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 7/5/2023, Dr. Goldman 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.

Danielle facilitated the appointment. She got us in quickly and Dr. Goldman was as caring, kind, and as wonderful of an advocate as she has always been!

The minute Dr. Goldman walked in the room, she put us at ease. Her bed side manners were top notch! She explained the entire process to us step by step and her entire team took care of my daughter the day of the procedure. Thank you!

She was wonderful. Treated us beyond my expectation's.

This doctor was a very lovely lady. I enjoyed her caring demeanor towards my son. She respectfully spoke to him directly even though his capacity for medical decision making is low. She seemed genuinely concerned about his weight issue, and did try her best to help us with scheduling follow up testing that was convenient for us. She also did not hesitate to engage her colleague to discuss my son's case as needed. She also apologized for the long wait.

I love the fact that Dr Goldman called the next day after our appointment to see if we had any questions. There was a lot discussed in our appointment and I very much appreciated her giving time to digest and see if we had questions. Excellent care!!
