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 8/31/2020, Dr. Joyce 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 Joyce was great! Very thorough description of my condition. He needed to do some more testing to get my exact diagnosis. He went through best case scenario through worst case scenario and his plan of attack for each. I left the appointment very confident in Dr Joyce's abilities to provide the best care possible. He has great bedside manner, and Is very easy to speak with.

Everyone we met including dr and nurse were very accommodating, knowledgeable and showed great knowledge

Reviewed on Nov 25, 2020

I really appreciate how Dr.Joyce treats me as a patient. He has personally called me to discuss my medical situation and has made time to discuss the recommended next steps for my long term care etc. He is very knowledgeable and professional yet down to earth, funny, and respectful. I like how he actually seems like he cares about my health and is more personable vs other doctors I've encountered at ccf. I really like Dr.Joyce. I've never had to consult with a surgeon before so it's new and a little scary but I feel confident in my care with him. He took the time to explain in detail about the surgery he would recommend for my condition. He even recommended getting a second option which i respect because it's a serious surgery.

Reviewed on Oct 23, 2020

Dr. Joyce was a very nice and caring provider and set me up for tests to determine what I have and how to help.
