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 8/11/2018, Dr. Wilson 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.

I make my appointments with Dr. Wilson while I am still in the office. I have had difficulty making appointments with other physicians due to their inaccessibility. I don't mind seeing a physician within the same office, however I do not like seeing someone across town who does not know anything about me. I always see Dr. Wilson for my spine and he is a great physician and knows me. i think the schedulers are generally very good and pleasant to talk to.

I am very thankful to have Dr. Wilson's help. I have a fused spine, and considerable disc degeneration. Regular osteopathic treatments greatly improve the quality of my life. Before I started here, I was in much more pain and much more stiff. These visits keep me working, swimming, dog walking, and generally moving.

Dr. Wilson is the absolute best. I've seen a lot of doctors and nobody compares to his knowledge, experience, and bedside manner. He has been the most important person in my recovery in the past 3 years. I would drive a million miles to see him if I had to. Beyond being a wonderful doctor, he is an amazing human being.

I always feel like Dr. Wilson reviews my case and updates himself about where we were during the last visit and helps me to follow up. He looks at my answers to my survey before each visit and also checks on my pain level and challenges at each visit. He does a thorough exam and helps to try to relieve my plan and help me make and follow a plan to try to treat and alleviate my pain.
