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 6/20/2023, Dr. Bucklan 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.

I waited for five weeks for a zoom appointment set for June 7. At that appointment, Dr. Bucklan apologized for the "awkward" fact that because I live out-of-state, she could not meet me as a new patient via zoom. She offered to facilitate some next steps, but I have not heard from her yet. I called her office on June 9, and was told she would be in touch. Nothing so far.

Reviewed on Jun 7, 2023

My experience has been discouraging so far, due to the long wait and then the fact that Dr. Bucklan couldn't speak with me due to my state of residence (New York). I am still hoping Cleveland Clinic will reach out to me to schedule next steps.

From booking a hotel room at the Holiday Inn at Cleveland Clinic, to scheduling an appointment with a specialist, and the willingness to help patients and their families have the best experience at their facility as possible, my experience at Cleveland Clinic was the best experience with any medical facility that I have ever had! I am extremely glad I chose to see Dr. Bucklan regarding my issues, and I am glad to know that I can return to Cleveland Clinic (if need be) in the future and can expect top notch care from everyone involved with the facility!
