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.

It was a pleasure to meet with Dr. Alley for the first time and finally have a physician explain everything in detail, in a way that was not alarming, and pointing out any positive aspects he could find regarding my condition. Both my husband and I left the office feeling positive and good -- something we haven't felt since the initial diagnosis approximately eight years ago.

Same answer as the previous screens. It was a pleasure to meet with Dr. Alley for the first time and finally have a physician explain everything in detail, in a way that was not alarming, and pointing out any positive aspects he could find regarding my condition.

the doctor has yet to ask me what I do for a living, who I am other than a patient. he does not know my sexual orientation. he knows nothing about me other than medical condition. he is a great doctor but shows no interest whatsoever in anything other than medical condition. I am a disease, not a person.

During one of my chemotherapy sessions, I panicked and contacted the nurse who called Dr Alley, who came to the infusion unit and talked with me which calmed me down. In general Dr Alley was polite, knowledgeable and very patient from the day I first met him until my last appointment with him on 10/14/2019. EXCELLENT !!!!
