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 7/13/2020, Dr. Testrake 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.

I have nothing but positive things to say about Dr. Testrake. He is personable, professional, and listens intently to this senior lady; he takes his time and explains everything.

Dr Testrake is very polite and concerned about my feet. The only thing I don't like is: I have always had the nurse message my feet with lotion and that was very soothing. I have always had that treatment. I asked the girl about that the last time and she said, "We don't do that". I just wonder why???

My first impression of Dr. Testrake was very good. He took the time to review my x-rays with me, and gave me a couple of options I had for treatment. He explained both and let me be a part in the decision. I've also never had a doctor before that takes the time to personally call me to check and see how I am doing. That was very nice of him to do that! Overall, I am very pleased so far.

Dr. Testrake is an excellent and exceptional physician! He spent time explaining my issues with my foot, reviewed my x-rays in detail in a manner I understood. Explained in detail the surgical process he recommends. He went over and above in my opinion in comparison to the Columbus Orthopaedic surgeon who did my two previous foot surgeries. That surgeon did not give me this much pre-op explanation which I felt was necessary.
