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.

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.

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.

I have a more complicated case and therefore took more time. Dr. De worked me in 3 times in one day - 2 consultations and one set of tests. By the end of the day, we had a diagnosis and a surgical plan in place. That's everything I could have hoped for.

My only issue with Dr. De was that during our appointment, she received a phone call that she needed to take. She was gone for about five minutes. Just a minute or two later, a knock came on the door to let her know that our time was up. She stated that she was running behind. Other than that, She was very thorough and came up with a game plan to begin.

Dr De is double five star. Very empathetic and very astute. I have already recommended her. And believe me I am a tough critic

Reviewed on Apr 3, 2019

Dr. De had read the case history that I prepared for her, so we were immediately able to move to a discussion of treatment options, procedures and assocIated risks and benefits. She used a printed diagram that helped illustrate the organs involved and the problem I'm suffering. She gave me this diagram with her notes for my reference.
