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 10/26/2022, Dr. Gutnick 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.

I had video problems on my end. My fault, my problem. Dr. Gutnick called me right away! Very appreciative for that.

Dr. Gutnick saved my life in an emergency surgery. Since then in each follow-up I have felt he cared about me as a whole person, not just caring about checking my incision, but helping me take care of other aspects of my recovery and health. He is very kind and compassionate. I hope I don't need any more surgeries, but if I did I would trust him with my life again.

I want a physician who will be candid and tell me the "whole" story rather than not including me in the process. I felt Dr. Gutnick did an excellent job of explaining the various procedures as well as their associated pros and cons. Definitely what I'm looking for in a consult.

I am responding to these questions about my experience by PHONE, not by a video visit, since the video performance did not work. Despite the failed technology, my phone appointment with Dr. Guttnick was very good!

With regard to Dr. Gutnick (and his staff), you need a category 10! They are above and beyond VERY GOOD . Thank you.

Reviewed on Oct 31, 2022

The video visit went extremely well I thought. I always prefer a "face-to-face" visit but sometimes it just isn't warranted or time efficient. This was great as I am, as I told Dr. Gutnick, very "pro-active" and want to do everything I can virtually if it will speed up the process and get the surgery completed. I just can't wait to "get better" .

Reviewed on Oct 12, 2022

I was very impressed with the time Dr. Gutnick took with me before and after the procedure. His entire team was exceptional!
