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 5/21/2018, Dr. Patterson 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.

Really enjoyed Dr.Patterson exam but I wish he would have explain why I couldn't get knee medication. He just said that would make my pain worse.

After I broke my foot and dislocated my ankle last year, Dr Patterson was my surgeon. He took very good care of me, and after this last visit, he informed me that this would be my last visit with him. I thank him for his professionalism and his kind smile, that he always greeted me with. He also has an excellent listening ear. He's definitely a keeper!!!!

I have known this provider for a long time. He cared for my injury 25 years ago. Dr Patterson is the one doctor I trust for any issues with my knee. The visit went well with only one problem...for whatever reason, my x-rays were not available to review. He surmised my problem with a suggestion of taking Tylenol for pain. He did say he would call me on the following Monday to explain my x-rays in full. Unfortunately I did not hear from him. I did see my x-ray report on MyChart but would appreciate an explanation in laymens terms. What to do if pain persists or gets worse. With my past history what options would be available.

I wasn't checked out. The doctor said bye I said bye and we parted ways.
