Industry Relationships

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 11/19/2021, Dr. Vij 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. To learn more about Cleveland Clinic's policies on collaborations with industry and innovation management, go to our Integrity in Innovation page.

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.

* Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists subscribe to the guidance presented in the PhRMA Code on Interactions with Healthcare Professionals and the AdvaMed Code of Ethics on Interactions with Health Care Professionals. As such, gifts of substantial value are generally prohibited.

Dr Vij is always amazing

Absolutely outstanding. I was completely nervous and afraid, this was my first time ever having this type of appointment. Dr. Vij made me feel comfortable and relaxed. Huge weight off of my shoulders and no embarrassment.

As a fellow healthcare provider, I can say with confidence that Dr. Vij Is operating on a level of mastery of her knowledge, skills and craft, that is beyond exceptional.

Dr. Vij and nurses are kind and professional. Highly recommend.

Reviewed on Jan 26, 2022

Dr. Vij, and the other doctor who I sadly can't recall his name were very patient with all my questions and explained in great detail what my condition was!

Reviewed on Dec 13, 2021

Dr Vij was great in the consult and the procedure went really well. Learned about her via a friend's recommendation and will definitely recommend her to others.

Reviewed on Nov 22, 2021

Dr Vij was very professional and answered all my concerns.

Reviewed on Oct 20, 2021

Dr. Vij showed the utmost respect to my medical issue and made me feel very comfortable in asking questions. Her sincere interest in my condition and how I should proceed gave me a very positive outlook moving forward. I was especially pleased that she was very gentle and sensitive during my examination. I have had a much less positive exam with a physician several years ago. Her final comment of not hesitating to contact her if I had further concerns or issues was very reassuring.

Reviewed on Sep 8, 2021

I enjoy consulting with Dr. Vij because we discuss intelligent options. Her recommendations are the best for the situation in our ongoing discussions.

Reviewed on Aug 6, 2021

Very positively impressed with Dr Vij and her team.
