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.

Under the circumstances of this "virtual" visit, my primary physician provided me with the same attention to my health care as she has always shown to me. I missed receiving the print out of our visit and will be following up with my in-home blood pressure monitor. per her instructions, I will have blood work drawn "some time this summer.". The steps that have been implemented to "socially distance" seniors with existing health conditions (I'm 67 and have asthma and my B/P tends to run a bit higher that ideal; the CCF satellite offices have done and are doing a terrific job in the protocol techniques being used to keep the patients and themselves as "protected" as possible from any form of possible transmission. I pray the warmer weather and use of air conditioning will not exacerbate the spread if this virus. All those with whom I've been in contact have been doing a great job as to following the safety protocols to reduce transmission in the offices. Setting up the Zoom calls, trying to maintain social distancing and wearing masks and gloves. Doctors, staff and patients are all working to help reduce further transmissions. I am grateful for everyone's attention to detail and their continued commitment to the care provided to the patients. We can all continue to help each other as we go forward as we deal each day with our efforts to protect others and ourselves.

I've always enjoyed a great relationship with Dr. Susan Lackey. Rather than doing the appointment via phone, I opted for the I-pad experience. It was easily set up via Email instructions from the Clinic. We discussed everything similar to what we would have discussed in her office. She is always prepared to discuss my health and I had notes in-hand with my usual questions. It went well!

Reviewed on May 18, 2020

I have already recommended to friends that they do video visits with their doctors rather than by phone. To be able to look at Dr. Lackey and see various expressions on her face and laughter made it so much more personal than by phone. She asked why my face was so red. If by phone visit, she would not have been able to notice this. This was important to me. It was a great experience.
