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 11/30/2018, Dr. Riley 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.

Excellent provider. In fact I just moved to the area and based on my experience that excellent physicians tend to know other excellent physicians, I asked this provider for references for a primary care physician and a urologist.

I was surprised that the doctor didn't sit down when she came in to see me. I don't know if she looked at my recoord or not. asked maybe one question. asked which of 3 options I wanted without explaining and I started to ask about one and she said yeah that will probably work and to set up the appointments but it was for a treatment I had questions about. I knew she was in a hurry and decided to look it up on my own and then decided not to do it.

This is my first time with the Cleveland Clinic and I am very pleased. The waiting times were minimal, which was pleasing. And, the level of attentiveness to my questions and concerns were exemplary. Out of all the doctors that I've seen in the past for my health issue, this provider gave me the confidence that she was going to do what need to be done to get my health back on track.

It took 3 months to get an appointment with a dermatologist. It seems like a long time between calling for an appointment and actually seeing a doctor.

patients so often describe their satisfaction level on such a non- medical aspects such as personality . I am basing my satisfaction on positive patient outcomes. Dr. Riley and staff promote an informed collegial relationship to educate and provide the highest level of patient interactions. After her complete assessment of my medical issues , she provided open and informative discussion of conditions, options and plans. She sought my input and validated my concerns. To insure timely follow up , she and her medical assistant Courtney accommodated me with an appointment that main office scheduling at CCF was unable to provide. This is pro- active positive patient care. Thank you to Dr Riley and staff .
