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 5/21/2020, Dr. Macaron 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 Carol Macaron was very caring and showed concern for my condition. She listened to my concerns. I must say Dr Macaron made me feel like she understood what I was going through and is the first Dr that I felt was willing to help me get better. She asked questions and gave me answers to understand what I needed to do. She prescribed medications that seem to be working well. I have started to feel better for the first time in two years. Even though I live in central PA I want to continue with Dr Macaron as my GI doctor. I am very satisfied with the visit I had with her and hope to continue to get better with her help. Thank you so much, you are stuck with me Dr Macaron. Jane Snyder

The doctor was very helpful and took the time to listen to my problem.

Reviewed on Jun 1, 2020

She was the most caring, thorough, and genuine doctor I've met in a long time. She listened carefully to all of my concerns and worked with me on ways to make me more comfortable with that option, or chose something more fit for me. other doctors would deny me care for being uncomfortable with a medication, she understood and worked to find a better solution we were both totally comfortable with. I cannot praise Dr.Macron enough.
