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.

Dr. Martin was very kind. He was also prompt. I waited only a few minutes even though I was 15-minutes early. He explained my condition and gave two different options in case the first one didn't work out. Very helpful and professional.

i went to see Dr Martin after 2 trips to a CC urgent care for a severe rash. I saw a different care provider at each visit and they both had different diagnosis. The second provider put in a referral to dermatology but they never contacted me. I got into Dr. Martin quickly. He explained thoroughly the correct diagnosis (both urgent care providers were wrong). He listened to my history and explained the diagnosis thoroughly. He even gave me a copy of his Epic notes so I could do my own research
