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 11/12/2018, 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.

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.

Doctor is great. Explained all and is an asset to the Clinic

I had an all around poor medical experience. My doctor's poor bedside manner and inability to accept that she dropped the ball were just disappointing. I expected so much more from the CCF.

Dr. Vij made me feel very comfortable. She is very knowledgeable and talked me through what her plan was for me.

I decided to switch to Cleveland Clinic's Urology specialist because the UH urology department left much to be desired. Dr. Vij made me feel like a valued patient. I'm so glad that I made the switch.

Dr provided with various options for the condition and she listened to our concerns very carefully. Very happy with the Dr.

Dr. Sarah Vij is an excellent communicator and superb diagnostician. I would recommend her without any reservation. She is truly outstanding.

Reviewed on Apr 2, 2018

When I arrived, I checked in and wad directed to sit against the wall and a nurse would be there to assist. 25 minutes later, I had to ask if I was supposed to be somewhere else, and could hear my name being announced upstairs. The nurse upstairs asked why I was seated down there, and I told her that is where they told me to go. It was just very unorganized for a hospital that is rated #2 in the Country, to have issues, as minor as this, happen. On the other hand, Dr. Vij was excellent as well as her direct staff.
