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 12/9/2019, Dr. De 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. To learn more about Cleveland Clinic's policies on collaborations with industry and innovation management, go to our Integrity in Innovation page.

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.

Was not sure of Dr. De as I had Dr Freed. He was a wonderful Dr. But to my surprise Dr De was wonderful also. Very caring for her patients needs.

Reviewed on Dec 23, 2019

Dr. De is a fantastic physician. she is extremely polite, understanding and professional. Dr. De NEVER makes me feel like I am being rushed. She always takes the time to listen to my questions and concerns and provides very informed feedback. In addition, Dr De is just nice. Sometimes that is all that we need, a little bit of kindness and some genuine interaction. I know that all of the CC docs are busy she never makes me feel like she doesn't have time to discuss my care in detail. I hope that she gets to read this review. in a time where it's all about speed and getting people in and out, Dr De allows for whatever time it takes.

Dr. De is a brilliant, skilled and surgeon, but even more wonderful is that she doesn't have the "surgeon's attitude." In my dealings with her she has always treated me in a caring, informative, human manner. My questions were fully answered without talking down to me. Her explanations are concise and on point. Dr. De's outstanding educational background is evident in the way she delves into problems and crafts answers.
