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 6/22/2023, Dr. Barron 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.

Dr. Rachel Barron was the best doctor I've had in my literal entire life. She was very open to questions and even encouraged it. If I didn't understand something, she had absolutety no problem explaining it in further detail. When I asked about something and my options, she explained it all and gave me an explanation on which was best for waht issue. I am so grateful that she was my doctor because she was absolutely amazing. If I am unfortunate enough to have another problem like I did, I am going to her,no questions asked.

Dr. Barron is one of the best doctors I have ever had. She is clearly very knowledgable and intelligent, yet warm and approachable. It is my hope that every woman could have treatment from someone like her. She is clearly an advocate for her patients and I'm very appreciative of her time and insights.

I will say that Dr. Barron made further orders for me and I can see them in MyChart, but they are not clickable, and therefore I need to call and make the appointment. This is not a mistake on her part by any means, but the Cleveland Clinic team frequently points to using MyChart, but it is frustrating when the tool does not work as expected.
