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 6/8/2020, Dr. Starenchak 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 S couldn't be better truly. First time I've attempted telehealth and there was literally no difference. Even when my WiFi had an issue, the doctor called my cell phone to continue the conversation before I even realized there was a connection challenge!

Dr. Starenchak takes time and interest during my appointment. Discusses everything brought up, provides options, explains treatment options. I liken Dr. Starenchek to a "health coach" who is on my team to provide the most healthy me.

I'm very happy I was able to find my doctor at the Cleveland Clinic, he always extremely friendly, listens and understands my view points on the topic. It is also refreshing to see him and feel like he treats me like a close friend/patient, he remembers my thoughts/views on treatments and works with me to find the best solutions to my concerns.

I was very impressed that the Dr spent so much time with me as is not usually the case at the Cleveland Clinic. I felt like I was not just another number to be pushed through the system, so much so, I've already referred him to my sister and a friend and it has only been a few days since my appointment.
