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.

Dr. Preston is the first doctor out of the dozen I have seen for this problem that has actually shown an interest in helping me combat the issue rather than just throwing random, expensive medications to "try it out." He listens to my concerns, explains in terms that are understandable, and makes an effort to make decisions together instead of just flatly making recommendations because he is the healthcare provider. He is an excellent listener, compassionate, and I can tell that he cares about his patients.

It was my first time seeing Dr. Preston and he was very attentive to my needs/worries/questions. He had thorough explanations for the medications and pathway he wanted to get me on to alleviate my symptoms. I appreciate that he let me talk about my medical history to the extent I felt necessary, there are a lot of physicians that stop me or cut me off instead of letting me share. I know a patient, especially a new patient, has a long history that is likely connected to their visit and Dr. Preston was willing to listen.

Dr. Preston and his entire team have advocated for me this year in several ways and I appreciate all of them. I came to this practice after my last allergist was indicted for clinical trial fraud and had to close his practice abruptly. This was a tough experience for me as a patient but Dr. Preston has been a wonderful new provider. I appreciate his expertise but also his ability to listen, relate to me as an allergy sufferer, as well as his sense of humor. Very happy to have found Dr. Preston - and I know others in the same boat as me last year with having to find a new doctor have been happy to find him, too.

I was very impressed by Dr. Preston. First, he took the time to read and know my medical records in detail. He looked at test results from the 1990's and factored my records into his analysis. Next, he looked at "the Big Picture," in that he focused on the whole person instead of being restricted to his specialty and, therefore, was able to better direct my future care. Third, he communicated in a clear and understandable manner. He is obviously is an expert in his field and I was most comfortable in appreciating his opinions.
