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 1/17/2021, Dr. Coviello 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.

in general, i like this location and hours of operation. it gives me the abilitiy to go to the doctor before work which is amazing. also, i felt the lab service was unmatched. however, the doctors complacency with treatment sucked. this visit was important to me. a lack of urgency on the doctors part was alarming. my symptoms have got worse and feel the need to seek care elsewhere. simply cannot recommend. doctors do need to be able to differentiate urgency and a general checkup visit

The care dr coviello provided was good. The problem I have is that he covered a bunch of topics all at once with out stopping to discuss each individually. He covered all my concerns, but I had difficulty remembering what was said after I left. The exit paperwork was helpful but I would have preferred to discuss each topic separately.

The care both the nurse and doctor provided was excellent. The nurse, particularly understood the positive psychological impact of connecting with patients. While I did provide information that this was a new patient, the doctor was not scheduled for adequate time. He was a bit time-stressed. However, the alternative would be no appointment. Therefore I appreciate the fact that my mother was able to see a competent doctor.

Dr Coviello's staff members were personable and very efficient. They took my symptom information, rebooked my pre-scheduled appointment and explained the process for determining COVID testing thoroughly. They forwarded the information to Dr Coviello. I saw the Dr. in a FaceTime session a short time later. Dr Coviello did a thorough review of my symptoms as well as the detailed background and nature of each. He also reviewed the recent bloodwork done and rescheduled my physical until early October. As always, Dr Coviello was thoughtful in his review and assessments, and efficient in his discussions. He went out of his way late that evening to call and let me know that I would hear from the task force to schedule my test the next day. After the test, he called me late that night to let me know that the test results were negative, which I greatly appreciated! all in all, I feel Dr Coviello is a thoughtful, competent physician who cares for his patients.
