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 2/1/2024, Dr. Cetin 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.

Dr. Cetin was very professional, totally nonjudgmental, explained things in a way I could understand, and offered treatment to help me prepare for surgery. He spent quite a bit of time with me discussing all of the information that I needed. I was very comfortable talking with him and asking questions

My original appointment was canceled 2 weeks before due to a problem that came up the morning of May the 7th. They wanted to give us an appointment later in the day which didn't work for us. We told them that we were coming back for an appointment with a different doctor they fit us in in the afternoon. We arrived almost 2 hours early for our appointment and they had a late patient and put in that slot. That got us on the road early so we would miss peak traffic driving home. We were very thankful!!!

Going to a weight management doctor and being in the low 200s, I was a little worried my concerns wouldn't be taken seriously since there are more severe cases. But Dr. Cetin made me feel seen and heard and really took the time to make me feel like he cared about my general health. He wanted to come up with a plan specifically for me, not the general fix all. I really appreciated how he handled the appointment, I didn't feel like just another number. I have already recommended him to others.

Dr. Cetin did an AMAZING job! It almost seemed as if I was in office the way that he thoroughly explained the questions that I had and what I should do. He most definitely seemed concerned and as if he wanted to help me on a journey which will be a new journey for me as well. Also on issues that I don't even recall being I formed about before. Definitely would recommend him to others.
