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 5/28/2019, Dr. Hornacek 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. Hornacek is the best of the best! She is patient, kind and explains things in laymans terms.

Reviewed on Jun 5, 2019

She is a very nice doctor. She always asks how I am doing. If you have a question all you have to do is ask her and she will try to answer it. She's not one of those doctors that's in and out. She treats you like a person and not a number. She is very friendly and makes you feel comfortable

dr hornacek and staff are very courteous and seem to care about your needs

Reviewed on Oct 5, 2018

Overall my experience was very good, the provider was a little behind, but I didn't mind because she spent the necessary time required with my follow-up care. I left feeling I got everything I required from that visit and she cared about me as a person/patient.

Reviewed on Sep 24, 2018

great experience overall, I have never had a Doctor ever explain things so well and actually show me my scans. I am completely shocked in a good way!

My appmnt w/ Dr. Hornecheck was for 3:15. I never left CC until after 5:00 pm. Obviously, I waited off and on to be seen. It seemed to take too long between nurse visit, intern exam, and then Dr. Hornecheck to arrive. She did spend time w/ me and I felt confident on her knowledge of my disease, but I feel I waited too long.

Reviewed on Jul 5, 2018

Not sure but think wait time may have been due to doctor consulting with physician I saw that morning. However no one came into the exam room or told me it would be 40 minutes. This was an unscheduled visit so the wait was understandable. Just think someone could have told me that she was consulting with other doctor.
