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 2/9/2021, Dr. Regala 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 was very appreciative of nurse (physicians assistant) who went out of her way to assist me in getting to my car in the garage as the elevators were down and I was very concerned about my ability to walk two flights of stairs.

Dr Regala had never seen my Mom before. He very matter of factor without much eye contact told her she had Stage 4 cancer and that the cancer may have spread to her bones and brain. Told her to get a PET SCAN and MRI. He could have been telling her to get lemon Gatorade instead of cherry..that was level of empathy shown. In addition, he was very flippant about her pre-med needs for MRI , blowing them off as unnecessary! Her oncologist was waiting for test results to share her diagnosis, staging , prognosis and treatment. Dr Regala gave that information and had incomplete data to base a decision and then offered no Little explanation, saying talk to your oncologist after you take the tests!!!! He was horrible! My Mom had been handling the lung cancer diagnosis relatively well, given its surprise accurance. After the meeting with Dr Regala, she didn't get out of her chair or change her clothes for two days!!!! He needs to be behind a microscope, not bedside. He also changed her catheter taking no care to gently remove the tape so now I'm dealing with red, raw irritated skin where he just ripped off the tape in one big pull.Thank you Brian, for getting my Mom onto Dr Berwinkle,s schedule and away from this horrid little man , Regala.If I could rate Regala a ZERO, I would.
