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 11/10/2020, Dr. Ferreira Provenzano 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.

Dr Provenzano is clear and includes asking questions that I'm comfortable with any changes. I always feel confident at the end of each visit my current changes and I never feel she doesn't hear my questions or concerns.

I'm sure Dr. PROVENZANO is a very dedicated and competent doctor. However I didn't come away with a feeling of having some sort of action plan. I consider my situation serious and felt there wasn't enough time for questions and the appointment ended very abruptly. I know she was busy and I had been a few minutes late. I had high expectations for this clinic so perhaps it wasn't realistic. I had questions about the paperwork she was giving me and still do not understand them. I just came away depressed but again, my expectations were high since this was the Cleveland clinic.

Reviewed on May 28, 2021

I was hoping for a different outcome (knowing what my treatment plan would be going forward). I knew I would have to be tested but I just felt confused about some concerns when I left. Dr. PROVENZANO didn't seem to have information she needed and knowing beforehand what she needed would have been helpful. I did call before my appointment Andi was told to bring recent test results. she didn't appear to have the time to review everything. She did go over some things but it was rushed and I didn't feel comfortable questioning her further.

Reviewed on May 18, 2021

Just seeing this Doc walk in the door and cheered me on with all my success to date is a real feather in the cap. Dr Provenzano sets expectations and I have felt the benefits each step of the way.

Dr Provenzano was genuinely interested in my goals related to her support/treatment. She fully engaged in learning as much as possible from my description of background, prior treatment, etc related to my first time visit with her. I felt very confident in putting my health care in her hands.

Dr is very calm and has patience with my communication struggles. she explains things so that I can understand them. and doesn't get overwhelmed by me being autistic with a rare genetic defect of my auto nervous system. which is really really awesome. Dr is very good at calming me when I get anxious. and treats me like a person not like a defect. I think Dr is very caring and considerate.
