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 11/2/2021, 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.

Visit was great! Dr. Joyce was thorough, took the time to answer my questions while educating the whole time. His approach was quiet and patient. I was at ease, felt educated and have the utmost confidence in Dr. Joyce.
Reviewed on Apr 1, 2022
I had some questions and concerns in moving forward in my recovery process from the Dec 2021 surgery and Dr.Joyce was extremely helpful. I found I needed to make critical changes in regard to increasing my daily intake of calories and after Dr. Joyce explained the changes I needed to make and why I needed to correct what I had been doing, I clearly understood exactly what I needed to do and was so relieved about the weight/calorie intake issues.

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.
