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 10/17/2023, Dr. Navarrete 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.

It has been a pleasure working with Dr Navarrete and the Bariatric's team. I'm very pleased with my results and the overall management of my care. I would have appreciated more one on one attention with Nutrition post op. I do not like the group meetings and didn't find them helpful. I'm a very private person and would have benefited from Private nutrition follow up. Other than that my care was handled In a superb manner.

No complaints whatsoever, as long as they listen to myself and other patients, and have interpreters available for the Hispanic community that are much much needed ,Love the fact that there's many cultures but we as Latinos have a high percentage here in the city of Cleveland, Ohio It's only fair to say that we(not all) need translators .

Reviewed on Feb 14, 2023

Dr. Navarrete was prepared and thorough about the upcoming procedure. He pulled up the CT scan and walked me through it, explaining what my problem was and how he was going to address it. Then he typed out his plan for the procedure and had me read it and sign in agreement. It really visualized what was going to take place and made me feel confident in his ability to do the surgery. His manner was very caring and he was also conversational with me and didn't seem to be in a rush. It made me very comfortable before surgery.
