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.

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.

Dr. Click is an excellent provider and I travel over 200 miles each way to have him direct my care since my condition is fairly complex and difficult to manage. I gave the providers in my area a shot and they were not satisfactory so I decided to come to the Cleveland Clinic and Dr. Click in order to "get fixed" and so far the level of care and knowledge has been far superior with Dr. Click and other Cleveland Clinic providers and staff. I am finally getting better after deciding to utilize Dr. Click and hopefully will be able to keep my condition under control since it is incurable.

Very satisfied with the woman in the clinic who helped arrange my appointment and advised me about changes that had been made since my last video type appointment. Except for my anxiety of whether I'd downloaded everything properly and was in the waiting room where Dr. Click could find me, all went smoothly.

I have had Crohn's Disease for the past 13 years and I have never had a more caring, thoughtful, and respectful gastroenterologist like Dr. Click. I never feel rushed in our appointments and he always asks me how I feel about current treatment or upcoming procedures and plans. After every appointment, I feel heard as a patient and that has been hard to come by in my past experiences. I am so grateful Dr. Click was assigned to me as my doctor!
