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 6/25/2020, Dr. Schatz 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.

The care and concern from every person I interacted with from the Vallet who went above & beyond to help me when he saw how overwhelmed I was and everyone from there in. Dr Schatz is not only the most amazing diagnostician but he is truly kind & sincere! How blessed I am to have found Him and Cleveland Clinic!

My husband and I *love* doctor Schatz. He lays out the options, with pros and cons, and then says "I will support you whatever you decide." He's also brought pieces to the puzzle of my persistent disability that have given us a lot of hope. Regarding the video visit, we were unable to connect that way, but had a perfectly fine appointment by phone.

Again - Dr. Schatz is fantastic. Efficient, an effective communicator, focused on underlying causes, present and engaged when we are interacting, clearly someone who's in medicine to make the world a better place, one patient at a time. I couldn't ask for more.

Dr. Schatz is very professional, knowledgeable, caring and informative. He suggested an additional amount of daily Magnesium and the addition of Hawthorne to my daily regime for my AFib and it has made a SIGNIFICANT improvement keeping it in control. For the first time I found an MD who truly respected my natural health philosophy. Already I have told a number of people about the level of respect and the addition of another natural supplement and its benefits. I send out different videos to a wide range of friends and have sent a number of Dr. Mark Hyman's YouTube videos previously. Now I am adding the personal experience reference to them when appropriate. I am looking forward to working with Dr. Schatz and the team to get answers and provide solutions to get me back to a 100% healthful state. We can't go back a second in life but I know if I had found Dr. Hyman and your group 6 months ago I would be in a much different health situation.

Dr Shatz was eager to address my concerns. He was extremely knowledgable about my concerns and offered to do further research, contacting a colleague on the east coast, for one of my complex problems. I felt very comfortable with him being my doctor and I have faith he will research my problems to the best of his abilities. I look forward to working with him.

Dr. Schatz is an excellent doctor, and I can tell how much he truly cares for his patients, not just as patients, but as people as well.

Dr. Schatz is simply the best! He truly cares for his patients. He listens. He stays in communication with you after your appointment. He is always available to answer any questions. bacon tenuously does research to aid in the well-being of his patients. You need to hire more doctors like doctor Schatz. He is the example they should exemplify. He is simply the best!
