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 11/16/2017, Dr. Schwartz 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.
* Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists subscribe to the guidance presented in the PhRMA Code on Interactions with Healthcare Professionals and the AdvaMed Code of Ethics on Interactions with Health Care Professionals. As such, gifts of substantial value are generally prohibited.

The Dr was rude, disrespectful, and disinterested. This was more than a potential bad day, he was terrible. I hope we never come in contact with him again. His staff was terrific - I feel for them.

Dr. Schwartz gave me good instructions that were difficult for me, but ended up helping me through a very frightening experience. But I didn't find him to be kind or caring. I felt that he didn't really want me as a patient.

I saw Dr. Schwartz for a colonoscopy. And I will see him again in 6 months as the test results deem it so. Dr. Schwartz was very helpful in explaining the procedure before but more importantly he was very thorough afterwards in explaining what he found and what we are going to do about it! And he was kind to me.

The Dr. I saw did not give me any information about the medication and only told me to call if I had any of the side effects. I was informed to only call if there were issues and then see him in 3 months.

The doctor printed pictures of my esophagus, explained why I should stay on my medications and told me to reschedule in 3 years. My last endoscopy was 3 years ago! I don't have to do this every 3 months; this is not routine medicine.

I respect the provider knowing his limitations and referring me to a more knowledgeable provider for my condition.
