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.

Reviewed on Feb 8, 2024

Everything for my pre-op visit for 2/8 and 2/9 was scheduled by CleveClinic. For the most part both days moved like clockwork. My only disappointment was waiting to see Wang for an hour past the appointment time. A nurse took me to an exam room. After she took my vitals, I waited another 20 minutes before finally visiting with Wang. I expressed my annoyance to the nurse and the Doctor.

The visit with Dr. Wang was one of the best specialist visits I've ever had. Dr. Wang was exceptionally knowledgable about my condition, and went the extra mile (ten miles!) in answering my questions and addressing my concerns. Most impressive - evem though it was late in the day and he was running well behind schedule, we still visited for 40-45 minutes, and he answered a boat load of questions I had about my condition and procedure. Never seemed to get impatient.
