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 1/3/2019, Dr. Urban 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.
* Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists subscribe to the guidance presented in the PhRMA Code on Interactions with Healthcare Professionals and the AdvaMed Code of Ethics on Interactions with Health Care Professionals. As such, gifts of substantial value are generally prohibited.

I honestly felt like I was dismissed and shamed because I am overweight. Dr. Urban assumed before getting to know me that I only ate a lot of fast food and did not know anything about nutrition. When I told her that I actually cook all of my meals and and conscious of everything that goes into my body she continued to assume that I was not cooking the right things. I am just as confused as her as to why I am overweight/obese when I eat right and am active, however she did not offer any discussion of treatment or tests to try to figure out my problem. I did not feel cared for, just dismissed.

Dr. walked in and I placed my hand out to shake the dr.s hand and she just kept walking and said I'm not going to shake your hand you know germs and all then proceeded to use the key board and not wash or sanitize hands before examining me. very rude

I can't begin to state how thankful I am for Dr. Urban's care. I went through several weeks of not knowing what was wrong with me. She got to the bottom of my symptoms and issues and treated me efficiently and correctly. As a fellow CCF nurse and employee, she exemplifies WORLD CLASS CARE in action. Thank you, Dr. Urban!
