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.

Dr. Anderson is amazing as far as we are concerned. He is always open to answering all the question and gave us hope during our child's relapse. He is extremely knowledgeable to the level of advising the OHSU senior doctors. We will continue to be in touch with him to keep getting inputs and advice as we work through our son's treatment.

Dr Anderson was so thorough and professional and careful in his selection of words in speaking about Ewing's. He was so polite and included my mother as much as possible since she is and has always been the driver of this bus. She and my aunt are nurses and I trust them to help make decisions and some doctors ignore their input.

Reviewed on Jun 26, 2023

Dr. Anderson was absolutely wonderful. He took the time to explain everything to us. We left with the feeling of understanding what our next step should be. I would recommend Dr. Anderson to anyone I know. He even made a PowerPoint so that my husband and I can understand what the test results were. I really appreciate his bedside manner during this difficult time that me and my family are dealing with. It felt like he was genuinely concerned about my treatment plan and how we should proceed. I wasn't just a number to him but a real person with real concerns.

Great vibes, Dr. Pete was very prepared on our consultation. It was obvious he dedicated his time and studied Denisa's chart. And that does not happen often. Kudos to him and his team. You truly feel his passion.

Dr Anderson was thoughtful, patient, respectful, and kind. I felt seen as an individual, and not as a disease, which in my experience is rare in the Western medical system.
