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 4/2/2019, Dr. Shifrin 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.

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.

I have and will always recommend Dr. Shifren to my friends and family. He is the perfect balance of a kind, easy to speak to doctor and a concerned professional when the occasion calls for him to be. With regard to Item #6 above "degree to which provider cared for you as a person" the answer of "very good" is not an adequate evaluation of his caring. He is exceptional!!!!

Reviewed on Dec 17, 2018

My only objection was the providers communication with my insurance company and the obvious mis-trust that they would be paid upon submiting the claim to them, after me assuring them, and still requiring me to pay for the visit with cash. It is worth mentioning that the "promise to pay" had actually been faxed over by my insurance company 2 hours before my appointment.
