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.

Dr. Carrie Hirsch was wonderful. She not only provided me with her expert opinion, she very thoughtfully listened to and evaluated my complicated medical history for my own benefit. She also thoroughly explained the results of my MRI as it applied to her study answering my questions regarding terminology. Last, she offered direction regarding the complexities of my condition and helped me sort out my priorities moving forward. I strongly recommend Dr. Hirsch to anyone who suspects they have MS.

I don't normally do surveys, but Dr. Hersh was hand down the best doctor I've seen in a long time.

Dr. Hersh listened to everything thing I had to say and any concerns I had and made me feel like she cared and was in my corner!
