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.

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.

Dr. Carrie Hersh is truly a Godsend. Since coming under her care, I experienced - for the first time - attentive, compassionate, knowledgeable (EXPERT!) care since being assessed for MS. Before Dr. Hersh, all I got was a "run-around" from so-called "specialists" who were dispassionate and unknowledgeable about my suspected condition. Dr. Hersh ALWAYS explains every test thoroughly, as well as the results. She engages me in discussions about my mental, emotional and physical well/being and asks for my perspective about any next steps, if needed. I truly feel like I know fully what is happening with my body and am able to make informed and confident decisions about my healthcare. I value Dr. Hersh infinitely!!
