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 11/6/2018, Dr. Gottesman 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. Gottesman was great. Listened to my decision about dropping Prilosec and what prompted me, and then steered me in the right direction regarding dropping the supplements taken in place of the acid reducer. And things are fine without them and Prilosec.

Dr. Gottesman is very thourogh. There are many variables to consider when evaluating my particular difficulty.

I live 4 hours from Cleveland and Dr. Gottesman is the only gastro Doctor I will go to. I have been seeing him for 25 years, and I don't want to go see another Doctor. His staff has always been so nice and take the time to make sure I know what is going on. They are so easy to talk to. In my Book, Dr. Gottesman is the best. I would suggest my family and friends go to him if they have a digestive problem or need a colonoscopy. He is such a great asset to the Cleveland Clinic.

Dr. Goodman was very disappointing, disrespectful and I was very upset when I left his office. I could not believe that he could actually tell me that I had the FLU. I have been in pain, throwing up, hurting so bad for months. And all he can say is that I have the flu. I felt I needed a second opinion and that's what I did. I would not ever recommend him to anyone. very bad experience.

To be honest, I could go on and on and on about this doctor and his staff and my experience. I COULD NOT have been, in any way, ANY better, and I had a colonoscopy, so that should in some way tell you about the actual procedure and put it in context. I can't say enough about the professionalism and courtesy from A to Z.

If it's possible, they made a colonoscopy almost non invasive. Great doctor and staff.
