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 11/30/2022, Dr. Lisi 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.

The best service for an entire group, I have ever gotten from anywhere. Dr Lisi , is God as far as I am concerned. Would say to anyone, If you want the very best, remember, they are great and very must preferred, so, it is worth the wait you may have, but, it is sooooo worth it. .

I originally saw Dr. Lisi due to a blockage- one of several over time. Dr. Lisi READS ALL of his patients records with a sharp mind. In the past h edelayed my procedure until current testing could be done. There was a safety concern. During his pre-op h I shared that recent care noted two recent diagnosises that could be contributing to my pain. I was amazed that he took the time to not only provide the findings from my procedure but ALSO included a rec for a CAT scan that might help resolve my pain. He works a problem thoroughly and completes treatment by looking at ALL possibilities and communicates too.

EVERYTHING about Dr. Lisis's practice is ideal. An ideal listener, startegic problem solver, respectful, with communication that is tops. His practice runs well with the teaming of his first rate nurse, Jordan. Both are professional. Both show no signs that Covid has worn them out. They run on time too! I wish all physicians could emulate Dr. Lisi. I have had difficult expereinces with other treating physicians. Dr. Lisi and his nurse, Jordan, Ideal team that served me with excellence and reflect the ideals of professionalism.

We could not be more pleased with them both and when you have health issues that is so important. Thank you again Dr. Lisi and Jordan.
