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. Vargas and Danielle NP were very thorough and helped ease all my concerns and worries

Reviewed on Oct 15, 2020

Dr Vargas exceeded my expectations. he took the time (1:30) to review my scans, bloodwork and ultrasounds. he had a whiteboard which provided drawing of what would transpire in my upcoming procedure. you very seldom find a physician who takes the time to thoroughly review not only radiological findings, but focus on you directly. dr Vargas should be commended on his thoroughness, ability to put a patient at ease and his compassion. there are not many physicians today who take the time to explain but truly listen to a patient's concerns.
