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. Wickenheiser is the best doctor I've ever had in any specialty. She includes me in decisions and always takes time discussing risks/benefits. She always takes into consideration my other medications and overall health before creating any treatment plan, making connections that other providers sometimes overlook.

She even thanked me for listening to my body and bringing up what I was feeling with the regimen that was first suggested for my Issue. Once she noticed that It wasn't working for me, she gave me another suggestion and made sure I felt comfortable with It. I truly appreciate that she listened me and heard me out.

She asked a lot of questions, but never explained why she was asking or how they were related to my issues. Nothing made sense. She gave me a bunch of advise but went way too fast. It felt very rushed. I asked if everything she suggested was going to be in my chart and she said there was a note section. I messaged her on my chart for help finding the information and she didn't even address my question. Still not sure and not need to go see a didn't provider. There were also two people on my call and I was confused as to who was the lead doctor. Honestly, she seemed annoyed and didn't have good bedside manner.
