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.

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.

I was so thankful that my doctor along with Dr Anderson were so quick to get this appointment set up. It was the first time our oncologist had ever done a tele-med appointment and we were both pleasantly surprised. Dr. Anderson was so helpful and had so much knowledge when speaking about best treatment options for my daughter's osteosarcoma. I definitely see why he is mentioned so much on the Facebook osteosarcoma group pages! i am so happy I decided to come to him for a second opinion. thank you as well the Cleveland clinic for offering this tele-med appointment so that people like me, who live in another state can still get an appointment in without having to travel.

Dr. Anderson is very courteous and caring. He showed concern and answered all our questions. He provided us with a plan of care and explained why he believed it would benefit our son. He was very caring towards Luis and we are so grateful for that. As parents, we would highly recommend him. Plus, Luis has already recommended him in his Ewings Support group.

The staff and doctor are amazing. We would highly recommend a video conference. However, there is nothing like meeting the doctor in person. We are so grateful for Cleveland Clinic. They make getting the care you need so easy and when fighting cancer that is exactly what you need. As a parent facing a child with cancer, it is a relief to know your child is in good hands, it is hope, quality care, and peace of mind.
