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 6/12/2018, Dr. Brown 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.

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.

My principal residence is in Florida. I came to the Cleveland Clinic to seek better care than is available in Florida. I learned more about my condition in a matter of minutes with Dr. Brown than I have learned from local doctors in many years. He saw things that no one has seen before. He likely saved my life by finding potentially life threatening conditions. He called me after the appointment to see how the process was going. Dr. Brown's knowledge, manner and concern has been such that the Clinic will now be the only place I seek for care, regardless of where I live. I have referred many people to the Clinic over the years and will continue to do so. I am appreciative beyond words for the care of the Clinic and, especially, that of Dr. Brown.

I was very worried about my health not knowing what was wrong. The doctors where I live didn't know what was wrong with me. I called the Cleveland clinic to get in and did get an appointment however it was too far away. I did talk with someone in the office and they were able to get me in sooner which most likely saved my eyesight from going possibly blind! I am most thankful for the help I received to get me in a lot sooner! I like my doctor he is very informative, friendly and personable! He listens and answers questions clearly! I love that you have email communication with the doctor when needed for concerned health problems! My doctor was extremely fast in answering my concerns! I thank him for that! Wonderful!
