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 2/26/2018, Dr. Lessa Ribeiro Neto 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. Ribeiro Neto's office was not in charge of scheduling my appointments. The Sarcoidosis Clinic Coordinator was responsible for this. I found it difficult to get a return call. It was a 14 hour drive and I explained the different organs that were affected and was assured that I would be able to see every specialty that Dr. Ribeiro Neto ordered the next day. This was not the case so I have to make a return trip. I simply cannot say enough good things about Dr. Ribeiro Neto! He was absolutely wonderful!

This is the finest medical staff I've ever seen, my experience could not have been better. Dr Ribeiro was extremely thorough and professional and yet very personable as well. He did not rush me and answered all of my questions clearly and completely. The nurses and reception staff were friendly and compassionate. I am newly diagnosed with this pulmonary issue and I arrived at Cleveland Clinic nervous and even a little scared. In no time I knew I was in good hands and I left feeling cared for and optimistic about my future health. God bless you all!

Dr. Ribeiro was so very approachable and gave ample attention to all of my questions and concerns. I did not feel rushed but I also felt like no time was wasted, he was concise and clear about my treatment plan. Having been told little to nothing by local doctors since diagnosis I was afraid I would be leaving frustrated but I left quite the opposite. I am very hopeful for my future and secure in the knowledge that I am in good hand with a truly compassionate, professional care provider.

Dr Ribeiro is very thorough during his exams. He takes plenty of time out to explain details to me and patiently explain results. I NEVER get the feeling that he is hurried or behind.
