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 8/13/2019, Dr. Yu 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. Yu was excellent. Patient, informative, confident and competent. My wife and I both felt listened to and cared for at the end of our visit.

Reviewed on Dec 24, 2019

Dr. Yu seemed disorganized and uninformed. She did not communicate fully and, as a result, I have to have my test done again. She was very rushed during our in-person appointment, and seemed distracted. She also didn't discuss prep for my EEG, and did not tell me to withhold any medications. As a result I took medicines that impacted the exam and have to do the exam again. When I talked on the phone with her about it after the test, and we discussed my medication regimen, she said "that was my bad." She also hasn't had much to offer at all regarding any plan for moving forward. The entire experience has been very disappointing and I will not be making future appointments with this doctor.

Dr You asked me to tell her about my symptoms from the beginning and listened attentively. She made recommendations based on what I told her and took a proactive approach, advising me as to what she thought would work the best for me and then asked if I agreed. I realized that she was right about a couple things I wasn't aware of. I liked her immediately and I think she is very competent. I will drive almost 100 miles to see her on an ongoing basis.
