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 11/28/2018, Dr. Brenner 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.Brenner excells in all aspects. I was greeted in a very friendly manner and was made to feel comfortable immediately. I received a thorough exam and all of my concerns were addressed. Dr.Brenner followed through on my test results by personally giving me a phone call. That in itself impressed me and confirmed that I had chosen the best Doctor for my condition. I would,and will, highly recommend Dr. Brenner.

The doctor was running late due to an emergency that he handled. I was made aware of this; however, it did reflect on my answers.

Reviewed on Dec 11, 2018

Dr Brenner is very thorough but is always running significantly behind schedule. I needed to reschedule my original appointment because I was waiting 55 minutes to be seen and needed to leave for work. If I needed to see him more than every 6 months, I would most likely switch providers due to the extreme delays.

the last time I was there I had a little longer wait. but the nurse and Dr. Brenner explained there was an emergency with a patient before me. That was nice of them to tell me why the wait.

Reviewed on Oct 15, 2018

Dr. Brenner is an excellent provider and I trust him with my medical care.

Reviewed on Sep 26, 2018

The only problem I have with this provider is that he is ALWAYS late. This appt. I was his first of the day and he was 30 minutes late. He was not even in the building when I was taken to the exam room. The nurses seem exasperated with his lateness. They went so far as to say that he's always late coming in and insists on getting coffee even when patients are waiting for him. I find that inconsiderate.....that his time is more important than mine. I have always been aware that he runs late so I make my appointments for either the first of the day or right after lunch to avoid a lot of wasted time. I had to drive 1/1/2 hours to get to the office and I made sure I got there on time, why can't he get there on time?

Reviewed on Sep 4, 2018

Dr. Brenner is the best!

Reviewed on Aug 15, 2018

Very disappointed having to wait in the examine room for 1 hour before the doctor came to wait on me.
