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 12/7/2022, Dr. Chen 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.

Dr. Chen went above and beyond his call of duty to explain his evaluation of my problem and why I'm not a candidate for his surgery. I was VERY appreciative of his frankness and honesty.

Highly recommend this facility and especially Dr . Chen

Reviewed on Jan 18, 2023

Background noise made communication difficult. I trust Dr. Chen's knowledge and ability but his bedside manner is lacking

Reviewed on Dec 21, 2022

I am very thankful Dr. Chen has been my doctor through two surgeries. He shows respect, patience answering questions and I am pleased with the outcome (currently healing from 2nd surgery). He takes the time to listen and explain the process, treatments, risks and options. I am very grateful for his work and guidance through the process.

Reviewed on Dec 13, 2022

Dr.Chen is the absolute best around. His surgical practice is consistently improving and evolving to care for lymphedema patients. He is a blessing, my quality of life has improved greatly since I met him. For this I will forever be thankful!

Reviewed on Oct 20, 2022

Dr. Chen is an excellent surgeon, which is why we traveled to the clinic. His bedside manor is not what I am used to from other surgeons I have been in the care of. Communication was not always the best.

Reviewed on Jul 28, 2022

Dr Chen was very knowledgeable about my condition. He is an excellent listener and I'm looking forward to having my surgery with him.

Reviewed on Jul 26, 2022

I've been to many doctors over the past 10 years trying to diagnose my swelling, Dr. Chen is by far the most knowledgeable and focused doctor I've seen. He shows plenty of care and concern for the patient and his focus on the issue is impressive.

Reviewed on Jul 21, 2022

I wish Dr Chen wasn't booked out so far for surgery but that is what happens when you go to the best!

Reviewed on Jul 12, 2022

Communication with Dr. Chen was clear and appreciated.

Reviewed on May 19, 2022

I couldn't have been more pleased with my visit to see Dr. Chen. He took his time during the appointment, listened to my questions, was very thoughtful and informative. Lymphedema is very scary and for the first time, Dr. Chen gave me a sense of hope and that he can truly help me! I feel very confident that Dr. Chen can help me and I highly recommend him to anyone who has lymphedema.

We felt informed and a active part of the treatment plan! Which was beyond refreshing considering past experiences. Thank you dr chen Erika and the entire staff for making this experience a pleasant one. And for not rushing us as we asked our questions!

I will definitely be and have Already recommended Dr chen to others in the lymphedema community. My experience was fabulous and I look forward to my next visit as we continue my treatment plan

Reviewed on Mar 16, 2022

My problem wasn't with the staff, it was with Dr Chen! I was in an exam room for 80 minutes waiting for him and when he came in, he didn't even apologize for making me wait so long! Plus he made me feel like I wasted his time! I felt horrible when I left! I hope he doesn't treat all his patients like that! Very disappointed!!
