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.

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.

Dr Yetman is very personable and professional. I have gone to him in 2003, after my first mastectomy, and again last year, for reconstruction. I am very pleased with his service and would highly recommend him. Also, his nurse, Denise, is wonderful as well.

Even though I was late Dr Yetmas made time for me. He was very thorough and answered all my questions honestly. I value honesty above all and I am looking forward to seeing Dr Yetmas in surgery as soon as we have an answer from my insurance.

I went in with a bad burn on my leg and the Dr and Nurse made me feel more at ease and confident about the outcome!

I didn't get and " warm fuzzies" with Dr Yetman. I think he was probably skilled enough to do my surgery, but I just didn't have a good gut feeling.
