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 9/4/2018, Dr. Arce 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 Arce is the third endo physician I have seen. I drive 1 1/2 hours to see her because she is so knowledgeable and helpful. She is the only physician who has been able to help me with my thyroid issues. I have had great success in the year and a half I have been her patient. she is an amazing physician and wonderful asset to Cleveland clinic.

Dr Arce explained everything to me, she explained to me where I was, and where I needed to get to. Dr Arce explained to me about the medication I was taking and why I needed to take it. She explained my follow-up and why she needed to see me back on the follow-up. What more can you ask for.

The care provider was behind schedule and she rushed to get me out. Since this was my first exam with her it should have been longer. Although I had many problems the doctor did not have time to deal with them and told me I should make an appointment with a internal medicine doctor for the problems.
Reviewed on May 31, 2018
I was not informed of a 15 minute delay when I arrived, and after 30 minutes I was told there was another 30 minute delay. Then when I saw the nurse and the doctor I was rushed out with the staff never getting my insulin pump data and not even mentioning my blood pressure was elevated to me. The nurse and doctor appeared to be rushed. For my first visit this was very inappropriate. There was no apoplogy or even mention that since they were running late they had to rush me out.

I felt as though I was being rushed since the doctor was behind schedule and she did not deal with all my problems. Even those problems she dealt with I was not satisfied with.
