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 12/27/2017, Dr. Wu 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.

What I find very frustrating the most doctors do not really "listen to the patient" and will often be very dismissive of what a patient might feel is going on with them. I do believe patients are in tune with their own bodies and realize when something is not right. For example, I mentioned I am having knee pain and it started after I started taking Lipitor again. I was told that no I would have knee pain all the time if it was caused by the Lipitor. So I was sent for Xrays and of course they were negative. After I got home I looked back in my medical record found 10 years ago they had sent me for knee Xrays because I had knee pain and 10 years ago I was on Lipitor! When I was on Simvastatin I did not have the knee pain. Coincidence I do not think so. But this happens quite frequently, that my opinions gets dismissed and I leave feeling frustrated.

Dr. Wu is an excellent provider. I usually only call when I have a specific new problem, or to be tested for the level of my once constant medication, but Dr. Wu always addressed those preventative issues anyway. I like that he says, "WE should do this...," OR "We should do that..." - You feel that he is pulling for you. And, he is a master of MyChart! I am amazed at how quickly he addresses test results. In reference to this survey, I have not yet had the appt. with the specialist Dr. Wu referred me to. His office DID try to get me in July 7th, but we live most of the time in South Carolina, so my appt. will be Aug. 24th, as I would not be in Cleveland then (July 7th).

Dr. Wu leaves no stone unturned. He invariably summarizes the visit, does prescriptions and orders tests, etc if needed and makes certain we have no residual questions. He's as good as they get!
