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 5/18/2017, Dr. Garren-Hudson 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. Garren Hudson approaches my care collaboratively with me, taking into consideration my concerns, making recommendations, while not pushing a care plan I'm not comfortable with. I appreciate her continued communication with me between appointments through My Chart. Really helpful.

I think so highly of this doctor (Hudson) that I have recommended her to close family and friends - who are now her patients. She is a competent caring physician I have known her since she began practice here and I've never considered switching to another doctor. She listens and respects my inputs.

My experiences w/Dr. Hudson have ALWAYS been exceptional. I would suggest her to anyone I know. She has gone over and beyond my expectations. She has called w/concern w/my health during/not during her office hours. She is very concerned about the wholeness of an individual.

Dr. Hudson is very well-read on the latest medical findings and medications. She is very thorough. She gave me a requisition to have a thyroid ultrasound so I wouldn't have to pay the $50 co-pay for an endocrinologist. She examined my back for possible skin cancer so I wouldn't have to pay the $50 co-pay for a dermatologist. She is polite, professional, respectful, and caring and I have recommended her to many people. She has been my primary care physician for about 20 years, and I hope I never have to have to change doctors.

As I said before, I spent 30-45 minutes with a 3rd year med student. When Dr. Hudson came in it was obvious that she was in a very big hurry and she said at the outset that she was not going to have time to cover all of my concerns.
