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.

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.

I have recently started using Dr. Heinz. I am very pleased with his care. He explains and draws charts to show me what is happening with my condition. I understand my condition more than I have in the past 25 years.

Dr. Hiens - This was by far the worst experience I have ever had with a doctor. I was told that women, including myself, were often hysterical when it came to heart problems, that the increases in coronavirus cases that the CDC has reported were wrong, that masks do absolutely nothing to protect people, and that "the Democrats want to keep things closed and cause the economy to fail." I was talked down to and told that my generation of millennials (which I am not) are so coddled that we create/imagine illnesses that we don't really have. Once he found out that I had a Mirena IUD, suddenly that was the cause of all of my health issues... even though the Mirena was a medical necessity due to my heavy periods which caused low iron and various other issues. I had to schedule a follow-up for an echocardiogram and I will be calling to see if I can schedule it with a different doctor, hopefully not sexist and rude. On a bright note, the other staff at the hospital were very nice and thoughtful.
