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.

This was a consultation and there hasn't been a decision yet about how we will proceed until a CT scan is done. I understood what the Dr was saying however I left there upset because im sick and I got the feeling he's not interested in helping me figure out why so that doesn't give me hope.

I can't say enough good things about Dr. Rosenthal. His professional confidence made me confident. His fellow, Dr. Emberton was very empathetic and easily followed Dr. Rosentha. This also made us feel completely confident. All of his interns and fellows were very kind. And, we saw physicians twice a day while in the hospital. We are very happy to have found the Cleveland Clinic.

I couldn't be more pleased with my appointment with Dr. Rosenthal. He knew immediately who could adequately take care of the surgery needed (a new procedure called POP, initiated at the Cleveland Clinic by a Dr. Rodriguez. Dr. Rosenthal even called the surgeon in the Weston Clinic and set-up an appointment to do said surgery within a week's time. I was impressed with the doctor's expertise and his caring manner.

Overall a good experience, the doctor was understanding of my problem, and extremely knowledgeable. His explanations were clear and easy to understand. My problem is I am 90 miles away from Clinic, a one hour and thirty minute drive for me.
