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 5/30/2019, Dr. Bjelac 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.

Dr Bjelac is an awesome doctor. She took time to talk to my child about his allergies and answered all our question.

Wow! I am VERY impressed with Dr. Bjelac! Two allergists were recommended to me by a friend (doctor) who works at CCF. I chose Dr. Bjelac based on the reviews/comments by current patients. They were glowing - everyone recommending Dr. Bjelac, and I agree wholeheartedly. She took the time to answer all questions, made sure we understood everything that was going to be done, paused several times to ask if we understood and had more questions, seemed genuinely concerned about the welfare of my daughter, checked in on my daughter several times during testing, and explained everything along the way.

This was one of the most amazing experiences I have had with a doctor. I felt seen, heard and respected. She was thorough and knowledgeable but she relayed it in such an empathetic way. I was very emotional and she did not belittle my emotions. I could not be more satisfied. I look forward to continuing my daughter's care with her.

She showed a clear understanding of my concern and assured me that I came to the right place. She explained everything in a clear and understandable manner.

She was great! It was so nice of her to explain how, when and what I should be doing daily with my son. She described everything like my son was hers for me to better understand the importance of taking this medication for him. I really liked how much emotion she showed in caring for my son verses some doctors. Our experience was awesome with her.
