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 4/5/2019, Dr. Bongiorno 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 B & staff were very helpful & accommodating in scheduling appointments and surgery.

Reviewed on Jun 26, 2019

Very pleasant experience - Nurse Pam was extremely helpful as my MRI caused me to be late for my appt. Dr. Bongiorno took a good deal of time with me as it was my first visit with him. He was very clear with his information and requested one additional test, which is scheduled for August 1st.

dr bonjiorno agreed to call my primary physician in NY but he has not done so

Reviewed on Mar 27, 2019

I feel I received excellent care during the entire visit at CC. The staff members that I dealt with were very professional is their responses to my concerns . I left the appointment feeling that if I needed further medical attention, I would make another appointment with Dr. Bongiorno, Lauren, Pamela, and Outah, all of whom were GREAT!

Reviewed on Nov 3, 2018

Loved my doctor! Would recommend him 10x to anyone. I was also honored to have the chief (*Dr. Shefield) stop by.
