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 3/31/2020, Dr. Rood 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.

This appt was easy but I'm concerned that my Cleveland Clinic primary MD in Vero Beach, FL has been unavailable several times transitioning to new portal/system. Phones and VM down, the new system is not user friendly, unable to select my own physician for a telehealth appt and unable to get phone call through. Happened several different times of need. Terrible. I used unknown provider as semi-urgent need. Dr Rood great but I shouldn't have needed to resort to using him. This is second time phone and portal access a problem since new system implemented. Rx refill- terrible system. You can't find previous Rx. I finally figured out how to request through different pharmacy as I have 2 homes. You don't receive notice that request has been received. There isn't a way to send email and when phones don't work, if you can even get through, VM doesn't work. I'm a HCP and understand system integration difficulties but THE Cleveland Clinic should certainly be able to provide a more robust patient portal as so much focus on telehealth. Love Dr. Hurst No issue with him or his office but technical difficulties big turn-off.

Dr. Rood, aside from being the smartest person I know, has been taking care of me for almost 20 years. He is THE most fantastic primary care physician I have ever had. He knows everything about everything, but is hardly egotistical. He treats all his patients with understanding, dignity and respect. He offers new and different treatments that WORK. I consider him my friend.

Dr. Rood is an excellent listener. He always takes the time to explain treatment or medications, if any, and this visit was no exception. His ability to explain clearly his thinking on my health, test results and treatment, if any, is one of his strengths. He does not rush through an appointment. He will give me the time and attention the discussion/question requires.

Dr. Rood is always willing to discuss any concerns I may have. He talked to me a great length about Covid-19. Exposure, treatments, vaccinations, etc. I appreciate that he talks to me as a teacher and doesn't talk down to me. And he always acts as though he has all the time in the world to talk to me. Even though he doesn't. He never rushes me.

It was a very good experience visiting Dr. Rood. They got me in very quickly. The checkup was also done quickly. The nurse had called ahead of time to ask some questions so my visit would go quickly. It went very quickly and very smoothly.

My wife and i have always had excellent service at both Hillcrest and Geauga County facilities. This includes doctors who have taken time to clearly explain any health issues, what needs to be done about them and what we might expect. Also, staff people, nurses, desk personnel and others. We trust Cleveland clinic.
