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.

provider doesn't seem thorough,goes too fast through , didn't read records and missed a potential reaction with medication. I caught the error and brought to her attention. she seems not confident and doesn't explain anything well

Reviewed on Sep 19, 2018

I would not see Dr. Chacon again. I saw her for an initial dermatology appointment since all of my other doctors are at CCF. She gave me the least thorough dermatology screening I've ever had. She had a brightly lit magnifier that she used to scan (easily viewed parts of) my body but only looked at the device if I showed her something about which I was concerned. I feel like it was a waste of an appointment. I absolutely would not recommend her.
