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 1/1/2024, Dr. Garber has reported the financial relationships with the companies listed below. 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. Garber was very prepared for our 1st and 2nd sessions and provided new options that had not been provided to me through my local physicians (Cincinnati area). His follow up documentation and explanation of next steps was very clear and provided a path for me to follow to properly diagnosis and treat my condition. He was so easy to talk to and focused the entire time on reviewing what he knew of my case, asking questions and providing possible solutions . It was a very refreshing experience to be able to talk to a doctor that long and not feel rushed to communicate in 15 minutes.

Dr. Garber took the time to listen and understand my symptoms and previous history. He thoroughly explained his thought process as to the best plan to proceed to determine what was causing the Issues. It Is Important to note that my previous doctor/surgeon, Dr. Church, had diagnosed and successfully treated the underlying cause of Issues that had been misdiagnosed for many years. When Dr. Church retired, I was concerned that it would be a challenge to find a doctor as competent and that I could feel comfortable and confident in. My husband and I feel that Dr. Garber is that person.

It was challenging to find a doctor and also to get an appointment. Dr. Steele's assistant, Mel, was instrumental in getting me to Dr. Garber and securing an appointment in a timely manner after an appointment to see Dr. Steele (that had been made for about 6 weeks) was cancelled a week prior.
