientific advances that will benefit patient care and support outside relationships that promise public benefit.

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.

Dr. Chaisson was exceptional. He asked me questions no one had ever asked. He seemed to be thinking all the while asking questions. I'm grateful I found him. I'm so hopeful he will be able to figure this out. I had doctors in LA and Youngstown that have been treating this condition for over 18 months with no significant results. Dr. Chaisson and staff were so courteous and kind and extremely professional and knowledgeable. I feel blessed to have found him.
