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 10/3/2021, Dr. Qin 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.

Dr. Qin was amazing! She listened, she recorded, nodding her head in understanding- I knew she knew-explained everything and her recommendations. She adjusted to fit my more natural approach to self care. I haven't had care like that since the last time I was to Cleveland Clinic to see Dr. Abelson.

Dr. Qin was absolutely phenomenal. I have to say, one of the best doctor's I have ever been to. She was SO thorough. She explained everything to me, went through all of my medications and told me that a few of them could be causing the problem. She also showed me pictures taken at my EDG from both this year and last year, giving a detailed explanation of everything shown. She was not In a hurry, was so patient, answered all of my questions. You can tell that she really cares about her patients and wants to do everything she can to help manage what's going on with them. I was so impressed with her bedside manner, her knowledge, and her attentiveness. I've only seen her once, and the level of care she provided me was above and beyond. All of her patients are truly lucky to have her in their corner, advocating for them. And the Cleveland Clinic is lucky to have her!

The appointment exceeded all of my expectations. The provider and resident were very informative, compassionate, and developed a clear and concise plan of action for a condition that I have been dealing with for nearly a decade with limited success from other providers. Their diagnostic skill and time taken to fully assess the problem was impressive. The resident also made a clear effort to be genuinely validating of the experience of dealing with such a challenging issue for so long.

If I could pick one area to highlight as being truly exceptional, it would be this one. Dr. Qin answered explained everything very clearly and I left her office feeling like I had a complete understanding of my test results and our plan (yes, OUR plan, not just hers) going forward. Having that level of detail gives me peace of mind and I can't express how grateful I am that she took the time to do it.
