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 5/16/2018, Dr. Littlejohn 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.

I found Dr. Littlejohn to show interest in me as a person and not just as a clinical case. I felt very comfortable with her and very confident in her treatment of my medical situation.

Reviewed on Feb 1, 2019

The appointment was very rushed. It was a 4 1/2 hour drive for nothing to be answered. The provider was rushing, didn't give any suitable diagnosis or reason I'm feeling the way I have for 7 months, no testing, and didn't seem compelled to even figure out a diagnosis. Disappointed would be an understatement if describing my experience with the provider.

I really enjoyed dr. littlejohn and her resident overall. However the student spent a significant amount of time with me in the room and when the doctor came in, she seemed to be in a rush. in a-way, I felt that I was an inconvenience to her during her busy day. but I look forward to following up with her in November, and hope that she isn't in as much of a rush on that day. I will be traveling over 2 hours to have her as my rheumatologist, and I value her time as much as I hope she values mine. the student did an EXCEPTIONAL job asking questions about my health history.
