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.

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.

Dr. Higley is a fantastic doctor. By far the best PCP I have ever been to. He not only used the text book ideas to resolve my problem, but also took into account his personal experience, and experience with other patients. Furthermore he was just a nice guy, who showed empathy and didnt make me go through unnecessary procedures/ pain (e.g. same exams i had done previously)

I've been seeing Dr. Higley for years now, ever since I was in high school. He has always taken my concerns about my health seriously, but I love how personable he is. He usually makes jokes which puts me at ease when doing a procedure like I recently just had with the birth control implant, or perhaps by just talking about difficult topics like weight. Always makes me feel comfortable and never makes me feel like I am an inconvenience to him.

Dr. Higley is not only the the best Dr. I've ever had in my life, if it's up to me he will be THE only Dr. I have! A few words that come to mind are thorough, honest, caring, listens and addresses my concerns, patience, respectable, calming and direct! When I was a child my Dr. (not Higley) overdosed me on anti seizure medicine and landed me in the hospital for a while. Ever since then I had a major trust issue with Doctors. that was until I was fortunate enough to get Dr. Higley as my PCP. Wherever he practices is where I will go for my healthcare needs. He has earned and will always have my trust!
