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 10/4/2018, Dr. Vij 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.

Dr. Vij was so kind and caring and full of empathy. He took his time explaining every step of the procedures. He gave me plenty of time to ask questions. I could tell the staff had a very busy morning, but that did not affect the time they spent with me at all. Everyone was so understanding and patient with me.

My husband and I visit annually for appointments. It's a 4 hour drive, and coordinating all appointments can be a challenge. Dr.Vij was kind enough to work us into his schedule at the end of a day for our visits. I will start the process earlier next year!

First time seeing Dr. Vij. I was so impressed with the way he explained in detail what was going to happen and what was happening during the procedure. He gave me options and respected my thoughts and decision. He is an excellent doctor and I would highly recommend to all.

Truly Cleveland Clinic deserves its reprutation. It is a class facility. Dr Vij was very attentive and watched over all the work done by the Mols resident. offered to do stitches if I did not want resident to do it. Resident was very qualified so after it heals the results will be known. Sent a note several days ago but have not gotten a response yet, not critical but would be nice to know answer. Would definitely go there again if situation warented.

Much has changed for the better since I was last at Cleveland Clinic, March 2017. Registration was much improved. Dr. Vij has always been courteous, concerned, and highly competent.

Dr. Vij took time to explain exactly what Ican expect during the Moh's surgery.All went well.

Dr Vij provided outstanding care. He listened intently to my concerns, answered any questions I had, and took the time to fully explain treatment options. This outstanding care is in stark contrast to what my primary care provider stated on my dermatologic issue (immediately dismissed the issue and said there is "nothing" that can be done). Dr Vij presented several treatment options and gave me confidence that the issue can be resolved with a positive outcome. Dr Vij is an exceptional health care provider and I would absolutely recommend him.

Dr. Vij never made me feel like he was rushing to get done or end our conversation. Explains things clear and understandable. I am glad I chose Dr. Vij for my procedure.
