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.

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.

Doctor Orenstein is the best

Reviewed on Apr 11, 2019

Dr. Ornstein always is courteous, respectful and shows concern about how I am dealing with my condition. He is always happy to answer any and all questions we have. The answers are comensurate with our level of knowledge and respectful. His explanations are crucial to our understanding of our treatment and the options we have going forward. Unlike other experiences with health care providers in the past, Dr. Ornstein clearly is familiar with me as a person and with my entire medical history including most recent developments. He carefully and fully explains test results and their significance to my treatment. From our first appointment, my wife and I felt comfortable with Dr. Ornstein and confident with his knowledge and advice. That he is fully cognizant of evolving research and treatment options is obvious and contrbutes to our confidence in his advice and explanations. We have the highest respect for him and deeply appreciate the time he spends with us and the concern and respect for my wife and I that lies at the heart of our every encounter with him.

Dr. Moshe Ornstein is definitely a wonderful doctor, with a great sense of humor, that makes you feel at ease, and, more able to handle a severe medical condition, I might also add, that he is a fine asset to the Cleveland Clinic! I had a appointment with another Dr., but needed to see Dr. Ornstein , so, he stayed late to get me in, in order that I not need to make another long trip! It was so nice of him to take me in on the same day, without an appointment! He accurately assessed my condition, gave me easy to follow, step by step instructions, and, exactly what to expect while taking the medications he prescribed. Because of his fine expertise, My numbers for my stage 4 prostate cancer, are all dropping to near normal! I love this doctor, and, you will too!
